I just wanted to say thank you so much for subscribing and believing in Parquet Post all season. Your faith in the site means more than you know. I felt like I figured some things out during the regular season and found a voice in the playoffs, much like the Celtics. I hope you enjoyed the ride.
Some 2017-18 highlights:
• The making of Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum
• The evolution of Al Horford is complete
• The Brad Stevens Origin Story
• Behind the NBA trade deadline
• Kyrie Irving and the business of an NBA superstar
We’ll return next week with a look at what made 2017-18 so special. Then, I’ve got big offseason plans, including exit interviews, draft analysis, free agency coverage and more Celtics stories you can’t find anywhere else. Next season will be here before we know it. We are also hoping to launch ParquetPost.com with Patreon’s platform integrated. More of the same, only easier to find (and share), so thanks for your continued support.
You’ll be glad to know your subscription fees raised more than $1,000 for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the New England Center and Home for Veterans, the ALS Therapy Development Institute, the Stoneman Douglas Victims Fund, the American Heart Association, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Autism Speaks and Help Sean Battle Cancer, all to benefit friends of friends of Parquet Post.
So, thank you. Really. I mean it. You guys are the best. Let’s keep doing it.
P.S. My favorite shots of 2017-18 capture the togetherness, ridiculousness, weirdness and toughness that made this C’s team so fun to write about:
I also liked that time Tommy Heinsohn said he saw all of Australia when he walked in on Aron Baynes in the shower. Long live the 2017-18 Celtics.
