Why the Boston Celtics?

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

I've never liked basketball growing up, well. I don't like sports at all. I was in high school when a friend challenged me to an NBA live '08 and I lose the game. I don't remember the team that I used but I remember the star player that crushed my team, Ray Allen of the Boston Celtics. 




Few weeks later, I found myself installing the same game on my Desktop. In fact, I learned the game from the game, playing and fouling, pressing random buttons and later on I learned the right terms. 

After awhile, I familiarized myself with the game, with the team. The Boston Celtics. From Coach Doc Rivers to the sharp shooter, Ray Allen, the Defensive monster, Kevin Garnett, Franchise star, Paul Pierce and the evolving, Rajon Rondo.




2010-2011 NBA Finals. A match between a rivalry, Boston Celtics vs Los Angeles Lakers. It's the first time that I tuned in a Finals game, I'm so pumped that I even create a fan poster online. Well, we lost the series. But the was the time that I became passionate about the team. I learned much from their 17 Championship. The Bill Russell Finals MVP Origin and the story of sign and trade which creates one of the most dominating big three the Pierce - Allen - Garnett era. Eventually, that time came and the stars were getting old. Ray Allen leaves Boston to Miami, then, Doc Rivers signed for Los Angeles Clippers. At that time, Rajon Rondo, became my favorite player.  





During the 2014 season, the team trades Paul Pierce. Kevin Garnett Jason Terry and D.J. White to the Brooklyn Nets for Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks, Kris Joseph, Keith Bogans and future draft picks 2014, 2016, 2018 and the right to swap first round picks for 2017. It appears to be a dumb move by the Celtics, trading their star players for future, unsure, draft picks. Well, Danny Ainge is for sure a genius General Manager. It looks like Celtics were the one winning.


2018 - Unsure - More probably a high pick 


2017 - 1st Overall pick
2016 - 3rd overall pick - Jaylen Brown


2014 - 17th overall pick - James Young
Celtics Head Coach - Brad Stevens
And they had a new coach, the great Brad Stevens. After the trade, the Celtics looks awful. Their star player was Rajon Rondo (which was traded to Dallas Maverick for Jae Crowder) and Jeff Green (To the Memphis Grizzles) is the leading scorer. Several trades happened afterwards and young players have developed. They ended up with this line up. 



But Brad Stevens saw a potential from Isaiah Thomas, also known as Mr. Irrelevant (for being the last pick of the 2011 NBA Draft) and bring him to the starting line up. With this new line up, the Celtics ended up in the Playoffs. 

2015 - 7th seed - Lost to Cavs (4) in the first round. 
2016 - 5th seed - Lost to Hawks (4) in the first round.
2017 - 1st seed - Cavs leads 3 - 1 Conference Finals.

This is their current line up:

Isaiah Thomas - Top 5 MVP candidate, 2-time NBA All star, Mr. 4th quarter (Ave. 10+ points in the 4th) 3rd highest points per game in the league behind Westbrook and Harden. 
Avery Bradley - Became one of the best defensive guards in the league
Jae Crowder - One of the underrated defensive forwards
Amir Johnson - Defensive Anchor 
Al Horford - 4x NBA All star, All NBA Third Team.




The Boston Celtics still lacks something, rebounding. And there's too much disrespect from the league and the fans. But the real Boston Celtics fans know how they work. Because It's Not Luck. Seeing tweets, watching commentaries and hearing from other fans. They always mock the Celtics that appears to be winning by luck. And they always prove them wrong. Lead by Isaiah Thomas, who's proving something all his life. From being the last pick and the shortest guy in the league to becoming a scoring little guy and averaging more than 10 points per game in the fourth quarter (higher than 200+ players per game) and an elite star (2x NBA All star). 

They said that the Celtics will never overcome the Cavs in the 1st seed. They had the first seed.
Celtics down 0 - 2 against Chicago Bulls in the first round and I've been hearing sweep. They advances to the second round while our star player lost his sister in a tragic accident. 
Wizards in 7 against the Celtics? Conference Finals while Isaiah Thomas injured his shoulder.
Either of the 2, Celtics vs Wizard, they will still be swept by the Cavs next round. Just erased the 20+ point deficit with a game winner from Avery Bradley and without the star player Isaiah Thomas. 

I'm satisfied on where they are right now, they even had a chance to swing this playoff around. In fact, they destroyed an emerging NBA record for having 2 teams from both conferences sweeping they way to the Finals. But, if they will be lost against the Cavs, that's okay. They have the star power, LeBron, Kyrie and Kevin. And the team were stacked. We only have an Injured Star player and a former all star, but for sure after their stellar performance this playoffs. They will surely be more aggressive next season. Not to mention that they have cap space for Gordon Hayward and other star forward, emerging developments from our young players. Ahem, the first overall pick and the burning hearts of the Celtics.

We're not going anywhere. #ItsNotLuck #LetsGoCeltics

Lumia 640XL to Huawei G8

Wednesday, May 24, 2017

I've changed phones!



The first phone that I purchased myself, the fruit of my hardwork was Lumia 520. It's a low-ranged Windows Phone powered by Microsoft's Windows Phone 8 Operating System. It's cool and it's weird.
 



You see, as Google's Android and Apple's iOS grows massively, Windows Phone just got a reboot. They haven't find the groove yet even now, and because of that I felt like I'm out of this world. I mean, I have a very slow OS that I even signed up for the Insider Program where I can test new updates and features before release. 

And of course,  the never-ending, APP GAP. Let's put it this way, programmers don't like the OS. It's a waste of time, Android and iOS are the ones with the huge market and probably, if you're a smart businessman, you'll choose one of the two OS if not both.

Windows has a 2% share in the mobile market. Meaning 98% of mobile users is either on Android or on iOS.

And now, It appears like Microsoft is stirring it all up again. They ended the Lumia line last year and they're working on a new line of business. The rumored Surface line of Mobiles. The Surface Phone. We're all waiting for it, the Surface line never fails to impress. They have Surface Pro, Surface Book, Surface Studio and now, the Surface Laptop. 

They said that they will redefine "Phones" and they started doing it. They called Windows Phone 10 OS as Windows 10 Mobile. They even said that no more phones for Windows but a Portable Computer that can call and text.

You can search rumors all day online and I'm excited about it. Specially the UWP that they're planning. Well, while waiting for the "Device" that will change everything we knew about mobile. I'll be switching to it when the day comes.

In the mean time, I'll be working with this bad boy..

See You Around!

Friday, May 05, 2017

22 days a month, a consistency that runs throughout a year.  If you asked me if I'm gonna miss you, well. Let's just say that..

I can't enter the floor because it feels sad and nostalgic, empty chairs reminded me your uncertainty about the seat plan. And I can't eat at McDonald's for the same reasons, it reminded me of you. 

We shared hundreds of memories and I can still hear your laughs and the mockeries from your mouth. 

If you asked me if I'm gonna miss you. Let's just say that, for some weird reasons, I re-read our conversations to remember that you were all part of my life. Up and downs, teases and laughter, waiting for each other and surviving up to the end. 

It's just sad to know that you're not my office mates anymore but it's amazing to know that who I used to call office mates, became my really close friends. We shared tons of stories and helped each other make resolution.

You were asking processes, talking about escalations. We now talk about decisions and life. If you ask me if I'm gonna miss you, well. Let's just say that...

14 months, together with the bridges that we've built... It's gonna be difficult, for sure.












See you around then?

Baguio Trip

Friday, May 05, 2017

Apologies for the late post!

So, yeah. We went to the summer capital of the Philippines, Baguio City! And if I haven't discussed it here, well. Here you go. We have planned for at least 4 out of town travels this year.  So far, we have Mt. Batulao in Batangas now, in Baguio and this May in Ilocos. 

I'm super pumped with this trip as I used my brand new camera! The Canon Vixia Mini X. And this is the footage that I took, compiled it altogether, added some transition and some background music.


It was a very rough day since it's a day tour only. I don't have words for now, you can just enjoy the video and don't forget to subscribe to our Channel! HAHAHA! :)
