Calling all CelticsBlog readers!

New, comments

Here’s a fun opportunity to contribute to the blog.

For every Celtics game, we publish a game thread that acts as both a preview and space for CelticsBlog readers to talk about the game while it’s going on in real time. We have a very diverse audience and it’s always fun to interact and bounce ideas off each other like we were in a sports bar or a friend’s living room.

In the spirit of that camaraderie, CelticsBlog would like to start recognizing the contributions of our readers and their insights by highlighting a handful of game thread comments and posting them on our front page during and after the game.

For now, we’re looking for three categories: 1) a big play, 2) a stat or number, and 3) a quote from a player or coach after the game. If you see or hear something during the game that really stands out and you have an opinion on it, write a brief paragraph about it in the comments section and maybe we’ll feature it on the CelticsBlog cover live or the next morning.

For example:

“Wow. First bucket for the rookie and that slam shows the potential of what this kid could bring to the team. He’s a high flyer with nimble footwork. Robert Williams really is a time lord. Watching him get up like that reminds me so much of Shawn Kemp.”

Or:

Terry Rozier said before the game that he doesn’t know where the rumors are coming from and that he’s happy with where he’s at. Stevens has always been a big proponent for Scary Terry and I’ll bet down the line, we’ll see a strong stretch of games from Rozier soon. Whether that makes him a stronger trade candidate or building block for Boston is up to Danny Ainge.”

Be as analytical or silly or bias as you want. This is a safe space for Celtics fans and we’d love to hear from you. So, in the comments section of the next game thread (here’s a link to tonight’s game vs. the Cavaliers), make sure to include any video or tweet (even your own) that you want to feature and a short paragraph about it. If you have any questions, please feel free to post them below.

Thanks, CelticsBlog readers. Let’s go, Celtics!
