Is Jimmy Butler Good or Bad for the Celtics?

With rumors of Jimmy Butler coming to the Boston Celtics, there are mixed feelings as to whether this rumor would help the team.

Is Jimmy Butler Good or Bad for the Celtics?

If you thought a team like the Boston Celtics couldn't get better you've thought wrong. Kyrie Irving, Jaylen Brown, Jason Tatum, Al Horford, Aaron Baynes that lineup seems dangerous. A perfect balance of scoring, defense and rebounding could lift this Celtics team, quite possibly, to another NBA finals.

With that being said, there have been rumors of Jimmy Butler coming to the Celtics. From a fans perspective, you think this is a fantastic idea, having Irving and Butler, both NBA all-stars, playing on the same team. However, from a coaches perspective, this may seem like a challenge.

Butler, 28, provides both youth and scoring, which the Celtics desire. Standing at 6'8" he provides a solid defense that the Celtics also desire for the wing players. Averaging 23 points per game and starting to head into his prime, the Celtics are drooling over the opportunity to acquire this player, not seeing what NBA potential has been tapped yet.

On the other hand, the problem with acquiring Butler is that the team would have to bench one of their young, talented soon-to-be-all-stars. They would have to either put Tatum or Brown on the bench, neglecting their talents to be the future of the Celtics. In addition, the Celtics are looking more for power forwards and centers that play like Aaron Baynes. Tough, physical, always grabbing rebounds. They don't really need someone like Butler since we have guards like Terry Rozier and Marcus Smart that have shown us what they are capable of.

All in all, I do think that getting Jimmy Butler would be a splendid idea, but I believe we don't really need him. With what we're giving, I strongly think that Jimmy Butler would have a much better on a team that needs that superstar, like the Spurs or the Heat.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
