Today is my last day at BostonSportsJournal.com.
It has been an incredible journey for the past three-plus years at BSJ, which started officially as I was on a plane with my wife to celebrate our honeymoon in July 2017. The launch of the site happened to overlap with our week-long getaway and my better half was the most understanding spouse ever, allowing me to weigh hypothetical scenarios in which the Celtics would be able to trade for Kyrie Irving before our trip officially began. From that blockbuster trade all the way to the bubble, it’s been a hell of a ride covering this team for BSJ and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it.
I have a lot of people to thank: Greg Bedard first and foremost for the opportunity to join this place from day one and become a part of a terrific site and community. My fellow writers, Sean McAdam and Conor Ryan are tremendous on their respective beats and have both been incredibly kind and helpful to me over the years. Dr. Flynn for providing crucial insight on player injuries (of which the Celtics dealt with far too many of in the past few years).
Most importantly, I want to thank you members. It has truly been a privilege to write for you day in and day out for the past few years. Whether it’s been interacting in the comments, Q-and-As, Twitter or over email, you have always brought great insight, perspective and support to my coverage. Saying goodbye to you is tough, but I hope we will continue to cross paths. You can follow me on Twitter or drop me a line here. The Winning Plays podcast will live on as well and I'll still be on the Sports Hub Celtics Show with Jim Murray and Chris Gasper on Saturdays as well at the Sports Hub.
I’ll still be on the Celtics beat in my new home at MassLive (I begin next week) but the other good news? BSJ Celtics coverage will remain in great hands (Greg will keep you posted on that later today). As for me, I’ll still remain an active reader of all things BSJ for the terrific work that’s put out daily here. You’ll probably even catch me chiming in the comments.
In the meantime, don’t be a stranger and thanks for everything.
