Who wakes up early on a Saturday to read a Celtics blog?

Who wakes up early to read a Celtics blog on a Saturday morning?  I'm not sure actually.  All I know is that I'm waking up early to write one.

Last night's game against Toronto showed me a ton....about my blog writing abilities.  Seriously.  Yesterday's game preview blog talked about how Pascal Siakam is a monster and how Jaylen Brown needed to play strong in order for us to win.  You all saw what happened right?


 Yesterday's blog also mentioned that Grant Williams would get some considerable run because he has the strength and the defensive footwork to guard Toronto's bigs.  Did I call it or what?

AT this point I just need to ask the question: Who is the best Celtics blog writer you read?  Who is putting out better content than me?  Two weeks ago I wrote a piece on Carsen Edwards being the best shooter on the Celtics.  Then the next day he goes out and nails 8 threes in a game.  So money.

My work for this Saturday morning is done.  The best Celtics blog writer you read is Jimmy in NH.  Tell your friends.

Note from Blog Owner, Tom Lane:

In case you didn't get to read Jim's pre-game analysis from YESTERDAY, take a look at some excerpts. Jimmy knows Celtics!

We all watched Pascal Siakam in the playoffs last year.  That dude took a huge leap.  He was awesome.  Athletic, fast, tall, rebounds - the type of player the Celtics will really struggle with from a matchup standpoint.  Then he comes out in game 1 vs New Orleans and puts up 34 points and 18 rebounds.  Who guards him? 

It has to be Jaylen Brown.  Brad Stevens needs to ask our new 100+ million dollar man to suck it up and play D and don't let Pascal score!  No foul trouble.  Just play solid D and box out a guy who is bigger than you.  It takes hunger and effort.  Some $100+ million guys don't have what it takes to do the small stuff in a game like this.  Does Jaylen? The people who have been defending his huge contract hope so.  So do I.  Or else we might be looking at an 0-2 start.

SIDE NOTE: I'm hoping Jaylen steps up and does the job but if he does'nt, tonight we might get to see a considerable amount of playtime for Grant Williams.; Grant has the strength, focus, and sound technical footwork to make it difficult for a guy like Siakam.  Hopefully.........

Did the Celtics Kevin McHale really have a wingspan of 8-feet?

According to many sources, the Celtics Kevin McHale did indeed have an estimated wingspan of 8-feet. One of those sources is Wikipedia, as seen below: Kevin McHale American basketball player DescriptionKevin Edward McHale is an American retired basketball player who played his entire professional career for the Boston Celtics. He is a Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, and is regarded as one of the best power forwards of all time. He was named to the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team. Wikipedia Born: December 19, 1957 (age 61 years), Hibbing, MN Wingspan: 8′ 0″ Height: 6′ 10″ Spouse: Lynn McHale (m. 1982) NBA draft: 1980, Boston Celtics (Round: 1 / Pick: 3) Hall of fame induction: 1999 Number: 32 (Boston Celtics / Power forward, Center) Kevin was listed at 6'10" tall when he was drafted with the 3rd pick in the 1980 draft. Red Auerbach, in yet another heist, brought in both McHale and center Robert Parish (via trade) prior to the Celtics' 1980-81 Champion

In defense of Marcus Smart

 Let me make it clear first of all that I am totally against making a threat of any kind that even hints at harming, or certainly killing, another human being. Marcus Smart was wrong in doing so in the Celtics loss to the tanking Oklahoma City Thunder , and he deserved the one-game suspension. But to be honest, part of me loved that it occurred. . This type of thing can happen when a player gets to a point "beyond frustration" and is having a bad game. Marcus and his teammates have been under-performing generally - were in the process of losing to a pathetic-and-tanking Thunder team - and Smart was having a bad game . And he let loose verbally at the closest target - an NBA official. Wilt Chamberlain did a similar act versus referee, Earl Strom when Wilt was having his usual tortuous time at the free throw line (per Chicago Tribune's Sam Smith): ''He was in one of those 1-for-13s,'' recalls referee Earl Strom. ''Nothing was getting close. S
