Kemba Walker - WTF was that?

I am not going to overreact. Just last week I was talking about how Kemba Walker might possibly be the MVP this year.  But I need to know.  Kemba.  WTF was with you last night?

I dont want to bring up his name, but last night Kemba reminded me a lot of Kyrie Irving.  He was blocked at the rim how many times?  Maybe 5?  He had the ball stolen from him or just plain lost it maybe 6 times?  (I just checked and he had 6 turnovers, so that's a pretty good guess on my part).  And then what about his just flat out misses?  The box score says Kemba was 4-17 last night.  And yet he JUST KEPT DOING THE SAME THING OVER AND OVER AND OVER. No conscience whatsoever.

That is the last time I want to see that out of you Kemba.  I love having you on the team.  I love your effort.  I love your defense and I love your rebounding.  And usually I love your offense.  But last night you sucked. 

You need to realize that you are on a good team now.  When you get your ass swatted at the rim 3 times, how about you just get the ball to Tatum or somebody else for the rest of the game?  Beverly fed you your lunch last night.  That's ok.  The guy is a great defender.  If you can't score on him, I have no problem with that.  Just don't keep trying.  Don't do what you did last night ever again.

  1. I think he was desperate to generate some offense early, they were like 0- for a million early. After that I think he kept trying to play his game and they deed him up big time. He was not the quickest guy on the floor last night. Smart is amazing. That dive play where he hit Leonard in the foot and it deflected out of bounds.. Waoh. I also think there was home cookin in that game. But hats off to a great team in the Clippers.

    1. The Clips are a great team, and Boston is there with them (with Hayward). That diving smart play, ball off the foot, is a classic.

    2. Osborn that play by Smart that you mentioned. Seriously one of the best displays of athleticism and coordination that I have seen on a basketball court. Beautiful to watch.

Sign the Petition! Let's honor Tommy Heinsohn

  No longtime Celtics fan can watch games this year without a somewhat heavy heart. For the last 50 plus years, we have been blessed as a franchise to have Tommy Heinsohn, Mr. Celtic himself, as a part of the organization. Whether it be as a player, coach, or commentator, Tommy has been an instrumental figure for the green, and his presence is missed on every broadcast. Nobody embodied what it meant to be a Celtic more than Tommy, and I know I miss his energy and ferocity every time Scal claims the refs "made the right call" against the Cs. While Tommy obviously belongs on the Mount Rushmore of Celtics, he is often overlooked in his place among the greats of NBA history. Looking back upon his life, one would be hard pressed to find someone with a bigger impact on NBA basketball than Mr. Celtic. For those who are unfamiliar, let's do a quick review. Tommy is one of 2 people to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as both a player and coach (the other being the indomitable Len

We may be glad Danny Ainge rolled the dice on Theis

Frankly, I was not sure if Danny Ainge would ink Daniel Theis to a new deal, but it looks like a good move. Theis is signed for two years at a total of $10 million, with the second year non-guaranteed. With the departure of big men Al Horford and Aron Baynes, rolling the dice on Theis could work very well. In his first season in Boston, Daniel just kept improving. For the pre-All-Star stretch, he averaged 14.5 minutes/Game, 5.0 PPG, 4.7 RPG while shooting 52% on field goals and 30% on treys. Post-All-Star his minutes increased to 18.4 per game, his points to 7.8/game and his boards to 5.3/game. And he shot 68% on field goals and 40% on 3-pointers. Then a meniscus tear shut him down. His minutes and production took a hit last season, in part most likely due to lagging recovery from the injury. Right now he is playing on German's entry in the FIBA World Cup. In a game versus The Czech Rebublic, he scored 17 points, grabbed six rebounds, passed off for three assists and blocked tw

What Jeff Teague can bring to the Celtics offense

Bringing in Jeff Teague as some guard depth this year could end up being a monumental move for this year's Celtics team. Teague is a well respected veteran in the league, and having gone to the Eastern Conference Finals in 2015 with the Atlanta Hawks, knows what it takes to win tough games. Here's a brief look at why I think Jeff will be a great fit with the C's Every Celtics fan loves Marcus Smart , due to everything he brings to the table, from the defensive intensity to scoring outbursts. For all the good things he does, Marcus excels off ball, and can have his effectiveness diminished when he is forced to be a primary ball handler. He is often pigeon-holed into that role with the second unit (or when Kemba is out), and Teague's addition will hopefully allow him to play more off-ball and maximize his abilities.  At the deadline last year, Teague was traded to the Atlanta Hawks to play alongside Trae Young. His usage rate and effectiveness dipped considerably, as he
