Kyrie Irving is back in town. He needs to start making sense!


Kyrie Irving is back talking to the media after being handed a $25,000 fine for not doing so.  But he's still not making a lot of sense. As I wrote earlier, Kyrie only plays with the media when it suits him, and apparently avoiding further penalties suits him just fine. Here is some of his latest gibberish, which as usual, makes little sense (per FoxNews' Paulina Dedaj):

Irving’s message was the same on Monday, but he explained his hesitation to talk with reporters.

"It's really just about how I felt about the mistreatment of certain artists when we get to a certain platform of when we make decisions within our lives to have full control and ownership ... We want to perform in a secure and protected space," he said.

There is no such thing as a "secure and protected space" - certainly not for "certain artists" that love to be in the spotlight, but only when it works for them. For movie stars, rock stars - and NBA superstars - that light is on all the time.

 As one of the "pawns" mentioned in Irving's  shaky rhetoric, I await what occurs this evening when Kyrie's Brooklyn Nets come to Boston. My guess is that he will interpret most media questions as "mistreatment" and spew quasi-proverbs that even he can not understand - let alone us pawns. I welcomed his arrival to Boston - was optimistic about his role here - and had few negative slants when he left Beantown. That changed recently. He needs to start making sense!

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
