Why these NBA Finals are good for basketball

     Bucks vs Suns is good for basketball and the NBA! While the main stream fan who is only into the big names will say this final doesn't have KD, Harden or LBJ so I'm not watching. Well there are plenty of reasons to watch. First let's start with the Bucks who have the Greek Freak leading them with other unheralded stars like Kris Middleton and Jrue Holiday. Hard nosed players like PJ Tucker and Bobby Portis Jr.

     The Suns are lead by Chris Paul and a burgeoning star in D Book. A true big in DeAndre Ayton and Mikal Bridges who can just about do everything. A blossoming coach in Monty Williams who has maximized this roster and they play as he did with heart and savvy. 

     Both the Suns and Bucks have had very long absences from the NBA Finals and both fan bases deserve to enjoy this ride to the fullest. These two teams represent the word Team. Basketball has and will always be a team game. Lead by stars but the pieces around them are more than just the other roster guys. 

     Historically these two teams have had many well known and lovable players. Hard working players, talented players who have made their mark in the game. What's great about both of these teams is they beat the so called super teams in the Nets and Lakers. This is good for basketball to it's core. Basketball is about the five players on the court working as one and when both of these teams are on we can witness that. 

     It may be Suns up 2-0 right now but expect a very competitive series as it enters game 3 in Milwaukee that fan base and building will be rocking. The Greek showed us in game 2 he can be unstoppable he just needs some help from Middleton and Holiday. Although Paul and Booker seem to be dominating, both Bridges and Ayton are not far behind.. 

     Here's to seeing an epic conclusion to an already refreshing NBA playoffs. We witnessed the rise of actual complete teams even with injuries, especially when we look at the final four in the Clippers, Hawks, Bucks and Suns. Basketball is a beautiful game and the more true teams we have the better it will be for fans.

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
