Bucks Pat Connaughton brings Championship trophy home to Boston area

Pat Connaughton with the much-deserved Larry O'Brien Trophy

Milwaukee Bucks' guard, Pat Connaughton, is back home in the Boston area, and he brought the recently-won Larry O'Brien trophy with him. He was born in Arlington, Massachusetts and attended St. John's Prep in Danvers where he starred as a 3-sport athlete, prior to attending college at Notre Dame.

The 2020-21 season was his sixth in the NBA, and the do-everything guard helped bring a second Championship to Milwaukee. How valuable was Connaughton to the Bucks cause in winning the Title (per behindthebuckpass.com's Bradshaw Furlong)?

Connaughton had a great regular season, put together an even better playoff run, and was an invaluable member of the rotation in every playoff series. The Bucks don’t win the championship without Connaughton, that’s probably something everyone can agree with.

So Pat came home to the Boston area, bringing not only the Championship trophy, but an unspoken message to his hometown team, the Boston Celtics. Connaughton and his teammates relied on tough defense, ball movement and unselfish team play to earn their Championship rings. Ime Udoka and his crew in Boston can take a lesson or two from the Bucks successful season.

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
