Still irked at Irving? Then read this!

     Let's dive into a subject that may trigger plenty of responses from Celtics fans. How many Celtics fans said pre trade, even if Kyrie was available, that you wouldn't want him in Green. This writer felt that way originally. Ultimately when the trade went down Celtics fans were either pleased with what Danny did, or pissed. Giving up a player like Isaiah Thomas, who gave his heart and soul to Celtics fans, seemed wrong.

     Given Kyrie's talent on the court you have to make this trade, right?? At first it seemed it could be a great fit. He wanted to be a leader and step out of Lebron's shadow. The Celtics team he stepped into was primed for that. The question is, does a player's talent on the court out-weigh the rest? What Celtics fans saw off the court started to become dicey. 

     Celtics fans all remember, during a season ticket holders event, when he said, if you will have me I'd like to re-sign here. He also talked about wanting his number in the rafters. Not something to ever envision given what happened. Feels like a needle being stuck in your eye! 

     Eventually everything seemed to turn. Along this arduous turn there were cryptic things being said and happening. Fast forward to signing with the Nets. Which eventually led to a Celtics vs Nets playoff series this past year. Before the series ever started, he planted the racial card about Boston. Even though when he played here, never once did that come out. 

      Was that his way of preparation for being booed? Given this would be the first time Celtics fans would be seeing him? That's in each readers opinion. Just throwing it out there. 

     In game 4 at the Garden after their win, Kyrie walks to center court and stomps on the Celtic logo. Childish behavior from a player who hold himself in high esteem. Yet there were no Celtics players who manned up and took him to task. Celtics fans heard from plenty of past Celtics players who voiced their disgust. Those players would have sent a message on the floor in the next game. Yet come game 5 and it was crickets. 

     Following game-5 Kyrie, was glowing about Boston and it's fans even, after getting a water bottle thrown at him. Why originally throw shade at a fan base, then we are all cool afterwards. Is it because you won? Is it because you accomplished what underlying agenda you had? 

     Ultimately Celtics fans,  how do you feel? Should a players talents on the floor totally deflect from what could be looked at possible illness off the floor? 

     From this writers perspective, this trade ultimately hurt the Celtics. We had a great player who embraced Boston and brought in a player who did damage. 

     Next time anyone stomps on the logo, there should be a message sent. With some old school mentality! Marcus Smart do you feel us? With that said let's hope this Celtics team remembers that moment and go out there and beat the Nets this year!

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.

Nik Stauskas adds "shooting with size" voiced by Brad Stevens

 As a 6'6" shooting guard, 28-year-old Nik Stauskas adds that shooting with size sorely needed by the Boston Celtics. Drafted 8th-overall by the Sacramento Kings in 2014, Stauskas has bounced around to various teams since then. Nik Stauskas' deal with the Boston Celtics includes non-guaranteed salary for the second season in 2022-23, a source tells @celticsblog . — Keith Smith (@KeithSmithNBA) March 4, 2022 Nik has never averaged more than 9.5 points per game in the NBA, but Boston is most likely counting on his production for Grand Rapids in the G League as the incentive to sign him. In 17 games thus far, he has averaged 24.7 PPG, 6.2 RPG, 4.8 APG - while shooting 50% on field goals and 45% on treys. Nik Stauskas is signing a two-year deal with the Boston Celtics, his agents Mark Bartelstein and Andy Shiffman of @PrioritySports tell ESPN. Stauskas had an historic week, scoring 100 points on 57 and 43 point performances in back-to-back games for Grand Rapids. — Adrian Wo
