We have a "Big" announcement!

     While last night's outcome wasn't what we expected or wanted, there are some positives to take away. You ask - what are those positives? Check out these stats! From Horford and Williams III, a combined 29 points on 65% shooting from the field, 50% on 3s. 22 boards (8 offensive) - 5 assists - 2 steals - 5 blocks and only 2 turnovers. Now that's something we can all get used to game in and game out! My compliments to Tom putting these numbers together. 

     We have the smartest readers out there, so as you can tell our Sentinel Citation Award goes to? Drum Roll please, Al and Rob the two headed "Big" monster
 
     Al did it all last night, honestly he looked like a younger version of himself! He was crashing the boards, hustling for rebounds and getting his hands in there defensively! He posted up and nailed some threes. He got the crowd into it. Let's not forget he blocked Harrell twice in one play, oh wait they called a foul. Al's career is having a great second act with Boston

     RWill is just a jack of all trades! Rebounding, tips, just keeping balls alive - his work ethic is wonderful. His passing is pretty stout, and he just needs to develop more of a post up presence, maybe Kevin McHale or Robert Parish will fly down and coach him up? His alley oops are thunderous! His defense is solid. This young fella truly works hard. 

     We here at the Sentinel feel that past Celtic greats would look at the "Bigs" and concur with us awarding them. Now we just need to see the Ws roll in! Bleed Green!

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
