Ben-to-Boston for Jaylen Brown? No way should that happen!

      Who decided that putting out a Jaylen Brown for Ben Simmons trade is a good idea? Not the Celtic Knight I'll tell you that. When the Celtics drafted JB, . Fun fact: My father and I went to that first preseason game of JB in Amherst. We came across Jerry Colangelo at the time and asked him about JB, His thoughts were he wasn't that high on him. My thought at the time was sour grapes. JB came out and had a few thunderous dunks. 

     Let's start with Ben Simmons. The man can't shoot! He also doesn't seem like a very tough minded player. If he can't handle Philly, Boston Celtics fans will eat him alive. He's a very string defensive player, and can pass the rock efficiently, but other than that he just doesn't get the basketball juices flowing. 

     JB has grown every year he's worn Green and White. He came into the league a raw athletic talent, and he has turned himself into a complete player that continues to grow! He has a wonderful skill of getting to the hoop with ease. When he gets there he finishes smoothly, and when need be with authority. Just ask the Hornets. His midrange game is nice, and when on, his three point game is deadly. We have also watched him carry the Celtics on his back when JT is off. 

     Now if Simmons wants to be here to distribute to JT and JB I can wrap my head around that. There is no way Brad gives up JB to get Simmons, but if he does, Brad may need to be evaluated. Celtics fans know we need to add more talent to our team, not take it away. In today's NBA it's hard to attract talent, we need JT and JB to be the cornerstone's and build around them. Remember one thing fans - both of these ballers are still so young! Bleed Green, and if someone says Simmons for Brown kindly walk away shaking your head. Unless they can convince you other wise?

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
