Celtics vs. Lakers tonight - "Birthplace of Education" vs. lights, warmth and sunshine

 

     What is a rivalry? Found this definition, "Competition for the same objective or for superiority in the same field." We all know that the Lakers objective has always been to beat the beloved Celtics even if it means using refs to do so.  

Just look to the video evidence of game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals. The Celtics were robbed.  To this writer it seems the Lakers are always chasing the Celtics. One team does it the hard and right way, the other does it with lots of help, read: the Pau Gasol trade, plus many others. Players just gifted to them over the years. 

     The Celtics franchise is never gifted any players through trades or free agency. They always seem to be ahead of the curve and the architect of that curve was Red Auerbach - outsmarting everyone, Then it was Danny doing the same getting KG, and Ray, thereby making every other NBA GM gun shy regarding any trades with Ainge. 

     Never in any game or series have the Celtics had the benefit of having the refs in their back pocket like the Flakers have over the years. Especially in Game 7 which still haunts Celtics fans. There have been plenty of special players on both ends. We all know their names. 

      While this rivalry is the most known one in sports let's look at these facts down below. 

     In 368 meetings the Celtics hold a total 42 game advantage! In the regular season it's a 30 game lead, and in the playoffs it's 12. The Celtics also hold the longest win streak vs the Lakers at beating them for 18 straight games. Yes, it's a rivalry but it seems the Celtics have dominated them, despite help from the zebra's. The Celtics have also won all their titles in the same place BOSTON! The Lakers "claim" Minneapolis rings as their own, shameful! Lest we forget the BUBBLE DISNEY PRODUCTION!

 

     Bleed Green Celtics fans! Let's get those Beat LA chants going now! Celtic Pride!

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
