Tough questions after lethargic loss to 76'ers

      1st Quarter

      What was that quarter all about, lack of energy, not very good ball movement. The Sixers came out to play while the Celtics are still stuck in Indiana. Offensively I'm watching a bunch of guys just standing around the three point line and it makes me sick. This is a total turn around from what they did the other night. This team looks out of sorts tonight. 

     I usually like watching the games because it's a nice escape from reality but so far tonight I want to turn off the game and watch anything else! My mind is already drifting to tomorrow night vs the Bulls. Not to mention Pat's vs Bills. I hope the next few quarters can keep Celtics fans engaged. 

     2nd Quarter 

     We all remember the Where's the Beef Commercial?! WHERES THE D!!! What is going on out there tonight, we win a few games in a row and we stop doing what got us there? You finally get yourself  back to 500 and this is the effort Celtics fans are stuck watching! At some point the question needs to be asked - is Ime the right coach?! I feel we have a better roster than last season but we are lacking in the coaching department. 

     What a non offensive explosion so far, 35 points is all they could muster up. 11 turnovers, absolutely no flow at all! Philly is a decent team but they are by no way 20 points better than the Celtics. I hope to a man at the half they decide to play with some pride. If not they are going to get run off the floor. If they play like this tomorrow night it will be a massacre. Instead of just standing around the three point line take the ball to the damn hoop! 

     3rd Quarter 

     So far the fight seems to be there, the Celtics have come out with some more pep in their step. It would be ideal to get this lead down to single digits. They need to get down and dirty defensively, offensively they need to start pushing pace of play. Tommy is yelling from basketball heaven and saying RUN! 

     Brad as you watch the game, keep in mind you need to find better pieces for the Jay Team! Let's make a move or two so we can make a run. The East is good but it's not unbeatable. The only team I would be afraid of is the Bucks. Everyone else can be beat. You have two young talented stars now get them some help that compliments there game. 

     4th Quarter 

     Chip, Chip, Chip, slowly the lead shrink's. Celtics have begun cutting into the Sixer lead. Question is can they make it all the way back? If we read the signs on the wall probably not. Now we get massive substitutions, is Ime waving the white flag? Honestly save the Jays for tomorrow's game. Because today's game is a dumpster fire. 

     As you can tell, not very pleased with tonight's efforts. Your not going anywhere with games like tonight. When you put on the green and white, you better come ready to play. That was not the case this evening. Both the Celtics and Bulls are coming off a loss. Let's see who wants it more. Bleed Green I always have and always will.

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

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.
