Celtics are sailing. Nets are flailing.

      What if I told you the Boston Celtics have the same amount of wins as the Nets, with KD, the Beard, and half a Kyrie. What if I also told you the Celtics will leap frog them in the standings this season. 

     What if I also told you that I feel the Celtics are a better team than the Nets! The Celtics play great defense and are surging as one of the best defensive teams in the league. 

     The Nets are 2-8 over their last ten games. Is the turmoil surrounding Harden the issue?! Or is it that pain in blank Kyrie whose return seems like it's failing like I did in Algebra. Sometimes talent doesn't outweigh the other things and he's a prime example. What if I told you that it's deserving of the Nets and Kyrie to be on a 7 game losing streak after what he did to the Celtics and to the Garden floor last season. 

     I will say this, I know KD is an amazing player, but even he can't save this team. That's because those three stars are a poor mix. They are only about themselves and not about the team. While our beloved Celtics are becoming a true team, coming together and picking each other up game to game. 

     Watch this month Celtics fans and our avid readers. By the end of this month we will have a team fighting for a spot in the top 5 of the East while the Nets will be lucky to make the play in game! 

    This writer has had his moments with this team under-performing, but now they are winning games they would usually lose. All we need is a move or two from Brad to get us a backup point guard, and a bench scorer to go with JRich. Track this months win totals because it's going to be something as we March towards the top!

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
