A step into Celtics Fantasy prior to Game One vs. Nets

Even after 17 Title Banners, Celtics fans need a bit of Fantasy. Come with me for a few minutes

I want Tommy Heinsohn and Johnny Most broadcasting Game One between the Celtics and Nets tomorrow afternoon. Yes, I know they have both passed on, but can you imagine these two Boston "Homers" sharing thoughts on the return of Kyrie Irving and his Brooklyn Nets to TD Garden.

Many Celtics fans want this left alone, but I can't. It was Irving stomping on the center-court Celtics logo that did it for me. For those not aware, that Leprechaun logo was designed by Red Auerbach's brother, Zang. Okay, I also want Tommy and Johnny to get Red's take on all of this during half-time. 

Legend has it that leprechauns often engage in mischief. What better time to inject a few pranks into the Nets' offense than tomorrow somewhat after 3:30 PM ET. Leprechauns are also said to have a pot of gold hidden away, and that bit of gold known as the Larry O'Brien Championship Trophy does not belong to the 2021-22 Brooklyn Nets.

The Nets possess the 7th seed, while Boston holds the 2nd seed in the East. The Celtics need to win Game One tomorrow. They are now tough as well as talented, but they still need some good fortune. They could use some good luck from "Lucky", as well as some fortuitous blessings from above - from Red, Tommy, Johnny, Sam, K C, Hondo and many other Celtics no longer on a planet thought to be flat by a player regarded by me as a Celtics nemesis - Kyrie Irving.

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
