Its Award Time!

The regular season ends with the destruction of the Memphis Grizzlies, all year we have given out this award to who we feel exemplifies Celtic Pride. The player or players that Tommy Heinsohn would give his Tommy Points to. 

A team that was under 500, has now finished at 51-31. That's a heck of a turn around. We saw each and every player grow and build into the ultimate team. JT and JB have solidified they are Studs in this league. The Wolverine has proven he can be the point guard of a great team. We have the two headed monster of Al and RWill with a side of DTheis. The bench should be feared with PP and GWill nailing threes off great passes by DWhite. Each and every player has contributed to the teams success. 

Let's look at a rookie Coach and GM as well. Early on we all had questions, then as Brad started to see certain pieces didn't fit got rid of em and brought in true diamonds. Steals of the trade deadline. Ime finally found a way to have this team buy into DEFENSE first and trusting one another on offense. 

Through all the twists and turns of the season we have watched this team become the most feared one in the NBA. Kudos to this group for having grit, grabbing that 2 seed and saying we ready for anyone! 

With that said we would like to award the team, Coach Udoka, and GM Stevens with the Celtics Sentinel Citation Award! To the owners of the team, we award them with these few words. Stop being cheap and be willing to pay the tax. You talk a big game but you don't follow through. 

Bleed Green! Celtic Pride! Banner 18!

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
