Has a loss ever been a win?



It's engrained in me to never lose, true story all through grade school I never lost a one on one matchup on the court. I took pride in that. It took me a long time to realize that losing happens, and I learned from those times. This Celtics team has lost the Finals and now they must let it hurt and fuel them to a title run next year. 

Look at Jordans Bulls, the Pistons were in their way and set them back which eventually led to a Chicago three-peat and Jordans ultimate greatness. In losing Jordan found the will to never want that feeling again. Then after he came back from baseball guess what his Bulls lost to the Magic. History shows he came back even greater and led the Bulls to another three peat. If I'm JT who is a Jordan brand wearer, I'm texting MJ just like Kobe did and picking his brain about everything basketball. 

Let's look at Celtics Lakers in the 80s Bird and Magic used losing to one another to fuel them in wanting to win the next time they played. Using each other as competition to drive their greatness to a new level. If I'm the Jays I'm looking at the team that beat me and using that to spur my career going forward. Like those Celtics of the 80s the Celtics have their Coach and GM locked into unleashing their greatness. Not comparing them to KC or Red, just saying they both have that opportunity to be great. 

We should all look back on this run as a step into what is going to be a long run. Beating teams with HOFs, MVPs, and defending Champs is damn impressive. If next year we add a few pieces and our team uses this loss as fuel and we finally claim Banner 18. Then we can say that a loss can be a win! Bleed Green! Celtic Pride!

PS Side Note a good portion of Boston Media is toxic and doesn't deserve watching JT and JB. Let's see how amazing you were at 24/25.

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
