A sincere "Thank You" to our readers. We love every one of you.

 While the outcome wasn't ideal I'm forever thankful to this group of Celtics. My writings will always be geared to the Celtics and basketball, as you know lost my mom, cousin and could have lost my life this year. I started writing for Celtics Sentinel in the summer last year. Who would have guessed that writing about them would have been my escape and safe place. Writing about them brought me the therapy I needed after mom passed and when I was in the hospital it was my safe place. 

Now the outcome last night was not what we wanted as Celtic fans but when we were 11th in the East did anyone see this coming?! Tom and I had high hopes for this group early on and that never wavered.  Yet there was talk about trading everyone and firing Ime mostly from the Boston radio shows and other media people. Yet here at the Sentinel we stayed firm, didn't hide our frustrations but ultimately believed. 

We were part of a run that saw us throw Kyrie and KD out of the club, then in an epic 7 game series beat the defending Champs and Giannis. Then followed that up with exercising our bubble demons in beating the Miami Heat. Let's be real about GSW, they are a different animal and are willing to spend money! Hey Wyc you need to stop being so cheap. Maybe if you were willing to pay, we could have had a few more valuable pieces coming off the bench. The Warriors bench clearly outplayed ours. 

I'm so proud of this team, as the summer comes my goal is to examine our team and share with all of you. I also may dive into some retrospective pieces on past players like a did last summer. Needless to say I'm excited for our future! Celtic Pride! Bleed Green!

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?
