The Time Is Now! Growth is a must!

Growth and what it means to the success of the Celtics, led by JT and JB better known as the Jays! Over their careers here in Boston we have witnessed success and failures, each of these things has led us to here, 2 wins away from Banner 18. The time is now for this team and these two studs. What they need to do in their games will dictate if this season ends in a much better fashion than last year. 

JB has shown he can go off at the drop of a hat, getting to the rim, hitting jumpers and nailing threes. We need to see him work on his handles, passing and defense and become elite at them. If he is as special as I believe his game will continue to evolve. If I'm Brad and ownership I'm offering him a max deal whenever he's ready. Last season he grew so much as a player and this season will be an even greater jump to becoming a guy we hold as an all time great Celtic. 

JT has shown he can go toe to toe with anyone! He has the skills to get to the rim, is able to hit jumpers, and can be deadly from three. His post up game and Jordan esque fade away need work but can become elite. We saw a huge step in his ability to pass the rock and expect that to become even greater this season. Defensively he's getting there, and can be a top tier defender if he wants. He as well as JB should be an all time great Celtic some day. I fully expect number 0 and 7 to be in the Garden rafters. 

As these two studs grow and flourish so will this year's Celtics team. As they become even greater in their skills so will the teams. Imagine when they take that next step in their games who are teams going to stop?! Along with this talented roster Banner 18 is a must! Add a few more pieces, stay healthy and play with heart and fire on D, continue to evolve on O and the sky is the limit! Bleed Green! Celtic Pride!

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?

One of those sources is Wikipedia, as seen below: Kevin McHale American basketball player DescriptionKevin Edward McHale is an American retired basketball player who played his entire professional career for the Boston Celtics. He is a Basketball Hall of Fame inductee, and is regarded as one of the best power forwards of all time. He was named to the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team.
