Knights KNotes Traveling To Charlotte

Quarter #1 🏀

No JT tonight, let's take a look at what we have with this group. JB is becoming Mr 1st Quarter, he's the match that lights the fire. DWhite is a guy that Celtic fans are going to love having the entire season. He's a swiss army knife player, who can do just about anything! He will be a guy that we remember being extremely special out there this season. 

Noah Vonleh posting up Plumlee is a sight for sore eyes. Gotta love seeing a big not jacking up threes and using some old school moves. Label me as a fan who would love to see him make the team and get quality minutes. Celtics have a been a bit sloppy on offense, while the Hornets have capitalized on the Celtics lack of defensive intensity. The lead is getting out of control. We have a Blake Griffin sighting, gotta love it! His hustle on D is a reason why he's going to fit in well. Plus he's willing to bang and go grab some offensive boards. 

Celtics trail by 13. 

Quarter #2 🏀🏀 

Let's talk PP, he may be undersized but expect big things from him this season. He's a confident player with the skills needed on the offensive end to be a microwave type guy. It doesn't take long for him to warm up. He can be deadly from outside, and very crafty getting to the rim. He's a guy to keep your eyes on Celtics fans! 

Watching T Rozzay it reminds me of that special 2018 run, and how big he came up vs the Bucks. Everyone remember him rocking the old school Drew Bledsoe jersey! Not to mention Drew wearing his jersey! Oh the beautiful basketball memories! Celtics D has tightened up a bit yet they still trail. Way too many turnovers for my liking. 

Quarter #3 🏀🏀🏀

Celtics have come all the way back, and own the lead. Great ball movement, and solid D have given us fans a reminder of this teams strengths. Sam Hauser's shot is going to be deadly this season. JBs play this preseason is a nice taste of things to come this year. 

Nice to see Kemba Walker, it's really sad his knees didn't give him the opportunity to flourish in Boston. One of the NBA s class acts IMO. A guy who had such  amazing skills on the floor. A guy who when he played for the Hornets killed the C's. 

Quarter #4 🏀🏀🏀🏀 

Brad Stevens has his work cut out for him, trying to finalize the end of this bench. We have witnessed some flashes by a few guys. Who do our Celtic readers want to see stick around?! Vonleh has my vote! We need that extra big to give Al a break. He and Blake Griffin can fill that role together until RWill is healthy. 

Something needs to be said that despite not having four of their top players, the Celtics still came out and won. Shows that they have some very good depth here. 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?

According to many sources, the Celtics Kevin McHale did indeed have an estimated 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. Wikipedia Born: December 19, 1957 (age 61 years), Hibbing, MN Wingspan: 8′ 0″ Height: 6′ 10″ Spouse: Lynn McHale (m. 1982) NBA draft: 1980, Boston Celtics (Round: 1 / Pick: 3) Hall of fame induction: 1999 Number: 32 (Boston Celtics / Power forward, Center) Kevin was listed at 6'10" tall when he was drafted with the 3rd pick in the 1980 draft.
