Sunday Basketball With My Familia

 There was a sequence in last night's game that just showed how damn good this offense is. The ball went from player to player with the grace of a majestic dancer. The defense could not stop it, the shot fell short but the movement was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! 

For all those naysayers giving JB crap, please hush. He showed that he is capable of doing what is needed to win. He's limiting his turnovers, he's getting his teammates involved, and we'll he's just a bad man! He brought the thunder with a one handed DUNK that shook the arena! 

The bench did their job once again, guys like Malcolm, Sam, PP and Luuuuuuuuuke brought the energy. Each guy knows their roll, and executed it! Kudos to Marcus and DWhite because they are just wonderfully players to watch! 

I am disappointed to have not seen JT play live, although I have in the past. I love this kid, I get resting the ankle. Yet part of me says after what I scraped together for these tickets, I want to see my guy. If you all remember in the Last Dance, there's a part where Jordans trainer basically eludes to that. These fans pay their hard earned money to see me and I'm giving them my everything. I believe JT would have played but there was an edict from the team. 

I've been open since I was given the opportunity to write here at the Sentinel. Last night meant everything to me. It rained like crazy, we sat in hours of traffic but in the end I was able to share watching Celtics basketball with my dad and family. Losing Mom last year put a lot of things into perspective. It reminded me to always trust in God and to live life to the fullest. Writing last season and now this season has given me a way to express my love for the C's! 

Bleed Green! Celtic Pride! 

I will be back to my normal style game notes tonight.

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
