When we Mature, we Grow!

 MATURE- the state, fact, or period of being mature.

"their experience, maturity, and strong work ethic"

This may be a theme, but talking to my dad last night he says I can't believe how much Jayson Tatum has matured! 

Say what you want about the in the heat of moments when he questions the refs. If I were him I'd do the same knowing the bias refs have against Celtics players. 

For those of us who have been watching JT since he entered league, you can say this- that young man has grown each and every year. His game and his body have shown that each and every year. This season we are truly watching something special! 

Offensively the only holes I see are the fixation on the three, that's a team and league wide issue. Yet when he's on from deep NO ONE CAN STOP HIM! His ability to hit mid range shots is strong, when he posts up it's game over. Last night he hit a rainbow fade away that said Michael Jordan to me! His strength has given him the gift of getting to the rim and bringing the House Down! 

His skills as a passer are a clear sign of his basketball IQ, dare I say he's heading into Larry Bird type status there! He reads double teams, and just has a knack of finding the right guy. We always knew he had the offensive skills. Since last season and now his D is becoming elite! He also has no fear in guarding the other teams best players! 

In a few weeks I'll get to see him up close and personal with dad, and let me say I expect to see a very mature performance by him! 

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
