Thoughts from the Celtics Knight

 Trade deadline today, will we see any minor moves by the Celtics?! A wing and a big?! Or are we waiting for the buyout market?! It's been busy already with the Jazz, Fakers, and T-wolves three team deal. Kyrie heading to Dallas and KD heading to Phoenix. Unfortunately I think the Fakers make out in their deal. The Mavs and Suns on paper make out. Although the Nets have accumulated a group of guys who have various skill sets. 

Huge huge huge shout-out to Blake Griffin for always being ready to do what's needed. The C's had come out flat last night and after a few threes from Blake that energy shifted. You have to love a guy like Blake, who once was a star but now is your utility guy and is always willing step up. His defense on Embid was solid, his rebounding was sound, and let's face it he was an assassin from deep. Love guys like this! 

DWhite has proven to be an invaluable piece to this Celtics team. He's a solid point guard when needed, he can shoot the three, get to the hoop, and make the right passes when needed. On defense he's been spectacular! Defending like his life depends on it. Blocking shots like he was shot out of a cannon. DWhite will be a huge piece in the playoffs, expect him to be a key contributor in multiple wins. 

Shout out to Sam Money Man Hauser! Dude has found his stroke after getting the start in Detroit! Last night he was huge and his shots were pure! Nothing but net beauties! He's also rebounding and playing decent D for a guy teams pick on. 

Anyone else sick of hearing about the scoring record?! When Kareem held it, it definitely had value given his offensive game. Imagine if he didn't go to college and jumped to the pros that record would have never been broken. The person who broke this record only cares about one thing himself. That's evident in his team losing to the Thunder while setting this record. I saw somewhere a visual of iconic shots. One was Jordan vs the Jazz in the Finals, what was that result ring number six! The other was a shot of a man who's team was getting destroyed by the OKC Thunder who are above them in the standings. Result a loss.... 

Anyone else pumped for next Tuesdays clash of the Titans?? Bucks vs C's! Tatum vs Giannis! 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.
