Raptors Invade TD Garden! Toronto vs Boston!


 We have some basketball for you tonight! Raptors Invade the Boston Garden to take on the Celtics! 

Congrats to Jaylen Marselles Brown on winning the Red Auerbach Award! A well deserved honor to get that award names for the Greatest Coach of All Time! Nice to see Rob the Lob out there. He's is going to need to be fully healthy this post season. If he is the C's will be the team to beat! He does so much on both ends. An excellent rebounder, defender, and Tommy point getter! 

Jaylen Brown has to be one of the quickest players getting to the basket. It's like watching lightning but in the form of a basketball player! We are going to need that type of aggression all playoffs. If he is in attack mode, no defender will be able to stop him! His game has come a long way this season and expect greatness in the playoffs. 

Derrick White has been a jack of all trades this season. He's a stud/star in my book. He has all the offensive tools in the shed necessary to win. His defense this season has been all world! He has been a machine when coming to blocking shots. He's pretty good at getting steals as well! I absolutely love his professionalism, and his herky jerky style. I expect big things in the playoffs. 

Malcolm Brogdon has been an amazing amazing addition to this team. His skill set and abilities in this game show why I love him! He's become an assassin from deep, and he can get inside at will. He's been a damn good passer this season and defensively he's tough as nails. He reminds me of Dennis Johnson... 

Blake Griffin has entered and I adore him as a Celtic. He's been what a true Celtic should be. Selfless on the floor and willing to give up his body for the team. He's been Mr Tommy points lately. This dude deserves a ring and this C's team better deliver! Expect Blake to play a role especially if we see the Bucks at some point. 

Tonight the C's looked good on defense which is what it will take to win Banner 18. The moved well, and were quick on their switches. If they can ratch it up this post season like last year, they will come away with a ring! Offensively they looked good, yet had a drought. You can't have those moments in the playoffs. Someone needs to be that guy who will end those scoring droughts. Both Jays need to get to the rim in those situations. 

C's with a quality win despite being undermanned. We have two games left to the regular season. Let's finish everything up healthy. Do what needs to be done and be ready for the biggest playoff run of your lives. C's are now officially locked into the second seed. It won't be easy but this team is capable of anything! I fully expect to see Philly and the Bucks yet again. 

Bleed Green! Celtic Pride!

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. Red Auerbach, in yet another heist, brought in both McHale and center Robert Parish (via trade) prior to the Celtics' 1980-81 Champion

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
