Denver on the cusp of a title.

Originally I was not going to watch the NBA finals because I felt as though I needed to mourn the Celtics. Thankfully my wife said you're watching it to see the Heat get beat. I owe her a big thank you because Jokic, Murray and these Nuggets play the game the right way. This group knows their roles, plays D and doesn't rely on the three ball. Unlike our team that shoots too many threes, guys don't know their roles and our coaching failed us. 

Jokic is a walking triple double and he trusts his teammates to do the right thing. Murray has no fear at all, imagine if we drafted him instead of Brown? Just food for thought.... Aaron Gordon has shown me that on a good team he's a very good role player. KCP and Bruce Brown are defensive minded guys and can also hit a few shots for you. Uncle Jeff Green is a great piece and presence to have on that bench. This Denver team is who the C's should want to be. Handling a team beneath you and kicking their behinds. 

Most of these Miami players have come back down to earth, in big part to Denver's defense. Also because they aren't that good. Martin, Vincent, Strus, and Robinson are who they are. Just average players at best. Kudos to playoff Jimmy for carrying these jags but he may never win a ring. In all honesty I'm pumped for tonight because it means we get to see Pat the Rat Riley walk off in defeat. 

I like the hiring of Charles Lee as the C's bolster the coaching staff. Still work needs to be done... C's also need to think about some roster changes. They really need to bring guys in who compliment the Jays games. If I'm the C's I'm calling Chris Paul. Is he the Uncle Chris we need as the Nuggets have Uncle Jeff?! Let's see....

Go Nuggets! 

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?

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.
