Firing off some random thoughts.

 The Detroit's Pistons have hired Monty Williams as their next head Coach. Monty had a nice run with the Suns but lost in his only Finals appearance. I wonder if him getting fired in Phoenix has anything to do with Kevin Durant being there?! Personally I feel Detroit has a good voice to coach their young talent. Unlike the C's who have a three point happy coach in Joe Mazzulla. 

Joe Mazzulla is going to lose members of his coaching staff to Ime Udoka and the Rockets. I don't blame those guys at all, if it were me I'd run from Joe's three happy offense and lack of defense and in game adjustments. C's are going to need to add several veteran coaches as a crutch for Joe. Hopefully they can stress to him that stupid stand behind the three point line offense. Let's miss over thirty threes and keep shooting more. Angers me to watch such a poor basketball product. 

Nick Nurse heads to Philly if anyone can maximize Embid and that team it could be him. Question is will Beard of Flops Harden bounce back to Houston?! Bucks have hired Adrian Griffin who in fact played for our Boston Celtics. I personally like this move a lot for Giannis and the Bucks. 

Tonight should be the night the C's host the Denver Nuggets and yet that's not the case. Forget you Wyc this falls on your shoulders for thinking anyone can coach this team. Brad you own some of the blame as well. These players aren't exempt but if Tatum doesn't get hurt I guarantee he has a transcendent game. With thats said here is Hopes pick for the NBA Finals. 

Not to mention Nikola Jokic is an Orthodox Christian and so am I. Go Nuggets! Also been a fan of Murray he has no fear!

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?
