Show Me The Money!

 Show me the money, anyone recognize this movie quote? I'm sure you all do... The Celtics and Jaylen Brown haven't reached an agreement on his potential max contract. Contract talks have been going on, yet they will be put of for a bit. JB is going overseas for I believe NBA player association activities. The big question is.... Is JB worth a super max? 

JB certainly qualifies according to the contract rules of getting paid. Have the Celtics low balled him? Did they offer him the max, yet no player option? Everyone believes JB sees himself on par with JT, do Celtics fans feel the same? I'm asking you are avid readers, give me some thoughts. Personally I feel any and every super max guy is getting paid an astronomical amount of money. When is enough enough... Do guys want to win or do they want their money?! 

Personally speaking if I played in the NBA I would want my money, but would also like to win. So I'd sacrifice my finances if it meant winning multiple titles. Winning brings in money, endorsements, sneakers, and so much more. Back to JB, if Tatum loves playing with JB then pay the man. Give him what he wants and let's get some clarity on this roster. I think the roster is incomplete right now. 

Given the current roster, you are relatively solid. Brown, Tatum, Porzingus, White, and Al or Rob could be your starters. Followed up with Brogdon off the bench. The time is now for Pritchard and Hauser to grow and become better players. The rest of the roster is hit or miss to me. Brissett should be a nice piece to give the Jays rest. Rookie Jordan Walsh will see some time, albeit limited time. Brad has work to do. 

Will the C's show JB the money... Or in the words of Aretha Franklin show him some respect.

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?
