Summer League Game Two

Jordan Walsh had a good first impression in game one... Let's see what he can do in game two. I personally found him very impressive in the NCAA tournament. He will definitely add a nice ingredient to the current Celtics. 

Walsh is very long physically, which on defense could cause issues for other teams. His offense needs work but he definitely has a lot of upside. His length allows him to get to the cup quite nicely. He may have missed the shot but the fact he can get there is evident. He definitely needs to bulk up, I believe that will come with training in the gym. 

I've already told myself not to get too high on any summer league performances. Unfortunately the regular season doesn't always follow suit. Summer League and pre season basketball are great to find diamonds in the rough. But sometimes players just can't translate those moments into the regular season. Not sure if anyone remembers Carsen Edwards going off in preseason.... for him that never happened for him in the regular season. His career in Boston was short lived and honestly I don't know where he is now. 

Anyone else waiting to hear about a Jaylen Marselles Brown deal?! Whats the hold up... Are the C's making a trade? Looking for more signings? Not in a hurry because they know it's gonna get done? I guess we should find out at some point. Sooner rather than later would be nice. As of now we have added a could be stud big in Porzingus. Although we lost two of our roughest and toughest defenders in Smart and Williams. 

Does anyone really want Dame in Boston?! I personally have always loved Dames game, yet his demands have left me rather annoyed by him. Not to mention not wanting to come to Boston. Sorry if you can't handle a blue collar city that has four seasons a year. If he's so set on leaving for Miami let em. Go enjoy the fake glitz of a sports town that is made up. Personally Portland should squeeze every last bit out of the trade. If the Heat don't meet it don't trade him. He chose to resign with you guys make him honor it. I'm so sick of guys signing long term deals and then running away. 

Well the C's have looked pretty decent tonight. Lots of guys who we may only see play in this summer league. Kudos to them for getting to wear the beautiful green Celtics uniforms. No matter what these young men do in life, nothing can take away wearing an NBA team uniform. Pretty darn special! You gotta love the fire with Walsh. Kid is out here playing hard! Love it! 

JD has some hops for a small guy! Going at the Wizards big and bringing the one handed hammer down. Wasn't pretty but is was effective. The only issue with him is he's behind, DWhite, MB, and PP. Only time will tell how this roster shapes up. Bleed Green!

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
