In season tournament...

Here's my Blount thought to an in season tournament. Is this a way to get either the Lakers or Knicks some type of "win". We all know that the bubble was set up for the Lakers to win and that's it. A true Mickey Mouse production, like they would for one of their princess stories. Only instead of a princess it was a self centered and self proclaimed in his mind goat... Leflop James. 

I will say this looking at the leagues cup tournament in MLS seems to be on fire. Lionel Messi has taken a crap team and is leading them to a tournament win. I've watched every game he's played and it's literally amazing. He's just so damn good. One thing the NBA has going for them is it's in Vegas. Who doesn't want to go to Vegas and watch NBA stars?! With that said beware of the NBA setting up a Knicks Lakers final. We all know how the league has helped those two franchises in the past. With the Lakers they get every call, and get guys traded to them for a bag of balls. Remember Pau Gasol... With the Knicks that "lottery" never felt right landing the number one pick for Patrick Ewing. 

Am I saying I won't watch, come on now. I love the Celtics, I love basketball. What I don't love is threes being jacked up, and coddled players using load management. Not to mention the constant flopping and horrible officiating. I was watching 91 game five Cs and Pacers and there wasn't too many calls that made me say it's being fixed. Yet plenty of games during the 2000s till now I would say the refs have fixed, or helped with the outcome they want. 

Prove me wrong NBA and please for the love of basketball don't allow either one of those coddled franchises to win this in season tournament.

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?
