One Final Tune Up!

C's are in Charlotte for one final tune up! Jrue Holiday is going to impress every Celtic fan this season. He may even make you forget Marcus Smart... Marcus played the 1 but he was more of a 2. Jrue is a true 1, which means he will keep the ball longer as a floor general. Marcus used to give the ball up before things could really settle in. I'm not saying Marcus did a bad job, but pay attention to Jrue this season. He's a stud point guard!

Can we talk about Z's D, a very underrated part of his game. Everyone knows about the injuries and his offensive skill set. Watching him over the years he has the ability to guard 4s and 5s. He also can play D against the 3s, something that should be applauded. His length causes issues for whoever he is guarding. Expect him to be the green hole for anyone driving against him this season. 

I love how Joe is using both PP and Sam I Am at the same time. Someone is going to end up getting some damn good looks this season. Both guys can be deadly, and each guy has individual skills that set them apart. Despite both guys missing early the looks they are getting will lead to a lot of points this season. 

I can't wait for Wednesday night, given it's the Knicks on the road we better destroy them! After how they played us last season, we need to put them in their place early! I expect a team out for blood. This is a new era of Celtics basketball, led by Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Time to bring it home this season! 

Bleed Green! Celtic Pride! 

PS HOW ABOUT THE JB THUNDER JAM!

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
