Opening Night!

As we get older life seems to keep us so busy we forget about the joys in each day. Waking up first and foremost, but for today it's the return of our Boston Celtics. Think back to when you were a kid and the excitement you felt for the game of basketball. Getting to watch your favorite team and players. For Celtics fans it's the gift of getting to see what this team can be. It's a long season so win or lose take what you will from it. Just sit back and enjoy getting a glimpse of what could be a special year. 

Tonight we will see what Brad Stevens off-season plan was. Trading away a fan favorite for a Unicorn. If that Unicorn is healthy, the NBA better watch out. Not only is he gifted offensively but he's no slouch on D. Plus he's going against the team that drafted him so he knows what to expect in the big apple. We also get to watch one of the better point guards in the NBA. It's a Holiday type vibe he gives because he's a very good gift giver in the form of assists. Plus his offensive game is more defined than our former point guard. Defensive is his specialty and expect him to cause issues for Jalen Brunson. 

No better stage than the "big city" for the Jays to unleash their improved games. Personally I expect JT to be in the MVP conversation. His game develops each year and nows the time to bring his best and the best out of his teammates. JB has signed that lucrative deal, so I hope he's been working on dribbling the rock with his left hand. Ultimately I want to see them work hard on the defensive end. Defense wins championships! 

Expect to see DWhite do Derrick White type things. Solid on both ends and doing the little things it takes to win! He isn't flashy but just a solid player who fits well with this group. I am excited to see Payton Pritchard because he's been darn good this preseason. With his new contract nows the time to prove he belongs on the floor. We all know what Al brings to this team, calmness and composure. 

Side note let's see if Coach Mazzullas strategy has changed. Now that he has some veteran coaches on his staff expectations are things will be different. Get your popcorn ready and jump on the ride that is the Boston Celtics! Banner 18 or bust... No Excuses! 

Bleed Green! Celtic Pride! 🍀☘️🏀

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?

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.
