PreSeason Game Two


I decided tonight to take a look at the guys I feel will be impactful during the season. Along with a few guys who definitely deserve a longer look. Plus a guy I guy I feel may be on the bubble. I chose to leave PP off this piece because he's gonna be a huge part of our team this season. 

Svi Mykhailiuk is a guy who has some pretty damn good range. I was very impressed by his drive and kick to PP for three in the game. To me he has what it takes to challenge Hauser for minutes off the bench. C's paid him so expect to see him in the regular season with the big guns. Svi can get up as well grabbing a rebound and jamming it home like thunder and lightning! 

Brissett is a player that I love his energy and what he brings to the floor. He's a spark plug type player who can do a little bit of everything. That dunk he had the other night was off the chain! Dude has some game and it's going to be elevated playing with the Jays. 

Walsh had great steal on Randle who dribbles way too much. I've personally heard enough about Julius Randle. Walsh has the ability to be a guy who can come in and give fits on defense. I'd give him minutes especially on D. Let him harass guys you want to tire out. Let him be a pit bull for us! 

Queta has good size and really knows where he needs to be. I'd love to see what he can do alongside the big guns. He's long and built like a wide receiver but his solid basketball skills. 

Hausers shot has been terrible! He's my bubble guy at this point. If he doesn't get his act together he's going to get lost on that bench. Svi is on his heels as we speak. 

Banton has length and athleticism, I like his quickness and willingness to play defense. I feel he and Stevens can be interchangeable pieces off the bench. 

Stevens has moments with the Cavs last season and I feel he offers intangibles to this Celtics team. He and Banton can be interchangeable pieces in a very good way. 

No I haven't forgotten about Luke the true unicorn Kornet. He's going to have to log a lot of minutes this season and I expect him to come through. 

Alright I have to talk about PP, I've loved him since he was drafted and I love him still! The kid just has that "it" factor. He has no fear and just nailz. I fully expect him to make huge shots this season. Come playoff time he's gonna do something that will live in Celtics lore. 

Well the game ends in defeat, but there's a lot of promise on this team. Good luck to the Bruins who start up their season on Wednesday. Unfortunately the Patriots suck and it's looking more and more that Tom Brady was the reason for their success.

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
