This Group Just Feels Different

The TIME IS NOW... This season to me feels much different than last year. It also feels more comfortable than when we made the Finals. I was watching last night, and despite a slow third quarter start they found a way to finish that quarter with a lead. The defense went into another gear and JT said screw three pointers I'm getting inside and ripping that rim. If this was any other concept of this team that may have not happened. 

There have been a few unexcusable losses from my stand point but all winnable games. Except for the Bucks which was a loss from the start. This group I feel knows how to win. They also don't get anxious, I believe there is a confidence they can do anything. The addition of Jrue specifically gives me a feeling he is unflappable. He's so even keel and smooth like a great whiskey. That is going to pay dividends in the playoffs. With KP he spreads the floor in a way they haven't had in years. He's a threat on both ends of the floor. He as well is very even in his demeanor. The entire team for the most part has a solid cool vibe. The Jays show emotion which I love but in a controlled way. DWhite is a guy I would love to play with, he has ice in his veins and never lets anything get in his way. What ties it all together js Jedi Master Al Horford whose wisdom keeps them connected. 

I know Joe has his issues last season, but with his staff this group is instilled with the confidence they can do anything. What will be key going forward is securing home court advantage, keeping guys healthy, and giving everything to Banner 18. At the moment and of the day it's just a game and I know that. Yet there's something beyond special in the sports world when the C's win. They are THE FRANCHISE when it comes to basketball. We don't claim five titles that belong to Minneapolis, a bubble title and a manufactured in season tournament debacle title. We are the freaking BOSTON CELTICS!

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
