C's welcome back the Warrior Marcus Smart


 C's have welcomed back their Warrior Marcus the Wolverine Smart. Despite the fact he isn't playing his presence is felt. 

1Q 🏀 

We have a solid quarter from the C's, that should be a welcome sign given how they played on Thursday night. We saw some pretty good ball movement in this first quarter. I was a bit distracted as we celebrated the 93rd birthday of my Yia Yia. Talk about the rock of the family. She's been thru and seen it all. C's are playing well but giving the Grizz life as they are still on the game. C's lead after one. 


2Q 🏀🏀

C's still can't separate themselves from this Grizzlies team. They keep fighting and making the necessary plays to stay alive. I'd like to see JT take over and elevate his teammates to blowing the doors off this team. I was pleased to hear from Glenn Ordway who was around the 85/86 C's and he said they didn't have that killer instinct every game. Not that I'm condoning it but it's human nature. With that said I'm pleased to say the C's came back out and did what needed to be done. KP decided to go off and show why Marcus was shown the door. C's lead by 20!

3Q 🏀🏀🏀

Memphis has no answer for KP tonight. JT is rolling and it seems as though they learned a lesson from the other night. Don't play with your food and it won't come back to eat you. C's should be able to complete this win. When both KP and JT are balling your ability to win goes up. We may not see any of the starters in the fourth. Overall much better effort tonight then what we saw Thursday. C's lead after three.

4Q 🏀🏀🏀🏀

C's came to play somewhat tonight and it shows with the score. On to the next game I believe vs the Hawks. They tend to always challenge the C's. This home stand ends with the Wizards and then we journey to Miami for Superbowl Sunday. 


Celtic Pride! Bleed Green! 


Even though I feel the trade of Marcus Smart was necessary, he will always have a special place in my heart. The man bled green like no one else in an era where players move around. He left everything he had on the floor and will be remembered as a great Celtic.

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
