My Kind of Town Chicago

C's enter Chicago with No Brown, Porzingis or Holiday. With that said they still have JT, DW, Al, PP and everyone else who has contributed this season. This team goes the extra mile for one another and it shows when guys are out. 

First 🏀

Luke saves the first possession and gets the first basket as his reward. An oop from DWhite! JT gets on the board early with a pure jumper. JT has been very aggressive getting to the cup with his left. C's lack of defensive energy is costing them early on. Bulls have a lead as Joe calls a timeout. I hope this timeout gets the fellas settled and ready to actually play. Sam with the three, a stop on D and here we go! DWhite gets on the board and that's a great sign. Loving the ball movement out of the timeout, C's have tied this game up and set to take the lead. Both teams are trading blows early on. All tied up after one. ☘️

Second 🏀🍀

Sam and PP looking ready to have a big second quarter. Both of them have the ability to score when called upon. Lately both have played very efficient basketball! I guarantee each will hit big shots in the playoffs for the C's. I love how these guys play for each other. No one is greater than the team itself. These guys have a mission and that's bringing banner 18 home. Derrick White has a sneaky quiet tweener game. Guy can hit shots from anywhere. I love what I'm seeing with the C's ball movement right now. I'd like to see a run here as we received last night in the second. Build this lead up to about ten or so before half. PP sees the entire floor so well as a point guard. Finds Sam for a corner bomb! Al gets a corner bomb and the lead is climbing. I love seeing JT attack the paint tonight. C's close out with a decent lead. 🍀🍀

Third 🏀☘️🏀

Cs are going to need to make some adjustments, if they want to win tonight. Tonight feels like it might go down to the wire. These Bulls aren't going away tonight. C's will really need to execute on both ends efficiently to win this game. What a block by big Luke! Some choice officiating, as Luke gets called for a foul. Joe calls a much needed timeout. Expect more from this group after Joe gets a hold of them. Great set as the ball finds its way to Al for three! OB with an incredible rebound, but dribbles the ball out of bounds. PP off the dribble is making Bulls defenders look silly. C's are in a dog fight. ☘️☘️☘️

Fourth 🏀🍀🏀🍀

 I think we are in for a barn burner, it's tight and here we go. I love how the C's came out in this fourth quarter. Executing like the best team in the league. OB for three! That's right he made one! C's are holding their own while JT is on the bench. The Luke Kornet oops are the absolute best! These refs have kinda sucked tonight. C's need to show they can execute in a close one, and tonight can be the night. Al has played quite an excellent game tonight. He's been having a very good year this season. He deserves a title! Big shot by DWhite! Another big shot by DWhite! The man is money! JTs past two possessions have been quality. One by scoring easily and one getting to the line. 


Bleed Green! Celtic Pride!

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
