The Journey Continues

 Tonight is the night for the chance to go up 2-0. My piece on tonight's game is going to be different. I'll give you my thoughts right now pregame and what I'm able to watch later tonight. I will be late to the watch party. Personally I think a lot of what the Celtics did Sunday was good, but not great. They had some lulls on D and even on O. I expect tonight to be a much more efficient effort on both ends. In regards to Martins blatant dirty hit on Tatum, I expected it. Miami is notorious for playing and being a dirty organization. What I'm most proud about is Tatum getting up going to the line and showing no interest in their cheap tactics. I am also very proud of JB basically saying I'll do what I have to for my brother. This group values each other and the mission for Banner 18. In all reality I expect the Heat to be even dirtier in both ends tonight, but the C's will counter with haymakers on the floor. The C's will play even more inspired D and better offense. The proof will be in their play and not getting into the dirt war that is the Heats game plan. I just pray the Heat don't intentionally injure any of our guys. I know Riley and Spo would love to leave us as wounded ducks for the second round. 

C's have fallen to the Heat, after 23 threes pointers went down for the wrong guys. I'm not sure how to feel, especially when I wanted a sweep. KP had an odd game and the C's must play aggressively on D. I'm so tired of this Heat team and organization I really don't want to think or write about them. My hope is C's will run off the next three games and call it a series. A wise man told me never get to high after a win or to low after a loss. Which is what I'm personally trying to do after last night. As much as I love and bleed Green another wise man once said, these guys don't pay our bills. I have to remember no matter how big a fan I am in the end these outcomes are just passing in time. I really don't think they lose sleep over these losses as we do. With that said I expect better from the Celtics on Saturday and Go C's!

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?

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.
