The Morning After...

Not sure about anyone else but this sure sums it up. JT overcome with emotion and Al right there with him. I'm damn sure most C's fans were emotional seeing JT like this. Afterwards during the celebration he hoisted up Deuce! I'm sure we all were celebrating with a loved one as well. For me it was with my old man who has seen his share of Celtics rings. My nephew was with us as well. Last time the C's won he wasn't born. I thought about my mom who died from cancer, during their magical run two years ago that ended in defeat. What truly made me smile was the love in which guys like the Jays, Joe, Jrue and Al all gave to God. It's always been God and family for me. These C's have God and family for sure. 

For me the Celtics have played a huge role in my life. Sharing so many games and moments with loved ones. My father and I met and shook Larry Birds hand after Magics enshrinement. Getting to meet Dave Cowens, KC Jones, and Robert Parish together. Meeting Tommy and Cousy after a game in Springfield Ma. I was lucky enough to get to a game at the old Garden with my dad. When they were giving tours before it closed, they said don't step on the court. Yet my dad and I both stepped where Larry hit that three vs the Rockets in 86. I took my wife to a Cs game the year we met and it was a playoff game during Banner 17. I took all our kids to the Garden! When my grandpa passed years ago my dad had already bought us preseason tickets to a game in Amherst. It happened to be the first time JB put on a Cs uniform and had two monster dunks. It was healing after we buried my grandpa. The first jersey I ever bought myself was a Reggie Lewis one and I still have it. This past year we took a bus trip to the Garden and were able to get some shots up on the parquet. Most of my work attire is Celtics related. I'm very thankful for so many Celtic related memories. 

Thank you to the Celtics for giving us yet another Banner and memory. Now enjoy this guys, but put in the work next season and go Back to Back! 

Celtic Pride! Bleed Green! Banner 18!

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
