Boston Celtics Connelly Top Ten – Celtics Bitc* Slapped Share Tweet Published 8 months ago on May 18, 2017 By Michael Connelly Connelly Top Ten – Celtics Bitc* Slapped 1. This is the Playoffs Right? * If I was Brad Stevens I would show Kevin McHale taking down Rambis video in a non-ending loop in the locker room * At one point Lebron turned his back on the whole defense dribbled around like he was at shoot around and then ran to the hoop and laid it in – no one did anything * He embarrassed your best player Thomas – wagging his finger at him and no one did anything * Lebron getting to the hoop for layups was really embarrassing – he has to be knocked down 20 times * Twice players fouled him and patted him on the backside – Smart and Green * This has to be war – set a tone * Team taking on their coach’s persona – soft * The walked out on the floor glad to be there 2. This is why you can’t give Isaiah $30,000,000 a year: * He couldn’t get his shot off * He not only gets posted up but gets beat off the dribble too which is all about effort (Watch Spud Webb and Mugsy Bogues on small guys playing effective defense) * First offensive possession he got trapped in the corner and turned the ball over to start the game * Defensively – his man took him to the basked twice in a row to start the game 3. Danny Ainge * He had three years to do something about Tristan Thompson – failure * You need to change the roster in the offseason – get rid of Zeller, Jerebko, Kelly (trade him), Young, and you need a big tough bastard 4. Brad Stevens * After playing against Cleveland 12 times – that’s your defensive scheme – call Rex Ryan and get some creativity * Really Brad you went to Zeller early in the game – did something change from last time TristanThompson ragdolled him 5. Other Celtics * Horford threw up on Dean Wormer again – he was so scared that he was dribbling to the basket for an open layups and passing it off to he corners * Jaylen Brown showed something but I’m not sure if has the highest basketball IQ – I know he got into U California but at one point he left a man in the paint with the ball to cover a guy in the corner – ugh dunk * I give Bradley credit trying to dunk on Lebron – Horford was too busy fixing his Depends * James Young looks like the most dis-interested player in sports * Kelly’s run is over – Kelly Green was mold – should never played him after Game 7 and maintained his trade value 6. Defense * You have to – HAVE TO! MAKE THIS A STREET FIGHT * You gotta give Lebron the threes – take away the corners and compress the middle * Please don’t run at Kevin Love when he is shooting a three – he’ll lean into you and take the free throws * Mix in some zone – two men on Lebron and play a triangle behind him – do something! * Has Kevin Love and Lebron ever been punched in the face and responded – you better find out 7. LeBron * The most contrived superstar in sports history – ooh my ankle * He whines on every call – get in his face when he’s talking to the ref * We need Don Corleone to slap every Celtic (Johnny Fontane) who let him get to hoop and yell “be a man” * Fuc*ing compete for crying out loud (Watch a Piston’s Bad Boys game or something) 8 .TNT * No Barkley stinks * Reggie Miller is already talking about the finals against Golden State (he isn’t wrong) and what a great experience for the Celtics – his producers must have been screaming in his ear * David Aldridge the sideline reporter might be the worst in sports – its like he’s coming off some sleeping pill overdose * Chris Webber and Reggie Miller sound too much alike 9. Stats * Three pointers ruining the sport 69 of 169 shots three pointers 10. Random Celtics Stuff * Can Amir Johnson dunk? * Tyron Lue stole Mr. Kraft’s high chair * Green Teamers (code for pink hats) standing ovation for the home team as they are down only 20 Related Topics:Boston Celticsfeatured Up Next Boston Celtics Star Guard Isaiah Thomas Selected To All NBA Second Team Don't Miss Boston Celtics Blown Out In Game 1 Against LeBron Michael Connelly Michael has written for the Boston Herald and other sites in the past and his top ten column is now housed on Trifecta Sports Network.

On Thursday the NBA announced that Irving would be a starting guard on the Eastern Conference All-Star team. Irving is averaging 24.1 points and five assists per game for the C’s this season and is happy to be representing the Celtics out in Los Angeles. “I am truly appreciative of the fans of the NBA and the Boston Celtics for voting me in to this year’s All-Star Game as a starter,” said Irving. “I am super proud that I can represent the Celtics in LA and looking forward to putting on a show.” Irving with joins ex-teammate LeBron James, 76er Joel Embiid, Toronto’s Demar DeRozan, and the Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo as starters. This is the fifth All-Star selection of Irving’s NBA career. The reserves have yet to be named by the NBA with Al Horford and Jayson Tatum being other Boston players who could be in the running to make the Eastern Conference squad.

The recent Patriots victory over the Steelers has been tarnished by subsequent internal-fighting. And over the past couple of weeks, the Boston Celtics have been defeated by some of the most middling of NBA teams. The only auspicious emblem to be found would be the Bruins, who have won 3 games in a row. If the season ended today, the B’s would make the playoffs! But don’t worry, they’ll find a way to self-destruct before the season actually ends. So when you’re neck-deep in it, like we presently find ourselves, what do you do? You shovel yourself out. Let this article be your utensil of liberation! It’s time for another installment of The Good, the Bad and the Ugly: Neck Deep Edition. Continue Reading Boston Celtics The Celtics Have a Bench Problem Published 1 month ago on December 17, 2017 By Jackson Kelley With the Celtics suffering a nonplussing loss at the hands of the Utah Jazz, it’s become apparent: This bench is gonna need some help. And they’re going to have to find this help from within themselves. Ever since he was acquired from the Pistons, Marcus Morris was expected to be the most talented asset on the Celtics bench. Morris has the skills to be a secondary powerhouse in the NBA. Just last season, for Detroit, Morris averaged 14.0 PPG and just about 5 RPG. But unfortunately his young tenure in Boston has deteriorated into “what ifs”. Marcus has been afflicted with a lancinating and unrelenting pain in his left knee. Not only did he miss the start of the season, but he’s been sidelined yet again by this tenacious problem. Without Morris on the court, Boston’s bench lacks that veteran’s heart and wisdom that he provides. They also are mathematically short in the scoring department, without the versatile big man. As we saw Friday night at the Garden, somebody is going to need to step up – and fast.
