Danny done good. He signed my dude Marcus. Which shows how smart Ainge really is (sorry;). I thought this was a great signing. Because
Smart has so much upside it is incredible. And the area of his upside is the easiest thing to improve in the NBA, with age. Smart is a scrapper, like Danny. Smart is physically stronger than Ainge, but Danny was a much-much better shooter. I think they could be similar level players.
Now the fix seemed to me like it was in a while ago, when there was no news of any other teams interested. "He’s thrilled, really happy, because he loves it here in Boston,"
his agent Walters happily said
(sorry;). "The contract is fair for him and the team." Like I wrote when the Celtics drafted him: Smart does all the little things that lead to wins, and if you don't see that than you don't understand basketball.
But the deal
is done. "This is where I want to be," Smart said. "And I’m ready to put a green jersey back on and get to work. I’m determined to help my teammates bring another championship to the best fans in the world." He will be wearing a lot of green for the next four years.
Danny got the signature on the dotted line. "Keeping Marcus in a Celtics uniform was a top priority, and we’re excited to have accomplished that," Ainge said. "His intensity is unmatched, and the level of toughness that he brings to the team throughout the course of the entire season is second to none." I thought they would offer him a one-year deal, to see what Kyrie does at the end of the season.
But he has so many intangibles that help teams win that they gave him four. "It was a combination of things," Boren said. "He was down and disappointed, because he loves the Celtics. And at the time he was with his mom. It was just an emotional time for him. But you have no idea how big this is for him. He’s gone through a whole lot this summer being a restricted free agent. But he’s a Celtic, and he’s always loved that. It’s a gritty community that reflects the way he plays, and they appreciate the way he plays." I was worried the over-assetted Celtics weren't going to sign their best defensive player.
But the NBA system makes it hard to sign a restricted free agent, and Smart didn't take that personal. Then Danny didn't try and screw him with a one-year deal. Now no one, except the Basketball gods can stop them from reaching the Finals to play the Warriors. "We’ve got a lot of great talent on this team, with a great coach. So you know, we’re thinking we’re trying to raise a banner," Jaylen Brown said. Damn skippy!
A Citizen! Not a Subject!
is as Fascist does. Beware American. President Fredo is pulling the
cowardly republican Senate closer and closer to the cliff.
I. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or
prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech,
or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to
petition the government for a redress of grievances:
1st Amendment to the Constitution is the greatest paragraph ever written
by mankind. It is the truest diagram of how to ensure a free Country of
citizens survives. But is is also a list of what to attack when you want
to be a fascist dictator. President Jerkballs is attacking every article
in the 1st Amendment. Beware subjects, or you will be subjugated:
it all makes sense now. Nothing President Treason did ever made sense to
anyone who loves this Country, and the working men and woman who live and
die to make this Country great. Now it all makes sense.If
you are still capable of being honest with yourself,
