Ok, I'll bite the bullet and get it started. The first and only time I started a C's game thread, it was after they started 2-2 this season, and they had a 4 game winning streak including back to back wins over Detroit and a win against the Bucks (who just stomped them last night). Then they went to Indiana and began the road trip from hell, which was really the first time the warts of this team showed themselves.

Last night, after the game, there was a long player's only meeting in the locker room, and Kyrie Irving was very vocal about selfish play amongst the team, and a lack of cohesion. Maybe this is the turning point. Maybe it's the beginning of the end, and nothing is going to change until Danny makes some changes. Let's all hope it's the former. Beat this crappy Hornets team.

I'm scared.

Hornets, like many social wasps, can mobilize the entire nest to sting in defense, which is highly dangerous to humans and other animals. The attack pheromone is released in case of threat to the nest. In the case of the Asian giant hornet (Vespa mandarinia) this is also used to mobilize many workers at once when attacking colonies of their prey, honey bees and other Vespa species. Three biologically active chemicals, 2-pentanol, 3-methyl-1-butanol, and 1-methylbutyl 3-methylbutanoate, have been identified for this species. In field tests, 2-pentanol alone triggered mild alarm and defensive behavior, but adding the other two compounds increased aggressiveness in a synergistic effect. In the European hornet (Vespa crabro) the major compound of the alarm pheromone is 2-methyl-3-butene-2-ol.

If a hornet is killed near a nest it may release pheromones that can cause the other hornets to attack. Materials that come in contact with this pheromone, such as clothes, skin, and dead prey or hornets, can also trigger an attack, as can certain food flavorings, such as banana and apple flavorings, and fragrances that contain C5 alcohols and C10 esters.

Tatum refusing to attack Walker is bad. Settling for a fade away that got blocked... Yuck

Weird comp but hear me out. Kemba kind of reminds me of IT. Lots of drives to the rim and a lot of really tough finishes with exceptional body control.

Somewhere on the Sons of Muggsy Bogues, they're complaining about free throw disparity. "Doesn't Kemba take enough shots in the paint?!"

I missed Scal too but totally agree. I want Kemba to go to a contender - he would be perfect on Denver or Milwaukee (though I dont want that). I love watching him when he is going off.

When Jaylen is really active on D, he's really good. It all starts there with him.

How much is Morris going to get this off season and will it be worth the luxury hit for the Celtics to pay it?
