As all Boston fans and Smart haters know, Marcus Smart was ejected Saturday during the Celtics win over the Hawks. Why, you may be asking? Of course, if you haven’t seen the 10 years of coverage Sportscenter has dedicated to this (and Lonzo Ball’s injury), it is because he tried to fight Deandre’ Bembry. Not only that, but he was ejected AND THEN he tried to fight Bembry.
Quite simply, the man is the goat. He is the enforcer for this
Celtics team, and he relishes it. He WANTS to get punched in the face. Gotta love a man that will go toe-to-toe with Draymond Green and win. Best part about all of this? Besides the suspension, he will have to pay a $35k fine.
…lol that means NOTHING to him. Man signed a 4 year/~$52 mil extension that kicks in this year, so he is swimming in money. I hope he is laughing as he is paying said fine, since we need a new villain. I am not saying Smart is like a Hannibal Lecter villain, but more like Tom Hardy’s Bane.
I mean, could you imagine him wearing a Bane mask quoting him? See him check into a game, take a charge, and start saying while he gets up, “The fire rises.” If this means that Embiid has to put his mask on, and they get to duke it out in a game, then I am all for it.
