The #BOSnow just keeps piling up! #WinterStormMarcus is almost as fierce as our rook, @smart_MS3
HAHAHHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA! GOOD ONE, CELTICS TWITTER ACCOUNT!
Here's the thing though, gang. Marcus Smart is an awesome rookie who I very much enjoy watching play the game of basketball. Storm Marcus is the latest winter storm that has crippled the city of Boston, and it's on the verge of turning me into Jack from 'The Shining'; I have watched more 'The Chew' than I care to admit, and I haven't had a good cup of coffee in days.

Vintage WTHHT: What the Hell Happened to... Ed Pinckney
authored by tb727
He was a 6'9 power forward who was idolized for orchestrating one of the biggest upsets in college basketball history, when his Villanova Wildcats knocked off the heavily favored Georgetown Hoyas in the 1985 NCAA Championship game (the night Villanova shot an absurd 79% from the field for the game). I'm sure you remember Ed Pinckney.
Ed was drafted with the 10th pick in the 1985 draft by the Suns. After 2 years with Phoenix, he was shipped to the Kings for Eddie Johnson (a trade that really helped out those Suns teams with KJ, Chambers, Hornacek and Majerle). After 1.5 seasons in Sacramento, he made his way to the C's.
