Michael and Dale discuss the re-emergence of the Celtics in the public's eye, especially since the trade to bring in Isaiah Thomas. The grit of this young team just might be contagious.

[0:00:16] ... it. Well this is fond of historical. Yeah. Yeah bill I like Isiah Thomas better than Rajon Rondo. That is an enterprise product but I but I understand under here which is saying. It it was a great trade for ...
[0:00:57] ... Nam. He just got that he comes into the game so happy Rajon Rondo is is that you know that guy who brings up body your seat in he'll throw that 84 foot bounce pass or some that are jobless as at all bathrooms and and I think Isiah Thomas actually brings. A little more to the table. But our best but that history we shoot better than the rich on Ron there are no puts them. And it dark convince me why I should like Rajon Rondo more than Isiah Thomas body of work. And and that's the the big thing here why I think this is knee jerk I seem Rajon Rondo play for how many years here. I've seen Isiah Thomas played what three games here so far. Interesting little side bit stat. First three games of the Celtics career. The only guy who scored more points in his first three games in the Celtics uniform with Bob Mac it. He's court's 64 points in his first three games Isiah Thomas is now scored 61 in his first three. Another way of him as both governors are definitely a a couple of gutters ...
[0:02:31] ... and Antoine combined. So. I'm sure you're out of it promised that Rajon Rondo when when he's on his game and he's like an IMF and. Goats out but no he's that's the thing that there's there's baggage that comes with Rajon Rondo as well there are times when he looked like cubicle with a motions. You know when the bright lights court on in the national TV cameras weren't there there were some nights that he took off a little bit. There's you know of that. The diva stuff that drove doc crazy here probably RD drive and Rick Carlisle crazy there. Mean I don't know Isaiah Thomas well enough I don't know. You know what kind of guy he is I want pretend that I you know a comic Irish on Rondo is but in terms of how proud you are a little easier what you see ya on the court. Isaiah Thomas seems like a better teammate than Rajon Rondo. We have there's a lot to like Arnold he's a better point guard go or he's a better point carper for Rondo is game. When he's on a maybe that Rondo is is gone will will see. The injury may have taken a lot out of them but Rondo that game is setting people up regulating. The pace. You talk about pace of game of baseball out where Rajon Rondo is your is your pace of game commissioner. That's his strength it's unbelievable how when he's going. Everybody's better everybody gets the shot they want to get the ball where they want it well separate Allen. You know with it along but we always up for the most part can just set people up and wanna do. And that in and Isiah Thomas is more of a of a scoring point guard. More than any. Distributed so you had a tribute to can but. He ...
[0:04:45] ... little doesn't mean you're a pure point guard anyway another Washington got Nate Robinson. They were as they Robinson a pure point guard now is that a little guy a good score Isiah Thomas is a really really exciting. Good 59 basketball player who often has the ball when he has the ball he's probably gonna ...

This is video the Aaron Hernandez jury saw taken on the night Odin Lloyd would later be murdered. And it’s just chilling. I don’t know how you’re supposed to act before you ki– pardon me, allegedly kill … which is to say put a friend of yours in your rental car only to have him be found dead in a vacant lot near your house with five shell casings at the scene that perfectly match a sixth shell casing in said car, but I imagine this isn’t it. You’d think the decision to end a life — allegedly — would have you in a mood to do something other than get jiggy with it in a gas station parking lot.

On the other hand in 2012 Daniel Jorge Correia de Abreu and Safiro Teixeira Furtado were shot dead by someone who may or may not have then gone out and played an NFL season where he could have had 51 catches for 482 allegedly yards and five possible touchdowns, so who knows? Some people are better at compartmentalizing than others.

I know I’m not good at it. Because this image is going to haunt my dreams for a long time to come.
