Rashard Mendenhall's conspiracy theories


Rashard Mendenhall's conspiracy theories

By Justin Aucoin

When Rashard Medenhall isnt fumbling footballs or dishing out err. love advice to the ladies of the world, hes on twitter just like you and me. But unlike you and me hes preaching some crackpot conspiracy theories.

And then wait for it


Not to turn WickedGoodSports into a political forum, but theres so much wrong in that one tweet.

Apparently Rashard doesnt read or watch the news well at all. Otherwise he wouldve known that bin Laden and Al Qaeda proudly took full responsibility the attack on the World Trade Center. He wouldve also heard and seen the man speak. Also, not sure what part of a plane exploding into a building defies the logic and the laws of physics that hes created in his brain.

To celebrate or not to celebrate has been the center of debate over the past two days, but everything else? Cmon, Rashard. Youre not really that nave are you?

I'm not convinced he was even behind the attacks we have really seen no evidence to prove it other than the gov telling us Rashard, deleted tweet (The Pitt Stop)

Oh boy.

To be fair to Rashard, he deleted that second and third tweet. Maybe someone finally showed him the horrific video that everyone else has seen and explained to him what was so wrong about everything he tweeted. Or maybe the Steelers chided him like a kid. Either way, we hope someone gave him a good kick in the pants, while they were at it.

But since Rashard is so into conspiracy theories, we decided to come up with a few others he might enjoy.
The moon really is made of cheese

Dont listen to what NASA or those pesky scientists say. Rashard thinks, therefore he knows the truth.

Hitler wasnt a monster; he was just understood

Like bin Laden, Hitler just needed a hug, but the world decided to hate him for his crappy little moustache. But unlike with bin Laden, Mendenhall has seen at least one Hitler video and cant see how everyone hated him so much.

The government is controlling your brain

Best to get that tinfoil hat ready to fend off the waves penetrating your brain

The NBA is rigged

Ummm moving on.

The New England Patriots spied


OK, those last two arent the best examples.

Anyways, its fun seeing what goes on in athletes minds. We just wish they actually thought things through more before posting it on the web for all to see.

As ol Abe Lincoln said: It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open one's mouth and remove all doubt.

Game notes: Celtics look to extend Kings’ Boston losing streak to nine

Game notes: Celtics look to extend Kings’ Boston losing streak to nine

BOSTON – Here are a few odds and ends to keep an eye on heading into tonight’s game against the Sacramento Kings: 
· The Celtics have won eight in a row over the Kings in Boston, with the last loss to Sacramento at the TD Garden coming on Jan. 19, 2007. Current Celtic Gerald Green was in the starting lineup that night. 

· Only six times in franchise history have the Celtics launched 38 or more 3-pointers in a game, four of which came in the month of November this season. 

· Speaking of 3-pointers, 36.2 percent of Boston’s shots are 3s. That ranks fifth in the league behind Houston, Cleveland, Brooklyn and Golden State.

· Don’t be surprised if Avery Bradley gets off to a good start tonight, especially from 3-point range. He’s shooting 59.1 percent on 3s in the first quarter which ranks second in the league. 

· Isaiah Thomas tallied 395 points scored in November, the most by a Celtic since John Havlicek had 406 points in November during the 1971-1972 season. 

· Boston leads the NBA in points scored (46.3 per game) by second-round picks. The Celtics’ second-round picks include Isaiah Thomas; Jae Crowder; Amir Johnson; Jonas Jerebko; Demetrius Jackson and Jordan Mickey.

· The Celtics are 5-0 this season when they outrebound an opponent. 

· Tonight’s game will be Boston’s fifth set of back-to-back games this season. In the first game, they are 3-1 this season. On the second night, they are 2-2.

Beyond the numbers: Kings offense will test Celtics defense

Beyond the numbers: Kings offense will test Celtics defense

BOSTON – When it comes to defense, the Celtics are quick to claim that it is indeed the foundation for which their team is built upon. 
Still, far too often this season, we have seen cracks in their usually Teflon-tough defense, the kind that ultimately means the difference between winning and losing.
The Celtics’ defense will once again need to step up and play well tonight against a Sacramento squad that has shown it can fill it up offensively of late. 
Sacramento (7-11) has scored 100 or more points in eight of their past 10 games. In that span, their 107.2 points per game ranks ninth in the league. 
In that same span, the Celtics have allowed opponents to score 100.3 points per game, which ranks 10th in the NBA in fewest points allowed.
And when it comes to winning, limiting teams to less than 100 points has been huge in Boston’s win total. 
The Celtics have held eight opponents to 100 points or less this season. 
Their record in those games? 8-0.
Within that limited scoring, Boston must also make sure teams don’t get into a nice groove shooting the ball. 
Boston is 0-5 this season when an opponent shoots 48 percent or better from the field. 
While there are several things Boston must do to be successful, having the right kind of defensive disposition ranks at or near the top of that list in their efforts to play with the kind of defensive success that gave so many hope that this would the year Boston would hold court among the top teams in the Eastern Conference.

“We have to get a little more nastier on the defensive end and not let a team come in and get comfortable,” said Boston’s Jae Crowder.
