Ndamukong Suh's a mama's boy

By Jon Fucile

Ndamukong Suh has been getting a lot of heat this preseason. He has dished out a couple of questionable hits to quarterbacks and decided it was a good idea to throw a punch at Logan Mankins while Mankins was engaged with another Lions player and didnt see Suh coming.

Yet somehow the man still claims hes not dirty at all ever. How could his make this claim you ask? Because his mommy says so.

"I'll consider myself a dirty player when my mom calls me a dirty player," Suh said Monday, according to The Associated Press.

We wonder if his mommy approves of him throwing blind side punches at another player then running away. He claims he was just defending a teammate but his teammate seemed perfectly capable of defending himself. Jumping into a confrontation from the blindside is pretty dirty, you fool.

When asked why he did it Suh simply responded that his mommy told him to and he has to do everything his mommy says.

Mothers are often more blind than Stevie Wonder. No matter how ugly their kid is they swear it is the most beautiful thing theyve ever seen. No matter how many times their kid gets their head stuck in the railing on the stairs they will swear their kid is not an idiot.

Your mommy isnt going to call you dirty, Suh, because shes probably like most moms and is blind to your various imperfections. Plus, you know, you are probably pampering her with your millions and she doesnt want to offend the cash cow.

Actually, Suh probably still breast feeds when he goes to visit his precious mommy.

Whats next Suh, are you going to go to a local school yard and bully small children to make yourself feel like a man?

Maybe you could push an old guy off his bike and then use your fatness to crush him while hes down, seeing as how that seems to be your calling card.

Suh probably ate neighborhood pets as a child while his mommy made excuses that he was simply playing and was misunderstood.

But, hey, you keep being excited and bragging about your meaningless preseason win and being a dirty little idiot while you and the rest of the Detroit Lions continue to hang out in the NFLs basement. Your mommy can hold you and tell you everything is going to be alright while she tucks you in and reads you a bed time story.

Blakely: This could be the start of something big for Celtics

Blakely: This could be the start of something big for Celtics

BOSTON -- Prior to this year, the Celtics hadn't been to the Eastern Conference finals since 2012. That trip served as a curtain call of sorts for the last great C's dynasty.
But this one, which ended with Cleveland's emphatic 135-102 Game 5 victory Thursday at TD Garden, is very different.
Rather than closing another chapter in the Celtics' longstanding legacy of greatness, it could serve as the beginning of a new narrative in the franchise's steady growth.
"For us to be in the Eastern Conference finals after the first year of this team really being together, adding additions like Al Horford and Gerald Green . . . I can go down the list of guys that we needed to learn to play with, and for us to talk about where we wanted to be and actually make it, it's a big-time accomplishment," said Avery Bradley.
Boston has been among the younger teams in the NBA, with the 31-year-old Green being the oldest player on the roster.
But what the Celtics lacked in experience, they made up for with great effort.
"The great thing about this is the experience," Bradley said. "We were able to go to the Eastern Conference finals, learned a lot about being in this position, and I feel like it's going to help us for next year."
But as we all know, the Celtics will look to strengthen themsevles this offseason, which means there's a very good chance they'll have a different look when they gather again in the fall.
How different is anyone's guess.
"It's difficult every year whenever you don't have guys back," said coach Brad Stevens. "I think you share a bond (over the course of a season)."
Stevens and this group have been together for eight months. Eight months of struggles, successes, frustrating defeats and euphoric victories that brought them to the conference finals, which is where their season came to an end.
But as disappointed as the players and coaches are inow, there's definite excitement about this franchise in the very near future.
Boston has the No. 1 overall pick in next month's draft, with all indications -- for now -- pointing to Washington's Markelle Fultz as their choice.
And their top first-round pick from a year ago, Jaylen Brown, seemed to steadily improve as the season progressed. It was one of the few times in his life where minutes weren't just handed to him, which he admits was a learning experience unlike anything he had ever had, yet he adjusted and played better as the year went along.

"I've had ups, I've had downs, I've had opportunities, I've had mistakes," said Brown. "So I've been learning and growing and improving all year and I'm going to continue growing and improving and prove people wrong, prove doubters wrong."
Having the season end the way it did has indeed left a bad taste in the mouths of many Celtics.
"I can use it as fuel," Brown said, adding: "I want to get back to the same place I'm at now."
Bradley, who was on the 2012 team that lost to the Miami Heat in the conference finals, knows the Celtics are going to do whatever they feel is necessary to give them the best chance at competing for a title.
"It's out of our control as players," Bradley said. "We had a great year together. If guys are here, if guys aren't, we all wish the best for each other.

"But I do feel this is a special group. We all gave our heart every single night, played as hard as we could. I respect all my teammates, and I really appreciated playing with all the guys I had a chance to play with this year; a special group."
