Otis Smith on Boston Celtics: ‘They act tough’

After Monday’s game between the two teams, Magic general manager Otis Smith questioned the toughness of the Celtics."They act tough," Smith said. "They’re not really tough. They act tough."

HoopsVibe`s Very Quick Call: It’s time for Otis Smith and Stan Van Gundy to shut up.

All year, the Orlando Magic’s executive and coach have waged a war of words through the media with members of the Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers. Now they’re declaring jihad against the Boston Celtics. 

Smith and Van Gundy have to realize something: they’re providing bulletin board material for the Celtics. Kevin Garnett and his green posse will take exception to these comments and bring it against the Magic.

Gilbert Arenas, Dwight Howard, Jameer Nelson, Jason Richardson, and Hedo Turkoglu will bear the brunt of Garnett’s rage, while Smith sits comfortably in his fifteen hundred dollar suit in the executive suite.

In short, Smith and Van Gundy aren’t playing. Someone else has to take responsibility for their words.

Perhaps they should simply do their jobs and model professionalism for the employees they’re supposed to lead.
