Few things in life are as reliable as Marcus Smart giving full effort every time he suits up. A fan favorite for years, Marcus is a true embodiment of grit and determination.
It’s no surprise that Boston, a city built on the hard work of immigrants and the middle class, loves this type of player so much. Queue up the footage of Larry Bird mowing his own lawn, please.
Last night in the Celtics preseason game vs. Philadelphia, Marcus reminded us of his incredible motor when he dove on the floor after a loose ball.

This is what fans want to see in meaningful regular season and playoff games, but Marcus treats every game exactly the same.
