Doc loves him some sully, rondo too. Sully must be making one heck of an impression if doc is considering starting him. Just the fact that hes contemplating it is crazy especially for doc, who we all know hates giving minutes to rookies. ( also see his comments about wizards.
Doc,rondo and kg, have all RAVED about sully bball iq. That is really saying something coming from those 3 guys. I like that comment by rondo how sully doesnt even need plays run for him he just gets points from cleaning up. The starting unit really needs that type of player. A guy who can get you 2-3 offensive rebounds per game that turn into 2-4 free points that we woulda never got.
Sullinger is a difference maker and can play the game. He has a low post game that rivals Zach Randolph and has a nose for the ball. I can envision banner #18 hanging in the rafters after this season!
CELTICS RULE THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Too early to say he's a difference maker, but I remember two things from the draft:
1. BOTH Danny and Mitch tried to move up into the lottery to take MKG.
2. After the draft, Kupchak stated in no uncertain terms that he was trying to get into the draft later to take Sullinger.
I think it speaks volumes that Danny and Mitch both wanted the same players. If Kupchak, the best GM in the league, like Sullinger that much, he MUST be the real deal!!
Great points, Hedley! As a fellow alum of The Ohio State University, I would have to admit to being biased, but I've seen the kid play many times and like his game. He has a game built for the NBA and with the extremely talented personnel surrounding him, he is no longer the center of attention and subject to all the double teaming that went on at the lower levels. Health permitting, watch Sullinger blossom into an impact player playing with "the best point guard in the Association, bar none" and other talented teammates.
CELTICS RULE THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
