    Is Sullinger the next Big Baby?

    Both are under sized 4's. Both have the same body types. Both are inconsistent. Both are not the greatest defensively. Both at times seem somewhat disinterested. Both seem to have a hard time controlling their tempers on and off the court. Both are injury prone.  Both talk like they want to be leaders but something always seems to get in the way. Is Sully a building block for the C's?..... Davis wasn't.

    I think Sullinger is already better than Big Baby

    Sick of the "undersized" label too......

     

    Sully is definitely a building block

    Got it. I do believe that Sully is/will be a double double guy more consistently but I've seen him disappear too much lately.

    With soooo much talk of Kevin Love on this board I guess I just wish that Sully would be solid 18/10 guy almost every night this year and show constant improvement. I know he's already better than Big Baby.

    I love Sully.  He knows his role, and works to improve his game.  Davis just talked a good game, and took shots out of his range.  Drove me crazy.  He's in my  Big 3 - Glen Davis, Kevin Gamble and Mike Greenwell.

    Glen Davis is a good player, he was a big part of our banner 17.  Thanks Glen.   Fav given a rotation he can depend on, has good upside.   Wallace, Bass, and Hump are taking the minutes we need to develop players and we are still not winning.  Why play em.

    The entire team and everyone on it disappears all too often.

    We are in a total rebuild mode with everything in flux as Stevens experiments with different lineups and combinations.

    Nothing is settled nor can it be.

    The only constant is losing... and lots of it.

    Sully is the only real stud that the Cs have and his level of effort day in and day out is very strong IMHO.

    That's as good as we can get from him.

    I think Sullinger can be an All Star PF I think one that will average 18 PPG and 10 Rebounds per game. He's still only 21.

    Re: Is Sullinger the next Big Baby?

    He's been injured for the last month with the bad hand, so I think that is affecting his play.  The Celtics also do not use him properly.  I think he should be the focal point of the offense.  I agree with Tommy Heinsohn when he pleads for the team to continually get him the ball in the post on offense.  For some reason, they don't, though.

    Sulliy has a low post game. Davis doesn't.. sully is a good rebounder. Davis isn't.

    I actually agree about Sully.  He's a nice player....but I highly doubt he will ever be more than a 13pt 9 rebound player.  He's a big fish in a small pond right now and he's very inconsistent now.  I don't consider him a building block.
    I do think that he is a good complimentary player but certainly not a top 4 option for a competing team.  Just one of those guys that does the dirty work.....which is important but not a building block.

    Re: Is Sullinger the next Big Baby?

    Sully is a good player my issue right now is he seems injury prone. The last week or to his hand is really hurting his game, he seems to be holding his right hand and wincing almost every game. He's not really undersized his width counters his length and his fundamentals make up for his lack of vertical ability. Sully can definately be a contributor on a good team.

    Re: Is Sullinger the next Big Baby?

    Sullinger is a guy you want on your team when he's part of a core of players.  If anyone thinks Sullinger is a part of the C's future as a rebounder/physical presence/decent scorer, then I agree with you.  I used to think Sullinger's upside is Zach Randolph, a double double guy.  He may get there yet, but to me he's like Jeff Green -- a nice piece and a complementary player, but needs to be surrounded with good players to be most effective.

    I don't think Sully will be much more than average. But Davis isn't even that.

    Easy.......Sully doens't take any fall-away jumpers with no chance of them going in.  He takes deliberate, set shots, which he has worked on in the off-season.

    Davis took that fadeaway jumper from the corner that NEVER went it.  He did hit a bigshot  in the ORL series, sure, but he should have stayed underneath.

    In addition, he talked too much about how good he was..........just my personal opinion....that okay with you?

    Exactly. His size is only an issue when they have him defending taller centers... in which cases he still grabs the rebound if they miss. He doesn't have the numbers we want yet because he doesn't play enough minutes. Who cares about exact height when the numbers are there. Oh and by the way, could a severly injured left hand and a dislocated finger on the the other affect his shooting just a bit ?!?! When we get a good center, we will out rebound the other teams by 10 or more every night. Go Celtics!!

    Gosh. who would want a 13/9 to 14/10 player who does the dirty work and can be the 3rd scoring option on a championship team? We might as well amnesty him now.

    Which puts him a good step above Cedric Maxwell. I definitely could see Sullinger being part of a championship team. Depends on who you've got around him. Odds don't favor his being a first or second option, though, on a banner squad.
