We all get a little bit of the Summer Fever around this time of year.  We fall in love with players who never make it.  We fantasize about genius GM’s finding no-name diamonds in the rough that will make an impact for a winning team.  Hell, I did three separate pieces on Dionte Christmas in [...]

“Honestly, I don’t have any back problems, but it is what it is,” Sullinger said. “I’m just playing basketball now. I finally have a job, and now it’s time to take the next step and get ready to play. Originally projected as a top 10 pick in this year’s draft before being red-flagged, Sullinger described [...]

With addition of Melo and Sullinger, Garnett’s return essential

With addition of Melo and Sullinger, Garnett’s return essential

With the 21st and 22nd picks in the 2012 NBA draft last night, the Celtics filled two gaping holes in their roster with the addition of Ohio State’s Jared Sullinger and Fab Melo from Syracuse University. As is the case with many of the picks from this years draft, both have more than their fair share [...]

Video: Sullinger & family’s reaction to being drafted

This is pretty cool.  I love seeing these because we always tend to forget how exciting these moments are for these kids.  Remember, they’re young… some are still teenagers, some are in their early 20’s… and as much as they’re big-time college players, there’s a dream being realized here.  No matter how big a player [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics draft a bad back and maturity issues

Your Morning Dump… Where the Celtics draft a bad back and maturity issues

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. Sullinger, a talented 6-foot-9 post player and rebounder, got by without a lot of lift in his game, and some question about his ability to score over [...]

With the 22nd pick in the NBA draft…

With the 22nd pick in the NBA draft…

The Celtics select center Fab Melo of Syracuse Melo’s stock dropped, but he’s a legitimate 7 footer and a defensive specialist.  He’s a big, physical guy who lacks an offensive game. Is this pick reminding anyone of Kendrick Perkins? [...]

With the 21st pick in the NBA draft…

The Boston Celtics select… Jared Sullinger Sullinger is the first of two medically red flagged guys due to issues with his back.  But the Celtics weren’t scared off by the Ohio State power forward. He’s a big boy.  He’s a top 10 talent.  If this back issue is no big deal, this is a steal [...]

Woj:  Ainge getting aggressive, wants to move up in draft

  Shocker of shockers, Danny Ainge is being aggressive. Here are the assets the Celtics have, in order (my opinion) of value Rajon Rondo Draft picks (a combination of 21 & 22, plus future #1’s) Avery Bradley Paul Pierce JaJuan Johnson/E’Twaun Moore Yes, I ranked Pierce 4th because of his age and contract, I’m sure other teams would [...]

Ainge:  10 plans, 0 promises

The draft is a little more than 24 hours away, and the burning question remains… did Danny Ainge make a promise to Royce White? His answer today:  No. “As a general rule I do not make promises,” Ainge said. “I have before, it’s been a while, and we did not make a promise, no. On [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where anything can happen on draft day

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. The 6-foot-4 [Terrence] Ross has operated in a vacuum for most of the season. But Ainge had heard enough to request that workout, and it’s easy to [...]
