Jared Sullinger talks frustrations, keeping his job, and Vanilla Ice

The two-week long initial inspection of Jared Sullinger’s game as a Celtic is over.  We’ve seen him display a nice post game, some good rebounding ability, some nice passing instincts, and a good mid-range game that allows him to take bigs off the dribble. All in all, it was a good couple of weeks for [...]

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 [...]

Scout: Jared Sullinger would start for some teams

Jared Sullinger has been a Celtic for exactly two weeks and he’s played in four summer league games.  It was our first chance to look at Sullinger as a pro and evaluate him against other pro (or borderline pro) talent.  And what we’ve seen is impressive.  He can play with his back to the basket [...]

Trying not to overreact to Kris Joseph’s summer league performance

This is only summer league This is only summer league This is only summer league I’m trying to remind myself of something that I know all too well.  This is only summer league, and every summer league has a “breakout” player that never makes it in the league.  But I can’t help but enjoy what [...]

Jonathan Gibson leads C’s to Summer League win… wait who?

The Celtics were scuffling along in typical summer league fashion.  They were down by 17 to the Brooklyn Nets… … until undrafted rookie Jonathan Gibson took over. Gibson dropped 17 points off the bench and led the Celtics to a 30-14 fourth quarter and 82-73 Celtics win.  Gibson is a 6’1″ guard out of New [...]

Sullinger, Joseph impress in Summer League debut

The Boston Celtics opened their Summer League with a 73-65 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, though the score of these games barely matters. Let’s get right to the early assessments.  First, the returning players: E’Twaun Moore:  His shot was spotty early. He hit a few nice mid-range jumpers, but he had a tough time [...]
