Free Jared Sullinger and Start Him Now

We need to start Jared Sullinger now! I am sorry but after seeing a little glimpse of him yesterday morning, I realized the best gift the Boston Celtics can give me is to start him. Few reasons why we should start him, 1. He is active! I am not a big plus/minus or per 36 minutes guy, but he is the best on the Celtics with rebounding per 36 minutes. We need rebounding in the worst...

Jared Sullinger a starter soon? It would make sense

Doc Rivers Compliments Jared Sullinger, Calls Him ‘Big Fat Guy Playing Basketball’

Hopefully the Celtics aren’t sensitive about their weight. Because Doc Rivers certainly doesn’t care. The Celtics’ coach complimented rookie forward Jared Sullinger, and then called him fat.

Jared Sullinger has the best NBA All Star Ballot ever

#NBABallot Kevin Garnett Paul Pierce Rajon Rondo Jason Terry and Jeff Green — Jared Sullinger (@Jared_Sully0) December 26, 2012 I'd say most people probably have Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett on their ballots, but I'm not sure the other three have came up in reports of being high in the voting.

Your Morning Dump..Where The Celtics look for some game

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.

For Christmas, at least, the Celtics played well. Jared Sullinger solidified himself as my hero, Rajon Rondo continued to show more aggression as a scorer, Gerald Wallace may or may not have wanted to brawl, Deron Williams (and Joe Johnson) used to be a lot better, and I don’t know if I said this before, but Sullinger’s my hero.I would write more, but I’m going to see Les Miserables...
