When asked whether he likes Sullinger with the starters, Rivers said, "I do. I don't know if that's the way I'm going to go, but I do like that.
Rivers added, "and I like Brandon with the second unit because he gives us another scorer, a guy who can play."
The evolution of Sullinger from the disappointment of draft night into a potential starter for a title contender as a rookie, speaks volumes about how he has taken all the criticism and questions about his health and responded with the only thing he can to silence them - play great basketball.
"He still has a lot of work, but he does a lot of good things," Rivers said. "He has a veteran mind; does not play like a young guy, except he makes rookie fouls, he does things. But he's just a good spirit. It's good to have him in the locker room."
Some people might not like it, but I think its a near lock that Sullinger starts for the Celtics in his rookie year.
Honestly, I'm all in favor of this happening. Brandon Bass came in ...
