Found July 10, 2012 on Celtics Town:
Editor’s note: This post is from Jordan Higgs. He is likely to be one of Celtics Town’s initial crop of interns, who are plotting to take over the world one blog post at a time. Due to other obligations I still haven’t watched the entire game. But from what I’ve watched (the second half), well, JARED MOTHER-F%$&ING SULLINGER!!!!! If you also want to apply for an intern position, email jayking (at) celticstown (dot) com. Everyone knows that the impressions left from the first Summer League game are season defining, sometimes career defining. Everyone also knows the previous statement is not true; these games are just a great way for players to learn, try new things and make an impression, preferably a good one, on the coaching staff. Without further ado, here are a few thoughts from the Boston Celtics’ first Summer League game, a 73-65 victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder:Jared Sullinger (20 points, six rebounds) undoubtedly was the star of the Prove-Em-Wrong Bowl, out-due...

The Summer League Boston Celtics are undefeated, people!

Jared Sullinger Credits His Brothers for Learning to Concentrate on Shot Instead of 'Scrapes All Over Your Arms'

Jared Sullinger may have battled injuries, but don't expect him to cry about them. The new Celtics forward has a history of getting knocked to the ground, but he's consistently gotten back up.

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 from long-range.  He picked it up a little in the second...

Jared Sullinger has forgotten more about rebounding than Mark Blount ever knew

The Boston Celtics, for years, have rebounded like the ball might give them a disease. But rookie Jared Sullinger has always been a very good rebounder. And he’s reduced it, much like Kevin Love has done, to a sweet science. (Boston Herald)“You have to know your niche,” Sullinger said. “You have to know that if they shoot from the left side, 75 percent of the time it...

Boston Celtics Summer League observations, Day 2: The rise of Jonathan Gibson

Somebody named Jonathan Gibson, who played his college ball at “I need to Google Jonathan Gibson really quickly because I have no idea where” University, scored 15 fourth-quarter points on Tuesday as the Boston Celtics overcame a 17-point deficit to edge the Brooklyn Nets at the Orlando Summer League. Almost as importantly, Adam Morrison still exists, and he now looks like...

Thunder get steal of draft?

I know my beloved Boston Celtics made out very well in the recently completed 2012 NBA Draft by nabbing lottery-caliber forward Jared Sullinger and 7-foot center Fab Meo out of Syracuse, but I believe that it is the Oklahoma City Thunder that may have gotten the steal of the NBA Draft when they nabbed 6-foot-11 forward Perry Jones III out of Baylor with the 28th pick in the draft...

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 Mexico State with little chance of making the Celtics roster, but...
