With the news that Sullinger is now pain free and cleared to practice now is probably a good time to get reacclimatized to what the power forward can bring to the Celtics. Fortunately we have a solid mix by TheCelticD (The creator of the Celtics New Core Four mix featured on Celtics Life recently) to illustrate his game for you. I don't know about you, but it feels like it's been forever since I've seen Sullinger on the court, so he's almost become the forgotten man. But he was having a very solid rookie campaign before his injury and with the back issues now taken care of it's not far fetched to believe that he could breakout in his 2nd season.
Predict in the comments section how many points and rebounds Sullinger will average per game this season.

BEST OF MAXIM
This off-season for the Celtics has been very interesting to say the least. Since early June, things have quieted down significantly, and this seems to be the team that the C’s are going to take into this season. With the roster being so bare this upcoming season, the Celtics have hardly any nationally televised games, and most fans will have to buy NBA league pass to watch their...
Robert Parrish was arguably the best center to ever slap on a Boston Celtics uniform.
Like many retired players, when things got squirrely with his former team, Parrish spoke up about the transitions that the Celtics are going through.
Parrish said that he is aware of the perception issue that exists about point guard Rajon Rondo.

The Boston Celtics cleared forward Jared Sullinger for full basketball-related activities last week, and the second-year pro told reporters – including Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe – that he expects to be ready by the start of training camp.Jared Sullinger said he was cleared for full basketball activity last week and should be ready by start of training camp #celtics—...
It's put up or shut up time for Jeff Green.
During Green's five-year career, he's always been seen as a player with superstar talent who has never quite lived up to his potential. Some of that criticism may be warranted as Green has yet to really breakout, but he's never been in the right situation to showcase his talents. In Oklahoma City, he was battling for touches...
Can they make it work?
With the release of the NBA schedule a few hours ago, the reality of what may very well be a difficult season hits home. While most of the people reading this(hopefully) are die hard Celtics fans through thick and thin, the truth is many fans will not follow the Celtics as closely this year because they probably won't be contenders. This makes me sad...
So I just stumbled across this and figured, hey, nothing else is going on, why not share it with the world?
Or at least the slice of the world that reads our site. This was the intro video I created for our CelticsLife Live show awhile back. Of course, I was thinking that we could play it before the show started on the broadcast, no such luck!
Maybe one day.
Anyway, here it is...
Of the 15 man playoff roster taken into the 2008 Finals by
the Boston Celtics only Rajon Rondo and Tony Allen were above average NBA athletes. Now “average” NBA athlete is a pretty awesome
superlative; but think about it, this Championship team ran slower and jumped
lower than most of the teams they decimated in April, May, and June. So just how did they beat the snot out...
Adam Figman of SLAM Online interviewed Paul Pierce who spoke a lot about his transition to a new team and city, and a little bit about the Celtics:
SLAM: I imagine the return to Boston will be pretty emotional.
PP: Oh it’s definitely gonna be emotional. You spend almost half of your life in Boston, so a lot of emotions are gonna run deep, because of friends and the things you...
Boston Celtics: What They Should Have Received In Trade From Nets
By Jordan Van Beek: Hoopstuff Writer…
The blockbuster trade on draft day between the Celtics and Nets wasn’t really fair for the Celtics. They got rid of Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Jason Terry and D.J. White and got the expiring contract of Kris Humphries, Gerald Wallace and his big contract, Keith Bogans, MarShon...
Paul Pierce suggested yesterday that he won't be making the trip to Boston for the Nets-Celtics preseason game on October 23rd, and will instead wait for the regular season to make an emotional return to the TD Garden.
From ESPN Boston:
Former Boston Celtics captain Paul Pierce hinted Thursday that he will attempt to avoid an exhibition matchup at TD Garden when the Brooklyn...
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.
So how’d that Hornets jersey feel? “Un-com-fortable,” Parish said. “In my mind, I would always be a Celtic. I was very thankful and humbled that the Hornets saw fit to allow me to play a couple more years...
Yesterday I talked about the difference between the burn to
be great and the smolder to be mediocre. That seems a perfect lead in to discuss some
young Celtics with a real opportunity to dramatically improve. It doesn’t mean that they will, but early
signs are encouraging. Every great
player has come back the next fall with something new—physique, inside moves,
Imagine if Larry Bird (33) and Kevin McHale (32) did not conclude their Hall of Fame careers with the Boston Celtics.
The Boston Celtics made an unprecedented move in the history of their franchise this summer – they traded active legendary players. When President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge pulled the trigger on a deal to send Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Jason Terry...
Paul Pierce doesn’t hold a grudge against Danny Ainge or the Boston Celtics ownership group in the wake of the trade that sent him to Brooklyn.
"I understand they're a business. At the end of the day it's not about Paul Pierce. The Boston Celtics have a business to run, and [they're] going to be around a lot longer than I'm going to be able to play," Pierce...
The stories are legendary of players with such an inner
drive that they elevated themselves from good to great. Bird and Russell,
Olajuwon, Garnett—all these players improved by leaps and bounds after entering
the pros, and were known for their dedication to offseason training. All had physical gifts, but so do hundreds of
others that were (or should have been...
