Which Boston Celtic is most likely to underachieve?

The Boston Celtics have high expectations this season, but that doesn't mean every player on the team will live up to them on an individual level. Here's a look at a few players who could fall short and disappoint in the 2015-16 season, including James Young, who had a wildly discouraging go at the Salt Lake City and Las Vegas Summer Leagues. Here's the consensus from ESPN's Celtics...

But this week, something new and different was spotted online, a Sporting News feature that lumps Jared...

Jared Sullinger’s Trainer Says Celtics Forward In For ‘A Special Season’

It’s the same old song and dance: “Jared Sullinger is going to have a big year.” The Boston Celtics’ 2012 first-round draft choice hasn’t quite lived up to expectations in his three seasons in Boston. Injuries and a struggle with weight issues have derailed parts of some seasons and made Sullinger relatively ineffective in parts others. And seemingly every fall the same...

Jared Sullinger's trainer, John Lucas, says we should expect a 'special season' from the Celtics big man

OK, I'm guessing most Celtics fans are not particularly interested in reading another post about Jared Sullinger getting in shape.  As Mass Live's Jay King wrote, "With Sullinger, it's probably best to believe it when you see it."  With that in mind, I'll just include this tweet from John Lucas and leave it at that.

Jared Sullinger's trainer thinks he'll have 'a special season'

Next season is a make-or-break year for Jared Sullinger and the Boston Celtics. The power forward will enter restricted free agency next summer, and if he can't keep his weight down there's a good chance the Celtics will cut ties.Their frontcourt is suddenly stacked, and paying Sullinger big money may not be a smart move. On the other hand, if he establishes a reliable three-point...

Should Boston Celtics keep Jared Sullinger or Kelly Olynyk?

Boston Celtics forwards Jared Sullinger and Kelly Olynyk play the same position but are viewed as two of the team's most valuable assets—both are young and skilled. But given how crowded Boston's frontcourt currently is, one of them may be traded or spend the bulk of his 2015-16 season out of Brad Stevens' rotation. Here's a closer look, courtesy of SB Nation's Celticsblog, on...

What will Boston's starting lineup look like in 2016?

The Boston Celtics have the type of roster where the skill on their bench essentially matches whoever's starting. They go at least 10 deep, but that's not necessarily so great without any All-Star talent. Regardless, five guys have to start. Who should they be? The Celtics blog Red's Army recently took a look. Their decision to put Jared Sullinger at power forward makes sense, but...
