Title: My Personal Apology to Sully
Post by: Bosstown on January 11, 2013, 09:20:26 PM
Jared, I'm sorry i've been doubting you. You got heart kid, You need to lose weight, but I think you have the potential to be a solid solid starter in the next 2 years. Danny, trade Bass + Melo for Gortat and be done. I'm officially on the "keep sully" bandwagon.

My bad round guy.

Watching Sully in college I never thought his game would work in the NBA but I thought it brilliant to take a shot at him where Danny was drafting.

I was wrong, his game does transfer to the NBA. Danny was right and the brilliant gamble paid off. probably big time. My brother in law who hated Sully is eating crow and telling me constantly I was right about taking the chance with him.

Boy I love that.

Taking Sully at 21 was so worth the risk. Lets hope those red flags don't pop up.

That might be a stretch imo. I can't imagine Melo ever avg 15 and 10. I'm hoping he turns into a Perkins type(8 ppg 8 rpg tough defense/scowl). I'd be pretty happy with that.

This might make you feel better - over his last 5 games for Maine Melo is averaging:

16.4 points (51.5% FG, 70% FT)
9.4 rebounds
6.2 blocks
32.6 minutes

He may still be far from a superstar, but he's certainly showing signs of his talent

Melo currently ranks 1st in the D-league in BLKP48M, 4th in BLK/PF.  If he does get called up anytime this season there is one thing we know for sure - the kid can block shots!

He certainly has the build for the NBA, it will be his head that determines his career. I want to see how he does in a man defense at the NBA level.

Post by: crimson_stallion on January 11, 2013, 11:07:41 PM
Thinking about some of what has been mentioned above, I'm really looking for to seeing Sully and Melo work together in the years to come - the two really are perfect complements.

Sully handling the inside scoring and cleaning up the boards, Melo protecting the paint and defending the P&R.

I see them making one hell of a front line 2 or 3 years down the track.

Throw Avery Bradley's perimeter D into the mix and that's a nice trio of young talent right there.

Green and Lee are starting to pick it up now too.

Jury still out on Rondo.

Sully is really looking like the top 5 pick everyone was talking about two years ago. Im reallyglad in a way the he had the bulging disc (insert Andy Katz here) and he fell to us. Such an intelligent player.

Still hoping he'd grow a couple inches like Paul George did. At 6'11" he'll be a beast. Get a ton of sleep, Sully.

I think Melo has Tyson Chandler potential when he gets his mechanics sound.

He also has the potential makings of Mark Blount, after he signed his lucrative deal.

You don't see a guy average 6 blocks per game over any stretch unless he is playing hard.....yea it's D-league, and he's probably a monster compared to most guys he's guarding, but still. I got some faith in Melo.


Definitely regretting my strong comments to deal Sully + Bradley for Cousins. I still think it's worth it if it were to happen, but it's proving not to be a bad move to keep either of them around as far as "winning now" is concerned.

IMO though, this team is a quality starting Center away from title contention....

Post by: triboy16f on January 12, 2013, 12:50:17 AM
Sully is so good right now that i would not trade him for cousins on a 1 on 1 trade.

Unbelievable iq, motor, hands, strength, touch.

For the past 5 games he leads in nba + - at a ridiculous plus 66.  When he is on the court the other team can't score properly and we go on runs.  He is so important now that Doc had to sit him when he got his 5 fouls with 9 min left in the game just in case houston was going to comeback and sully had to come in to the rescue.

Totally agree. I've been on board for a while now. I love his game. If he or Bradley were to go, I'd vomit. Their energy and promise are what is invigorating us right now, no question. Pierce and KG seem to be fueled by it. Lee looks more confident, Green coming around. We could be a problem, man. This stretch is no fluke... and this trend is what we have seen for the past few seasons now... I'm pumped

This will be the key. I have to think he was red flagged for a reason and I'd hate to see that ruin what looks like a promising career.

   Ditto for me.  I hated the pick when made and was sure he was to fat, slow and undersized to play the position.  Wrong.  From what my eyes tell me he can play against larger people due to his body positioning and smarts.  The guy is becoming a beast.  A smart beast.  Apology from me as well.

announcers have said in practice he has been hitting threes regularly but they also stated in real games you can't have him doing that, bc who else is going to get offensive rebounds for you? who else is going to box out two guys at a time near the rim so that others can get rebounds or score an easy jump shot or layup??

Unless he is like ray allen in shooting threes which i doubt, he is more valuable playing from the free throw line to under the basket.

Just for kicks (and i'm sure some of you well get a kick reading also), i been through a couple of rockets fan websites (clutchfans and thedreamshake) and some of the comments made by fans were,

" how can a fat guy who can't even jump, grab rebounds like that"

" Its not about Sullinger having a lucky game. We have put four different guys on him and he has outplayed everyone of them"

" Asik is being owned by Sullinger"

" How did we take Royce White over Sullinger"

and the best one

" Sullinger is killing us, when is he going to get off the court"

I get a kick reading these comments/perspectives about our boy. Its over at the phoenix fans websites, knicks website etc. Just like how it was at pre draft , fans initially don't think much of Sully. Or he has been lucky. Too fat and slow to do anything. And when he makes his mark at the games, they either want him out of the game or curse their gm's for not picking him when they had the chance.

Post by: ImShakHeIsShaq on January 12, 2013, 03:32:33 PM
I need to say this again b/c this is a Sully love fest going on...

Sully could probably put up Love numbers if he was the main man on a team too. When Sully is on the court he is probably the 5th guy on offense at all times and mostly touches the ball to pass it. He has to constantly worry about stepping on 1000 vets' toes. Not only does Sully pick up rookie fouls b/c he is a rookie, refs don't care about fouling him out because he isn't the franchise rookie like Love was... we have other guys in the spotlight here. If Sully was the main guy on a team refs would swallow their whistles a little more for him (my opinion of the bias in the SterNBA). He would have also been gifted minutes instead of having to earn them here (or have to take less minutes b/c of who we have).

This is going a little overboard, in my opinion.

Kevin Love numbers are somewhere around 26 points and 13 rebounds while shooting 40% from three.  I don't think Sully is anywhere near that level at this point.

I'm surprised by all the folks who didn't like Sully at draft time.  With the 21st pick, I thought he was an absolute no-brainer.

Title: Re: My Personal Apology to Sully
Post by: aporel#18 on January 12, 2013, 04:35:41 PM
I'm loving this, really.

I thought Sully, and also Bradley, were assets to develop for future trades, but these kids are so different from Big Al, to name the biggest project before KG. These kids play D, not good D, but fierce D. They are both building blocks, you need this kind of players to start or come off the bench for your team, and they have the talent to (hopefully) be great players in this league. They can score right now, and they'll only improve in that area.

Now we just need, at least, a Big who can protect the rim and a wing scorer. Melo and Green could be those, but they have to prove it. Add Courtney Lee and a couple of quality role players, one at the wing and one big. Of course, Melo and Green could end not reaching their potential, but I think Danny needs to keep those players to take a chance on that team. Terry, Wilcox, Bass, are players to try to win now, while KG and the Captain are still playing. But that young core needs to stay in green.

Give Sully another month. He'll be even better.

Go Celtics

I agree Melo should be as Gortat by end of next year.  ANd has more ability and easier higher ceiling.

I frankly don't see much to Gortat...If Collins could shoot and play pick n roll a little ,he'd be as good.

I wouldn't trade Rondo,  AB or Sully, Pierce or Green for Gortat..

i think the job ainge has done in getting the team ready to transistion from kg and pp is really amazing
either as trade blocks or the nucleus of the next group he has put together some nice talent, adding to that kg, terry and pp $ coming off books in 2 or so years
green, bass, sully, lee, rondo, bradley (maybe melo) are all young and good, keep that group together and sign a top notch free agent....interesting

Melo has a much higher ceiling than JJJ....Johnson was a four year player in college...generally those guys dont improve that much

Melo on the other hand has barely been playing basketball that long. the scouting report on him always was that he has great defensive instincts/blocker BUT is VERY RAW

Jajuan Johnson being a 4 year college player means he has played against high levels of competition for 4 years adn is more ready to contribute than a 2 year or 1 year college player....he's also gotten better each year.

You thought otherwise earlier ;)

And these are some of your other posts/part of your posts. You seemed pretty high on him at that time :P

I have a feeling this kid is going to be real good in a year or 2....david west type player IMO. kid has the tools to be good

Johnson already has an NBA range of offensive moves. maybe he wont be KG level...but Carl landry level perhaps one day..but I dont think we've seen enough out of him to project either way.

Jajuan Johnson will be a good roleplayer...think carl landry IMO...he's already got a silky NBA jumper

like bass, hes a good "pick and pop" type player, and had a nice turn around jumper in college.

Sully could probably put up Love numbers if he was the main man on a team too.

This is going a little overboard, in my opinion.

Kevin Love numbers are somewhere around 26 points and 13 rebounds while shooting 40% from three.  I don't think Sully is anywhere near that level at this point.

Love is out with an injury for two months, so Sully is gonna crush those 0-0-0 stat lines.

And all joking aside, Love has missed a fair number of games since his rookie year. By the end of this year it looks like around 70 games missed in 4 years.

And Mr Love has shot 21% from three point land this year while attempting 5 a game. If he was on this team, he would be driving a lot of us nuts
