He is being more productive than thomas robinson who was drafted 5th overall, 16 spots above him.

From what I've seen, sullinger plays smarter than T-rob, which is giving him the advantage in their early NBA careers.

T-rob is definitely more athletically gifted however and should become a very good player.

Major respect for Bowen on this. He knows whats up. The spineless media does not, however.

wrong thread sorry

For what it's worth...Hollinger has Sully ranked 13th in PER for all rookies.  6th in Rebound rate.  8th in True Shooting.

He's ranked 44th overall for all PFs.


Interestingly...Chris Wilcox has the 3rd highest True Shooting % in the league.

I think Sully will be a great PF for us down the road.

I guess that's what happens when you're an athletic big that rolls hard to the basket when you play with Rondo! Beautiful to watch!

I think Sully's going to a really solid player for us in the coming years (provided Danny doesn't trade him).  hopefully something like a healthier (yet less athletic) Leon Powe.  does the dirty work on the boards, scores buckets in the paint and gets to the line (a lot).

Sully has been tossed in the fire to spell Bass.  And he holds his own pretty darn good for a kid, I think.  He seems to have earned the respect of KG and Pierce , two old hard nosed players.  There are some HOT-SHOT rookie guards with great numbers and couple guys on really lousey teams playing tons of minutes making better numbers.

But, as a TRUE rookie,  not some 25 year old joker who played ball in Italy for years making his NBA start,  SUlly just playing the amount of minutes he plays I bet he is one of the best out there. Go in and does exactly what he is told and plays hard "EVERY GAME" and he might get out foxxed , but  never quits .

Lakers would LOVE to have Sully ,I can tell you.

I think he has way more potential than Leon ever had. Sully is much much better on the offensive end but I still think he can play the dirty work, hustle role that Leon was so great at. For the NBA, I never thought Leon had much of a post game or jump shot, he got his points off of hustle, rebounds, and transition plays. Sullinger is a guy we could give the ball in the post to, or he could make a move to the basket facing up his opponent.

He has been put in a position to be successful (good coaching and management) and has taken that opportunity to succeed and grow (what you want out of the player)


Hopefully they keep adding more and more to his plate as he continues to grow.

i like what i see in sully thus far.  i hope he continues to mature and grow.  i like how doc has given him an opportunity, but is doing so the right way, in moderation.  crossing my fingers that there is no "rookie wall" and he continues to develop and eventually play an impactful role for us.

He has got to be one of the slowest players that I've ever seen in my life, and he needs to lose 10-20 pounds.  Based on what I've seen so far, he's not close to being as good as Powe was at his best.  He is a good passer and a good rebounder, I'll say that.  Defense is average to slightly above average.  Jury is still out on this guy from where I sit.

He plays atrocious defense.

Hopefully some GM out there gets enamored with Sully's offensive #'s and trades us a REAL big man.

I loathe undersized, slow-footed, no-defense, all-offense PFs.  UGH!

Powe/Baby we're both pretty bad their first few years. (Powe never really got to playing good defense) But both figured it out with time how to play effectively, as has Bass.

Giving up on a useful big man 15 games into his rookie season because he's bad defensivelY? Most rookies are really bad defensively.

I think Sullinger will develop and become a good starter for years to come with this team. Just give him some time...
