  • I'm a Paul Heyman guy.
He is improving. I like the way he's contributing and I hope it's a steady improvement.

I'm not asking for a 20/10 guy (although him being one would be fantastic), but if he could give us 14 ppg, 6-7 rebs, a block on 50% shooting, solid effort and defense I'd be so happy.

Also, I want him to grow, maybe 2 inches more? I mean the man can dream right? Paul George grew, here's hoping he does as well. I mean if he's 6'11", he'll be VERY useful.

LOL, yea, why not? Let's keep feeding him and maybe he will grow!

There's this thing called Cherifer in the Philippines. I'd be happy to order him some if it will work, and not a banned substance.

Um, what?  I don't think I've ever met one single person from the Phillipines who stands more the 6ft.

Great people, just really short.

Which is why they have that vitamins thing. It's supposed to help you grow.

Hey I'm 5'11", that's close...

Glad to see the improvement.

Because we're going to have to trade him, and the higher his value the better.

I think we really need to consider how good this guy can be. I really believe he can be Kevin Love 2.0 or close to it.

Yes, actually.

I took some of the vitamins hoping i'd be 6'4", I think it only gave me an inch.

I hope I am wrong but looking at his rookie stats he doesn't project as a 20/10 or all star guy folks.   I want to be wrong on this but I think there is a lot of hometown bias on this thread.   His stats are barely better than Glen Davis as a rookie.

I think he does have a place in the league.   Cream always rises but I think some of these projections are homerists at best and delusional at the least.

did Glen Davis project to be a 16 and8 guy like he is now? probably not...that said sully could be a 20 and 10 guy on a non contender rather easily in my mind and a solid contributor on any contender

Per 48 (as rookies)

Sully   14.6pts 13.8rb 1.2blk 1.2stl 11.8 FGA  .49 fg%

Boozer  19.0pts 14.3rb 1.2blk 1.4stl 14.5 FGA  .53 fg%

BBD     16.0pts 10.6rb 1.0blk 1.6stl 11.3 FGA  .48 fg%

Brand   26.0pts 13.0rb 2.1blk 1.1stl 20.9 FGA  .48 fg%

Big AL  21.0pts 13.5rb 2.1blk 1.4stl 17.1 FGA  .49 fg%

Love    21.1pts 17.2rb 1.2blk 0.8stl 16.1 FGA  .45 fg%

at there best per game

Boozer  21pt 10rb

BBD     16pt 8rb

Brand   25pt 10rb

Big AL  23pt 11rb

Love    26pt 15rb

With these comparisons I expect Sully to develop into at least 15pt 10rb a game starter if he stay healthy and continues to develop. He could potentially surpass that 15pts a game if featured in an offense like boozer was but this isn't ideal.

I think its just a matter of time before Sully is starting.  I think Doc is holding off on it, because he wants to make sure that Sully doesn't revert to his intermittent effort that he was showing earlier in the season.  But, now that the effort seems to be much more consistent (and the fouls seem to be dropping a bit as well), it might be time to pull the trigger.

It really is only a matter of time.  It's a trust thing. 

There's times where you can see Rondo wants Sully to take a jumper and he'll hesitate.  And other times where he'll put up a jumper because he thinks he's supposed to hit from that distance, but it's not within the flow of the offense.

Once Doc and Rondo can trust Sully's decision making he'll start.  I trust Doc in being patient...something i lose a bit more of every time i see Bass get beat on a backdoor cut or missed rotation.  The man is made to be a 6th man.

I think that's an extremely premature verdict, especially about a guy with physical issues who has not demonstrated that he can defend adequately and consistently in this league.

He looks to me like a 12 and 6 ceiling guy in this league, with work, improvement and extreme good fortune with his back, a problem that rarely yields good fortune in this league - hardly of Kevin Love's caliber.

all i can say is Sully the Bully. David West got punked tonight.

I don't think the kid realizes how strong he is even. He needs to be careful with fouls

He perfects that jump shot plus lowers his fat percentage another percentage or two, and we got another boozer in our hands.

He has been a huge factor the last two weeks.

I would love to see him vs Big Baby soon. That would be a fantastic matchup

What i appreciate about this kid the most is his motor. It looks like he really enjoys playing the game too

When you got a guy with a non stop motor, it doesn't matter if your winning by 20 or losing by 20, he will keep bringing it, like the team has been on a 10 game winning streak.

I hope we can see more offense from him eventually, but if not, its ok because he still helps your team win in other ways.

Another great game by Sully the Bully.

Anytime he is on the court, we are a plus team.

He has never been taken adv of inside yet and caused frustrations for alot of big vet guys he has faced.

Horford is no lightweight, and at times he was manhandling him.

Like i've stated a few times, can't wait to see him and baby go at it.

Who you guys think is stronger, BBD or Sully?

Sully's physical strength is hugely impressive
