I'd be shocked if he wasn't there

College star, big storyline at the draft, has been a contributing role player on his team since the very beginning of the season... I'd say it's a lock. Not to mention that he's a guy they've been covering consistently on that "NBA Rooks" program. I think it's 100% that he's there.

Sully is no Sir Charles. Chuck was athletic, Sully is not. Charles is 6'6, Sully is 6'9.

i dont think its fair to say sully is not athletic. to play in the NBA at ahigh level, there has to be some athleticism involved. sure hes not at a hall of fame type athleticism, but i wouldnt say hes not athletic.

We're obviously discussing his athleticism in the contest of professional basketball.

He is currently ranked as a top rookie in nba. I will be surprised if Chuck nor Shaq will draft him on their team.

I think there's no doubt

I think there is some doubt, just because of his position.

Here are the locks for the rookie team I think...

Davis
Drummond
Beal
Lillard
Barnes
Kidd-Gilchrist
Waiters

Then the guys on the bubble are very big man heavy.

Shved I think is the only other guard who really deserves to be in it.  Then you have:

Sullinger
Zeller
Valanciunas
Robinson (who is heating up now, and has the political benefit of the high pick) 
Henson (also has been hot lately
Singler
Ezeli

And Sully has a good case against most if not all of those guys, but it is not cut and dry, and some of them are going to be left off in favor of guards.

It's not just those guys.

You have to take account of all the sophomores too.

Tristan Thompson
Chandler Parsons
Kyrie Irving
Brandon Knight
Kenneth Faried
Ricky Rubio
Klay Thompson
Kawhi Leonard


Reclaiming the NBA Throne is easy.

All we need is a powerful beast that can soar up to the skies and lay waste on our enemies. One with potential to wreak havoc and strike fear. With such a mythical being, we can take back what is ours - with fire and blood.

I hear talk that such a beast is projected #1 overall in the 2014 draft.

Hope so. It's always nice to have the Celtics being represented at the break. Plus I'd actually watch the game
