    Sullinger in Rising Stars challenge?

    Just as I predicted the other day, Sully rose to #5 on the NBA rookie ladder.

    Sullinger has been one of the best rookies in the new year, keying the Celtics to a six-game winning streak by averaging 9.8 points and 9.3 rebounds in 25.3 minutes per game off the bench. Sullinger will likely be one of the rookies playing at the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge, and teammate Paul Pierce says he'd be shocked if he wasn't there. "I think that's like a no-brainer," Pierce said recently. "In the rookie class, I can't even name five quality rookies. [Sullinger] is playing well and playing significantly for the ball club. I definitely think he should be there."

    props to sully, kinda a backhanded compliment by pierce (i cant even name 5 qualitiy rookies)... im sure playing with this group is hardening sully even more... hes prolly the best celtic rook since paul no?.... as tempted as i am to wonder about his trade value, he has the potential to be a great celtic..... drummond is a beast and is flying under the radar.... a rivers and my boy t wroten shoulda stayed in school.

    Nice to see him getting some recognition. Now if only he had Fab Melo's body.
    The name is Amendola....
