Gary Tanguay questions Bob Ryan, aka Grampa Celtic, about this season's Celtic team. He has been most impressed with Jared Sullinger. He refers to Sully's "alleged back issues" and asks how far back we have to go to find a guy we can just throw the ball to in the post and say go to work.
He also feels that we should keep Jason Terry on the bench. If you have a guy who embraces the role of Sixth Man and loves coming off the bench, you should keep him there. Again, he goes back to Eddie House, who also embraced the role. He added that Jet is much better than Eddie House and that we haven't had a guy who could provide energy and instant offense off the bench for awhile.
He calls Pierce cagey and wily and feels that he won't have any drop off this season. He expects Doc to continue to religiously guard KG's minutes and as long as he stays healthy, he will continue to play at a high level.
As far as Rondo being the leader, he feels that KG, Pierce and Rondo all have a specific leadership niche on the team. KG is the emotional leader and the center of the defense. Pierce is the scoring leader and the Captain. Rondo has the ball and is the leader of the offense and of the team on the court. Good stuff. Grampa Celtic still has it!
