The Celtics are a proud bunch, and why shouldn't they be? They've put in the work, they've bought into Brad Stevens, and they have the best set up man in basketball itching to get back. The Celtics should be full of "Celtic Pride" and they have every reason to be upset about local TV guys wanting them to tank games, and even fans for that matter.
"Lot of guys expect us to just like tank for [top draft prospects Jabari] Parker or [Andrew] Wiggins," said Sullinger. "Ya'll might as well throw that out the door. I don't know why people keep talking about tanking. We got competitors around here, we're not really like that. We don't care if Jeff [Green] averages 20 [points per game] or I average eight, we just want to win. And show everybody that they can kiss our butts about that tanking stuff."
Have you guys seen the Eastern Conference standings? The Celtics seem prime and ready to reach the playoffs, and late in the season we may see the Nets and Celtics battling for the final spot in the East. Hell the Celtics may still win the Atlantic Division. The return of Rondo is nearing and I don't expect him to play normal Rondo basketball, but it's still an upgrade. Even if Crawford has played well at point.
