Solid post, and I completely agree about it being Danny's call, just as it was last year.

I like your Raptors analogy. Suns would be another best case scenario analogy.

You had already busied yourself with comparing Al's first two years with both Sully and Kelly.

Hey, you're the one who responded to my comment.

Yeah, sure, because to take your logic further, a four year player, four years older than a kid out of high school couldn't reasonably be expected to be more developed physically and in his game.
Commented on If you're waiting for the Celtics' 'fireworks,' it might be a while on Aug 11 2014, 12:55p - 1 reply
And still no acknowledgement of the fact that Al came straight out of h.s. when making these bogus comparisons.
Commented on If you're waiting for the Celtics' 'fireworks,' it might be a while on Aug 11 2014, 12:53p - 1 reply
Yes, you keep wanting to compare those first two years as though Al didn't come straight out of high school and Sully after two years after college.

Do you or don't you agree with the statement "Not a single one of our young guys is as highly regarded as Big Al was in the summer of 07."

Again, not taking into consideration that Sully was two years older at that point after two seasons.

For a guy who likes to muck around in stats as much as you do, you seem strangely innumerate when they don't support your case.

Christ, mmmm, do you not recognize that Sully went to college for 2 years, while Al came straight out of H.S.
Commented on If you're waiting for the Celtics' 'fireworks,' it might be a while on Aug 10 2014, 10:56a
Comparing numbers of Al, straight out of H.S. vs rookie numbers of Olynyk (4 years Gonzaga) and Sully (two years Ohio State).

This sub-conversation was about how Celtics assets are regarded. You're kidding yourself if you think Sully is regarded as highly as 2007 Al was.

For me, it's not about comparing Sully and Al's numbers in gauging how they are regarded.
