The Top Ten Things That Almost Rhyme with "Jared Sullinger"

It was announced yesterday that Jared Sullinger will miss the remainder of the 2014-15 season with a left metatarsal stress fracture.  Just hours later, the Celts dropped a tough overtime loss to the hated Lakers – who'd been losers of seven straight.

In our fallen forward's honor and in the spirit of nonsensical distraction, today's edition of Celtics Top Ten is: "The Top Ten Things That Almost Rhyme with 'Jared Sullinger.'"

All I want for Christmas is a #StJoesReunion

Bummed that Rajon Pierre Rondo has played his last game in Celtic Green?

I was too.  But then I remembered that, one week ago today, the Globe's Gary Washburn tweeted this:

This new season's, like, PERFECT right now

I thought about how you played the last two games.

About how you're 2-0, and how you won both games by 20 points.  About how you did it all with a healing Rondo on the sidelines, surely readying himself to put his best foot forward in a contract year.  About how Evan Turner actually looked like a no. 2 pick in game no. 1, and how Sully shot the lights out in Hartford.

I stayed up half the night thinkin' about it.
