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.'"

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:
There's only one way Danny Ainge can make up for the Worst Early Christmas Present Ever...
...Reunite the UNSTOPPABLE backcourt behind the 27-0 (undefeated!!!) 2003-2004 St. Joseph's University Hawks.

Yesterday, the Boston Celtics' cantankerous captain let us know via coach Brad Stevens that he's now 83% likely to play in tonight's season opener against old pal Kevin Garnett and the Brooklyn Nets (up from 79% just the day before). Today, we play Follow-the[-Team]-Leader and use those same arbitrary odds to preview the upcoming year for the boys in Green & White...

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.
