Sullinger praised KG for mentorship; also credited his ass. “My mama blessed me with a beautiful backside.”

The kid’s got some padding back there, that’s for sure.
Maybe that’s the Celtics problem… a bunch of guys with skinny asses.
This isn’t the first time Sullinger’s backside has come up…
“He has the perfect body for rebounding,” Garnett said. “He can take the pounding, bump a little bit, and he has great anticipation, comes to the ball and he has great hands. Put that all in the pot and you’ve got Jared Sullinger and that makes him one of the great up-and-coming rebounders in our game.”
I remember when coaches taught me how to rebound. It was simple: bury your ass into the middle of the guy’s thigh and push. It was their way of saying get low and get position. Sullinger’s roundness (remember, he’s not fat) is just an unfair competitive advantage.
