Your Morning Dump… Where Jared Sullinger loves being an underdog

 

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.

While promoting the online education program of Provost Academy, former Buckeye Jared Sullinger took some time to address the education he’s getting as a player who is still fairly new to the NBA.  Sullinger looks forward to being an underdog next season, loves the idea of playing for coach Brad Stevens (even if he concedes some people wonder how he can take a man who looks that young seriously), and he praises Rajon Rondo as a man who protects his teammates.

 

Fear the Hat – Sullinger on Provost, the Pros and Promoting his dad’s new book

Sullinger has been in the news a bit lately around his home town and has been discussing all sorts of things.  In an interview on a local TV station that we highlighted earlier, Sully said he was doing well and hoped that teammate Rajon Rondo would be back sometime in December.  In the video above, he also discusses Rondo, saying that if he’s within your inner circle (i.e. your teammate) he’s always got your back and is a great teammate.  Among other topics that he goes into are: his dad’s new book coming out, how he thinks his alma mater will fare this season and just how much he enjoys being an underdog.  That’s good, because there won’t be many games this season when the Celtics won’t be underdogs.  Glad to see that he is doing better.  His half season was one of the bright spots in an otherwise dark season last year.

    Man if there’s no rondo till December I seriously think us getting wiggins is within reach especially with brutal January right around the corner. But ill still watch every game :)

    Rondo must have told him I can’t see him saying a month unless he had a good source.

    Sully is quickly becoming one of my favorite Celtics. He really seems like a good, hardworking guy, the kind of person C’s fans love.

    Love this guy – he works as hard as Perk used to but with a better skill set. If Rondo is out until December then Rondo should take the whole year off a la Derrick Rose. There’s no point in rushing him back to make this team mediocre. I’d rather watch the team bottom out, get a high draft pick, and guarantee a healthy RR for the following year. If he plays all year, we are a 7th or 8th seed. If he plays half the year, we are crappy but not wholly awful. I either want to be wholly awful or good. I’m terrified of the in between. Anyway, Sully is definitely a bright spot for this team. I hope he stays healthy.

    He looks like he also loves being stoned.
