Jared Sullinger is humbled and embarrassed

Phil Mickelson,  Hunter Mahan, Charl Swartzel  Rickie FowlerJared Sullinger and the Celtics organization have issued statements in the wake of Sullinger’s arrest:

Jared Sullinger statement: “I voluntarily reported to the Waltham police this morning to respond to charges against me. The experience was humbling and embarrassing for me. Yet I know that this situation has brought both sorrow and embarrassment to my girlfriend, my family, the Boston Celtics organization, my teammates, and my fans. To all of you, I apologize from the bottom of my heart. My lawyers have advised me not to discuss the case at this time. But I wanted to immediately and publicly apologize to everyone affected by this situation.”

Celtics statement on Jared Sullinger: “The Celtics were disappointed to learn of the allegations against Jared and are currently gathering more information on the situation, which we are taking very seriously. We will reserve further comment until such point that we have sufficient additional information.”

There you have it. A standard apology from the athletes handbook, “What to Say After You’ve Been Arrested.”

I believe Sully is embarrassed. And if he is guilty of hitting her, I hope he’s punished appropriately.

    Can’t be any worse than anything Jason Kidd has done and he’s still respected (as a player and apparently a coach) around the league so speaking in terms of pure basketball here I think everything will be Okay with him on the C’s.

    Ugh, what a waste. Thought I was cool having the first Sullinger jersey on the block, now I’m not so sure.

  • Ryan Noseworthy

    This is disappointing.

    He’s still calling her his “girlfriend”, so he’s prob gonna end up taking the “anger management” lessons that work so well, and then whatever the C’s punishment is. I don’t think he’s the kind of guy who’s always going to be acting like a jack-ass throughout his career though.

    Now… I would absolutely never hit or condone hitting any person, let alone a woman. (unless someone’s life or health is in jeopardy, of course), but…
    Almost everyone here has jumped to a conclusion without knowing all the facts of the case.
    This is why I dislike social media and moreover mass media. Early judgements…
    Back to #7
    In fact I respect his decision to do all this immensely. And from various points this shows the level of maturity well above his age, human – professional-etc.-wise…
    Finally, would I yell or even be temptedto smash a (i)phone when wrongly aaccused. ..? Who of all of you wouldn’t?! Come forth and lie, please!
    Take some time and when dust settles, we’ll know more. Till then let us focus on basketball things.
    Go Cs!
