Sullinger’s message to pro-tankers: Kiss our butts

Chuck - Red's Army December 2, 2013 Celtics News, Jared Sullinger 7 Comments

sullyhookJared Sullinger is getting fed up with the tanking talk:

“Lot of guys expect us to just like tank for [top draft prospects Jabari] Parker or [Andrew] Wiggins,” said Sullinger. “Y’all might as well throw that out the door. I don’t know why people keep talking about tanking. We got competitors around here, we’re not really like that. We don’t care if Jeff [Green] averages 20 [points per game] or I average 8, we just want to win. And show everybody that they can kiss our butts about that tanking stuff.”

Sullinger is a team-best plus-44 in plus/minus this season and no one else among regulars is in the positive. In fact, Boston is a staggering minus-113 when Sullinger is off the court. The second-year big man has been the Celtics’ most consistent two-way player, but even he’s not thrilled with his individual achievements because of the team’s overall record.

“Not really happy with the numbers because we’re what, 7-12?” asked Sullinger. “I’m not really happy about that. But I can play better. And I will play better.”

I love this guy’s baby hook shot. Love it.

I also love his attitude and willingness to commit hard fouls.

I need a cold shower.

    I love watching his 3s drop right through the center of the basket hitting nothing but net

    I love his Mentality. His play as of late has been terrific, just wish they ran more plays for him in the post rather than throwing up 3′s, i mean i don’t mind them but they need to get a better sense of whats best, and most effective, i mean he’s just so smooth in the post, really fun to watch

    Going back to this mornings dump, i think him drawing double teams will open things up for jeff green and get him going more consistently. Then when you throw Rondo into that mix we could be like a decent team which could somehow win the Atlantic this year. Now, with that being said i would rather have this team end up losing more so we can plug in say Jabari Parker and really have a team that could do some damage…

      The way things are going in New York, theres a real chance we could win the division. Depends when Rondo comes back and how much his return affects the teams chemistry from the jump.
