Video: Sullinger & family’s reaction to being drafted

This is pretty cool.  I love seeing these because we always tend to forget how exciting these moments are for these kids.  Remember, they’re young… some are still teenagers, some are in their early 20′s… and as much as they’re big-time college players, there’s a dream being realized here.  No matter how big a player [...]
