Well. there you have it. Having experienced it myself, I'm definitely against domestic abuse and don't feel that there is ever a time for a man to put his hands on a woman in an angry fashion. We know her side of the story and if it's true, maybe Jared should get some counseling. Escalating anger isn't a good thing and it doesn't sound like the Jared Sullinger we have seen in the public.
We haven't heard Jared's side of it yet, and I'd like to before passing judgement on him. Jared's return after back surgery holds a lot of intrigue on the court and I was excited to see how good he could be without the back problems holding him back. When he should be thinking training camp, he'll have to be thinking about his next court appearance. Instead of intrigue on the court, we have intrigue in the courts and that's never good.

Sure, LeBron James never attended an institute of higher learning, nor did he play college basketball for any school, let alone at THE Ohio State University, that has not prevented the Buckeyes from given the Akron, Ohio, native his very own stall in the basketball team’s locker room.

In the first game of the 2013 season, the Ohio State Buckeyes showed how explosive their offense can be in the second year of Urban Meyer’s system. Here at the Empire, we are going to breakdown two of the Buckeyes five scores which went for over 40 yards and also the two-point conversions executed by back-up quarterback Kenny Guiton.

LeBron James, once a high school phenom, didn’t go to college…thus, he didn’t play college basketball. But that hasn’t stopped the Ohio State Buckeyes from giving LeBron a locker stall inside their brand new basketball locker room.
Why? Well, they say it’s because James has given so much branded gear to the university that they want to be able to show it to recruits. It...
Before you can be a starter let alone a star at Ohio State, you have to put on a hard hat, collect your lunch pail and join those sweating it out on special teams.
Almost every well-known Buckeye has played his way onto the first team based on what he did on the grunt squads that are neither offense nor defense. Several probably have cost themselves a starting job by not committing...

LeBron James is bringing his talents to... Columbus?
Technically, the two-time NBA champion is not going to be playing for Ohio State, but he now has a locker in the Buckeyes' locker room.
Ohio State has added the locker with James' name and hometown for several reasons - one of which is that the team has a large supply of team-branded LBJ material.
It’s good to see that Greg Oden signed with Miami, spent some time on South Beach, trained with LeBron and headed right…
We see what you are doing here, Urban Meyer. Ever the ultimate tactician in recruiting, Meyer has added LeBron James' name to the Ohio State locker room.
Galion (OH) junior safety Cario Davison was one of the unofficial visitors at Ohio State's opening win over Buffalo last Saturday. Although not as well known as some of Ohio's top 2015 prospects, Davison is a player to watch.

The Ohio State football team scored 40 points in its season-opening victory vs. Buffalo but Urban Meyer and the Buckeyes want to find better results on the offensive side of the football.
If LeBron James had gone to college, he has said he would have played for Ohio State. A Buckeyes fan his entire life, the team even dons LeBron-endorsed Nike gear. And the OSU football locker room has a new addition this season, a locker dedicated to the Heat star.
