Jared Sullinger has already proved to be a steal in the draft if for nothing else than the fact that he's cracked the regular rotation for a coach who has rarely played rookies regular minutes from the start of the season. Sully has proved to be a very smart player who has a knack for grabbing rebounds. Just what the Celtics needed. He also seems like a nice kid who has been taught the right way in both basketball and life by his coach/father. So, I'm excited to see that the Herald is going to be featuring a blog written by the Celtics' rookie. Posting Up With Sully is going to be a regular feature in the Herald where Sully shares his thoughts with the fans. In today's blog, Sully shares his experiences in his first month in the NBA. It's interesting to read his thoughts as he is learning about life in the NBA. We had one incredible stretch when we played seven games in 10 days, and I had never been through something like that, unless you count AAU ball. It was rough for me because it was my first time doing a stretch like that. I had to find out what works for me, what doesn’t work for me, what to eat, what not to eat, should I go with more Gatorade or more water. I had to find my niche to stay comfortable through that stretch. He shares things that he is learning about himself and about the game. He is changing his diet and learning what he needs to eat to be his best on the court. Seems like every player talks about changing their diets and eating differently once they get to the NBA. One thing every player doesn't have is Kevin Garnett's ear, which Sully has the privilege to have on a regular basis. He said in a previous interview that coming into camp, he was determined just not to let KG make him cry. Kevin (Garnett) always gives me good advice and tells me what to do. I can always run to him and ask any question I want, and he’ll always give me a straight up answer. The first time I met him I thought he was an intense guy on the court, and then I found out he’s intense off the court too. He takes pride in what he does. So far I've loved watching Sully on the court. He fights hard for rebounds and put backs. There's no quit in him when he's under the basket. I love his attitude and his work ethic. It's going to be fun reading his thoughts as he goes through his first season. You can check out the first entry in his blog here. [Discuss on CG Forums!]
