Some of the players from the NBA Rising Stars game spoke about Jared Sullinger and his absence from the rookie/sophomore game at All-Star weekend.
All spoke highly of Sullinger's talent and potential to be a star in the NBA. Cleveland Cavalier Tristan Thompson, who has known Sullinger since high school, divulged a story about a trip to France where Sullinger only wanted to eat food from McDonalds. And 2012 #1 overall draft pick Anthony Davis said that it was a shame that Sullinger's injury kept him from participating in the Rising Stars game, but if I remember correctly, Sullinger was snubbed from the game several hours before the start of the Celtics-Kings game, where his injury occurred.
In any case, not just Celtics' fans appreciate Sullinger's talent, and all are hoping for a speedy recovery and return to the NBA.

He did take the floor as the starting center for the Eastern Conference, however, fulfilling his due diligence in the lineup and saluting the fans.
The big man does, after all, have a surging...

Just five weeks ago, Carmelo Anthony hated Kevin Garnett. We all know the story; Anthony and Garnett were going at it in a tightly contested game back on Jan. 8. It got chippy and the two started jawing and before long, Garnett went below the belt like he normally does and allegedly said that Anthony’s wife “tastes like Honey Nut Cheerios.”
Now I’m not married but if...
