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. Video courtesy of the Boston Celtics Youtube page
