Found July 17, 2012 on Celtics Life:
The NBA just posted the above video to their YouTube page, which compiles an interview with Jared Sullinger, footage from his summer league play, and interviews with Doc and Tyronn Lue. In the interview, Sullinger talks about his strong points, as well as mentioning that it was a humbling experience to fall out of the top 10 draft picks, but he would do it all over again in order to become a Boston Celtic. Sullinger says that he is ready to play at the NBA level, and "to be a part of the greatest franchise in all of sports means everything to me." We are excited to have you in Boston too, Sully! Not to mention, he plays great with Christmas, can we get him as well?
