Jared Sullinger responds to fans who keep telling him to lose weight

Jared Sullinger is one of the portliest players in the NBA, a rebound machine who knows how to throw his weight around. But being a heavy professional basketball player isn't all great. It prevents Sullinger from going as many minutes as the Boston Celtics would like to play him, and on defense he's habitually a beat slow guarding quicker players in space. His weight has been an...

Jared Sullinger is entering the most important year of his life

Jared Sullinger wishes you would believe in him

[begin sarcasm]No matter how many years Jared Sullinger remains at an inflated playing weight, people keep thinking he will continue weighing in heavy. No matter how many conditioning-related injuries he suffers, people keep assuming he will deal with more conditioning-related injuries.
