Sullinger Tires Of Critics, Eager To Prove He Can Play At Pro Level
Jared Sullinger has grown tired of critics claiming he doesn’t have the physical tools to succeed in the NBA.
"I don't need athleticism to be good," Sullinger said. "I have learned to accept that; I wish everybody else would."
If you're an NBA team and "you want to draft somebody that's stupid athletic and is able to touch the top of the backboard, but has no skills or is just raw with talent, by any means, take that," Sullinger said.
Sullinger measured well at 6-foot-9 with a wingspan of more than 7-1.
"If you can play in the post, you can play in the post," Sullinger said.
