Articles about Jared Sullinger

[...] The intro show deals almost exclusively with Davis, although a fleeting run-down of the other lottery picks is given. One storyline given a bit of focus is the plummeting draft stocks of both Perry Jones III and Jared Sullinger, both projected high lottery picks last year who returned to school, only to have injury red flags completely kill their draft stock this year. Action is thrown over to Andy Katz, who explains that Sullinger is red flagged due to "bulging dicks."


Pick 21: Boston are now on the clock. Jeff Van Gundy, who has been very limited in the last few picks, now gets something in his wheelhouse - an analysis of the future of a decent NBA team. He is nonetheless overshadowed by Broussard, who does the same thing, but basically it exclusively off of what he has been told by others. It is starting to grate.

Boston makes a great value and highly popular pick in Jared Sullinger, whose slump is finally ended. Jay Bilas describes him an way that makes him sound more Brian Scalabrine than Marcus Fizer, neither of which is the ideal prognosis. Glen Davis is a better comparison, which Bilas also brings up, taking care to point out that Sullinger is actually better than Baby. That, ultimately, will be determined by his back.

Ohio State lost their best player to the NBA, and came back better than ever. Their freshman crop of Jared Sullinger, Aaron Craft and Deshaun Thomas has been perhaps the best freshman crop in the nation, and the returning David Lighty, William Buford, Jon Diebler and Dallas Lauderdale have all improved. The Buckeyes only go 7 deep, save for the occasional guest jumpshooter spot by fellow freshman Jordan Siebert, but they only need to go 7 deep. They could probably do it with only 5. They could probably even do it with only 4.

[...] But the unquestioned leader of the bunch is Sullinger, the most skilled big man in the country. Sullinger has size, good agility for that size, strength, great hands and a high IQ. He can go left or right in the post, make shots with either hands, and has a knack for catching lobs. He creates in post isolation, gets open without the ball, does his work early, tries hard on every [offensive] possession, rebounds prolifically, is a good passer, good post defender and reasonable perimeter/help defender, who welcomes contact, finishes through contact, handles well for a big man, hits his foul shots, and even has a bit of a jumpshot on the go. He is everything Marcus Fizer should have been, but never was. He is Marcus Fizer with the discipline to play like a power forward. And of course, this is meant as high praise.
