“I’ve made a lot of changes – as you all can probably see from this (loose-fitting) shirt,” he said. “When you make a lot of changes, you feel better about yourself, you feel better about your self-esteem. As time goes on, it’s only going to be a better Jared when it comes to off the court, on the court, everything.”
It's nice to see Jared backing up his words with actual action. In his tenure with the Celtics, Sully's had a history of saying the right things but seemingly continuing with bad habits. It appears as if this setback has been a bit of a wakeup call for him, and here's to hoping he can maintain his new habits.
Sullinger has now played in 2 games after missing the previous 22. In that time he's played just 3 and 12 minutes, and has yet to score a point. Though he was able to secure 7 rebounds in his second game back.
To me, the early return from a foot injury is a little unsettling. As we've seen recently with Kevin Durant, and plenty of other cases, the foot can be a tricky thing. A doctor I am not, but it just seems like you're better off playing it safe and giving the foot extra time to return.
