Jared Sullinger kicked off Celtics Media Day by giving Celtic Nation a momentary shock - Saying he was 'not close' when questioned about his back recovery. Celtics fans can take a sigh of relief though:
Sullinger is expected to start Celtics training camp healthy, but is a long way away from being 'in shape.' Something Danny Ainge seems to agree with stating that "(Sullinger) needs to get in better shape, thought last year he had to get in better shape too." With the concerns to Sullinger's back, it certainly makes sense why the President of Basketball Operations would be interested in seeing his young prospect lose a few pounds.
