Boston Celtics rookie big man Jared Sullinger wasn’t selected for the All-Star “Rising Stars” extravaganza. According to Kevin Garnett, the NBA must have excluded his teammate from their secret “agenda”. Of course. Per WEEI: “Garnett was informed after Wednesday’s game that Sullinger, who is averaging over six points and six rebounds a game for Boston, was overlooked in the annual competition of the best first and second-year players in the league. ‘Really? I’m actually shocked,’ Garnett said. Then he expanded upon those thoughts. ‘It doesn’t surprise me,’ he said. ‘This league has, I guess, an agenda in what they want. And Jared’s not in that agenda. I hope it creates a monster within him. I hope it does everything [to] encourage him.’”
