Jared Sullinger on Celtics Tanking: ‘They Can Kiss our Butts About That’

Let’s just say that Boston Celtics forward Jared Sullinger isn’t with most fans’ desire for the team to tank away the season with such a loaded NBA Draft class on the horizon. Sullinger vows to compete for wins. Per the Boston Herald: “For those who actually think that players are part of the tanking process, Jared Sullinger has a message. The Celtics forward actually dared to talk about the playoffs following yesterday’s practice. ‘A lot of guys expect us to tank for (Jabari) Parker or (Andrew) Wiggins,’ said Sullinger of two of the projected top prospects in the 2014 NBA draft. ‘I don’t know why people keep talking about tanking. We have competitors around here. We don’t care if Jeff (Green) averages 20 or I average 8. We just want to win, and show everybody that they can kiss our butts about that tanking stuff.'”
