Sullinger's dad has been around since Sully arrived from "THE" Ohio State University. He coached his son through school, and now Satch has provided an inside look at what the Celtics may do this summer.
"I think next year he's going to finally get to play his true position of power forward. And so, at that point, he's going to come home and he's going to trim down and shed some pounds, so he gets a quicker step and a little more mobility. Because they've kinda promised him that they're going to get a center."
I know someone out there isn't happy about what Mr.Sullinger said. I think Sully can play center, and I also think it doesn't matter in today's NBA if Sully is a center or power forward. It's the same in some ways now. I do believe Sully should still come out as the center. I also think Sully should keep the bulk, but in a different way, if that makes sense. He needs to tone his body and to build his body in ways that keeps him healthy.
I don't think Sully can hang with the Hibbert's or Howard's of the world, but those guys are a dying bread. Asik is a guy that keeps coming up. I just don't know about him. I like so many other centers out there. Asik is available I suppose, but I'm not huge on him.
Sully is young enough to show what he can do at center this coming season. He's not your typical center, but will see what happens this summer. Sully will be a impact player regardless of where he plays. I think he'll excel at any spot.
