"I just know I'm not as active as I was before," the younger Sullinger told CSNNE.com, and added that he has lost about 10 pounds since his Feb. 1 season-ending surgery. "Before, I could eat that food, but I was at shoot-around after that or doing my pre-game routine. But now, it's like I'm just sitting here or doing a little bit of things for rehab but it's not the same. The way my metabolism is, weight can go through the roof if I don't watch it."
"I get a chance to learn from a lot of really great players, and be part of a winning tradition," Sullinger said. "That's helped me out a lot as a rookie, and I know it'll help me later in my career."
"I feel good, real good about my future," Sullinger said.
That future will likely not include any action with the Celtics' summer league team that's scheduled to play in Orlando, Fla. this summer.
The earliest anyone anticipates Sullinger on the floor is during training camp, which he said on Friday was indeed the plan.
But between now and then, he'll continue to attack his rehab the way he does loose balls, and avoid as best he can anything that could derail his progress - like his dad's catfish.
I can not wait for this guy to comeback. We truly need him now, and I hope he learns a lot over the summer, and that he continues to get fit. He's a big part of the Celtics future, and it starts again next year.
