Sullinger appears in court

I really don't have much to say about this.


Boston Celtics forward Jared Sullinger appeared in Waltham District Court on Monday for a pretrial hearing and is due back for a second pretrial session on Oct. 28, according to media reports.

Sullinger pleaded not guilty to charges of assault and battery, malicious destruction of property and witness intimidation on Sept. 3 and was released on $5,000 bail. He was arrested after an alleged altercation with his live-in girlfriend at his Waltham residence on Aug. 31.

According to reports, Sullinger's lawyer Charles Rankin noted that Sullinger has abided by the court's initial ruling that he only have contact with his girlfriend with a third party present. His girlfriend's lawyer has filed an affidavit with the court stating that her client “did not want to pursue the case and is not fearful of Mr. Sullinger."

Asked about his client, Rankin told reporters at the courthouse, "He's doing fine. He’s embarrassed but doing fine, and hoping it comes to an end soon," according to MassLive.com.

WEll, it sounds like Sully should be feeling something a lot stronger than embarrassment.

What to say is right. Disappointing I guess.

It sounds like the man should be profoundly ashamed of himself, not just embarrassed, and scared too. Had that situation gotten any more out of hand, he could be looking at serious jail time now. Sometimes life is more important than basketball. Take the time, Sully, to figure out what went wrong here and how to try to learn from it and become a better person. That's more important than basketball.
