- Awesome read from Jason King on Jared Sullinger's upbringing. I love this quote: "To me," J.J. says, "he's still the snotty-nosed kid who my parents made sit in his room for 30 minutes when he wouldn’t take out the trash. I'm proud of him for how he’s handled this. It's because he’s got such great parents – and great brothers. Jared will never, ever – not for one second – get the big head. Because if he does he knows he'll get hacked in the mouth by Julian or me."
