What Doc says: "The fact that Jared Sullinger fell to us is just fortunate. Last year, he'd have been a top 5 pick. All year he was a top 10 pick. The fact that he just kept falling to us gives a rebounder, high IQ player, great passer, and a very good shooter from the outside. And it gives us some physical force."
