Beyond the Arc: Jared Sullinger

Boston Celtics rookie forward Jared Sullinger is gearing up for his first NBA season with a fiercely competitive nature and unwavering desire to win.

The Celtics drafted the former Ohio State University standout with the 21st overall pick in this years draft. In his first NBA performances, Sullinger averaged 13.8 points and 8.3 rebounds per game at the Orlando Pro Summer League and 11.2 points and 8.6 rebounds at the Las Vegas Summer League.
CSNNE.com caught up with Sullinger in Las Vegas to go Beyond the Arc, talking his commitment to rebounding, hunger for victory, and his nickname, Smokey the Swag Bear.
