WALTHAM, Mass. — Jared Sullinger is too big to trick or treat anymore, but he does have fond memories from his childhood.
Among his most memorable outfits was when he dressed as Superman.
"My mom stuffed a whole bunch of pillows in my Superman outfit," Sullinger recalled. "Unfortunately I sweated out all those pillows and it was disgusting. I got sick the next day."
And that meant he had to stay home from school, the kind of silver lining that just about any kid would embrace.
"That's the only good thing about Halloween sometimes," Sullinger said. "You go out there, you're really bundled up, you start sweating, the next day you're sick. Didn't have to go to school, so that's one thing that I liked."
Coach Brad Stevens wouldn't say what outfits his two young children would wear tonight.
"Can't go there. Can't go there," quipped Stevens. "I'll give you a hint. We really like the Batman series and we really like Star Wars in our house."
