For the week of Monday February 3rd through Sunday February 9th, Jared Sullinger of the Boston Celtics was named Eastern Conference Player of the Week. Sullinger was already named to the NBA’s Rising Stars Challenge coming up on Friday and he continues to play like a beast this season.
In a recent interview with Basketball Insiders’ Jessica Camerato, Sullinger told her that his father Satch gave him a lot of tough love during this season. Satch has been to every Celtics home game to support his son and he is watching him become an NBA All-Star in the making.
Jared Sullinger is in good company because Kevin Durant has been named Western Conference Player of the Week for the Oklahoma City Thunder. One future star is paired with a superstar in the NBA last week and one curious question comes to my mind. A little foreshadowing perhaps?
