Sullinger thinks he'll be able to elevate his play next season, in part because he's now familiar with the NBA lifestyle and because he might actually be able to elevate.

"I think I’ll come back better just because, with the back problem, I had limitations and doctors told me the two disks being herniated, it was only making my legs weaker," Sullinger explained. "Hopefully it’s a sign that I might be able to get off the ground more than two inches."

Haha, hopefully we'll see Sully three inches off the ground next season, three and a half if we're lucky!
Reclaiming the NBA Throne is easy.

All we need is a powerful beast that can soar up to the skies and lay waste on our enemies. One with potential to wreak havoc and strike fear. With such a mythical being, we can take back what is ours - with fire and blood.

I hear talk that such a beast is projected #1 overall in the 2014 draft.

Maybe it'll be a Blake Griffin type situation? Obviously they're COMPLETELY different types of forwards but they both had season ending surgery their rookie year, and Griffin came back really strong.

Sure, if he can stop fouling so much.

He would have been a 10/10 guy this year if he could stay on the court.

He won't be a rookie next year so hopefully the refs cut him some slack. He got the shaft on a number of calls this season.

Maybe, but a lot of his fouls were legitimate. And of ten unnecessary.
