Jared Sullinger worked at a Taco Bell for a day (for charity)


NBA Rookies are paid on the low end of the NBA scale, but it’s not quite “I need to pick up a side job” money either.

Yet there was Celtics big man Jared Sullinger working at a Taco Bell Wednesday.

The medical expenses from his back surgery where not that bad, this was all done for charity reports NESN.

Jared Sullinger became the latest professional athlete to join the effort to support the victims of April’s Boston Marathon bombings on Wednesday. The Celtics forward thought outside the bun and worked a shift at Taco Bell, selling $1 Doritos Locos Tacos. The proceeds from the tacos benefited The One Fund Boston.

I’m pretty sure Doritos Locos Tacos are not on the list of things that the Celtics nutritionist wants Sullinger to eat a lot of to help his recovery. Well, unless they’re the Cool Ranch ones. That’s different.

Good on Sullinger for this.
