Kyrie Irving so quickly and completely made the Celtics his team, it feels like he's been here forever.

But in reality, it's only been half a year. Thursday marked the six-month anniversary of the stunning deal that brought Irving to Boston and sent Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, and the last...Read more

My remark about Tom Brady’s daughter was ridiculous and reprehensible. I am deserving of all the criticism that has come my way over the last four weeks. 

I would like to take this opportunity to publicly apologize to the Brady family. I am truly sorry. 

I wrote Tom a note of apology...Read more

In a three-day span, the Bruins have acquired Nick Holden from New York and moved up a handful of spots in the third-round by way of a trade with the Panthers.

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- They missed the mark again.

Red Sox principal owner John Henry and chairman Tom Werner do this once a spring training, sitting down on the bench outside JetBlue Park to offer a sort of state of the union to kick off spring training. They talk and talk and talk, and then...Read more

It’s been two weeks since Super Bowl LII, but the Patriots and their staff have no time to rest, as the NFL scouting combine and free agency are just weeks away.
