Broussard: Players feel KG is 'all bark'
By: DJ Bean

ESPN basketball analyst Chris Broussard joined Steve Buckley and Kirk Minihane Tuesday on The Big Show, discussing the Celtics and the 2011-12 NBA season. 

The C's kicked off the season Sunday with a 106-104 loss to the Knicks. After missing what would have been the game-tying shot and losing the game, Garnett went after Knicks guard Bill Walker and put his hand around Walker's throat. It isn't the first incident in which Garnett's behavior has been called into question, but he was not penalized by the league. 

"Around the league, there's just a feeling that KG is all bark and no bite," Broussard said of Garnett. "Everybody respects his game, no question about that, but in terms of the extracurricular stuff, if you will, picking on guys, guys feel like he picks and chooses who he'll pick on. 

"Bill Walker isn't necessarily the type of guy Garnett has gone after in the past, so I wouldn't be surprised if...

Light on Mankins: 'Cowboy will ride again'

FOXBORO -- Matt Light spoke Tuesday for the first time since a late foot ailment kept him out of Saturday's game against the Dolphins.

"We're getting there, buddy," a grinning Light told reporters at his locker on Tuesday. "I just wasn't able to go the other day, unfortunately. It's a tough deal, game day, making that decision. But we'll work this week and get back out there. It's feeling better."

As for teammate Logan Mankins, who reportedly suffered a sprained MCL in his left knee, Light said Mankins was with him in team meetings all day and will return, though his initial reaction was not optimistic.

"Not good," Light said of Mankins' injury. "He's a tough guy, a guy that's never missed a practice or a game, or had any of those kind of issues. When you see that happen, it's always tough to watch. But I'm sure the Cowboy will ride again. He'll be good."

As for the team's offensive line come...

Pats sign FB Polite for extra protection

FOXBORO -- In an effort to replenish their run-blocking resources, the Patriots have signed fullback Lousaka Polite to a contract, the team announced Tuesday.

Polite's signing comes after Logan Mankins reportedly sprained the MCL in his left knee during Saturday's win over the Dolphins. Mankins is almost certainly lost for the season finale this Sunday and is a question mark for the playoffs. Donald Thomas, who has been used in some situational fullback plays, was moved to left guard to take Mankins spot, after Mankins was moved to left tackle to take the place of the injured Matt Light. 

Polite could fill the void at siutaitonal fullback in short yardage situaitons as soon as this Sunday in the season finale against the Bills. The Patriots had a roster spot open with the release of safety Ross Ventrone on Monday. 

This season, Polite played in four preseason games for the Dolphins, but hasn't played in a regular-season game...

Wojnarowski: Rondo must dominate

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, in an interview on the Dennis & Callahan Show on Tuesday morning, said that while the Celtics have discussed the possibility of trading point guard Rajon Rondo several times, the team would only consider dealing him at this point for a "franchise-type" player. Whereas GM Danny Ainge and Celtics brass once considered banishing Rondo because of his fit on the team, Wojnarowski said that is no longer the case.

"For all the talks he has been in, and he has been in a lot of talks, I don't think Danny Ainge is ever going to trade him unless they got back a superstar. I think that was their goal. Because of his contract, because he's young, he's the one piece they have that has appeal to teams," said Wojnarowski. "Over two years ago, they put him out there when he was really having some issues getting along with teammates, being coachable. They dangled him to Detroit. They dangled him to Memphis....
