Rivers: 'Let everyone else talk about us'

Two different comments about the Celtics have made the rounds today. One complimentary, and the other not so much. Orlando Magic general manager Otis Smith questioned the Celtics tough reputation by telling the Orlando Sentinel, "They act tough. They're not really tough. They act tough." Asked about it before the Celtics game with the Pistons, Ray Allen responded, "It doesn't matter. We know who we are."

 

Celtics coach Doc Rivers wouldn't even go that far. "I'll let everybody else talk about us," he said. "They seem to do it better than us." Told that Lakers coach Phil Jackson had suggested that Heat couldn't beat the Celtics, Rivers joked, "In that case I think Phil is a genius and I hope he’s right. There’s a lot of playing to be played. We’ll see how that all works out."

Gonzalez throws for first time since surgery

According to Buster Olney of ESPN, Red Sox first baseman Adrian Gonzalez played catch on Monday, the first time he has tossed a baseball since the labrum surgery on his right shoulder was performed on October 20.

 

Gonzalez -- who played catch with his brother, former Padres' second baseman Edgar Gonzalez -- could start swinging a bat sometime in late February if his rehabilitation continues to go well, according to the ESPN report. Gonzalez may report to the Sox' spring training facility the second week of February to continue the rehabilitation process.
