Ainge on Big Show: 'I like the mix'

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge joined The Big Show for his weekly visit and said that the team was likely to stay intact through the rest of the season. The trade deadline is Feb. 24, but Ainge pointed to the return of Kendrick Perkins last week, as well as the return of Delonte West, hopefully in late February. "Of course there's players out there that are good players, but I like our team," Ainge said. "I like the mix when we're all healthy. It's also very difficult to make any trades because the contracts that could make some significant noise are the contracts of our big four. And then the guys on our bench like Perk or [Glen Davis], we certainly don't want to move any of those guys to make and of those trades. So I like our team and I think this is probably the team that we'll be with by the time the season ends." 

 

Getting West back will be a key addition for the Celtics because of his...

Cromartie to Hasselbeck: I'll smash your face

A Twitter war has developed between Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie.

 

Earlier in the week Cromartie made comments that were critical of the NFL Players Union, telling the New York Daily News that the "head union rep is acting like an [expletive]." 

 

On Thursday morning, Hasselbeck posted a Tweet asking if Cromartie "knows what CBA stands for." Hasselbeck later deleted the Tweet, but Cromartie responded on Twitter, writing, "Hey Matt if u have something to then say it be a man about it. Don’t erase it. I will smash ur face in."

Cashman: Don't win championships in winter

Speaking at Foley's New York in midtown Manhattan Wednesday night, Yankees' general manager Brian Cashman defused both talk of Derek Jeter possibly going to center field -- which he suggested might be the case at some point in the shortstop's career, last week -- along with any panic Yankees fans might have regarding their roster compared to the Red Sox.

 

"[The Red Sox] might be a finished product, where we're an unfinished product. But you don't win championships in the winter," Cashman said. "The season hasn't started yet."

 

Cashman said that while he hasn't talked directly to Jeter, he has been in communication with the veteran's agent, Casey Close, explaining that nothing should be made of the comments and that the GM was simply trying to portray how athletic Jeter was.

 

 

"I did talk to Casey Close," Cashman said. "He asked, 'Hey, what's going on?'...
