Mashup: Youkilis to marry Brady's sister?

According to the Boston Herald, Red Sox third baseman Kevin Youkilis recently got engaged to Tom Brady's sister Julie, a California schoolteacher who has a 5-year-old daughter.

The Inside Track report indicates that Youkilis, who married Enza Sambataro in Mexico in 2008 but reportedly parted ways in 2010, was with the Bradys in Indianapolis for the Super Bowl. Although, it should be noted that the Herald gossip columnists reported in October that Youkilis was spending time with a different Brady sister, Nancy (a story that was soon removed from the paper's website).

Read more about that story and others, plus check out videos, trivia and more, at Friday's Morning Mashup.

Kobe on Celtics: 'I like all of them personally'

BOSTON -- At the ripe old age of 33, Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant seems to be softening on his archrival Celtics. Once disregarding the rivalry during the 2008 and 2010 NBA finals, he's grown to respect his fellow members of the NBA veterans club.

"It's been a dream come true growing up and watching it," Bryant said of the rivalry after his Lakers beat the Celtics in overtime, 88-87. "Here I am part of it. It's great. The only difference between us and the '80s is that guys over there in the other locker room I actually know and like. That's the big difference between this time around and the '80s."

Bryant finished with 25 points on 11-of-24 shooting to go along with five rebounds and four assists.

"It's always a brawl in every fight," he said. "It's ugly. It's physical. I've enjoyed competing agianst them. I like all of them personally. On the court, that personal stuff goes out the window. It's been fun....

Kobe to Gronk: 'The Eagles need a tight end'

When he wasn't battling with Ray Allen or busy putting up a game-high 27 points, Kobe Bryant found time to have a lively court conversation with Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski during Thursday's 88-87 Lakers win over the Celtics at TD Garden. Gronkowski was courtside next to the TNT broadcast table while several more Patriots were courtside or just a few rows back taking in the game between the two NBA rivals. 

"I told him the Eagles need a tight end," joked Bryant, who grew up in Philadelphia and remains an Eagles fan. "I'm recruiting. He's a freak athlete. He shouted at me and I shouted back. It's fun to have those conversations with athletes you respect."

Bryant took a picture with Gronkowski after the game on the court, and another with Patriots linebacker Brandon Spikes, who is a huge Lakers fan. Spikes changed his Twitter avatar picture from a picture of Bryant's jersey to his picture with him immediately after...

Garnett: 'Lord knows I've had enough'

 

Kevin Garnett wasn't too broken up about not making the All-Star team for only the third time in his career, and the first since the 1998-99 season when he was injured.

"Not at all. The All-Star Game is for the privileged. It’s good to see new guys," Garnett said. "All the first-timers I’m always proud for them to get the opportunity to go and experience the All-Star festivities. Lord knows I’ve had enough. So, I get to take me a little vacation and see what that’s like and actually rest...

Doc: 'I thought this was an awful game'

A dejected Doc Rivers pulled no punches when asked what he thought of his team's offensive execution and rebounding performance Thursday night in an 88-87 loss to the Lakers at TD Garden. 

"I thought our execution the whole game was terrible," Rivers said. "I thought this was an awful game, except for they won. If we had won it, it would've been an awful game that we had won. That's how I felt. So, just thought our execution was off all night."

Not only did the Celtics make just 38-of-97 shots, they were outrebounded 55-45, outscored in the paint, 24-13 and outscored in second-chance points, 46-38. 

"Give them some credit, some of it was defense," Rivers said. "I thought a lot of it was self-inflicted. We've been very good at just running the floor, ball movement, second and third options, second and third picks. Today, the ball just was not [moving]. It was no fun to watch."
