Shaq: No fifth title would mean 'failure'

NEWPORT, R.I. -- Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal was asked after practice Wednesday about the prospect of winning a fifth NBA title with the Celtics in 2010-11.

 

"I have to get five for my sanity," said O'Neal, a three-time champion with the Lakers (2000-02) and a title winner with the Heat in 2006. "If I don't get five for my sanity I'll probably look at myself as a failure. I need five, I want to be up there with Jordan and Magic and Kareem and Kobe. I need to get five, and I definitely have to get five before the great Tim Duncan. Because that's who I'm competing against."

 

O'Neal was asked if winning a title with the Celtics -- the franchise with the most championship banners -- would mean more than the other four.

 

"I don't know about that, a win is a win," said the 15-time All-Star. "I'm just trying to be half the player of the great Bill Russell. I've got this...

Epstein on D&H: 'We're disappointed'

Red Sox general manager Theo Epstein joined the Dale & Holley show to offer his thoughts on the 2010 season.

 

"We're disappointed," Epstein said. "We're proud of the way the guys hung in there and played really hard to the end, but I'm disappointed that we're going to fall short of our goal every year to get to the postseason and do some damage in October."

 

Yet Epstein thinks that the Sox are not far away from returning to a championship-level club. "It adds up to an organization that's in really good position and not far away from a championship," Epstein said. "In fact we could very well win one next year and that's the goal."

 

Asked if he could identify one thing that went wrong, Epstein said, "It's always hard to identify one single factor. It definitely is multi-factorial. We felt like we had a really good team, a legitimate chance to be one of...

Taylor missing from start of Pats' practice

FOXBORO — Veteran running back Fred Taylor was among three who were absent for the start of Patriots practice Thursday afternoon. Taylor, who has been hobbled by a nagging toe injury, wasn't on the field for the portion of practice the media is allowed to watch.

In addition to Taylor, cornerback Terrence Wheatley and offensive lineman Nick Kaczur were also not present for the beginning of the session, which was held in shorts and shells on the upper fields behind Gillette Stadium.

Patriots add Clayton, drop Ojinnaka

FOXBORO — The Patriots have added running back Thomas Clayton to the 53-man roster and released offensive lineman Quinn Ojinnaka.

Clayton, 5-foot-11, 222 pounds, went to training camp with New England but was waived on Sept. 4. He signed to the Cleveland practice squad on Sept. 14. Clayton originally was drafted by the San Francisco 49ers in the sixth round of the 2007 Draft out of Kansas State. After spending all of 2007 on the San Francisco practice squad, Clayton spent the first 14 weeks of 2008 as part of that unit until being signed to the active roster for the final two games of the season. He spent the 2009 season on injured reserve after getting injured during the preseason.

Ojinnaka, 6-foot-5, 295 pounds, was acquired by New England in a trade with the Atlanta Falcons for undisclosed draft considerations on Aug. 23. He is a veteran of four NFL seasons after originally joining Atlanta as a fifth-round draft pick out...
