Sullinger on M&M: 'I'm just ready to play'

Jared Sullinger joined the Mut & Merloni show Monday, four days after being selected by the Celtics with the 21st pick in the first round of the NBA draft, and said he's looking forward to living his dream of playing in the NBA.

Sullinger, who wore No. 51 in college, will wear No. 7 ("My mom's birthday month") with the Celtics.

The former Ohio State standout was regarded as a lottery pick until reports came out that he had some back issues that could be degenerative.

"Medical school is over," he said. "I [couldn't] care less what people say. I know how I'm feeling. I'm feeling great. I'm just ready to play."

Sullinger insisted he played with "no pain" his last couple of seasons with the Buckeyes, but that didn't stop prospective teams from pressing him about his back.

"Everybody was asking me about it," he said. "But I laughed it off, because if you looked at me in...

Ainge: 'We intend to have Jeff [Green] back'

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge, speaking at a Monday morning press conference to introduce the team's draft picks, voiced confidence that the C's will re-sign free agent forward Jeff Green.

"Nothing is done, but we intend to have Jeff back," Ainge said.

Ainge later sounded even more confident that a deal would be done by the July 11 deadline, saying: "We're going to enter a contract with him, hopefully by the end of the moratorium."

Green, acquired in the trade that sent Kendrick Perkins to the Thunder during the 2010-11 season, missed all of last season after he was diagnosed with a heart condition that required surgery. Green's agent, David Falk, praised Ainge's handling of the situation.

Green, the fifth overall pick in the 2007 draft out of Georgetown, is averaging 13.9 points and 5.5 rebounds in 33.6 minutes over four NBA seasons. In 26 games with the Celtics at the end of the 2010...

Remaining Patriots tickets on sale July 17

The Patriots announced Monday that individual game tickets for the 2012 season will go on sale July 17. All tickets will be available through Ticketmaster, starting at 10 a.m., and can only be purchased with a Visa credit card (Visa is an NFL sponsor). No tickets will be sold at the Gillette Stadium ticket office.

The team sets aside a limited amount of tickets for sale to fans who don't want to purchase a season package, and all available tickets have sold out within minutes for the past few years. The Patriots have sold out the entire home schedule prior to the start of the season for the past 18 years, and they have a consecutive sellout streak of 193 games -- including preseason, regular season and postseason -- dating back to Sept. 4, 1994, Robert Kraft's first year as team owner.

The Patriots' first regular-season home game is Sept. 16 against the Cardinals. For the full Patriots schedule,...

Mashup: Torre says Clemens belongs in Hall

Former Yankees manager Joe Torre, at Yankee Stadium on Sunday for Old-Timers' Day, said he thinks Roger Clemens belongs in the Hall of Fame despite his alleged steroid use.

"He is [deserving] to me," Torre said. "I can't make other people look at him, I can just tell you the way I feel about him. I was proud to have him play for me and I respect him."

Added Torre: "I'm a little prejudiced on Clemens. He was like a son to me. Unfortunately, the question is always going to be there with him. It's something that's sad for me … because I disliked him like everyone else until I got a chance to know him. He was a great teammate for these guys and he was very devoted to the team was playing on, and I always respected that."
