Mannix on D&H: Hamilton deal unlikely

Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated joined the Dale & Holley show Wednesday morning to talk about the Celtics and the NBA.

 

There's a rumor going around that the Celtics are interested in Pistons shooting guard Richard Hamilton, but Mannix downplayed it.

 

"That's just a rumor," he said. "The only way they acquire him is by buyout. Right now, the ownership situation in Detroit is in such flux that that buyout, it ain't coming anytime soon. And I'd be really surprised if it came before March 1st."

 

Mannix acknowledged that "Hamilton would be a great asset in Boston" and "something has to happen" because Hamilton and coach John Kuester are at odds. However, Mannix said, "I just don't see him getting bought out right now. He's owed $25 million over the next two years. If he's not willing to take a significant pay cut from that — and I'm talking in the $...

Mashup: UConn booster takes heat for letter

UConn booster Robert Burton is coming under fire after the publication of his six-page letter to athletic director Jeff Hathaway detailed Burton's displeasure with the hiring of new football coach Paul Pasqualoni. Burton said he want a portion of the $7 million he has donated to UConn returned because his advice was not heeded (he wanted to hire Steve Addazio). Burton, who sent a copy of the letter to Connecticut Governor Dan Malloy, also threatened to pull business from the state.

 

Elsewhere, a dozen members of the University of Iowa football team were hospitalized a few days after an especially intense offseason workout. One of the players is freshman linebacker Shane DiBona of Duxbury, who wrote on Facebook last Thursday: I had to squat 240 pounds 100 times and it was timed. I can't walk and I fell down the stairs ... lifes great.
The school announced Tuesday that the players "were responding well to treatment."...

Baldelli retires, joins Rays front office

Rhode Island native Rocco Baldelli, whose major league career appeared headed for stardom before an unusual illness prevented the outfielder from being able to stay on the field consistently, told the St. Petersburg Times that he had decided to retire from baseball at the age of 29. Baldelli had spent the last few seasons with the Rays and Red Sox finding a way to play through channelopathy, a condition that left his body in a state of profound fatigue.

 

But after Game 1 of the 2010 American League Division Series between the Rays and Rangers, it became clear to Baldelli that he could no longer contribute as a result of the condition. Baldelli went 0-for-3 with a pair of strikeouts in that contest, and experienced significant cramping and pain afterwards. That led to his removal from the Rays'...

Pierce: Tweaked ankle will be 'fine'

After turning his ankle late in the first quarter on a layup, Paul Pierce left Tuesday night's blowout win against Cleveland with just over three minutes left to get some extra treatment. 

 

Pierce scored 17 of his game-high 24 points in the first quarter but then scored just seven points in the second and was scoreless in the second half as he played only 24 minutes before leaving for the locker room. Afterward, Pierce said he doesn't anticipate the injury to keep him from playing Thursday night in Portland as the Celtics open a four-game West Coast road trip. 

 

“I just tweaked it a little bit, that’s why I left to the trainers a little early and get a little treatment," Pierce said. "I don’t think it should be anything serious, I should be fine.”

 

Coach Doc Rivers joked that he didn't think Pierce's early departure was anything to worry about. "I...

Perk: 'It felt real good,' but 'I can do better'

Kendrick Perkins was the happiest person in the Garden on Tuesday night as he made a successful return to game action in 16 minutes of the Celtics' 112-95 romp over the Cavaliers. Perkins came in with 8:02 left in the first quarter to replace Semih Erden and played his first five minutes of the season. Perkins — who had reconstructive ACL surgery on his right knee — scored seven points and grabbed six rebounds in his first game since injuring the knee in Game 6 of the NBA finals last June. 

 

"I've got to play a few more games first. I surprised myself on a few plays today, just finishing, a couple of rebounds, it felt real good," he said. "I know I can do better, I could do more. I was mad at myself, I didn't block any shots today. I was a little winded and a little off-key. I'll get better."

 

Perkins also admitted he was very tired after the game since he didn't sleep on Monday...
