Shaq: Celtics 'best team I've been on'

After overpowering the Nets while scoring 25 and hauling in 11 rebounds, Celtics center Shaquille O'Neal -- who owns four NBA championship rings -- proclaimed the 2010-11 Celtcs to be "the best team I've been on."

 

“This is a great team. The best team I've been on," said O'Neal. "They've got a lot of weapons on this team, so on any given night anybody can be the leading scorer. The team's very unselfish. ... .”

 

O'Neal confirmed that assessment in response to a follow-up question when asked to compare the Celtics to his three championship Lakers teams and the 2006 Heat.

 

"Yes. Best team," O’Neal repeated. "As far as players….as far as guys being really close…I know we’ve only been at this for two months, but hopefully the outcome to be a good one."

Mashup: Van Gundy rips Lakers' Jackson

It might be Thanksgiving, but there are some sports people who don't seem to be in a holiday mood this week. Magic coach Stan Van Gundy came to the defense of his division rival, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, before Orlando beat Miami on Wednesday night. One day earlier, Lakers coach Phil Jackson said in a radio appearance that Spoelstra could eventually be replaced by Pat Riley if the Heat continued to struggle, making reference to when Riley replaced Van Gundy as Heat coach and led them to the 2006 championship.

 

Responded Van Gundy: "To second-guess another coach and comment on a situation he knows nothing about, I think, it's inappropriate and it's also ignorant."

 

Meanwhile, Boise State president Bob Kustra responded to derogatory comments from Ohio State president Gordon Gee on Wednesday. Gee had said Boise and TCU don't belong in the national championship game because of their schedules, saying: "We do...

Doc: Hope to see West in playoffs

After suffering a broken right wrist when he fell hard to the ground with 2:48 left in the second quarter Wednesday night, Delonte West is expected to miss the rest of the regular season, according to Celtics coach Doc Rivers. 

 

“It’s broken for sure," Rivers said following Boston's 89-83 win over New Jersey. "Don’t know anything else more than that, a compound fracture most likely. But that’s going to be a long time, let’s just put it that way.”

 

Asked if West might be ready in time for the playoffs in mid-April, Rivers sounded more hopeful than anything. “Playoffs," Rivers said. "Yeah. It’s tough, honestly."

 

In the meantime, Rivers said the team will have to survive with Nate Robinson, Marquis Daniels and Avery Bradley until Rajon Rondo gets back from a strained left hamstring. Rivers said Wednesday's injury to West...

Another comeback: B's beat Panthers
By: DJ Bean

Mark Recchi had a pair of goals and Tim Thomas picked up his 11th win on Wednesday in a 3-1 Bruins win over the Panthers in Florida. 

 

It was yet another game in which the B's had to fight back in the third period, as they entered the period trailing, 1-0, before they got a shorthanded tally from Brad Marchand and a pair of goals from Mark Recchi. With his two points, Recchi now has 1500 in his career, which is 13th all-time. 

 

The B's outshot the Panthers, 18-6 in the third period and have now played consecutive games in which they were behind entering the third period, a span in which they've gone 1-1-1. 

 

The Panthers got their lone goal from Steve Reinprecht in the second period on a play set up by former Bruin Dennis Wideman. Aside from that, Thomas was sound once again, stopping the other 31 shots he saw. Tomas Vokoun allowed three goals on 35 shots.
