Perk: 'My spot is not up for grabs'

Kendrick Perkins will not be the Celtics starting center when the season opens, but the big man made it clear Monday at the team's media day that he still considers the job to be his. "My spot is not up for grabs," said Perkins who is recovering from knee surgery. Until he returns, Jermaine O'Neal is penciled in as the starting center, but Perkins made it clear that he expects to return to that role when he comes back.

 

Perkins said he's ahead of schedule in his rehab, but what that means is still a little unclear. The Celtics aren't putting a timeframe on it yet, but the prevailing thought is that it could be sometime around the All-Star break.

Shaq to Kobe: Yeah, I heard you

WALTHAM -- Shaquille O'Neal used Celtics media day to throw a salvo back at Kobe Bryant. 

 

Asked if he heard Bryant bragging about having one more ring than him in the moments immediately after Game 7 in June, O'Neal made his feelings very clear. 

 

"Yeah I heard it," O'Neal said. "My whole career I've been the measuring stick. Glad to see I'm still relevant. I would've been more upset, more hurt, if Tim Duncan would've made the comment. I don't compete with guards. They have the ball more than I do, they shoot way more than I do. You can't compete with guard. I'm only competing w/Tim Duncan so hopefully I can get No. 5 before Tim Duncan, respectfully before Tim Duncan." 

 

San Antonio's Tim Duncan and O'Neal each have four NBA championship rings while Bryant and Derek Fisher lead active players with five.

Wilfork on D&H: 'We kept our poise'

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork joined the Dale & Holley show Monday for his weekly update on the team. Wilfork was pleased with Sunday's win over the Bills and the defense's focus on fixing its problems. "It's a positive step," he said. "I'm not saying everything's perfect, but it's a positive step. We have to keep building on it. As long as we keep doing that, and being aware of the situations, how a team wants to play us and wants to attack us when certain situations occur, we'll be in good shape. We'll be in good shape. But I'm very proud of the team, how we rallied and we kept our poise. We stayed even keel."

 

Wilfork said the team prepared well for Buffalo and that got the Patriots off on the right foot. "Everybody knew what it was about this week," he said. "It was about us coming out and executing, being aware of situations, and I think we were so confident because we knew that. In...

Meriweather: 'We stepped up' in clutch

Patriots defensive back Brandon Meriweather joined the Dale & Holley show Monday morning for his weekly Patriots Monday visit. Meriweather said that while the Patriots allowed 30 points to the Bills in Sunday's win, the defense came through when needed — as with his late fourth-quarter interception that sealed the victory. "When we had to get a play and we had to make a play, I feel like yes, we had some guys step up and make a play. ... We stepped up and had a lot of plays that needed to be made in crucial situations."

 

Asked why the Patriots have not lost to the Bills during Meriweather's tenure in New England, he said: "Great coaching. I think our coaches do a good job. Bill [Belichick] and the rest of the coaches get us ready for situational football, like what happened at the end of the game, and what happened at the end of the half. We go over situations like that all the time, and I think that was the...
