MacMullan named to Basketball Hall of Fame

Jackie MacMullan, shortly before making her weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Tuesday afternoon, learned that she was named as a recipient of the Curt Gowdy Media Award by the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield in recognition of her "significant contribution to the game of basketball." MacMullan, whose writing career was highlighted by stints with the Boston Globe and Sports Illustrated, will be inducted into the media wing of the Hall of Fame this summer along with longtime Cleveland Cavaliers radio broadcaster Joe Tait.

 

The highlight of the induction ceremonies Aug. 12-13 will be the recognition of the 1992 U.S. Olympic Dream Team. "This is just going to be so much fun, because those are the guys I covered," MacMullan told Dale & Holley. MacMullan also gave her opinion on the Celtics-Cavaliers series, which you can hear at the...

Spike Lee throws support behind Celtics

Diehard New York fan Spike Lee is throwing his support to the Celtics — but not without his own motivations. As Lee explained to ESPNNewYork.com, he has the Knicks’ best interest in mind when he roots for the C’s. He hopes that an Eastern Conference semifinals loss for the Cavaliers could sway James to leave Cleveland during free agency this summer.

 

"We need LeBron," Lee said. "I feel we have a better chance to get LeBron James if Cleveland loses this series to the Celtics. The quicker Cleveland loses, the better our chances are of getting LeBron."

Jon Barry on D&C: Rondo in elite company

Jon Barry, who serves as an NBA analyst on ESPN and ABC, joined the Dennis & Callahan show Tuesday morning to talk about the Celtics-Cavaliers series. Barry said Rajon Rondo's performance on Sunday cements his status as the maquee player on the C's, ahead of the Big Three. Said Barry: "He's quickly becoming the system, like Steve Nash in Phoenix. There's not a guy in the league who wouldn't say he wants to play with Steve Nash. Rondo's quickly becoming the guys who is mentioned in that same breath."

 

Barry said the Cavaliers continue to lean too heavily on LeBron James. "Their reliance on him to be superhuman is just too much," Barry said. "When he doesn't go crazy, they don't win. They've got enough talent that they should be better than this."

 

Barry suggested the Cavaliers should try inserting center Zydrunas Ilgauskas, who has taken a back seat to Shaquille O'Neal in the...

Welker: No timetable for return

Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker, who is recovering from ACL and MCL injuries to his left knee suffered in the regular-season finale in December, told The Oklahoman newspaper that he is battling to get back on the field but can't predict when he'll be able to return to action.

 

"It’s so early right now, it’s hard to put any sort of timetable on it," he said. "My main deal is just working hard and putting myself in the best position possible to be ready whenever I’m ready. No telling when that’s going to be or how long it’s going to take, but all I can do is just work hard."

 

Welker said he's trying to make sure he follows the prescribed guidelines so that his injuries are healed before he returns to the field.
