Celtics forward Kevin Garnett joined the Dale & Holley show Thursday morning to talk about his resurgence this season. Garnett has returned to form after struggling for much of last season following knee surgery in May 2009.
"Rest is everything," Garnett said. "And being healthy is another thing. I don't like speaking about my own personal health, because everybody in the league has something they're dealing with, and I was no different from it. Obviously, you can see the difference in the play. I have a little pep in my step, I've got a little bounce in my hop. And it feels good.
"A lot of times last year I was playing subpar guys, man, and they were getting by me, doing different things to where I knew that if I was 100 percent, no way that some of those things were happening. To be honest, I'm blessed. It's something I have to deal with every day. But you can see the difference. You can see the...
Talking during his weekly radio appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show, Celtics coach Doc Rivers said that center Jermaine O'Neal will be able to offer some value to the team after taking time to rest and rehab his injured knee.
"I'm not as concerned as I was before," Rivers said of O'Neal. "I think he has a really good chance of getting healthy now that he's taking a break. He's going to take a break. I do think he'll be able to give us something. The key for us and the key for him is to get healthy where he doesn't have to play three games and have to go out. So I think what we're doing right now is the right thing.
"With Jermaine, he needed this. His knee was hurting a little bit from training camp and it continued to hurt. The doctors looked at it and he needed a little rehab, he needed a lot of rest, and we're going to give him both."
Rivers said that his goal was...
Indianapolis Star columnist Bob Kravitz checked in with the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning to preview Sunday's game between the Patriots and Colts. Kravitz said Colts fans are resigned to the fact that their injury-depleted team, despite being 6-3 and leading the AFC South, faces a difficult challenge in Foxboro.
"I think there's a feeling, especially around here, that this team is just trying to hold on for dear life until guys come back and are healthy," Kravitz said. "I think people around here are sort of ready to take their lumps against New England and just hope they can hang on long enough to get some guys back and make a run at the playoffs."
Kravitz said it wouldn't be fair to assign blame to Peyton Manning for any offensive struggles, as the veteran quarterback can't do it all by himself. "I think he's been as good as he's ever been for the most part," Kravitz said....
The Jets are 5-0 on the road but just 2-2 at home. Rex Ryan hopes to change that trend, starting with Sunday's game vs. the Texans, and he's asking for the fans' help. The Jets coach on Wednesday said he wants his team to get off to a fast start, and the crowd can help by ending the tailgating early enough to be seated in the stadium before kickoff. "I’m just asking that we start tailgating earlier so by the time the introductions come out, we’ve got a butt in every seat," he said.
Added Ryan: "I’m challenging our fans. I’m challenging everybody, myself included, to start fast," he said. "Let [the Texans] know we’re here. Our team is going to let Houston know that we’re here and our fans will also.
“The last time we played Houston [last season’s opener in Texas], they had a ‘white out.’ Everybody was wearing white. I’m not calling...
The Red Sox spent much of 2010 having to explain what GM Theo Epstein meant when he described the season as a "bridge year." On Wednesday, team chairman Tom Werner, during an interview on The Big Show, wanted to make clear that 2011 will not be treated as a bridge but instead as a goal and destination.
Werner, who is in Orlando at the owners' meetings, said that the Sox are committed to a goal of winning the World Series in 2011. He anticipates that the team will sign "a significant free agent" and "make a trade to improve ourselves" with that target in mind.
"I want to assure everyone that there is no bridge year here this year. In 2011, we’re committed to win," said Werner. "I think Theo would have been the first to say that he was excited about the prospects we had coming up through our system. I think he made a very rare mistake saying that. After that, we...
