The Seahawks rallied from a 14-0 deficit for a 24-14 victory over the Redskins on Sunday, and loud-mouthed Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman continued his brash ways after the game ended. Sherman, who gave Patriots quarterback Tom Brady an earful following their game in Seattle on Oct. 14, didn't get away unscathed this time, as Washington lineman Trent Williams shoved his hand in Sherman's face and smacked him away.
According to Sherman, Williams initiated the confrontation. "He came up and tapped me, 'What's up now? I'll swing on you," Sherman told USA Today, saying that he responded: "Swing!"
Added Sherman: "He told me he was going to swing, and he swung. That's what he did, and that's that. He thought I was going to be scared. I'm not scared."
Sherman acknowledged that his chirping must be getting to opponents.
"I guess so," he said. "You know, the playoffs, everybody gets a...
A report from NBC on Sunday indicated the Celtics were pushing to complete a deal for controversial but talented Kings big man DeMarcus Cousins, but Danny Ainge's preference to include Courtney Lee instead of Avery Bradley was holding it up.
A note from the NBAonNBC Twitter feed read: Sources close to nbaonnbc.com confirm that Danny Ainge is working to complete a deal to bring Cousins to Boston, tonight.
However, a tweet from USA Today's Sam Amick later in the day shot down that rumor. Wrote Amick: DeMarcus Cousins is not going to the Celtics. Teams continue to be told that he's not available. That is all.

According to SI.com, former Red Sox manager Bobby Valentine has been hired to be a member of the NBC Sports Radio lineup as a Major League Baseball contributor.
The report states that Valentine will call in weekly to NBC Sports affiliated stations over the next two months before co-hosting his own daily sports talk show starting in April.
“I think in my years here on earth, I have let people know I have an opinion about pretty much everything,” Valentine told SI.com. “I think I will remain true to that.”
The former Sox’ skipper added, “I don’t know that you have to be negatively biased to inform people of what is going on, or to keep them listening. I think you have to be true. If I have a fault, it’s that I tell the truth. You can’t dictate to the customer what they want and I think a good host feels his audience and understands what they want and need and tries to provide...
Bruins forward Shawn Thornton said Sunday night that he felt the lockout could have been resolved much sooner were it not for some of the league's tactics. The Bruins' enforcer was quick to point out that the terms of the new collective bargaining agreement are very similar to the players' counter-offer to a take-it-or-leave-it proposal from the league in December, and that the league should have simply accepted it then.
"The settlement that we just made is almost identical to our counter-offer [in early December]," Thornton told WEEI.com. "It wasn't us waiting. It was a lot of theatrics and a lot of blowing up and the NHL locking us out for another month to basically give us what we have now. I wouldn't put that on the players."
While Thornton is glad that hockey is back, he said he's angry that the lockout lasted as long as it did. However, with the 113-day work stoppage in the rear-view mirror, he feels it's...
The Celtics announced that they have waived forwards Kris Joseph and Jarvis Varnado, moves that trimmed their roster to 13 players.
Varnado, 24, was signed by the Celtics out of the NBA D-League at the end of December. He appeared in five games, playing a total of 18 minutes in which he scored six points and grabbed three rebounds. The decision to waive him was not unexpected, given that it came just before his contract went from non-guaranteed to guaranteed.
Joseph, 24, was the Celtics' second-round pick out of Syracuse this year. In 24 minutes over six games, he scored six points with five rebounds. In 10 games with the Celtics' D-League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws, Joseph averaged 17.7 points, 5.3 boards and 1.7 assists per game.
