Former Celtic Antoine Walker pleaded guilty to writing bad checks to cover a Las Vegas casino debt, but will likely escape jail time according to the Las Vegas Sun. Walker changed his plea from not guilty through his attorneys and will instead face probation and be forced to pay off a $750,000 gambling debt owed to three Las Vegas casinos.
The 34-year-old Walker is attempting a comeback and played last season with Idaho in the NBA's Development League. He last played in the NBA in 2008 and was a three-time All-Star with the Celtics.

Like his former teammate Willie McGinest, former Patriots cornerback Ty Law said he'd be interested in signing a one-day contract with New England and officially retiring as a member of the Patriots.
Speaking before The Tradition Tuesday night at the TD Garden, Law said he's "pretty much" retired at this point, but added that he'd like the "opportunity" to retire as a Patriot.
"That would be … that’s one of the reasons I haven’t officially turned my papers in because I would like to at least say the last contract I sign was with New England," Law said. "That would be an honor if I was able to do that, if Mr. Kraft was to bless me with something like that, that would be the icing on the...
PHILADELPHIA -- Cliff Lee was brilliant on Monday night, authoring his major-league best fourth shutout of the 2011 season (and his third straight) in a 5-0 Phillies win.
Lee didn't allow a hit until the sixth inning, when Marco Scutaro led off the frame with a single. The left-hander -- who has allowed just a single run in five June starts-- then got Josh Beckett to ground into a 6-4-3 double play before retiring Jacoby Ellsbury on a ground out to Ryan Howard.
Beckett was up-and-down in his first start since June 15, allowing five runs on five hits in six innings of work. A great deal of the damage done against Beckett -- now second in the AL with a 2.20 ERA -- came courtesy of Domonic Brown, who blasted a two-run homer in the second inning and doubled and scored in the fifth inning. Shane Victorino would add a two-run homer of his own in the sixth inning. The five earned runs allowed by Beckett were a season high.
Although no one was...
Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty has been very clear about his unhappiness with the league's decision not to suspend Zdeno Chara for the March 8 hit that ended the rookie's season, but he's also been emphatic about it not going any farther.
In wake of Tuesday's news that Montreal police still intend to question Chara for a criminal investigation, Pacioretty -- who has gotten in trouble on twitter before -- took to the social networking service to make it clear that he does not want Chara to be face any sort of criminal charges.
Tweeted Pacioretty: "Last comment on this: I hope Chara is NOT prosecuted. I have moved on from my incident and I hope everyone else can do the same."
He followed that tweet by adding, "All I am focused on is getting ready for next season, and will no longer comment on the past."

In the latest vote tally, Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury has moved within reach of Josh Hamilton for the third and final starting spot on the American League All-Star team. With voting still open on MLB.com until the end of the day on June 30, Ellsbury now has approximately 3.05 million votes, roughly 120,000 votes behind Hamilton.
