Kendrick Perkins said he wasn't looking forward to his return to the Garden to play the Celtics. Perkins doesn't have animosity toward the team and in fact still talks with many of the players and coach Doc Rivers regularly.
"In a way I’ve been dreading it," Perkins said after Oklahoma City went through shootaround Monday. "After I got traded for some reason it wasn’t like I had bad thoughts for them. I didn’t want them to struggle. I was still cheering them on, watching them on TV. If they did something good I was texting all the guys and if they did something bad I was texting them like, 'What are y’all doing?' I was still pulling for them and I found that strange. It’s just the love that I have for the whole organization, I’m talking from the training staff on down."
His new teammates have been giving him a hard time about calling out screens for Rajon Rondo or setting them for Ray Allen,...
Keyon Dooling (knee) and Chris Wilcox (hamstring) are both out for the Celtics in their game against the Thunder on Monday and they may not be ready for Wednesday's game against Toronto. This is the third game that Dooling has missed, but he said that he's feeling better than he has recently. Neither player wanted to put a timetable on a return.
"I’ll be back ready to play whenever I’m healthy," said Wilcox who is out for the second straight game. "I don’t really have a date on it right now, just whenever I feel like I’m healthy, back to 100 percent, that’s when I’m going."
While they are out of the lineup, expect to see more of rookies E'Twaun Moore and possibly JaJuan Johnson, as well. Celtics coach Doc Rivers said that Moore has earned some time and he's been impressed with Johnson's approach.
"He’s done everything required. Both of those Purdue guys, I don’t...

CBS Sports NFL analyst Boomer Esiason, speaking with Dennis & Callahan Monday morning, said he foresees the Patriots beating the Ravens on Sunday in the AFC championship game. Esiason said Tom Brady has a renewed intensity and will lead New England back to the Super Bowl.
"He didn't have a great game against Baltimore in the playoffs a couple of years back. He did not have a great game last year against the New York Jets in the playoffs. But this is a different Tom Brady," Esiason said. "And I've been using this kind of theme over the last month or so, about how Tom said last year after the Jet loss [that] it was the worst loss of his career. And I think it's fueled a very competitive Tom Brady.
"[Chad] Ochocinco made mention of that last week in some interview -- I forget where it was -- that he has never seen a quarterback so intense in practice. Well, I extrapolate that as saying here's a guy that is extremely -- I mean,...
According to an article by Kent Babb of The Kansas City Star, former Chiefs coach Todd Haley was convinced that team management had bugged rooms and phones in an attempt to monitor employees' conversations, and he wasn't the only one with paranoid thoughts. Since Scott Pioli was hired as general manager in January 2009 (away from the Patriots), the article states, "life for many inside the Chiefs' front office has been marked by massive staff turnover, fear and insecurity about how closely they are watched." There are also charges of age discrimination. Three former department head sued the Chiefs in 2011.
According to a former high-ranking staffer: “The level of paranoia was probably the highest that I had ever seen it anywhere. … If you make the wrong step, you might not be able to pay your mortgage.”
Team chairman and CEO Clark Hunt played down the accusations, saying that an emphasis has been placed on individual...
