Ainge: 'I still worry' about West

Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge made his weekly appearance on The Big Show Thursday. Ainge was first asked about Greg Oden, who will will undergo microfracture surgery on his left knee Friday and miss the rest of the season. Oden -- the first pick of the 2007 NBA Draft -- has played in just 82 regular-season games in his career. Many thought that the Celtics would have selected Oden if they had landed the top pick in the 2007 draft lottery.

 

"I have never spent much time [thinking about Oden]," said Ainge, "I have spent time watching Kevin Durant play the last couple of years, wondering what would have been, because he's such a special player. But not much time, no. We're very grateful for how it all turned out."

 

Ainge was asked if, in fact, the Celtics had secured the top pick of that 2007 draft would they have picked Oden or Durant.

Van Gundy: Rondo 'making Celtics great'

Jeff Van Gundy, who provides analysis for NBA games on ESPN and ABC, joined The Big Show Thursday to talk about the early-season struggles of the Miami Heat. It was Van Gundy in August who claimed that the Heat would have "a great chance" to break the 1996 Chicago Bulls record of 72 wins in a season. With the Heat at 7-4, Van Gundy is willing to reconsider his offseason prediction.

 

"Well, I'm gonna downscale my prediction due to the Mike Miller injury and some unforeseen losses, and I'm going to put them in the mid-60s [for wins] now," said Van Gundy. "I do believe Miami is going to figure it out, play better and better as the year goes on. Nothing troubles me like their statements. You had LeBron James come out a couple of games back and say 'I played too much.' I never, ever heard a great player say 'I played too much.' And Bosh after this great game last night, he says 'The coach wants us to work and we want to...

Hernandez wins AL Cy Young

Felix Hernandez was named the winner of the American League Cy Young Award on Wednesday, receiving 21-of-28 first place votes to easily outdistance runner-up David Price of Tampa Bay.

 

Hernandez won just 13 games for the Mariners in 2010 -- the lowest total ever recorded by a Cy Young winner in either league for starting pitchers in a full season -- but he led the AL with a 2.27 ERA in his 34 starts. He also paced the league in innings pitched (249.2) and his 232 strikeouts trailed only Jered Weaver's 233.

 

Yankees ace CC Sabathia was third in the voting, with Jon Lester finishing fourth. Lester's became the first left-handed Red Sox pitcher since 1989 (Bruce Hurst) to land a top-five finish in Cy Young voting.
