Ainge on M&M: 'Rondo's our best player'
By: DJ Bean

Celtics' president of basketball operations Danny Ainge joined Mut & Merloni at the team's Shamrock Classic golf tournament on Tuesday to discuss what the upcoming season will hold for a team that came a game away from the NBA Finals.  

The C's lost Ray Allen as a free agent to the Heat this summer and added the likes of Jason Terry, Jared Sullinger and Fab Melo. While the roster has undergone some changes, Ainge noted that one of the bigger differences from seasons past is that Rajon Rondo, entering his seventh season in the league, stands alone as the team's best player. 

"What you saw in the playoffs is what we've known for a little while about Rajon, is Rajon -- a lot of people will say Rajon's had success because he's had there superstars and Hall-of-Famers playing with him -- and what we saw in the playoffs is that Rajon's the best player on the team. Even the game that Paul fouls out, Rajon goes and scores nine straight...

Brady: Refs 'doing best they can'

Tom Brady was a guest of the Dennis & Callahan show on Tuesday. Brady was asked for his thoughts on Sunday's 31-30 loss to the Ravens, a loss that dropped the Patriots to 1-2 on the season, the first time the franchise has been under .500 since 2003.

"It's a bit frustrating to come up on the losing end," Brady said. "To have a nine-point lead with half a quarter left, to think that we would lose that game would certainly not be the outcome that we would have thought, liked or hoped for. But that's the situation we're in, and we have to start figuring out how to do better so we can start winning these close games."

A huge story in the game was the replacement officials, who struggled throughout the contest to keep control of the players and with several key calls on the field. With the blown interception call at the conclusion of Monday night's Green Bay-Seattle game -- costing the Packers a victory -- the officials...

Jason Terry: 'My mission is to kill'

BOLTON -- New Celtics guard wasted no time ingratiating himself to his new hometown when he was asked about the prospect of starting or coming off the bench.

"My mission is to kill," Terry said. "Whoever that is, whether it’s the Heat, whether it’s the Lakers. Hopefully both. That’s my mission and that’d what I’m here to do." 

The former Sixth Man of the Year indicated that he would have no problem coming off the bench and that seems the way coach Doc Rivers is leaning. "I’m pretty sure," Rivers said. "I think I know, but you get in the gym and guys change your mind." 

"We have tons of talent," Terry said. "It’s just a matter of Doc putting it all together and us buying into our roles. He hasn’t told me specifically what my role is, but whatever that is, I’m going to go out there and play it to the fullest."

NFL releases statement on GB-Sea finish

The league has issued a statement in the wake of the wild finish of Monday night's contest between the Packers and Seahawks:

"In Monday’s game between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks, Seattle faced a 4th-and-10 from the Green Bay 24 with eight seconds remaining in the game.

"Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson threw a pass into the end zone.  Several players, including Seattle wide receiver Golden Tate and Green Bay safety M.D. Jennings, jumped into the air in an attempt to catch the ball.

"While the ball is in the air, Tate can be seen shoving Green Bay cornerback Sam Shields to the ground.  This should have been a penalty for offensive pass interference, which would have ended the game.  It was not called and is not reviewable in instant replay.

"When the players hit the ground in the end zone, the officials determined that both Tate and...

Ainge: C's not looking for another guard

BOLTON -- Keyon Dooling's retirement may have caught many off guard, but the Celtics had a decent idea that he was leaning in that direction. Dooling's absence opens the door for one or more of their young players to make the roster during training camp and team president Danny Ainge said the team isn't looking to bring in another veteran.  

"We probably won’t bring anyone else in," Ainge said. "We like our young guys. We like Kris Joseph and Dionte Christmas and Jamar Smith and they’ll be competing for that last spot."

All three players will arrive for training camp on non-guaranteed deals. Joseph, a second-round pick out of Syracuse, is signed to a two-year deal with neither year guaranteed. Christimas, who opened eyes with his play in summer league, has half his deal guaranteed and may have a leg up on the competition entering camp. Smith is the only pure guard of the bunch and his chances shouldn't be...
