Bradley finishes 8th for Most Improved

After a regualar season in which he replaced Hall of Fame-bound shooting guard Ray Allen in the starting lineup, Celtics sophomore Avery Bradley finished eighth in the NBA's Most Improved Player voting with 36 points -- 224 fewer than the Magic's Ryan Anderson in first.

In addition to emerging as one of the best defenders in the league, Bradley averaged 7.6 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 21.4 minutes over 64 games this season, but he averaged 10.4 points after the All-Star break in addition to recording averages of 15.1 points, 2.6 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.2 steals in 32.9 minutes over 15 games in April. Bradley couldn't crack the rotation as a rookie, averaging just 1.7 points in 5.2 minutes over 31 games last season.

Here's how the voting played out (5 points for 1st place, 3 points for 2nd place and 1 point for 3rd place):

Ryan Anderson (ORL): 260 points (33 1st, 27 2nd, 14 3rd)
Ersan Ilyasova (MIL): 159 points (21 1st,...

Matt Light to announce retirement Monday

The Patriots will host a press conference on Monday to announce formally the retirement of Matt Light after 11 years as an anchor of New England's offensive line. Light was named to the Pro Bowl three times and appeared in 175 games, starting 173 of them at left tackle. After the Patriots took him in the second round of the 2001 draft, the 33-year-old went on to play in five Super Bowls and six AFC Championship games.

Sox VP Kennedy on M&M: Sellout streak legit

Red Sox executive vice president/chief operating officer Sam Kennedy joined the Mut & Merloni show Friday morning to talk about the Red Sox' sellout streak. The Red Sox say they have sold out every game since May 15, 2003, a run of 723 consecutive games. However, a Boston Globe story Friday questioned the validity of the streak, noting that seats are being sold or given away well after games start and a Fenway ticket-seller confirmed after a game this week that tickets remained when the final booth was closed.

"We've been screaming from the mountaintops for the last seven or eight years that we have tickets for sale for every game at Fenway, and they're available on a day-game purchase at Gate E," Kennedy said. "It's kind of ironic, this story this morning is sort of as predictable as the cold and rainy weather in Boston. When the team's not playing so well, I understand that we'll come under attack."

Kennedy explained that...

Oil Can on D&C: Boggs, Sox were bigoted

Former Red Sox pitcher Oil Can Boyd joined Dennis & Callahan for a bizarre interview Friday morning to talk about his forthcoming autobiography and his admission that he regularly used drugs during his memorable 1986 season. Before angrily hanging up on the hosts after being warned not to swear so much, Boyd told D&C he still smokes marijuana daily, accused Hall of Famer Wade Boggs of being a bigot who regularly used the n-word when they were teammates in Boston, and claimed that he performed at less than half of capability and would be in the Hall of Fame had he taken better care of his body.

Boyd, whose book is "They call me Oil Can: Baseball, drugs and life on the edge," said he was raised in a household in Mississippi where alcohol abuse was prevalent, and he had no way to escape it.

"I experienced drinking when I was small because I had parents that drank. I had uncles that drank, grandparents that drank, uncles and...
