Mannix on D&C: C's still in hunt for Howard

Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix joined the Dennis & Callahan show Tuesday morning to discuss all things NBA. With the trade deadline approaching [March 15] and the Celtics at 15-12 and in the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference, it would seem Danny Ainge might be tempted to make a major move. But Mannix believes the Celtics might stick with the current roster for the rest of the season and wait until the summer to try and make a splash.

"I honestly think the Celtics believe they are not out of the running for a guy like Dwight Howard," Mannix said of the Orlando center, who is eligible for free agency after the season. "I know Boston believes they can't get him in a trade, but I really believe the Celtics think they can sell Dwight Howard on the city and on the team if he makes it to free agency. … And Boston, to be honest with you, they've got a pretty good pitch. They can tell him they have Rajon Rondo in...

Mashup: Boxer says Lin hype all about race

Boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. isn't quite as excited about Knicks phenom Jeremy Lin as everyone else. Despite Lin leading the shorthanded Knicks to five straight wins, including a 38-point effort against the Lakers that earned him the cover of Sports Illustrated, Mayweather insists Lin is getting preferential treatment because of his race.

On his Twitter page Monday, Mayweather wrote: Jeremy Lin is a good player but all the hype is because he's Asian. Black players do what he does every night and don't get the same praise.

Controversy is nothing new for Mayweather, who insulted rival Manny Pacquiao with racial and homophobic slurs in an online video two years ago.

Meanwhile, the stock price for The Madison Square Garden Co. reached an all-time high Monday, and Lin is being credited as a key reason for the success.

Boston College wins Beanpot in overtime

Bill Arnold's goal with 6.4 seconds left in overtime gave Boston College a 3-2 win over Boston University in the championship game of the Beanpot on Monday night at TD Garden. It's the third consecutive Beanpot title for the Eagles and BC's fourth straight win over the rival Terriers in the tournament.

Pat Mullane and Chris Kreider also scored goals for BC while Parker Milner made 32 saves. Garrett Noonan scored both BU goals and Kieran Millan made 44 saves.

It was the 17th Beanpot championship all-time for BC and marked the first time since 1983-85 that BU has gone three years without winning the title. Harvard beat Northeastern, 3-2, in the consolation game.

Sox, Cubs sent comp arguments to Selig

According to The Associated Press, the Red Sox and Cubs have both submitted written arguments to the MLB Commissioner's Office regarding the compensation that the Sox will receive for the departure of former GM Theo Epstein, who left Boston in October to become president of baseball operations of the Cubs. The matter is now up to Commissioner Bud Selig to decide.

The Red Sox have said on numerous occasions that there was an agreement with the Cubs that they would receive "significant" compensation for the departure of Epstein, whose resignation was accepted by the club in late-October. The Cubs, however, have cited the precedent of former Twins GM Andy MacPhail becoming president of the Cubs in the 1990s, when the compensation was a marginal Single-A prospect (Hector Trinidad) and money.

There is no timetable for Selig to resolve the matter, according to...
