Celtics get deep-Sixed in Philadelphia

For the second game in a row the Celtics were shorthanded with just 10 available players, and for the second game in a row they came up short in a close game down the stretch, losing 89-86 in Philadelphia. Unlike their loss to the Clippers earlier this week, the margin against Philadelphia was in single-digits, but the Celtics still trailed for most of the game. They were finally able to get a lead briefly in the fourth quarter, but it was short-lived.


The Celtics trailed 87-84 with 30 seconds left, but Andre Iguodala drove on Sasha Pavlovic and scored with 12.5 seconds left. Pavlovic was in for defense as Paul Pierce had five fouls at the time. It was a decent night offensively for some of the new players as Jeff Green led all Celtics with 18 points and Nenad Krstic added 16 points and 15 rebounds. But Kevin Garnett had another rough shooting night (5-for-13) and Ray Allen missed nine of his 11 shots and didn't score in the first three...

NFL issues statement on talks

Shortly after the National Football League Players Association announced Friday afternoon it has decertified, the NFL issued the following statement:

“The fastest way to a fair agreement is for both the union and the clubs to continue the mediation process.  Unfortunately, the players’ union has notified our office that at 4pm ET it had “decertified” and is walking away from mediation and collective bargaining, presumably to initiate the antitrust litigation it has been threatening to file. In an effort to get a fair agreement now, the clubs offered a deal that would have had no adverse financial impact upon veteran players in the early years and would meet the players’ financial demands in the latter years.

“The union left a very good deal on the table. It included an offer to narrow the player compensation gap that existed in the negotiations by splitting the difference; guarantee reallocation...

Talks break off, NFLPA officially decertifies

Apparently unable to reach an agreement on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement, the players and owners walked away from the negotiating table on Friday, and shortly after 5 p.m., the NFLPA announced that it has decertified with the following statement:

“WASHINGTON, D.C. – The NFL Players Association announced today it has informed the NFL, NFL clubs and other necessary parties that it has renounced its status as the exclusive collective bargaining representative of the players of the National Football League.

“The NFLPA will move forward as a professional trade association with the mission of supporting the interests and rights of current and former professional football players.”

Decertification now allows the players to file suit against the owners for restricting trade. (Disbanding the union is necessary because a union is not allowed to sue a party with which it is collectively bargaining...

Lee: Sox moves made Yanks third choice

Appearing on WIP in Philadelphia, Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee said the Yankees were "probably" his third choice, after Philly and the Rangers. Part of his reasoning, he said, was because of a combination of New York getting older and the Red Sox' improvement in the offseason.


“Texas probably finished second to be honest with you," said Lee, who signed a deal worth five years, $120 million with the Phillies in the offseason. "Just as far as the quality of the team and the chance to win a World Series ring, I think they’re a better team. That’s just my opinion. The Yankees can do anything at any moment to improve and they’re not afraid to go do things. That was part of the decision making process too, but I felt like with what the Red Sox had done and it seems...

NFLPA chief: Open the books

With the players and owners facing a Friday deadline to come up with a new Collective Bargaining Agreement, NFLPA chief DeMaurice Smith met with the media in Washington, D.C. on Friday afternoon and issued the following statement:

“We met with the owners until about 4 o'clock today. We discussed a proposal that they had presented. At this time, significant differences continue to remain. We informed the owners that significant difference remained, that if there was going to be a request for an extension, that was asked for 10 years of audited financial records to accompany any extension. We told them to please let us know by 5 p.m. today. We're going to head back to the office, and I'm sure we'll have a further comment later on.”
