Thomsen on D&H: Magic 'need help' to win

Sports Illustrated's Ian Thomsen was a guest of Dale & Holley on Wednesday and discussed the Magic-Celtics series as well as Rajon Rondo -- the subject of his cover story in SI this week.

 

Rondo told Thomsen that "for what I do, I think I'm the best," a quote which appears in the SI story. Thomsen was asked if he agrees with Rondo's assessment of the point guard landscape in the NBA today.

 

"He's right up there," Thomsen said. "I still think Deron Williams is the best point guard in the NBA right now, and I think Rondo is right up there with him. When I think about the big shots that Deron Williams hits, he is all things to that team in Utah. And I don't think it's any denigration to Rondo to say that he's behind Deron Williams.

Francona on D&H: Drew, Victor questionable
By: DJ Bean

Red Sox manager Terry Francona touched on outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury's status, Wednesday's lineup and catcher Victor Martinez' availability in his weekly appearance on "Dale and Holley" on Wednesday.

 

Ellsbury, who was kept out of Tuesday night's lineup with soreness in his side, was X-rayed and given a CT scan during the game.

 

"Hopefully it just got tender and it's not something to worry about and we can give him a day and get him back in there," Francona said.

 

As for the choice to make Ellsbury the team's primary center fielder, outfielder Mike Cameron's health and the desire to create positional stability drove the decision. 

 

"It was more to kind of to create some consistency," Francona said. "The most (Cameron) has played is three days in a row.

 

"Trying to keep some consistency and and maybe make it a little...

Obama: Lakers to win title

In an interview that aired on Tuesday night, President Barack Obama told TNT that he thinks the Los Angeles Lakers will win the 2010 NBA Championship.

 

"I've got to go with the Lakers again," Obama told Marv Albert. "I think Gasol might be the best big man in the league right now. He's different from Dwight Howard, but he's [got] unbelievable footwork, speed, savvy, he's playing magnificently.

 

"Kobe is the fiercest competitor in the league and they've got what I continue to think is the best coach in the NBA right now in Phil Jackson, so they're going to be formidable and I think it'll be a tough series. Boston's a veteran club, but the Lakers are looking pretty good."

 

Of course both the Celtics and Lakers need to first get to the NBA Finals. The interview was aired prior to Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals, a 115-106 Suns win over the...
