A day after Randy Moss’ agent e-mailed a statement saying the two had decided to part ways and that the veteran wide receiver was going to serve as his own agent from now on, Moss told The Boston Herald he is actively seeking new representation in an attempt to go after what he called more “off-the-field money.”
“I really wasn’t into commercials, because I wanted to concentrate on one objective, being a better football player year-in and year-out,” Moss said. “Now, late in my career, I’m still thinking I have some marketing opportunities out there. I need an agent or agency that’s going to get out there and find those business deals off the field.”
Moss, who is entering the final year of a three-year deal he signed with the Patriots following the 2007 season, also explained his approach to the upcoming season.
“I wanted to let fans know, this is my year,...
WALTHAM -- Whether he wins another title or not, Paul Pierce believes he is playing for one of the best coaches of his generation. Pierce said Monday following practice that Doc Rivers deserves credit for keeping the team focused on the task at hand and never showing panic through the course of a long season filled with many ups and downs.
"He's definitely taken my career to the next level," Pierce said. "You have to put him up there with the top-five coaches with Phil, Gregg Popovich."
Phil Jackson has an NBA-record 10 titles as head coach while Gregg Popovich is second among active coaches with four. The Celtics are making their second trip to the NBA Finals in three years with Rivers as the coach and he is trying to join Red Auerbach, Bill Russell and K.C. Jones as Celtics coaches with two titles in three seasons.

WALTHAM -- Celtics captain Paul Pierce made no secret of how desperately he wants to win another NBA championship before leaving for Los Angeles Monday afternoon for the start of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.
"It means everything," Pierce said following practice. "It will probably solidify what I've done in my career in Boston. Hopefully, it can move me up the ranks as one of the top Celtics players of all time and maybe NBA history, if we win another title."
The Celtics will practice on Tuesday at UCLA in Westwood, Calif., with Game 1 set for Thursday night at Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Rajon Rondo and Rasheed Wallace were both limited at Celtics practice on Monday. Rondo missed most of the first half during game 6 of the Eastern Conference Finals after falling hard on his back and hip while driving to the basket in the first quarter. "Rondo felt pretty good, he went 75-80 percent of practice, "said head coach Doc Rivers.
Rasheed Wallace experienced back spasms during game 5 and left in the fourth quarter of game 6 after his back condition worsened. Doc Rivers acknowledged he had some concern about Wallace, "Rasheed is not right yet, he did the skeleton offense stuff, but other than that, we didn't allow any contact. So if we have a concern right now with anybody, Wallace would be the only one."

Although he holds a 1-0 head-to-head edge in the NBA Finals, Doc Rivers on Monday had nothing but praise for Lakers coach Phil Jackson. This is Jackson's 13th trip to the finals, and he has won 10 championships.
"Like I've always said, I don't even look at that factor," Rivers said when asked to evaluate the coaching matchup in the series. "If you're comparing me to Phil, we're in trouble. He's got 10 rings, I got one. I think, obviously, if you go by his record he's the best coach to ever coach the game. I'm not going to challenge that. I told our players they have to be better than me with Phil. For sure."
