Pierce on Twitter: 'I'm close'

Celtics captain Paul Pierce hinted that his return could come as soon as Friday night's home opener against the Pistons, tweeting on Thursday night, "I'm close very very close very."

Pierce has not played in any of the C's three games during their 0-3 start due to a heel injury suffered in training camp. Sasha Pavlovic has started in his place.

Belichick on Brady health: 'Play quarterback'

FOXBORO -- Patriots coach Bill Belichick was pressed several times at the beginning and end of his Friday news conference about the health of Tom Brady. He would not elaborate on his health and did not mentioned the injured left shoulder.

At the beginning, Belichick was asked what Brady was able to do on Thursday, after being given Wednesday off for "non injury related" issues.

"Play quarterback," Belichick answered. 

Pressed toward the end of the 16-minute session about the level of confidence Belichick and the staff have in Brady's ability to perform with an injured left shoulder, Belichick elaborated.

"Anybody we put out on the field, I have confidence in or we wouldn't put him out there," Belichick said. "So if they're out there, we have confidence in him. If they're not out there, there is either another player ahead of him or we're not confident they can go out there [healthy]. It's as...

Garnett to buy share in Italian soccer club

Celtics forward Kevin Garnett will become a limited shareholder in the Roma soccer club of Italy's Serie A, according to an Associated Press report. James Pallotta, a Celtics minority shareholder, bought the soccer team in August along with three other Boston executives and offered a share to Garnett.

Another Roma owner is Thomas DiBenedetto, who is a limited partner in Fenway Sports Group, owner of the Red Sox and the Liverpool soccer club in England. Fenway Sports Group sold a share of Liverpool to Heat star LeBron James earlier this year.

Mashup: Giants' Jacobs rips Cowboys fans

Giants running back Brandon Jacobs has directed his anger at Cowboys fans instead of players heading into Sunday's NFC East championship-deciding game.

"It's their fans," he said. "Some of their fans are loud, obnoxious and just bad. Just everywhere you go, you’ve got them Dallas fans running their mouth about Dallas. They keep going. It’s not really the team and the star and all that. They’re just like any other team in the National Football League if you ask me. But their fans are the ones that have me really just feeling the way I feel.”

Jacobs even ranks Cowboys fans as worse than the notoriously bad Philadelphia fans.

Yeah, they are [worse],” Jacobs said. “I’m not talking about being actually at the game and doing the type of stuff they do in Philly. I’m just talking about in everyday life. Cowboys fans get on my nerves.”

Report: Pats OC is head coaching prospect

Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien has emerged as a head coaching candidate, and is “expected to receive overtures to interview with teams,” according to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network.

LaCanfora reports that with O’Brien’s contract set to expire at the end of the season, he could be linked to the Chiefs as a possible “coach in waiting” as a part of a staff that would include Romeo Crennel as head coach. (The theory would be that O’Brien would eventually inherit the head coaching job when Crennel steps aside.) Former Patriots assistant Josh McDaniels has also been linked to a possible job as an offensive coordinator in Kansas City on Crennel’s staff.

LaCanfora writes that “in an offseason in which seven teams or more could be interviewing...
