Report: Thibodeau says no to Hornets

According to a report in the New York Post, Celtics assistant coach Tom Thibodeau turned down the Hornets' offer of their head coaching position. Thibodeau reportedly had been given until the start of Thursday night's Game 1 of the NBA finals to accept the offer, with New Orleans planning to give the job to Trail Blazers assistant Monty Williams as a backup plan.

 

Thibodeau also is in the running for the Bulls vacancy, and reports indicated that Bulls executives Jon Paxson and Gar Forman flew to Los Angeles to interview Thibodeau, who also interviewed with the Nets before the Celtics departed for the West Coast.

 

Meanwhile, ESPN NBA analyst Jeff Van Gundy removed himself for consideration from all vacancies, according to the The Star-Ledger in New Jersey. Van Gundy reportedly was considered a leading candidate with the Nets, who also interviewed former Mavericks coach Avery Johnson.

Joyce: 'I just cost that kid a perfect game'

After missing a call with two outs in the ninth inning of the Tigers' game with the Indians Wednesday night, costing Detroit starter Armando Galarraga a perfect game, umpire Jim Joyce admitted his mistake and showed his remorse. Joyce called Cleveland baserunner Jason Donald safe, saying that he beat the throw from first baseman Miguel Cabrera to Galarraga, who was covering on the grounder between first and second base. (Click here for audio of Joyce's postgame reaction.)

 

"It was the biggest call of my career, and I kicked the [stuff] out of it," Joyce said after the Tigers' 3-0 win at Detroit's Comerica Park. "I just cost that kid a perfect game. ... I thought he beat the throw. I was convinced he beat the throw, until I saw the replay."

 

Joyce met with Galarraga following the game,...
