Luongo: I regret criticizing Thomas

Speaking with Jean-Francois Chaumont of, Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo said he regrets telling the media that he would have stopped the Maxim Lapierre goal allowed by Tim Thomas in Vancouver's 1-0 win in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals.

“Yeah, for sure,” Luongo said when asked whether he regrets his words. “If I could do it again, I wouldn’t say it. I didn’t want to create the buzz that it did. After the fifth game, I had never been so emotional and I got carried away."

The Conn Smythe-winning Thomas went on to stop 73-of-75 shots in Games 6 and 7 of the finals as Luongo was pulled in Game 6 after allowing three goals in the first period and then gave up three more goals in the Game 7 Boston victory in Vancouver.

Pierce, Kobe 'united' behind players' union

Celtics captain Paul Pierce and Lakers co-captain Kobe Bryant rarely stand on the same side of the ball, except when it comes to matters of the National Basketball Player's Association during the NBA lockout.

Both Bryant and Pierce urged a group of about 75 prominent NBA players gathered in Los Angeles to "remain united" in their collective bargaining efforts with the league's owners, especially with a potential meeting between the two sides later this month, according to a report.

"Our message is that there've been several proposals back and forth, and the last proposal by the NBA would be a giveback of $8 billion over 10 years," NBPA executive director Billy Hunter told "The players understand and they're supportive."

Remy: 'We haven't seen the real Crawford'

NESN analyst Jerry Remy made his weekly appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Thursday morning, following the Red Sox’ 4-0 loss to the Rays Wednesday afternoon. 

In the loss, Carl Crawford went hitless in three at-bats to drop his season average to .249. Crawford failed to get a hit in nine at-bats in the three-game series, striking out five times. 

"He's late on everything, and it seems to me that he open stance he's using right now is not getting it closed soon enough to get the job done," said Remy of Crawford. "He's always used an open stance, but he's not getting it closed fast enough to where to get at the baseball and put good, solid contact on it. … It's been disappointing, we haven't seen the real Carl Crawford, we haven't seen him. It's not the guy who terrorized the Red Sox for so many years in Tampa Bay."

John Lackey -- who allowed six hits and four runs in 6.2 innings -- was the...

Mashup: Manning defends Brady comparison

Giants quarterback Eli Manning received some attention for saying in a radio interview Tuesday that he considers himself in Tom Brady's class. On Wednesday, Manning tried to clarify his comments during an appearance on New York's WFAN radio: "It was kind of like, what am I supposed to say — no, I don't think so?" Manning said. "I’m trying to compete. I’m trying to be the best quarterback and trying to get to a championship. That’s what I’m trying to do every year."

Manning's teammates and coach did their best to support their QB's assertion that he belongs among the league's elite. "I feel like he's definitely in the top five," receiver Hakeem Nicks said. "The way he just can dissect the defense by picking up on blitzes, catching things. I think he can break down a defense just as good as any quarterback in the league. And I don't think you can say [people] overlook him, because he's...

Lavarnway on call for call-up to majors

Ryan Lavarnway, who recently became the first Red Sox minor leaguer since 2004 to clear the 30-homer mark in a single season, was pulled from the seventh inning of Triple-A Pawtucket's game on Wednesday night. According to a team source, no decision has been made yet on whether to call up Lavarnway, but the team is apparently prepared to call him up if one of three injured players -- DH David Ortiz (bursitis), third baseman Kevin Youkilis (back) or shortstop Marco Scutaro (back) -- lands on the disabled list. As such, the Sox wanted to pull Lavarnway in order to ensure that he would be available as protection in case a decision is made to DL one of the position players.

Lavarnway, who turned 24 earlier this month, is viewed by sources both inside and outside the Red Sox organization as being a major league-ready hitter. Several Red Sox officials believe that he has a future as an everyday catcher in the majors, even though at this point, he requires...
