Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis fired another shot at the Patriots and coach Bill Belichick on Thursday, standing by the fact that he called him a “jerk” earlier this offseason and adding that some of the things Belichick has said about the Jets over the years have been “disrespectful.”
“I gave my honest opinion,” Revis told reporters when asked about his comments on Belichick earlier this offseason. “You guys know me very well. This isn’t the first time me speaking what I need to speak about something. I talked about the Randy Moss stuff… It’s just how I felt. That’s how I feel.”
Revis said he does respect Belichick, but seemed to hint that the coach’s on-field comments after beating...
Buster Olney of ESPN joined Mut & Merloni Thursday to discuss the Red Sox and their current woes. On the subject of Josh Beckett, Olney said the team needs to determine whether the pitcher, who reportedly went golfing last Thursday after being scratched for Saturday's start with a lat injury, has any intention of returning to his 2007 form, when he finished second in American League Cy Young voting and led the Sox to a World Series title.
"You try to figure out a way to sort of get past this stuff. I think you could hear it in Bobby [Valentine]'s answers yesterday when he was sort of struggling for answers and trying to get a grip around it," Olney said of Beckett's behavior. "I'm sure that today, presumably after the game, they're going to be looking for answers from him as well. I'm sure that they're just looking for some sign that he wants to get back to doing what he was doing in 2007, that he wants t be the leader of the...
ESPN columnist Jackie MacMullan joined Mut & Merloni Thursday to discuss the Celtics and Thursday night's Game 6 against the Hawks. The Celtics lead the series, 3-2, and have the opportunity to advance to the second round with a Game 6 victory.
"I expect them to win the game tonight, but here's what gives me pause: This has the same feel to it, to me, as Game 7 of the Bruins-Capitals," MacMullan said. "Everybody's like, 'Yeah, they never should have gotten to this point, but it's OK, they're home, they're going to take care of it.' Well, it just doesn't magically happen.
"Of course, and you don't think Doc [Rivers] is going to bring this up? The Celtics have never lost a series that they've been ahead 3-1. Never. You think these guys want to be the first ones to do that? I don't think so."
MacMullan noted that the Celtics have "everything they can handle" with center Al Horford back in the...
WALTHAM -- The Celtics announced Thursday morning, just hours before their Game 6 showdown with the Hawks, that captain Paul Pierce has a sprained MCL in his left knee but he will be available to play and start in the potential closeout game for Boston.
Pierce injured the knee on Sunday morning during a Celtics shootaround prior to Game 4 at the Garden. He then reinjured hours later in the game when he tried to get around a screen set by Josh Smith.
Celtics officials at the team's shootaround Thursday were adamant in denying reports of any tears or bone spurs in Pierce's knee.
The team also announced that starting off-guard Avery Bradley has been playing with a sore rotator cuff in his left shoulder. He also is expected to start and play in Game 6 tonight.
"It's a little sore," Bradley said after Thursday's shootaround. "It's something I've been dealing with all season."
The NBA has assigned Derrick Stafford, Eric Lewis and Bill Kennedy to referee tonight's Game 6 between the Celtics and Hawks. Celtics coach Doc Rivers has a history with Kennedy. After being thrown out of a game in 2009 against the Bulls by Kennedy, Rivers called it "The most unprofessional technical by a ref I've ever had."
Rivers was fined $25,000 by the league and Kennedy was fined an undisclosed amount.
