Report: Pats, Gronk agree on new deal

The Patriots and Rob Gronkowski have reached an agreement on a six-year, $54 million extension, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The tight end, a second-round pick out of Arizona in 2010, has set numerous records at his position last year, including 1,327 yards and 18 total touchdowns (17 receiving, one rushing) on 90 receptions. The 6-foot-6, 265-pound Gronkowski had been scheduled to make a base salary of $540,000 in 2012 and $575,000 in 2013, plus minimal workout bonuses, in the final two years of his rookie deal.

Wojnarowski: LeBron won't choke again
By: DJ Bean

Yahoo Sports! Basketball writer Adrian Wojnarowski joined Dennis and Callahan Friday to discuss the Eastern Conference finals, which is going to a seventh game thanks to LeBron James' 45-point performance in Game 6.

Wojnarowski said that he feels LeBron James is maturing, and that unlike last season it does not seem as though he will fade as the games become more important. James was relatively quiet in the NBA finals against the Mavericks last year (including an eight-point Game 4 performance), but Wojnarowski thinks this is a different James than the one from years past. 

"He always looked more frenetic when he was younger and not at peace and more immature," Wojnarowski said of James. "Even when you'd see him just bouncing around in Cleveland around the locker room. You don't see that anymore. … Maybe he'll make shots, maybe he'll miss them, but I don't think you'll ever see him go into that shell [like against Dallas...

Mashup: Racist incident mars Euro 2012

Two black players for the Netherlands were targeted with monkey noises and loud jeers Thursday by hundreds of fans at Stadion Miejski during a training session in Krakow, Poland, for Euro 2012. The players, who had visited the site of the former Auschwitz World War II concentration camp a day earlier, responded by moving their drills to the other end of the stadium.

"It is a real disgrace especially after getting back from Auschwitz that you are confronted with this," Dutch captain Mark van Bommel told the British newspaper The Guardian. "We will take it up with UEFA and if it happens at a match we will talk to the referee and ask him to take us off the field."

Added coach Bert van Marwijk: "At least now we know what we can encounter. Very atmospheric."

Despite concerns of racism and violence leading up to the event, UEFA later denied that the chants were racially motivated, claiming the fans were protesting...

KG: C's were 'probably too jacked'

A disappointed Kevin Garnett admitted that the Celtics might have been too excited for their chance to close out the Heat in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals Thursday night at TD Garden. The result was an unforeseen flat performance that produced a 98-79 Miami win that extended the series to Game 7 Saturday night at American Airlines Arena.

“Some shots didn’t fall that we know we can make," Garnett said. "Everybody in here was pumped up. Everybody was probably too jacked. It didn’t transcend into a win, though.”

To Garnett's point, Paul Pierce was just 4-for-18 in 31 minutes while Garnett was 6-for-14. The two stars combined for just 21 points on 10-for-32 shooting from the floor. Now, the Celtics must repeat their clutch road performance from Game 5 in order to advance to the NBA finals and a date with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

“Nothing's been easy up until this point, and you can't expect it...

James: 'I won't regret Game 7' vs. Celtics

LeBron James said he doesn't "really get too far in sports talk radio or anything like that too much." That's probably smart, since none of the noise would have been all that positive over the past week. That is, until his performance in Game 6.

"Well, it was a matter of too much LeBron," said Celtics coach Doc Rivers after his team's 97-78 loss on their home floor. "He was absolutely sensational -- made every shot, set the tone for their whole team. I thought he gave them comfort."

Imagine that, comfort from James in the Heat's biggest game of the season. After all, Wilt Chamberlain numbers from the reigning NBA MVP like 45 points (19-26 FG), 15 rebounds and five assists will do that for a team.

"I think what fuels him is this moment, and the moment defines you," said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. "We've been through a lot in the last two years, and I think we've all learned how to...
