Mankins not in attendance at Pats' mini-camp

Guard Logan Mankins was not in attendance Tuesday at the first day of the Patriots' mini-camp. Mankins declined to sign the Patriots' restricted free agent offer Monday and reportedly has been asked to be traded. According to multiple reports, Mankins turned down an offer of seven years, $35 million from the team. The Patriots retain his rights, with contract tender standing at $1.54 million (110 percent of his 2009 contract.)

 

Speaking at the mini-camp, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said when asked Mankins, "Right now, I'm just focusing on the players who are here." When asked further, Belichick added, "Contract situations. are between the player and the club." Belichick also briefly touched on the progress of wide receiver Wes Welker, saying, "I think he's doing all right ... he's got a long rehab. He's coming along. I'm impressed with his work ethic." ...

Refs for Game 6: Two from Game 2

Two of the referees who participated in the Celtics' Game 2 win against the Lakers in Los Angeles will be officiating Game 6, Monty McCutchen and Ken Mauer, with Joe DeRosa serving as the third referee for Tuesday night's finals game between the Celts and LA. In Game 2 the Lakers were afforded 41 free throw attempts to the Celtics' 26, but LA's Kobe Bryant also was whistled for his fifth foul early in the fourth quarter on a charge call issued by Mauer. After the game Lakers coach Phil Jackson complained that Derek Fisher wasn't being allowed to properly guard Ray Allen, who set a record for most 3-pointers in a finals game. DeRosa reffed Game 1, where there were 67 free throw attempts.

Legler: Kobe trusts teammates less and less

ESPN NBA analyst Tim Legler talked to the Dennis & Callahan show Tuesday morning about all things NBA finals, including the fact that Lakers need more from their players not named Kobe Bryant if they are to be successful in the final two games of the series.

 

“If you’re Phil Jackson, you hope you can get it from somewhere because I don’t care what Kobe Bryant does tonight, it’s not going to be enough unless he gets some more balance across the board,” Legler said.

 

One of the main reasons the Lakers were unable to get that balance was a lack of trust from their superstar, according to Legler. “For Kobe Bryant, the problem right now is as the game goes on and the Celtics make a run in the second half, Kobe trusts his teammates less and less and less. And that’s a big problem for the...

Mashup: Jets' Revis betrays coach

The latest controversy from Jets minicamp came Monday when cornerback Darrelle Revis sat out a drill as a message to management: "Something just to let them know I can play and I can not play," Revis said. However, he had told coach Rex Ryan he needed to sit because he didn't feel well. Responded Ryan: "Any player we have, when they tell you something is not right, you believe them to be a man of their word." Get more on that story, plus read about how the Big 12 survived, and check out videos, trivia and more, at Tuesday's Morning Mashup.
