Report: Moss, Owens counseled Ochocinco

In an interview with the Boston Herald, Patriots receiver Chad Ochocinco said that former NFL receiving stars Randy Moss and Terrell Owens offered a sort of support group for Ochocinco as he dealt with the challenges of a transition from Cincinnati to New England. From the Herald's article:

Two of the game’s greatest all-time receivers have quietly served as a support group for Ochocinco, calling him almost daily, encouraging him, keeping his head up as he’s struggled with the offense.

“For me, those guys were my outlets. Not Twitter,” Ochocinco said. “To have those two guys in my corner, I talk to them all the time. (Moss) keeps me sane for 16 weeks, every week. Every week we talked. T.O., too. We’re close-knit, us so-called diva receivers. Who is...

Report: C's won't pursue Kaman in trade

According to Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe (via twitter), while the Celtics would not consider adding Hornets center Chris Kaman through a trade, they would have interest in him if he was bought out of his contract and became available as a free agent. Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports (via twitter) that the Rockets, Pacers and Jazz have expressed interest in the 29-year-old, but that asking teams have been told that New Orleans wants "draft picks, cap space and a young player," Wojnarowski quotes an executive as saying.

The seven-footer out of Central Michigan is averaging 9.2 points and 6.6 rebounds in just under 23 minutes a contest. He is also averaging 1.2 blocks a night, primarily as a bench player for the Hornets. Kaman, whom the Hornets acquired in the deal that sent Chris Paul...

It's official: Selig to decide Theo comp

The Associated Press is reporting that commissioner Bud Selig will decide the matter of the compensation that the Red Sox receive from the Cubs for Theo Epstein, who left his tenure as Boston GM with one year remaining on his contract in order to become Cubs president of baseball operations. From the story:

"Selig said Friday night he'd like to have it done as quickly as possible. He said he gave the clubs more latitude in hopes they'd reach an agreement, but they couldn't. Selig said now it's his decision and that's OK, all part of the job."

Red Sox GM Ben Cherington, who had worked with Epstein at times this offseason, discussed the challenge of determining compensation during an interview on The Big Show earlier this week.

"I think it is more challenging to figure out and isolate what the value of an executive...

Pierce: 'I'm probably at about 83.7 percent'

BOSTON -- After leading the Celtics to a pair of victories against potential playoff teams, captain Paul Pierce looks more and more like the player he's been for 13 NBA seasons in Boston -- before a heel injury that forced him to miss most of training camp and play his way back into shape during the first quarter of the lockout-shortened season.

"I still have a little soreness after the game, but I'm pretty close [to 100 percent]," said Pierce, who totaled 28 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists in Friday night's 94-87 win over the Pacers. "I'm probably at about 83.7 percent."

Including Thursday night's 27-point comeback against the Magic in Orlando, Pierce amassed 52 points, 18 assists and 16 rebounds in less than 30 hours -- his best two-game stretch of the Celtics season.

"I'm getting there," added Pierce. "I'm really getting used to the soreness of playing. I'm getting used to the back-to-backs...

BU falls in first-place battle vs. Stony Brook

Boston University's Darryl Partin scored a game-high 21 points Friday night, but the visiting Terriers fell short against Stony Brook, 66-57, in a battle for first place in the America East Conference.

Bryan Dougher scored 18 points for Stony Brook (13-7, 8-1), which squandered a 13-point second-half lead but rebounded to close the game on a 19-6 run.

D.J. Irving contributed seven points and five assists for BU (11-12, 7-2).

BU trailed 37-33 at the half despite hitting 7-of-9 treys and shooting 59 percent overall. The deficit reached 13 (47-34) with 14 minutes left. That's when the Terriers embarked on a 17-0 run, fueled by seven points from Partin. A fastbreak layup by Partin (off a Matt Griffin pass) with nine minutes left put BU ahead by a point. After almost three minutes without either team scoring, Travis Robinson canned 3-pointer with just over six minutes remaining that gave BU a 51-47 lead.

Stony Brook answered with a 13-3...
