McGinest: I'd like to retire as a Patriot

Forner Patriots linebacker Willie McGinest spent some time working out with the Detriot Lions recently and dropped some hints about a possible comeback, but the 39-year-old said there was only one he would return to the game. In a statement issued via his publicist on Saturday, McGinest spelled everything out.

“Even though I looked as good as I did, this number 55 has been retired for three years and plans to stay retired. The only thing that will bring me back is a one day contract with New England to retire as a Patriot.”

McGinest won three Super Bowls with the Patriots, and played in New England from 1994 through 2005. He then spent three seasons with Cleveland.

Luongo adds to his comments about Thomas

Roberto Luongo, who created some controversy after saying that he would have made the save on the Max Lapierre shot allowed by Bruins' goalie Tim Thomas in the B's 1-0 Game 5 loss to Vancouver, didn't back off his analysis when talking just prior to his team leaving for Boston Saturday.

"I said he might make some saves that I don't. I was just saying, on that particular play, I would have played it different. That's the difference between me and him," the Canucks goalie told reporters. "I have been pumping his tires ever since the series started. I haven't heard one nice thing he had to say about me. That's the way it is."

Luongo, whose team holds a 3-2 advantage over the Bruins in the best-of-seven Stanley Cup finals, articulated following the Canucks win at Rogers Arena that because of the two goalies' styles -- with Thomas being more aggressive, and Luongo typically remaining closer to the net -- it was his opinion that he...

Julien says Luongo entitled to his opinion

Asked about the comments made by Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo following his the Canucks' Game 5 Stanley Cup finals win over the Bruins, stating that he would have made the save on the Max Lapierre goal given up by B's goalie Tim Thomas, Bruins coach Claude Julien downplayed the controversy during Saturday's media session.

"To be honest with you, this series has been a lot about that, and I know you guys are probably loving it, but we're down to the wire here and have to fosu on our game and what it means, a lot more than what is being said," said Julien, whose team is facing elimination, down 3-2 with Game 6 to be played at TD Garden Monday night.

"Everybody is entitled to their opinion. Anybody can say what they want. Right now my focus is on getting this team back in this series. The last time we came back here we were down two games and we got ourselves back into it and I see no reason at all why we can't do that with the one...

Dirk calls Wade, James 'childish ... ignorant'

Dirk Nowitzki, who was bothered by a sinus infection throughout Game 4 of the NBA finals, called the antics of Miami's LeBron James and Dwyane Wade "a little childish, a little ignorant," after the pair of Heat players were caught seemingly mocking the Dallas star by simulating being sick during the shootaround prior to Game 5.

"I've been in this league for 13 years. I've never faked an injury or an illness before," Nowitzki said. "But (the video) happened. It's over to me. It's not going to add anything extra to me. This is the NBA finals. If you need an extra motivation, you have a problem."

Wade explained that the video -- which was taken by the CBS affiliate in Dallas-Fort Worth and shows the guard coughing and then saying to James, "Did you hear me cough? Think I'm sick" -- was taken out of context.

"First of all, it wasn't fake coughing," Wade said. "I actually did cough. And with...

Nate Robinson cited for public urination
By: admin

Former Celtic guard Nate Robinson was cited for public urination early Friday morning, leading to a summons being issued a court date of June 22. According to the Associated Press, the offense normally carries a $50 fine.

According to AP, a White Plains, N.Y. officer spotted Robinson urinating on a sidewalk outside a bookstore around 2 a.m. Posting on his Twitter account, the guard wrote he made a "silly mistake," promising it would never happen again.

Robinson was traded from Celtics to Oklahoma City last season in the deal which also sent Kendrick Perkins to the Thunder. He played in just four games with OKC, averaging 7.5 minutes per game, having undergone arthroscopic knee surgery in early March.
