Golfer Brad Faxon, making an appearance on the Dennis & Callahan show Friday morning, said that NBA legend Michael Jordan will make an appearance at Tiger Woods' press conference Friday morning and that Woods' wife Elin will not be in attendance. Faxon said Notah Begay dropped out of this weekend's PGA tournament in Mexico to be with his former Stanford teammate at the press conference, adding, "I know Michael Jordan's going to be there. I know Elin is not going to be there. ... I think Tiger really wants some friends there. That's why this thing is really a mystery to me."
Woods invited only three golf writers, and Faxon, speaking via phone from the Mayakoba Classic at Riviera Maya-Cancun in Mexico, said, "I spoke to Jim McCabe and Doug Ferguson last night, and they were thinking about boycotting the whole thing," because they couldn't ask questions. And, in fact, the Golf Writers Association of America's...
The Celtics needed a final defensive stand to do it, but they were able to hold off the Lakers, 87-86, in Los Angeles Thursday night. Ray Allen scored 24 points on 10-for-15 shooting and all five starters scored in double figures. Read more about this game on Green Street.
Red Sox hitting coach Dave Magadan has been voted into the College Baseball Hall of Fame, earning more votes than anybody in the eligible class. Magadan, who played for the University of Alabama from 1981-83, won the Golden Spikes Award (given to college baseball's best player each year) after hitting .525 in '83. "Dave Magadan was an overwhelming choice for this year's class," said Mike Gustafson, the executive director of the College Baseball Hall of Fame. "He put up amazing numbers during his college career and will be a wonderful addition to the Hall of Fame."
The Celtics officially announced the deal to acquire Nate Robinson and Marcus Landry from the Knicks in exchange for Eddie House, Bill Walker and J.R. Giddens. Boston President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge lauded Robinson's ball-handling and scoring abilities, suggesting that he brings sorely needed skills to the team.
"Nate is one of the great athletes in the league and he brings a dynamic scorer to our team," Ainge said in the release. "We have been seeking a second ball handler capable of penetrating the defense and we believe that he provides that. We love Nate’s ability to pressure the ball defensively and we think he can add to our defense as well as our offense."
Robinson, a 5-foot-9 guard, is currently averaging 13.2 points, 2.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 24.4 minutes per game. The former Washington Husky is also shooting a career-high 45.2 percent from the field in 30 games...
J.R. Giddens, speaking by phone with WEEI.com Thursday evening, said that he was excited for the opportunity to enter a new organization after the trade that sent Nate Robinson and Marcus Landry from the Knicks to the Celtics in exchange for Giddens, Eddie House and Bill Walker. Even so, the second-year player, whom the Celtics selected in the first round (30th overall) of the 2008 draft, suggested that it will be "bittersweet" to leave an organization that has helped his basketball development.
"I think that I was like the little brother to everybody out there, so everybody kind of passed on a little bit of knowledge to me. From the head of the organization down, I’ve had so many heartfelt conversations with even trainers, ball boys, doctors, some of the veterans, some of the young guys, everybody," Giddens said. "When you’re a young guy on the team, everybody has some wisdom to give you. So I’ve...
