Shaq: 'It's hard not being in charge'

Shaquille O'Neal -- who has scored just 10 points in his last four games -- spoke to Yahoo Sports following the Celtics' 95-90 win over the Kings on Tuesday night. O'Neal -- who played just 16 minutes in the Kings' game, scoring two points --  told Yahoo that if circumstances were different he wouldn't be pleased with such a limited role.

 

"If I was on a [expletive] team, I'd be pissed right now," O'Neal said. "Two points? I would have [expletive] somebody up in the locker room."

 

But the Celtics are 37-11 and chasing another championship, and O'Neal seems to be on board with his current role. The center has started in all 36 games he's played in, averaging 9.3 points and 4.9 rebounds.

 

“It’s hard not being in charge for me. It really is. But I got to accept it,” O’Neal said. “This is a good team. I’m not the only Hall-of-Famer hopeful here....

Mashup: Steelers LB mocks commissioner

Steelers linebacker James Harrison made clear his feelings about being heavily fined for hits to the head this season. At a cold Super Bowl media day on Tuesday, he said sarcastically: "I don't want to hurt nobody, I don't want to step on nobody's foot and hurt their toe, I don't want to have no dirt or none of this rubber on the field fly into their eye and make their eye hurt, I just want to tackle them softly on the ground and, if y'all can, lay a pillow down where I'm going to tackle them so they don't hit the ground too hard, Mr. [Roger] Goodell."

Sox may not get draft pick for Lopez

According to Marc Topkin of the St. Petersburg Times (via twitter), the Rays are expected to sign infielder Felipe Lopez to a minor league deal in the coming days. If Lopez does indeed sign a minor league deal, it would come as a bit of a blow to the Red Sox, who signed him with just over a week left in the regular season.

 

If Lopez, a Type B free agent who rejected an offer of salary arbitration from the Sox, signs a major league deal with another club, Boston would get a sandwich pick in the 2011 draft (around the No. 60 overall selection). If, however, Lopez signs a minor league deal, the Sox -- according to multiple major league sources -- would not be entitled to draft pick compensation.

Barnes leads UNC in rout of BC

Harrison Barnes scored 26 points and North Carolina ran Boston College out of its own gym, 106-74, in an ACC game Tuesday night.

 

Tyler Zeller added 18 points for UNC, which moved into a tie with Duke for the ACC lead at 6-1 (16-5 overall).

 

Joe Trapani scored 25 points and grabbed a career-high 15 rebounds to lead the Eagles, who fell to 14-8 overall and 4-4 in the ACC. Corey Raji scored 16 points and Biko Paris netted 11. Reggie Jackson returned to the starting lineup after losing his starting spot vs. Duke, but he continued his recent struggles, finishing with just six points on 2-of-9 shooting.

 

BC had a five-point lead at 18-13 7:44 into the contest following two Trapani free throws. That's when UNC heated up. The Heels, who hit five of their first seven 3-pointers, went on a 22-4 run, capped by a John Henson breakaway dunk. That made it 35-22 with 6:25 left in the period. UNC led by 14 at the...
