BOSTON -- The Boston Celtics take on the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday in Boston. Here are four things to keep an eye on.1. Boston Celtics star Kyrie Irving will miss Wednesday’s game against the Detroit Pistons with a strained right knee, but Celtics coach Brad Stevens believes he should play in the All-Star game if he’s healthy, despite missing two games prior.“I was actually asked about this on the radio, I haven’t put much time and thought into it, really,” Stevens said. “But he’s been day-to-day. I think that there would be a chance that, if we played Friday or Saturday that he’d be cleared, and I guess my thought would be, if he would have been cleared for us on Friday or Saturday, then he should probably play. If there’s any issues at all and he’s not 110 percent, I would not play. The reason I say that is because you’re going to have to get your basketball activity in regardless. You need to get up and down the … [Read more...] about Boston Celtics vs. Detroit Pistons: Brad Stevens thinks Kyrie Irving should play in the All-Star game, if healthy

Retired Red Sox slugger David Ortiz said Patriots quarterback Tom Brady hasn’t asked him for retirement advice, but if he ever does, Ortiz knows what he would say. “I would be like, ‘Shut the hell up. You have many years to go still,’” Ortiz told WEEI’s Lou Merloni and Greg Dickerson Saturday during the Red Sox’s Winter Weekend. Ortiz said he sees no visible decline in Brady’s physical well-being, so he believes the five-time Super Bowl champ should keep chasing more rings well into his 40s. “I would be like, ‘Bro, don’t go anywhere, because you have no pain,’” Ortiz said. “Let’s keep one thing in mind. This guy takes care of himself better than anybody I have ever seen. The way this guy eats, the way he gets prepared, the way he physically … [Read more...] about David Ortiz doesn’t think Tom Brady should retire anytime soon
Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray has a lot of people’s attention right now. He’s got NFL teams wondering if he’s gonna go the football route. He’s got MLB teams wondering if he’s gonna stick with baseball. And he’s got millions of sports fans wondering what his final decision will be. But there’s another group I hope has become equally fascinated with Murray lately: parents. Because the guy is further proof that kids should play multiple sports. A little less than a month ago, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson — who played football and baseball in college — was making the same argument. Asked about Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes, a high-school-baseball star whom the Tigers drafted in the 37th round five years ago, Wilson reiterated his long-held belief that youngsters should grow up wearing as many uniforms as they can. “Yeah I mean, playing multiple sports, that really helps you in a drastic way to be able to throw a football … [Read more...] about Kyler Murray the latest example of why kids should play multiple sports

CLEVELAND -- There's no denying it - Thursday night's 21-17 loss to the Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium was an absolute disaster for the Jets. A 14-point first-half lead evaporated and Baker Mayfield, the quarterback the Browns drafted No. 1 overall, badly outplayed the Jets' No. 3 pick, Sam Darnold. Defensively, the Jets collapsed over the final two-plus quarters and were unable to adapt once Mayfield checked into the game for the injured Tyrod Taylor. Studs and duds from embarrassing loss So did Thursday night's loss feel different than a typical NFL defeat? Leonard Williams says yes. "We had them as one of the teams that we should beat and I'm sure they had us as one of the teams (they should beat) as well," Williams said. "We knew that it was going to be a fight and we just didn't close it out." That's a striking sentence: The Jets considered the Browns a team that they should beat. Logically, of course, it makes sense. The Browns hadn't … [Read more...] about Jets’ Leonard Williams after ugly loss: Browns are ‘one of the teams that we should beat’
