Tanguay: 'It's bush league what Garnett did to Allen'


Tanguay: 'It's bush league what Garnett did to Allen'

It was the moment we've all been waiting for: Ray Allen entering in the game as a member of the Heat. How would he act? How would his former teammates act?

Well, Ray walked over to the Celtics' bench in a good-faith gesture. Some coaching staff, including Doc Rivers, embraced the move.

Kevin Garnett? Not so much.

CSNNE's Gary Tanguay thinks it was a 'bush league' move for Garnett to not acknowledge Allen. After all, the two sides did win a championship together.

But Tommy Heinsohn swatted Tanguay's opinion right back at him.

"This is not the social club," Tommy said. "You want to make it a social meeting! Come on! Red Auerbach would have put a medal on him!"

Tommy has spoken! Now it's your turn to speak. Are you Team Tanguay or Team Tommy?

Kraft, Pats still bitter: NFL 'really messed this up badly'

Kraft, Pats still bitter: NFL 'really messed this up badly'

It's been almost two years exactly since the Deflategate saga began during the AFC title game between the Colts and Patriots on Jan. 18, 2015.

Since then, Robert Kraft has expressed his displeasure at how the whole thing was handled by the league -- particularly as it relates to the treatment of quarterback Tom Brady -- on multiple occasions. And according to a story in the New York Times, that feeling hasn't subsided.

"Sometimes, the league really messes up, and I think they really messed this up badly," said Kraft . "But we’ve all agreed to subjugate our right to disrupt everything.

"I mean, we can, but we’re a partnership. There’s jealousy, there’s envy, there’s stupidity. Sometimes, life is unfair, and you have to suck it up and move on and not use it as an excuse."

Brady served his four-game suspension to start this season, and Kraft opted to accept the league's punishment for the team following the 2014 season: They were docked two draft picks (a first and a fourth) and fined $1 million.

The piece includes Kraft's thoughts on President-elect Donald Trump ("Loyalty is important to me, and he has been a wonderful friend," Kraft said), as well as comments from others on how Kraft has handled his situation ("I think Bob has exhibited disagreement, but he’s also very capable of making and influencing change," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said).
