The Pats attempt to control every morsel of information regarding the team and their players, and rarely, if ever, announce that a player is undergoing offseason surgery. (They rarely, if ever, acknowledge that a player is even injured, and probably would never say a word if the league didn't force them to.) And here's Spikes, a Twitter maven, blabbing that he's going under the knife.

Spikes didn't say why he was being operated on, but he suffered a knee injury in November that caused him to miss seven games.

Brad Stevens podcast: "Only goal around here is a championship"

Mike Gorman and Brian Scalabrine talk with Boston Celtics Head Coach Brad Stevens at Celtics Media Day about raised expectations for the upcoming season, how Al Horford will fit, can Isaiah Thomas build off an All-Star season, and how high are his goals. 

Plus, Kyle Draper and A. Sherrod Blakely discuss whether or not some critiscism could come Stevens' way if the Celtics doesn't perform well in the playoffs.
