In the spirit of the holiday season, today’s NESN Daily poll goes a little off from the world of strictly sports.
Being that it’s Christmas Eve and Santa Claus is preparing to make his yearly journey to deliver toys to boys and girls, we thought it’d be appropriate to ponder on which Boston-area athlete might make the best imitator. You’re not soon to see any of these four shopping for a job as a mall Santa, but who knows, maybe someday they’ll get a chance to don the red suit.
Is it Kevin Garnett? With his lanky frame, Garnett might not be the first aesthetic choice for Santa, but if it actually came down to delivering gifts on a schedule, we might count on him to manage the clock. The same goes for Zdeno Chara, whose physical reputation might not make him the obvious choice, but, like Garnett, knows how to win a world championship.
Among Boston athletes who may have a more traditional Santa Claus build, Vince Wilfork and David Ortiz immediately come to mind. Ortiz may not have qui...

Kevin Garnett and Gerald Wallace both received a technical in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s Christmas Day game after a minor scuffle. Wallace grabbed onto Garnett’s shorts following a shot attempt, something Garnett didn’t respond well to:
Well, it's taken a long time but we have finally reached Christmas Eve 2012. It's been a crazy holiday season, one that the Celtics shouldn't be proud of. Since the beginning of the holiday season(approximately Nov.22/Thanksgiving), Boston has gone just 7-7. Combine with a 6-6 pre-Thanksgiving record and we are stuck with a .500 basketball team. I expected more, but remember...
There has to be a rule somewhere about how long you can hold onto a man’s shorts. Gerald Wallace grabbed a handful of Kevin Garnett’s in Brooklyn Nets/Boston Celtics Christmas Day match-up. Garnett took exception when Wallace wouldn’t let go after regaining his balance. It was the kinda move that can start a brawl, which [...]
