Bob Ryan asks for a mulligan today. No, it doesn’t related to the Kidd family. Bob feels like a fool for not including the Boston Celtics in his recent column on dynasties. Shira Springer reports that NBPA (NBA Union) is going to go all out to help Vin Baker collect all of his $35 million from the Celtics.
