The 6-foot-9 forward was able to familiarize himself on the court with...

Video: Felger calls Rondo a "prick" on TV

I'm going to show a lot of restraint here when I say this about Michael Felger:  He likes to take extreme stances to get reactions out of people.  It's his thing.  But sometimes, he can go to far.  Like what he said about Rajon Rondo tonight.  It comes at the end of the video above, where he says "he can't shoot and personality-wise...

Even if the past three months have consisted of nothing but exhibition games and stock footage of David Stern talking business, there’s been plenty of time to mull over potential free agent options for the Boston Celtics ahead of Christmas day.

The Chris Paul Knee Issue

I've stated my reasons several times why I wouldn't do the Rajon Rondo/Chris Paul trade, but the scariest part of the trade would be if the Celtics re-signed Paul for $100 million over 5 years and he ceased being a top point guard.
