The rumors linking Rajon Rondo to the Detroit Pistons are not going anywhere. After all, Detroit as a destination makes as much sense as any for Rondo.

Considering the lack of activity that has plagued...

WALTHAM, Mass. — Kris Humphries doesn’t get it, but he gets it. He knows his relationship with Rajon Rondo is a source of amusement after their physical altercation spilled into the stands during a game in November. At the same time, he knows better than to call their run-in a “fight.”
Humphries is from Minnesota, after all, a region that shares some of New England’s passion...
