Rajon Rondo visits high school, teaches algebra

Rajon Rondo is one of the smartest basketball players in the NBA, but how does he fare in an actual classroom? Pretty well, apparently. The Celtics point guard dropped by some schools on Tuesday morning to meet with kids, and he also did a little teaching of his own. At Burke High School in Dorchester, the All-Star took to the whiteboard to teach some algebra. “Teaching freshman...

Rajon Rondo Teaches Some Algebra Just Because

Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics Tweeted out a picture of himself teaching a high school freshman class of Algebra on Tuesday morning and the reasons why he was doing so are not entirely clear.

Taking Stock: Celtics – Wizards

After every game, we’ll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player’s overall value. Starters Rajon Rondo:  Rack up another double-double for Rondo.  Among the really positives:  Rondo shot 3-4 from the line with the game hanging in the balance.  That’s a monumental step.  Also, his clutch baskets came in the form of jumpers.  I can appreciate the...

KG's Interviews are Priceless

Kevin Garnett has given us much enjoyment with his post game interviews. We have heard rants about how he can shoot threes and how he's not old. We've heard analogies about making tortillas and casseroles. Whatever he comes up with, it's always fun. But, when even KG calls an interview weird, you know it's going to be fun. Here is a transcript from Green Street...

Kevin Garnett’s Practice Habits Spur Celtics Teammates to Greater Emphasis on Preparation

WALTHAM, Mass. — After more than 45,000 minutes played and some 24,000 points scored, Kevin Garnett has gotten the hang of this professional basketball thing. But as the surefire future Hall of Famer embarks on his 18th NBA season, he is the subject of constant monitoring, probably even more so than he was as a teenager in 1995. Back then, after all, nobody knew what to expect...

Your Morning Dump… Where the Garnett/Sullinger ticket is a winning one

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “I thought he did a great job,” Garnett said of Sullinger’s first start during the Celtics [team stats]’ win in Washington last Saturday. “He’s a no-nonsense guy. Not that I’m shooting down the other...

KG compares Sullinger to Perkins

Kevin Garnett says Jared Sullinger reminds him of Kendrick Perkins when it comes to basketball IQ and unselfishness. — Boston Celtics (@celtics) November 6, 2012 Obviously a pretty big compliment by the Big Ticket. KG has been searching for a partner in crime down low since Perkins was traded. Shaq couldn't get back on the court due to his foot. J.O. needed to be wrapped...
