Happy26th Birthday to Celtics’ PG Rajon Rondo!!
Rondo will NOT play tonight versus his best friend Perkins and the OKC Thunder. He will instead be at home serving his second game of a two game suspension.
However, the NBA decided to reward Rondo by naming him Joe Johnson’s (knee) injury replacement to the NBA All-Star game this weekend in Orlando. Rondo will join teammate Paul Pierce.
In 22 games this season, Rondo is averaging 14.9 PPG (which is up from his career average of 10.9 PPG). He is averaging 9.5 APG (which is up from his 7.7 APG).
According to NBA source, Rajon Rondo named to replace Joe Johnson on All-Star team. Rondo’s Friday media avail will be interesting #celtics

BEST OF MAXIM
It looks like Celtics fans have something to look forward to on All Star Saturday after all. Last year we had Ray and Paul shooting it out in the 3 point contest. This year it didn't appear that there would be any Celtics entrants in the Saturday festivities. But today, Rajon Rondo was named to replace Stephen Curry in the Skills Challenge.
In case you have forgotten...
Rondo, totally sick of media, deadpans: "I don't want to start any trade rumors but Kendrick Perkins is getting traded back to the Celtics."— Ben Golliver (@blazersedge) February 24, 2012
So.. this is kind of out of left field. Who knows how much credence there is to this, knowing Rondo he was probably kidding. The Perk trade certainly has not gone away as a topic...
Today is Rajon Rondo's 26th birthday. I'm declaring a moratorium on the BS surrounding this kid for a day.
Just as a matter of perspective: When Paul Pierce was 26, he was starting a season in which he'd shoot 40.2% (29.9% from 3). The kid is young, and there is room and time for him to improve.
With video: Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo has been suspended two games without pay by the NBA for throwing a ball at an official during a game.
Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo has been suspended for two games for throwing a ball at an official and striking him in the chest during Sunday's loss in Detroit, NBA executive vice president of basketball operations Stu Jackson announced Monday.
Rajon Rondo hasn't been having the greatest week of his career, but the Celtics point guard should be happy to hear that he is now the newest member of the Eastern Conference All-Star team. Rondo has been pegged to replace Atlanta Hawks shooting guard Joe Johnson in the upcoming all-star game in Orlando, according to various reports. Johnson will miss the game due to tendinitis...

Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo will take Joe Johnson's spot on the Eastern Conference roster at this year's All-Star Game after being named an injury replacement Tuesday by NBA commissioner David Stern.
With the Boston Celtics losing six of their last seven games and falling back under .500 comes the inevitable call from anyone with an opinion to get rid of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, Rajon Rondo, the team trainer and the head of the public relations department.
The "blow the team up" rallies, which disappeared when the Celtics were on their winning streak...
Rajon Rondo was tabbed as a replacement in the All-Star Game for Hawks' guard Joe Johnson. But is the Celtics' point guard the best guy for the job? Zach Lowe isn't so sure anymore.
DALLAS - Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey went to the free throw line Sunday night 15 times and scored 12 of his 16 points there. The Celtics attempted 15 free throws, and perhaps that was the source of some of Rajon Rondo’s frustration as he was ejected in the third quarter.
