BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
The fine folks at Dime Magazine sent me this video of their interview with Rajon Rondo as he talks sneakers. If it looks like Rondo has a new pair of kicks on almost every game it's because he does. He says he wears his shoes a max of two games (and then gives them to fans).
Kevin Durant was handing out free kisses on Wednesday night. Let me explain.Seen here is the Oklahoma City Thunder forward laying a big fat one on an elderly woman after accidentally hitting her in the face with an errant pass. The play occurred during the third quarter of OKC's game against the Los Angeles Clippers.The Thunder went on to win the game, 117-111, in overtime...

Trading places: Green played well against his former team
Saying "best win of the season" is cliche. But so far, this was absolutely the best win of the season. The Celtics beat the Thunder 108-100, in a game that was hardly in doubt in the final quarter. The Celtics were led by Paul Pierce who was absolutely on fire, putting up 27 points on 8-16 shooting, and of course...
On Thanksgiving eve, the Thunder faced off against the Clippers. The game went into overtime resulting in a win for the Thunder 117-110, stopping the Clippers six-game win streak and ending their perfect road record. It was ABSOLUTELY like a playoff game in November. There was one play where an older woman suffered the hazards [...]

Rajon Rondo resumes his spectacular point guard play recording his 35th consecutive game with 10 or more assists–two shy of John Stockton and 11 shy of Magic Johnson for the NBA all-time assist record. Aside from Rondo’s quest, the Celtics struggle to gain momentum early in the 2012-13 season losing back-to-back contests to the Detroit Pistons...
Sharp passes aren’t the only things Celtics players Rajon Rondo and Jared Sullinger were dishing out this Thanksgiving. The pair made their way to the Jordan Boys & Girls Club in Chelsea, Mass., to celebrate a holiday treat. The Boston Celtics’ charity, the Shamrock Foundation, made a gift of musical resources to the local children. Rondo and Sullinger jumped right in and...

The team opened up strong in the first half shooting 52.4% from the field...

Two days after taking on the NBA’s most well-coached unit in the Spurs, the Celtics host arguably the league’s most talented roster when the Oklahoma City Thunder pay a post-Thanksgiving visit. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook will lead the Thunder (9...
I just got back from an 8-hour drive this Saturday with only one thing on my mind…except for a couple X-rated things. I just wanted to sit on my couch, watch the Celtics play the not so exciting Raptors. Why would I be so enthralled over one lousy regular season game? The answer has two words. RAJON RONDOOOOOOO. Man, I haven’t been so excited over a player on the Celtics since...
