PLAYERS: Rajon Rondo
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
Skepticism Still Remains That Rajon Rondo Is Ready to Grasp Leadership Role   Rajon Rondo is the leader of the Boston Celtics. At least, that’s what I am told. I read it in Jackie MacMullan’s eye-opening piece last week.  As well as CLNS Radio’s own Daniel Baker’s piece on Celtics Media Day last month.  As [...]

Celtics open practice: One fabulous Rondo jacket and some offensive drills

Thanks to Sportsgal1972, I had the pleasure of attending today’s open practice at the Garden. Despite all the action, the highlight of the afternoon was this woman’s Rajon Rondo jacket. Straight money. I gotta get two of these for John and Jay. The Celtics treated this as a real practice. Assistant coach Kevin Eastman explained each drill to the crowd. How seriously does Doc...

Video: Rondo says he loves his teammates, has fun with the media

A playful Rajon Rondo spoke to the media following today's open practice. The whole video is worth a watch. Rondo concludes the video with the following quote: "I love my teammates. These guys are great. This is a close group of guys. We bonded pretty well overseas and we've been together actually the last couple nights. A couple of us have been together, going to dinners...

A Look back: Rajon Rondo versus the Chicago Bulls

A look back on Rajon Rondo's emergence as an impact player in this league, where in the first round of the 2009 NBA Playoffs he showed us just how good he could be. Taking on a rising bulls team with Derrick Rose (ROY and #1 overall pick), Rajon Rondo led the Kevin Garnett-less Celtics to victory in 7 games. Over those 7 games, Rondo averaged 19.4 points, 11.6 assists, and 9...

On this day- Rajon Rondo gets career high 24 assists

ESPN Boxscore On this day today (October 29th in 2010), Rajon Rondo had the second most assists in a game ever by a Celtic with 24 (Bob Cousy had 28 in a game in 1959), in a win over the New York Knicks. Rondo had a triple double (10 rebounds and 10 points) and he also had as many assists as the entire opposing Knicks team. One of his better performances. Do you remember this? This...

Dwyane Wade calls Rajon Rondo’s flagrant foul ‘a punk play’

(Note: If you want to read nearly 2,000 words of semi-coherent analysis on last night’s game, check my recap at MassLive.)The Boston Celtics and Miami Heat don’t like each other. They respect each other, quite a bit, but you’ll never hear about Rajon Rondo and Chris Bosh going out to dinner after a game, and you certainly won’t hear about Kevin Garnett and LeBron James working...

Rajon Rondo's flagrant foul is a bad sign for Celtics.

Rajon Rondo is up to his old tricks. And when I say old tricks, I mean his typical, almost teenage-like borish behavior. Rondo was called for a flagrant foul in Boston's game against Miami last night. That would have been a foul in the NFL.Video after the jump.I'm a Boston fan, have been since I was a kid. I even like Rondo. He's the closest thing to a true point guard...

Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo beef intensifies Celtics and Heat rivalry

As we all know, Ray Allen took his talents to South Beach and signed with the Miami Heat.  After winning with the Boston Celtics and solidifying the “Big 3″, his traitor-like move to play for the Miami Heat created even more drama.  Fans started speculating why he would take less money to join a Boston Celtics rival.  Then stories started coming out that Rajon Rondo and Ray...

Wade On Rondo Foul: It Was A Punk Play

Rajon Rondo committed a flagrant foul on Dwyane Wade during the fourth quarter of the Heat's 120-107 win over the Celtics.

Celtics' Heat hatred not all about Allen

MIAMI -- Boston guard Rajon Rondo took out a Miami player. But it wasn't who you thought it might be. It wasn't Ray Allen, believed to be a traitor by some up north for bolting the Celtics last summer to join the Heat as a free agent. It was guard Dwyane Wade, who called Rondo a "punk" for clotheslining him in the final minute of Miami's 120-107 opening-night...

Dwyane Wade Takes Exception to Rajon Rondo's Hard Foul, Says It Was 'a Punk Play'

It's a good thing that Dwyane Wade plays in the NBA these days, and not on the schoolyard, or even the local YMCA. The Heat guard was the victim of a somewhat innocuous, yet hard foul from Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo late in Miami's 120-107 win Tuesday night. As Wade drove by Rondo, the Boston guard grabbed Wade -- admittedly high -- and slowed him down, but not pulling...

What if the Celtics and Patriots switched?

Credit to CelticsLife's one and only EK on the pic.Hey, with so many Patriots fans ragging on an aging Brady, how about injecting a little youth to the position. Rondo did play QB in high school after all. Now, as for Tom Brady as a point guard. I think he's got the vision but not really the athleticism. If the Celtics ran a purely half court offense and just let Tom Brady...
