PLAYERS: Rajon Rondo
TEAMS: Boston Celtics
John Wall came in fourth place behind champion Tony Parker, Rajon Rondo and Deron Williams in the Skills Challenge on All-Star Saturday in Orlando, improving upon his fifth-place last season. But that didn’t mean that there wasn’t another slightly embarrassing moment to go along with Greg Monroe pulling out a rug from under him late in the Rising Stars Challenge. Read full article >>

Rondo Replaces Stephen Curry in NBA Skills Challenge

Rajon Rondo will have more responsibility representing the Boston Celtics this All-Star weekend as he has been chosen to fill in for Stephen Curry in the Taco Bell NBA Skills Challenge. Curry, the defending champion, is out with a strained tendon in his right foot. Rondo will be competing against Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving, San Antonio’s Tony Parker, Washington’s John Wall,...

Rondo Replaces Curry in Skills Challenge

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 for Gasol rumor hot again

According to Peter Vecsey of the NY Post, the Lakers would be more than interested in acquiring Rajon Rondo from the Celtics. If the Lakers indeed are interested in signing Rasheed Wallace — a logical step-down from flirting with Gilbert Arenas—it lends credence to the Rajon Rondo/Jermaine O’Neal-Pau Gasol swap I keep hearing. Lord knows they’re desperate for a point guard...

Rajon Rondo replaces Stephen Curry in Skills Challenge

Does anyone still watch the Skills Challenge? I mean, seriously. What's the point of this thing? Does dribbling around stationary objects, throwing a ball through a tire and making a layup really prove anything? Is anyone astounded by the "skills" displayed in the Skills Challenge? It's about as relevant as the 2Ball contest was. If you remember 2Ball, you&...

All-Star Game video: Rondo's half court alley-oop to LeBron

Rajon Rondo tossed a half court alley-oop to LeBron James during tonight's All-Star game in the video above. That assist was just one out of 8 dimes for Rondo, who played fifteen and a half minutes and notched 2 rebounds and 2 points as well. Thanks to NESportz from the shoutbox for sharing the video.

Your Morning Dump... Rondo, Pierce do very little in All-Star game

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. Not even the All-Star Game's lack of defensive intensity could shake Pierce from his season-long shooting slump. He missed seven of the eight shots he put up, connecting on a first-half 3-pointer for his...

Are the Celtics being used to facilitate Howard trade to the Lakers?

The two big rumors in the NBA this weekend were Rajon Rondo to the Lakers for Pau Gasol and an imminent Dwight Howard to the Lakers trade, which was denied by the Magic. Dwight Howard is the Lakers main target. So far they have offered Bynum to the Magic for him, which the Magic turned down. The Magic want both Bynum and Gasol for Howard and Hedo's poison pill contract, which...
