Blind Optimism: 4 things to love about the Boston Celtics

So in the midst of losing our head coach, two future Hall-of-famers, constant rumors that our uber-talented point guard is soon out the door, repeated talks of tanking and now a former Kardashian on the roster, you would think that the natural reaction of a Celtics fan would be to: bury their heads in the sand, obsess over the Sox/Bruins/Pats, sob hysterically after their fourth...

Pistons interested in Rajon Rondo?

The Pistons reportedly are interested in making an offer to the Celtics for Rajon Rondo but apparently are not willing to part with the player needed to make the deal.

With an Option Like Brandon Jennings, Detroit Pistons Can Afford to Wait on Rajon Rondo

Brandon Jennings has entered the Pistons’ rumor mill, proving the team has another quality option at point guard other than Rajon Rondo. (mbk2842, Flickr) The Detroit Pistons have been burning up the phone lines this offseason, desperate to make more moves in order to shake up their roster, which was listless the better part of 2012. Considering the lack of activity that has plagued...

Jeff Green Represents Celtics’ Future to Some Fans, Toxic Contract to Others (Poll)

Kevin Garnett said last year that Jeff Green has a chance to be one of the greatest players in NBA history. The Celtics are about to test Garnett’s theory, big time. Green, who spent much of last season as the fourth offensive option behind Paul Pierce, Garnett and Rajon Rondo, respectively, will start next season without at least two and perhaps all three of those players. Pierce...

Report: Pistons offer up Brandon Knight for Rondo, Boston wants Drummond

The hot rumor over the weekend was the Detroit Pistons offering up G Brandon Knight and some expiring contracts for Boston point guard Rajon Rondo.

Kris Humphries, New Celtics Teammates Confident They Will Bury Hatchet With Rajon Rondo

WALTHAM, Mass. — Kris Humphries doesn’t get it, but he gets it. He knows his relationship with Rajon Rondo is a source of amusement after their physical altercation spilled into the stands during a game in November. At the same time, he knows better than to call their run-in a “fight.” Humphries is from Minnesota, after all, a region that shares some of New England’s passion...

Paul Pierce sentimental for return to Boston, not mad about trade, also not sure when Rondo will be healthy

Back on draft day when it was announced that Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett were going to be traded, the immediate thing that crossed my mind was how emotional it will be to attend their first game back at the Garden next season.  I get goosebumps just thinking about.  To no surprise, Pierce has been thinking about it a lot too.  From Sports Illustrated's Chris Mannix: Pierce...

Kevin Garnett Considered Retiring, Was ‘Tough Leaving (Rajon) Rondo’ After Celtics, Nets Trade

Kevin Garnett weighed all of his options during the offseason, including retiring from the game he loves. In recent years, contemplating his future has been a regular part of his summer routine.

Video: MarShon Brooks on Joe Johnson, Rondo and more

MarShon Brooks talks about playing behind Joe Johnson and preparing to play with Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley. Brooks should get more minutes with the Celtics, which should be great for him. He averaged 12.6 points per game and 2.3 assists per game in his rookie season at 29.4 minutes per game. That number dipped the next season when the Nets acquired Johnson and Brooks saw only...

Hogg: Drummond is too valuable to trade

Adding a star point guard like Rajon Rondo would certainly put an exclamation point on Joe Dumars' rebuilding of the Pistons. But the price is currently much too high. The Boston Globe reported this weekend that the Pistons have talked to Boston about Rondo, trying to tempt the Celtics with some combination of Brandon Knight, the expiring contracts of Charlie Villanueva and...
