Found January 29, 2013 on Hoops Addict:
Today we talked about Rajon Rondo's knee injury and how it impacts the Celtics, Toronto making another push for Rudy Gay, Wayne Ellington finding out he got traded after waking up from a nap, what players got snubbed from the All-Star game and Kobe Bryant being a facilitator.

Why we can still enjoy the Rondo-less Celtics

These guys still have something to prove. I'm not for one second going to argue that the Celtics are a better team without Rajon Rondo.  But there are some numbers that suggest Doc Rivers may have known what he was talking about when he said "You can write our obituary. I'm not." Boston was 18-20 in games Rondo played this season, and they are 3-3 so far without...

Doc Rivers laughs off talk Celtics are better w/o Rondo

Via WEEI: The Celtics are now 2-0 since losing Rajon Rondo for the season with an ACL tear in his right knee. A vocal minority have speculated that perhaps this team might be better off without the services of the All-Star point guard, a notion the coach dismissed quickly on Thursday. “That’s silly,” Rivers said. “The bottom line is that you’d rather have him. But we...

Celtics 99, Kings 81

The Celtics lost Rajon Rondo for the season. They haven't lost since. Boston improved to 2-0 since Rondo's season-ending knee injury with a 99-81 win over the Sacramento Kings as Paul Pierce led a balanced attack with 16 points Wednesday night. Now the Celtics know they can be successful, in the short term anyway, without the player chosen as the starting point guard for...

Raptors Talking To Grizzlies About Rudy Gay

Much has been made of the Memphis Grizzlies and whether they will deal Rudy Gay before the trade deadline. Although a good player a big part of the team, new ownership is looking to shred salary, and Gay is vastly overpaid with a maximum contract. There has been plenty of speculation, with tons of potential landing destinations being tossed around. They recently made a trade with...

Celtics guard Rajon Rondo will miss the rest of the season

Rudy Gay: “I Can’t Even Get A Phone Call?”

Six-year veteran, Rudy Gay, has spent his entire NBA career with Memphis so I guess he was a little shocked when the Grizzlies couldn’t even call to inform him of the trade sending him to Toronto: According to Ronald Tillery, Commercial Appeal: [Rudy] Gay said Grizzlies CEO Jason Levien nor anyone from team’s new management team called him to reveal trade.  “I can’t even...

With trade rumors flying, Gay pushes Grizzlies past 76ers

PHILADELPHIA -- Memphis Grizzlies forward Rudy Gay remains the subject of trade rumors. He also remains unbothered. "Right now I'm a Grizzly," he said, "and I'm going to play like I'm a Grizzly." His follow shot with 13.9 seconds left Monday night put Memphis ahead to stay, and the Grizzlies went on to beat the Philadelphia 76ers 103-100. Gay...

The Memphis Grizzlies and the Toronto Raptors are engaged in trade talks regarding the Grizzlies’ high priced, but extremely talented, small forward, Rudy Gay. The talks have revolved around Jose Calderon and his expiring contract along with talented power forward, Ed Davis, for Gay. However the Grizzlies do not want Calderon and are currently looking for another team to complete...

Wake Me Up When the Snow Melts

As that monkey struck every key on his typewriter trying to re-create a classic novel for C. Montgomery Burns, he put into words what a mere human could not, “It was the best of times, it was the blurst of times.” Well said, highly intelligent super-ape. For a little more than decade, January in Boston has been somewhat of a miserable bliss. The weather has been miserable while...

Should Boston get involved in Rudy Gay to Toronto trade; acquire Calderon?

A blockbuster trade is in the works and it doesn’t involve Boston, yet. Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski has reported Memphis and Toronto are a third team away from sending Rudy Gay, and the three years and $37 million left on his contract, to the Raptors. This puts to an end the Rudy Gay for Paul Pierce trade rumors. Since the Grizzles brought in new front office personnel...
