OK, Internet. This is your time. Less than one full week remains before the NBA trade deadline, and now is the time when all semblance of sanity flies out of the window. So-called âanonymous sourcesâ are about to work overtime.
Even by the usual crazy standards of trade deadline season, though, Fridayâs report that the Celtics and Lakers had engaged in preliminary talks for a swap of Rajon Rondo for Dwight Howard caused tremors. The possibility of the two biggest rivals in the game exchanging their best players under the age of 30 is a shocking development, even if Rondo is out for the season with a torn ligament in his right knee and Howard has played well below his capabilities all season.
So, go crazy with this one. Shut down the servers that support the ESPN Trade Machine and tweet your availability either to drive Rondo to the airport or to drive Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge off a pier, depending on how this trade sounds to the diehards. Just keep in m...

With Rajon Rondo out for a year and Dwight Howard a free agent after this year many speculate a Dwight and Rondo swap.
Lakers GM strongly denied the story:
âI havenât talked to Danny Ainge in weeks,â Kupchak told ESPN The Magazineâs Chris Broussard. âI made the statement a week or two ago that weâre not going to trade Dwight Howard and that hasnât changed.â
Dwight Howard says he be surprised if he is traded by next weekâs deadline because Lakersâ GM, Mitch Kupchak told him he will not be traded.
According to NBA TV:
Reporter: Would you be surprised if the Lakers traded you?
Dwight Howard: Would I be surprised? They told me they werenât going to trade me, thatâs what Mitch said, so I would be surprised.

talksĂ˘ÂÂ with the Los Angeles Lakers about swapping
Rajon Rondo for Dwight Howard, according to

out that the deal Ă˘ÂÂhasnĂ˘ÂÂt gained
any traction,Ă˘ÂÂ it seems like, at the very least,
the Lakers and Celtics are talking about the possibility of trading
two of their biggest stars.
The Lakers might want to start taking some of these ârumorsâ seriously. You may not agree with Stephen A. Smith on 1st Take, but he isnât prone to just making up stuff he doesnât believe in true.

Here is the exact quote from Stephen A...
As of late, the injury gods have not been kind to the Celtics. First Rajon Rondo is gone for the season with a torn ACL along with Jared Sullinger who has a bad back and needs surgery. Now, less than a month later itâs Leandro Barbosa, also with a torn ACL, and Paul Pierce with a pinched nerve.
Luckily, these injuries have not seemed to heavily impact the success of the team so...
