Found March 27, 2012 on The Awesome Boston:
PLAYERS: Rajon Rondo
TEAMS: Boston Celtics

A.B. I thought this was illegal to do so I spoke to a basketball expert the kid in the next cube over who played college ball and he looked at me like I was crazy. Apparently you can dribble off any body part as long as you don’t travel. I was too busy playing hockey growing up to learn that one I guess. But what was the point of Rondo head-butting the ball before going up the court? Superstition? Tourettes? Random act of weirdness? So I figured I would post it and let the readers chime in with their theories. Plus there wasn’t a person in the world watching the beginning of a Bobcats, Celtics game in March – so like me, you definitely missed this live.

Video: Rajon Rondo’s crazy, whirling assist

In case you care about these types of statistics that mean little yet explain a lot, Rajon Rondo has now reached double-figure assists in 11 straight contests, the most since Steve Nash accomplished the same feat in 2009. Earlier in the season Rondo displayed a level of inconsistency, which was troublesome because he has become such a crucial cog in Boston lineup. There were also...

Rajon Rondo is fancy huh

Props to Celticslife for putting this video up for me to see.  This makes me look back at all Rondo moments and ask, is there anyone fancier than Rajon Rondo?  I doubt it.  His clothing swag is even top notch. My next question is, do Kevin and Rondo prep for these?  See more videos after the jump.

Your Morning Dump... Where Rondo likes running with Bradley

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. “I’m happy to play with him,” Rondo said. “He’s a great listener. He wants to get better each day and he’s working hard. If I get a little winded I try to get Avery to bring it up. I also try...

Taking Stock: Celtics - Wizards

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters Rajon Rondo: Rondo gave a ton of effort for all but the last few minutes of the first half... and then none but the last few minutes of the second half.  Maybe he was trying to expend as little energy as possible as the C's head into a very difficult...

Rajon Rondo ball fakes make Paul Millsap dizzy

  Here's the proper way to watch this video. Step 1:  Watch it all the way through and be amazed at Rondo's control of the ball and ability to spot his man. Step 2:  Watch it again but focus on Paul Millsap (#24).  At the beginning of the video, he's at the top of the key to Rondo's left.  Step 3:  Offer Paul Millsap Dramamine for the...

Why doesn't Noah gets suspended like Rondo did?

Over the weekend, Joakim Noah threw the ball at a ref, and then, if you read his lips, started singing a little Cee Lo Green to him. "I see you wait for the miss to call a foul on me and I'm like.. F yoouuuuuuu" Here's the video.   So we have Noah, clearly throwing the ball at a ref in frustration after a tech is called.  You have him...

Pass of the year

So I was searching through old posts and I couldn’t find any posts about Rajon Rondo’s AMAZING pass he made a couple weeks ago against the Warriors. Personally, and I’m sure you guys will agree, that this is the pass of the year for sure. People need to understand how hard of a pass this is to make: ^That pass is almost as good as his magical pass he made during this summer...

Unlike Rondo, Joakim Noah doesn't receive suspension for throwing ball at ref

On Saturday night, Joakim Noah was ejected from the Chicago Bulls - Toronto Raptors game after he threw the ball at an official.See the video above for the incident. Noah was fined $8,000, but will not be suspended by the league. This differs from the penalties that Rajon Rondo received when he tossed the ball at a ref during the Boston-Detroit game earlier this season. Rondo was...

Recap: C's beat Jazz, make it 3 in a row

I have not seen a better 1st half from the Boston Celtics in a long time. Everything was clicking; Rondo was driving and dishing, Pierce was attacking, KG was nailing jumpers and everyone was playing great defense. The C's held the Jazz to 37% from the field, and only turned the ball over 2 times. Rondo and Ryan Hollins connected on 2 alley-oops, and the C's went into...

Taking Stock: Celtics - Bobcats

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters Rajon Rondo:  This has become his typical game now.  Single-digit points and big assists.  13 assists is awesome, and the 1-7 shooting is misleading because he was forced to take a few shots as the shot clock wound down.  His 6 rebounds were also...

Enemy Chatter: Rondo's length, quickness were a problem

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Charlotte. The Bobcats' point guards were invisible (combined 1 of 13 from the field, 7 of 10 from the line, 8 assists and 6 turnovers). Both were noticeably bothered by Rajon Rondo's length...

Taking Stock: Celtics - Jazz

After every game, we'll take stock of how each individual performance affects the player's overall value. Starters Rajon Rondo:  Ho Hum, another double-digit assist night.  And as a bonus, 9 of his assists led to makes at the rim.  Very often, Rajon is assisting on long jumpers.  It's nice to see a more uptempo game where guys are getting dunks.  It'...

Celtics 94, Jazz 82

Kevin Garnett scored 23 points and added 10 rebounds, and Rajon Rondo had 14 assists to lead the Boston Celtics to a 94-82 victory over the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night. The win was Boston's fifth in six tries. The Celtics moved into a tie with the Philadelphia 76ers atop the Atlantic Division. Former Celtic Al Jefferson had 18 points and 12 rebounds for the Jazz, scoring 10...

NBA considering letting advertisers put logos on teams' jerseys

If you were watching the Celtics-Bobcats game tonight on NBA League Pass, during halftime the NBA aired a segment discussing the idea that advertisers might be allowed to put their logos on players' jerseys, like in NASCAR and other sports. I personally am not a fan of the advertising idea, but it did spark a rather funny discussion in the CelticsLife.com shoutbox about potential...
