Boston Celtics: Should They Trade Rajon Rondo?
Do the Boston Celtics trade Rajon Rondo, or do they keep him? This has been the question that has been discussed among Boston fans since the end of January. Rondo has been with the Celtics since he was traded after being selected 21st overall in 2006 by the Phoenix Suns. Celtics coach, Doc Rivers has always liked Rondo’s hustle and tenacity, even though Rondo was a knucklehead and immature at first. He became the starting PG towards the middle of the 2006-2007 season and has not looked back.
Rondo was huge in their 2007-8 title season as he had the challenge of distributing to the New Big 3 in Boston (Pierce, Garnett, Allen), which is a lot to ask for a second year player. He helped them win an NBA title, no big deal and in every year since, he’s improved and become a true NBA superstar.
Last season, the Celtics had an improbable run and almost beat the Heat for another trip to the NBA Finals, which would have been the 3rd time in the “...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
With the playoffs quickly approaching and the Celtics seeding set in stone, there really is no reason to play their key guys other than get a rhythm going heading into the playoffs. That especially goes for the veterans.
The 35-year old Jason Terry for one missed the last game against Orlando. Apparently he could miss more than that with some "bothersome" legs.
Avery Bradley tried playing through his shoulder injuries but eventually had to leave the second round series against Philadelphia, had surgery and didn't return until January of this year.
The Game Changer is now one of the most important players on this Celtics team and sans Rondo, he will certainly be relied on if the Celtics dream of getting anywhere this post-season. ...

While preparing for an upcoming column, I stumbled across this emotional tribute to the original Boston Garden. I remember this actual report when it aired 2 decades ago. At the tender age of 14, I had the good fortune of visiting the original Boston Garden. Always looking so beautiful on television, the parquet floor glistened and the banners that crowded the Garden rafters made...
Celtics 120, Magic 88
The Celtics clinched the 7th seed in the East as Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce returned to action for a tune-up against the Magic. The C’s are now guaranteed to take on the New York Knicks in the first round of the Playoffs.
Jason Terry may have been correct when he quipped that the Magic were “terrible” on Friday night, and insinuated...
At least JET's trash talk didn't come back to bite him in this game. The terrible Magic lived up to their reputation. I'm with Orlando fans on this one, though. I really wish he's just be quiet. We don't need to give teams any added motivation. They all hate the Celtics enough already as it is. It sure was good to get a convincing victory for once...

Despite an inefficient night from Pierce, the Celtics pounded the Magic.Well, they did it. For better or worse, the Celtics have clinched the seventh seed in the Eastern Conference, thereby avoiding a first-round matchup with the Miami Heat. Instead, Boston will face the New York Knicks, a team which has had considerable success against the C’s throughout the season.But all of...
Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce, still hasn’t let go of the feelings of betrayal he felt was exhibited by former teammate and Miami Heat guard Ray Allen, when he took his beautiful jump shot to South Beach last summer.
According to a story via HoopsWorld, Pierce and Allen have yet to have a conversation, with the Celtics forward conceding that his feelings were hurt.

The Celtics-Heat rivalry has been strong ever since the self-proclaimed King James decided to famously take his talents to South Beach. Miami had the talent, but Boston had the experience—up until last year when the new big three, donning Miami red, captured the allusive NBA championship and Boston and Miami’s roles were immediately changed. Tonight will most definitely have...
Jeff Green is not afraid. The swing forward has been a matchup nightmare for Celtics opponents since finding his stride in the second half of the 2012-13 season, but he has been particularly effective against smaller lineups. As you can see in this video, when the Heat throw out a small lineup with Chris Andersen at the 5, Jeff makes posters. His emergence...
Sheed's bald spot is one of life's great mysteries
If you forgot about Rasheed Wallace, I wouldn't blame you.
There's the fact that he retired following Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals, and didn't play basketball for 28 months.
There's also the fact that a stress fracture in his foot seemed destined to end his return bid for the Knicks, appearing to end...
