Rajon Rondo is spending a lot of time this offseason working out at the University of Kentucky, where he once showed occasional signs of greatness but nothing near the (mostly) consistent brilliance he now displays in Boston. At Kentucky, Rondo has been under the watchful eye of John Calipari, who, truth be told, might be trying to recruit Rondo back to the sschool (wink, wink). Hey, why not? He’s probably just as eligible as most Calipari recruits.
Anyway, Calipari predicted a big season from Rondo after seeing how hard the C’s point guard works. (Kentucky Sports Report via Green Street)
“Right now, I can’t tell you how hard Rondo is working. It’s incredible. As this thing comes back, Rondo will have a knockout year, no question in my mind. They are going to look at who the heck is this guy in Boston because of how hard he’s working.”
Yeah, who the heck is this guy? He kind of looks and plays like that dude who averaged 11.2 assists per game last season, but, um, b...

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 know both sides haven't really come close to a final agreement, but there actually has been some progress in these NBA negotiations. Among the new elements of this deal are an amnesty clause, and a new "stretch" exception.
There will be a one-time “amnesty” provision that will allow each team to waive a player (with pay) without his salary counting against...
If Kevin Garnett has air in his lungs, you can bet he’s going to be intense. You already know on the court he’s like that and according to Adrian Wojnarowski at Yahoo! Sports during lockout negotiations, he’s liable to pick up a personal foul for taunting too.
This fight has grown nastier, more personal, in the past weeks. Privately, management insists that everything changed...
This week in What the Hell Happened To we remember former power forward, Sidney Wicks.
Wicks was a beast in college to say the least. In his 3 seasons UCLA went 86-4 and won 3 national titles. He helped bridge the gap between Lew Alcindor and Bill Walton.
However Wicks' dominant college game and team success did not translate into team success in the pros. The No. 2...
While the current NBA players are fighting for their rights in the form of this excruciating, seemingly never-ending lockout, we figured now was a great time to look back on one of the most unheralded pro bballers in history: former Philadelphia 76ers guard Andrew Toney.

When NBA labor talks broke down 17 days ago, the owners blamed it on Kevin Garnett. And Kobe Bryant and Paul Pierce, but mostly KG and his legendary glare. The two sides had been making progress in talks but those three NBA stars came in and drew a hard line at 53 percent of basketball…
