It's over. The case is closed. Any trade talk involving Rajon Rondo has to cease, and if the Celtics aim to improve their team before Thursday's trade deadline, they had better investigate other avenues than trading their 26-year-old point guard. Rondo's performance Monday cemented his status as the fulcrum of the Celtics' machine. If you didn't stay up to watch the Celtics' 94-85 win over the Clippers, you may look at Rondo's 12 points, 10 assists and three steals as nothing special. As a line in the box score, it's nowhere near the category of his 18-point, 17-rebound, 20-assist triple-double...
BEST OF MAXIM
Or at least, so he says. Rondo's been known to mess with people before.
"I was actually serious, I talked to coach Belichick about that but I had a contract already with the Celtics so it didn't work out," Rondo told ABC.
Rondo WAS at a Patriots practice throwing the football around this past summer. And frankly, even if he is messing with the media...
A number of Boston Celtics players will continue to be the subject of trade rumors up until the 3 p.m. deadline on Thurday.
But there's one player that isn't going anywhere - Rajon Rondo.
"Rondo's not being traded," Danny Ainge, Boston's president of basketball operations, told CSNNE.com prior to the Celtics facing the Los Angeles Clippers. "...
Celtics PG Rajon Rondo attempted to sport his shades on Sunday to no avail as the referees told him they were too dark to be worn during the game. Geez refs, you want him to look like Horace Grant or Antoine Carr instead? Let him be swagged out. Rondo had had 24 points and 10 assists as Boston fell to the Lakers 97-94. Rondo was poked in the eye Friday against the Blazers and...
LIKE A WHIRLING DERVISH
We interrupt your regularly scheduled trade rumors to bring you a ridiculous, spin-o-rama, behind-the-back pass from Rajon Rondo to Ray Allen.
That’s purdy. Real purdy.
I just don’t understand why the Boston Celtics would consider exchanging Rajon Rondo for Pau Gasol. But the trade rumor has persisted in several media outlets, the latest being the LA Times. Oddly enough, according to the Times, it’s the Lakers who turned down the trade.The teams talked last week about a trade for Celtics guard Rajon Rondo, though nothing was close to accomplished...
Before the start of last night's Clippers/Celtics affair, ESPN did their usual look-in to the locker room and caught Celtics guard Rajon Rondo chowing down on a pregame meal.
Rondo's food of choice happened to sushi and that amused the ESPN broadcast team of Hubie Brown and Mike Tirico:
Rajon Rondo wand the Boston Celtics were in LA for their big game against the Lakers and Rajon Rondo decided to imitate Jack Nicholson during warm-ups. Nice shades.
Yes, we are aware he is wearing protective shades for an eye injury.

In the non-trade trade news department.
The Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics hate each other, an animosity that extends into the front offices of the two teams. …Not really. The teams talked last week about a trade for Celtics guard Rajon Rondo, though nothing was close to accomplished and discussions dried up. The Lakers are unwilling to trade Pau Gasol for Rondo, making...
Color me skeptical... but's out there.
While Boston Celtics boss Danny Ainge has said Rajon Rondo will not be traded, he is still actively seeking offers for members of the Big Three. The Celtics offered Paul Pierce to Portland -- I'm not sure what they asked for in return -- but the Blazers were not interested because of the two years and $32 million remaining...

Trade or not to trade Rajon Rondo
It’s that time of year again. The trade deadline is right around the corner. Rumors are flying. GMs and personnel executives are lying through their teeth and asking far too much from their peers for players who are more times than not overpaid and not worth it. Mel Gibson in Lethal...
Reports have surfaced that the Los Angeles Lakers turneddown a trade for Boston Celtics’ point guard Rajon Rondo because they didn’twant to trade forward Pau Gasol. Sad because Rondo would have made the Lakersway more dangerous than Gasol could at this point. Here are five reasons why:THE AGE FACTORRondo is nearly five years younger than Gasol and would be agreat player for Andrew...
9:30 a.m. ET: Celtics fans are in for another late night as their team travels to Oakland, Calif., on Wednesday to take on the Golden State Warriors. Kevin Garnett is no doubt looking forward to this game, because for the first time in three games he won't have an All-Star big man to contain. The Warriors (18-21) are more outside-oriented than the Celtics' recent foes, with...

This one looked like a classic 2011-2012 Celtics game.... come out big, suck in the 2nd, show some signs of life, blow it in the last 5 minutes.
But instead of following the script in the last 5 minutes, the Celtics went on a 20-7 run.

Struggles on the road are one reason the Boston Celtics aren't in their customary position atop the Atlantic Division.
A visit to the Los Angeles Clippers may have spelled more trouble earlier in the season, but it doesn't look so intimidating right now.
