No Guts, No Glory:
Ken Berger of CBS Sports reported last night that the Los Angeles Lakers and Boston Celtics have had “preliminary discussion” regarding a trade that would send Rajon Rondo to the Lakers and Dwight Howard to the Celtics. This despite what we’ve heard from both organizations regarding their young stars.
Earlier this month, Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak told the LA Times that, “We will not trade Dwight Howard. We have no intention of making a trade”. And both Celtics President Danny Ainge and Celtics Doc Rivers spent all last season denying that they were shopping Rondo.
With all that said, of course minds can change. Especially since the two organizations were reportedly engaged in discussions in March about a Rondo-Pau Gasol swap. Which eventually broke down because the Lakers wouldn’t give up Gasol. So there may be evidence that the Celtics at least are willing to part ways with Rondo. But according to Berger, there are still two “significant impediments” to a Howard-Rondo deal.
BEST OF MAXIM
When Dwight Howard is not happy, the rumors fly like bodies at a bullfight.
What we can do is prepare to consistently breakdown the difference between reality and the wishful thinking among those that live for dream scenarios.

As the trade deadline looms, the Celtics' future is uncertain. In the wake of Rajon Rondo's ACL tear and the announcement that he would be done for the season, many presumed that the Celtics were done for the season. Many said the team should blow it up and start to rebuild.
Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers was not among those doubters. Rivers said to the media in a...

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 “anonymous sources” are about to work overtime.
Even by the usual crazy standards of trade deadline season, though, Friday’s report that the Celtics and Lakers had engaged in preliminary talks for...
Dwight Howard says he be surprised if he is traded by next week’s deadline because Lakers’ 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 weren’t going to trade me, that’s what Mitch said, so I would be surprised.
Rajon Rondo underwent successful surgery to repair his "torn" ACL this past Tuesday, and there is already talk about him making a quick return. Doc Rivers spoke with the media about Rondo, and joked that he could possibly make a quick return like NFL player Adrian Peterson.

The Celtics are conducting âpreliminary
talksâ with the Los Angeles Lakers about swapping
Rajon Rondo for Dwight Howard, according to
CBSSports.comâs Ken Berger. While Berger points
out that the deal âhasnât gained
any traction,â 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 “rumors” seriously. You may not agree with Stephen A. Smith on 1st Take, but he isn’t prone to just making up stuff he doesn’t believe in true.
No Guts, No Glory tracked down this audio from Stephen A. saying that Dwight Howard told Rudy Gay he is going to be in Brooklyn next year.
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 it’s 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...
The Los Angeles Lakers have reportedly engaged in preliminary trade discussions with the Boston Celtics in regard of players Dwight Howard and Rajon Rondo, which Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak denied.
Ken Berger first reported
Although it hasn’t exactly slowed them down, the injury bug struck again in Boston, as Leandro Barbosa became the latest in a disconcertingly long line of Celtics who will miss the remainder of the 2012-13 campaign with an injury. Will it be enough to slow the momentum the franchise has built over the course of the past few weeks, gaining traction in the Eastern Conference and...
