The NY Post's Peter Vecsey is the latest to stir the pot:
If the Lakers indeed are interested in signing Rasheed Wallace — a logical step-down from flirting with Gilbert Arenas—it lends credence to the Rajon Rondo/Jermaine O’Neal-Pau Gasol swap I keep hearing. Lord knows they’re desperate for a point guard and Rondo is exceedingly obtainable and Kobe Bryant loves his “any means possible” style.
Gasol is an extremely talented big man, but I don't like this trade. I realize size is a premium in the NBA, but... alright, I'll admit it... Gasol's appearance creeps me out. I can't get past it.
How would this deal affect the Celtics salary cap? Gasol's contract runs for two more years at $19 million per season.
Danny Ainge will still have the cap space created by the expiring contracts of Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and others.
And as the Herald's Steve Bulpett points out, Ainge has the option of using the amnesty clause on Paul Pierce's contract if he&...

Rondo, totally sick of media, deadpans: "I don't want to start any trade rumors but Kendrick Perkins is getting traded back to the Celtics."— Ben Golliver (@blazersedge) February 24, 2012
So.. this is kind of out of left field. Who knows how much credence there is to this, knowing Rondo he was probably kidding. The Perk trade certainly has not gone away as a topic...
Rajon Rondo tossed a half court alley-oop to LeBron James during tonight's All-Star game in the video above. That assist was just one out of 8 dimes for Rondo, who played fifteen and a half minutes and notched 2 rebounds and 2 points as well.
Thanks to NESportz from the shoutbox for sharing the video.
Rajon Rondo give the Celtics the best chance to make the playoffs, but do Celtics fans really want to get to there?
If you are a fan of the Boston Celtics and are currently happy with this basketball team, raise your hand now.

Oh, no one is happy. Can’t say I’m surprised by that.
Currently, the Boston Celtics sit at 15-17, good for the...
Celtics nation is buzzing about the rumored Rajon Rondo (and Jermaine O'Neal) for Pau Gasol trade.
In an effort to bring clarity and reason to this debate, John and I have decided to lay out a case for each side.
Here are my 5 reasons why the Celtics should make the deal*:

The NBA suspended Rajon Rondo for two games on Monday. The suspension came after...
Paul Pierce and Rajon Rondo recently said the Celtics had to become more disciplined defending.
CLEVELAND - The Celtics were in the midst of their best stretch of the season - nine wins in 10 games - when they split back-to-back matchups with the Cavaliers late last month. In both contests - an 88-87 home loss and 93-90 away win - the Celtics played without Rajon Rondo and struggled to match up with rookie guard Kyrie Irving.
