Whether it’s close friend Rajon Rondo, Jarrett Jack, or other basketball colleagues, Memphis Grizzlies forward Rudy Gay has been leaning on his circle of NBA friends to get him through recent trade speculation. While Rondo, according to Gay, is giving sound advice, the Boston Celtics guard can’t help being a little selfish. “It’s hard to talk to [Rondo] because he is always saying, ‘We need you over here. We need you over here,’ ” Gay said. “So it’s not easy talking to him. But he’s being a friend, just telling me about keeping everything together and he makes you feel like you are still valuable.” via Marc J. Spears, Yahoo! Sports

Chad Ford: Celtics may trade Rondo, would be "shocked" if they don't make a move

Yet again, Rajon Rondo has been brought up as possible trade bait and maybe it's time to strongly consider moving him. In a chat on espn.com Wednesday, NBA writer Chad Ford said this about the Celtics making a trade: Yes I would put them up there with the Rockets, Grizzlies and Lakers as the most active teams right now. I'd be shocked if they didn't get something done...

Celtkicks: Rajon Rondo’s new Nike Hyperfuse low 2012

The Nike Hyperfuse has been a favorite of Rondo’s for the past few seasons. Wednesday night against the Suns at TD Garden, he broke out a new pair-the Hyperfuse 2012 low. They feature a green upper, Nike’s famous “Fuse” technology throughout, a white swoosh on each side/toe box & Rajon’s logo on the tongue. The Hyperfuse low just started appearing on NBA athletes and...

Rondo: "I get suspended for a phone hang-up and people just get away with anything"

Before last night's bench-inspired win over Phoenix, Rajon Rondo had some things to say about his suspension and the KG/Carmelo/breakfast cereal incident: Oh man, I get suspended for a phone hang-up and people just get away with anything in this league. Oh my goodness, so that’s the same thing, huh? That's in regards to hearing Carmelo Anthony also got a 1 game suspension...

Trading Rajon Rondo Would Create New Problems for Celtics Without Necessarily Solving Existing Problems

BOSTON — Rajon Rondo contends he does not like to miss games, which makes it more than a little confounding whenever he commits an on-court transgression that is sure to get him suspended. For a guy who prides himself on never taking a night off, getting into it with referees would seem to go against that goal. When Celtics coach Doc Rivers recently suggested that fines should...

Rudy Gay Says Rajon Rondo Wants Him in Boston

I realize that we’ve been reporting on Rudy Gay trade rumors like we’re ESPN covering Tim Tebow, but here’s a nice quote from Rudy Gay himself on the response he’s been getting from other players when he speaks with them about all of the trade talk (courtesy of SlamOnline.com via Yahoo! Sports): “It’s hard to talk to [Rondo] because he is always saying, ‘We need you...

Rajon Rondo Annoyed With NBA, Referees, Media, Feels They Contribute to Negative Reputation

BOSTON — Rajon Rondo is not one to mask his emotions, so he did not try to hide how perturbed he was when he was told Wednesday about the length of Carmelo Anthony‘s suspension. As Rondo prepared to make his return from a one-game suspension for bumping a referee and then, in the league’s words, “failing to cooperate with a league investigation,” he was informed that the...

Memphis Grizzlies shopping Rudy Gay?

Reports would indicate that the Memphis Grizzlies are shopping small forward, Rudy Gay.

The Grizz, who currently sit 2nd in the West’s Southwest division (22-10) behind...

Carmelo Anthony Suspended 1 Game and Rondo Reacts

Carmelo Anthony has been suspended one game for waiting outside the Celtics' locker room and bus to confront Kevin Garnett after Monday's game in New York. The scuttlebutt around was that KG had made a comment about Melo's wife concerning Honey Nut Cheereos. But KG has denied trash talking LaLa and said that his comments were basketball related. Rondo, witty as always...

Rudy Gay To Toronto?

Man, that would suck. Everything that Toronto touches, turns to ass. And Rudy Gay is a fun player to watch, but things could change if Toronto has their way: “Sources told ESPN.com this week that the Raptors — who tried to make a play for Gay before the 2012 NBA Draft — remain seriously “interested” in the Grizzlies’ leading scorer and are trying to assemble trade packages...

Resilient Grizzlies upend Spurs in OT behind Gay, Conley

MEMPHIS -- The Memphis Grizzlies don't blink.Not even when they are deluged with increasing trade rumors involving Rudy Gay.

Not even when San Antonio point guard Tony Parker nailed a 3-point buzzer beater to send Friday's game into overtime. ...

Rudy Gay trade talk, Samardo Samuels, and Patrick Ewing's Kneepads

The news that Samardo Samuels had been waived by the Cavaliers this weekend was a major bummer. I enjoyed Samardo playing in Cleveland over the last few years and will miss having him around.  On the Stepien Rules Facebook page I went into more detail this morning. I only bring it up here, too, in order to enter these sentiments for the record. The Rudy Gay...
