New Celtics coach Brad Stevens said recently that his star point guard has been working hard to come back from his ACL tear, whenever that may be.
This is from Jay King at MassLive:
I told him, whenever he feels best and is ready to be back, we'll support him and we'll be happy that he's back," Stevens said Friday at Holland Elementary School in Dorchester, where the Celtics teamed up with the Harvard Pilgrim Health Care Foundation for a community event.
Stevens said no date has been established for Rondo's return. In fact, the coach said he hasn't even asked the question in "a couple of weeks."
Stevens went on to talk about Rondo's outlook for the upcoming season from his discussions with No. 9.
"My general sense is he's really excited," said Stevens. "He's excited about the challenge of a new season. He's excited about the challenge of a new situation. He seems to be excited. I don't want to speak for him an...

Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo will likely miss all of the preseason as well as some regular season games, according to CSNNE.com. Rondo suffered a torn right ACL on Jan. 25. The knee was surgically repaired
Marc D'Amico interviewed Phil Pressey this week as training camp is just around the corner. Pressey is in a rather favorable position. Right now he's the only healthy true point guard on the roster, so not only does he have a solid shot at making the roster, but he could very well play minutes early in his Celtics career. If he sticks he also will get the chance to learn...
Tim MacLean (@TimMacLean_) Predicting what the 2013-14 campaign has in store for Rajon Rondo is a bit tricky. At this point in the offseason we still aren’t sure when he’ll be ready to suit up and, as recent as today, the Celtics still have “no timetable” for his return. But given the state of this team, Rondo should be in no rush to get back on the floor with his teammates...
I suggest you imagine the trailer voice guy reading the title, it becomes much scarier that way.
Oh, and before it's too late, you can un-throw up in your mouth because this is not a quote from Brad Stevens or any other Celtic. It's directly from the invincible Crawford himself.

Kris Humphries has been called a lot of things by Celtics fans, both before and after his trade to the Cs on July 12th. And most of them have not been good.
After all, he is the man who got into a fight with Rajon Rondo and then complained about the scratch marks afterwards. He's also the dude who married Kim Kardashian. Which means you need to question every decision he makes...
Kris Humphries has spent the summer working on his game and says he is ready "to compete for a big role" on his new team, the Boston Celtics.
Humphries has heard talk that the Celtics are trying to tank next season, but he does not want to be part of that situation and does not believe that is where Boston is headed.
"I'm not looking to be a part of a tanking situation...
Last month, WEEI announced that they would no longer be broadcasting Celtics games after the two sides could not reach agreement. At the time it was speculated that the other radio power in the city, 98.5 The Sports Hub, would pounce at the chance to add the Celtics. After all, the station already owns broadcast rights to the Patriots and Bruins, and by adding a 3rd team they could...
Imagine having a 3 year contract for $300,000 in 1978 from the Celtics. Imagine being at their summer camp in August and then just disappearing. It sounds like a weird dream or a tale based on the Bermuda Triangle (or something involving a guy from WTHHT). But it's totally real and totally happened to Joe Pace.
To quote the famous Bob Ryan "they said he had possessed...

Boston Celtics guard Jordan Crawford is known for a nice dunk on LeBron James during a summer camp run, and for getting ethered by La La Anthony after a Knicks vs Celtics game.

Rivers acknowledged that the 2011 Kendrick Perkins-Jeff Green trade was a mistake that ultimately hurt Garnett.

When it went down Celtics fans were up in arms — Boston traded Kendrick Perkins to Oklahoma City mainly for Jeff Green. Danny Ainge’s name suddenly came with a new adjective for Boston fans and it’s one we can’t repeat here.
Since then Boston has defended the trade and as Perkins’ production has slipped some of the anger dissipated.
Doc Rivers now admits it was a mistake...
Brothers? Blake Griffin and Kris Humphries get mistaken for each other all of the time
I wonder what Blake Griffin secretly thinks when someone calls him Kris Humphries? Of course Griffin would never openly admit to what he is thinking when called “Kris Humphries,” but one could assume he probably isn’t too thrilled with it. Humphries on the other hand, probably loves it.
There has been a lot of speculation on what kind of rotation
the Celtics will have this year. I think
the best answer is that they will go round and round. By that I mean that I think the question is
incomplete. The pertinent omission is

first game of each month will not likely be the same rotation as used in the
first game of the...
