The NBA suspended Rajon Rondo for two games on Monday. The suspension came after Rondo tossed a ball at an official, receiving a double-technical and ejection in Sunday's loss to the Pistons.
The Celtics lost both games Rondo missed, and the local media – in particular sports radio – has ranted almost unceasingly about the point guard: He has no discipline. He can't be coached. He's a bum. Trade him.
No one, I notice, seems interested in why Rondo's acting out. Everyone just sees a problem, and they want it excised immediately.
While no fanbase likes to lose, Boston sports fans (and media) hate to get beaten. We hate admitting that another team either played be...

Rajon Rondo will have more responsibility representing the Boston Celtics this All-Star weekend as he has been chosen to fill in for Stephen Curry in the Taco Bell NBA Skills Challenge. Curry, the defending champion, is out with a strained tendon in his right foot.
Rondo will be competing against Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving, San Antonio’s Tony Parker, Washington’s John Wall,...
Green Rondo ala Quirk. Rajon Rondo's oddity is quirky to say the least.
ORLANDO (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) In a story that is quickly overshadowing the Western Conference’s 152-149 victory in the NBA All-Star Game, Rajon Rondo stunned teammates when the Celtics guard revealed he has an extra appendage just to the left of his penis.
“Yeah man, I really didn’t...
It looks like Celtics fans have something to look forward to on All Star Saturday after all. Last year we had Ray and Paul shooting it out in the 3 point contest. This year it didn't appear that there would be any Celtics entrants in the Saturday festivities. But today, Rajon Rondo was named to replace Stephen Curry in the Skills Challenge.
In case you have forgotten...
According to Peter Vecsey of the NY Post, the Lakers would be more than interested in acquiring Rajon Rondo from the Celtics.
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...
Does anyone still watch the Skills Challenge? I mean, seriously. What's the point of this thing? Does dribbling around stationary objects, throwing a ball through a tire and making a layup really prove anything? Is anyone astounded by the "skills" displayed in the Skills Challenge? It's about as relevant as the 2Ball contest was. If you remember 2Ball, you&...
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.
8 a.m.: Rajon Rondo presumably returns from his two-game sabbatical (actually, he returned for the skills competition and the NBA All-Star Game) on Tuesday as the Celtics visit the Cavaliers. Things have gone much better for the Cavs since the last time the Celtics saw them. When the Celtics opened a home-and-home set against the Cavs back in January, Cleveland was on a string of...

Not even the All-Star Game's lack of defensive intensity could shake Pierce from his season-long shooting slump. He missed seven of the eight shots he put up, connecting on a first-half 3-pointer for his...
John Wall came in fourth place behind champion Tony Parker, Rajon Rondo and Deron Williams in the Skills Challenge on All-Star Saturday in Orlando, improving upon his fifth-place last season. But that didn’t mean that there wasn’t another slightly embarrassing moment to go along with Greg Monroe pulling out a rug from under him late in the Rising Stars Challenge.

The two big rumors in the NBA this weekend were Rajon Rondo to the Lakers for Pau Gasol and an imminent Dwight Howard to the Lakers trade, which was denied by the Magic. Dwight Howard is the Lakers main target. So far they have offered Bynum to the Magic for him, which the Magic turned down. The Magic want both Bynum and Gasol for Howard and Hedo's poison pill contract, which...

Unfortunately it's more bad news for the Celtics, as they could not pick up a win this week. They have now lost five in a row and seven out of their last eight. They head into the all-star break sitting in eigth place in the Eastern Conference.
They have been dealing with injuries lately and Rajon Rondo had a two game suspension to add insult to injury. Kevin Garnett...
