A few days ago, we posted an article about Jason Terry's description of Rajon Rondo's really bizarre pre-game ritual:
"(Rajon Rondo's) routine is long-winded and it lasts all the way through tip-off.
It starts in the back hallway. He runs down a corridor and he throws the
ball to our team chaplain, who throws it back. Then [Rondo] runs out
into a circle, high-fives the whole team and then he does the layup
lines for five minutes.
"Then he will stand under the goal and Paul Pierce
will shoot every ball on the rack from half court. Rondo will catch
four balls at one time and then after that, it's just amazing -- one
pass off the backboard to KG, one bounce pass to Paul Pierce and then he throws it all the way up to the scoreboard and Jeff Green finishes with an alley-oop."
Many people thought JET might be joking, but a couple of Celtics Life readers stepped up and emailed a video and some photos they took of Rondo's routine.

Here are highlights from Rondo's performance during the game yesterday against the Chicago Bulls. Rondo dropped 30 points on 12-21 shooting, along with making 6-9 free throws. His efforts were unfortunately put to waste when the team lost in OT, 100-99. This was Rondo's season-high.

I am not even sure why I continue to post these videos because nothing Rajon Rondo does anymore impresses me. I feel as though he has already accomplished everything in the NBA and performed every type of pass ever that there is no way he can create a new pass. Keep Calm and Rajon.

After Rajon Rondo called out his teammates for not taking losses as hard as they probably should, there’s more coming out about the state of the C’s locker room.
The Celtics are a team — and that’s not counting Rajon Rondo, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett — that believes because they are Celtics, because Rivers is the coach, and because the organization has been successful...
Here we are, winners of 6 out of our last 10 games and trying to right our ship, lets see what the writers from Celticslife think in our newest addiction of 5 on 5:
1. The Celtics have been playing really well lately (other then that stinker the other night). What has been the difference?
Terry P: Jeff Green. Now look, I have been hard on him PLENTY and still want to trade his...
Celtics drop a tough one at home on Friday night, falling 100-99 in OT to the Bulls.

Tip-off at the Palace is at 7:30pm EST tomorrow.

The Celtics again didn't play well against the Pistons and lost a game they deserved to lose. They came out with a terrible effort that made them fall behind by as many as 11. They never recovered from their horrible first quarter and lost with a fight. They came back to tie it late in the first half but it wasn't enough. During the third quarter, the Pistons started hitting...
After being down 27-18 after the first quarter, the Celtics cut the deficit to 4 points at the half. The Pistons then proceeded to outscore the Celtics 29-13 in the 3rd and 22-17 in the 4th.
Kevin Garnett and Courtney Lee both scores 16 points, a game high, and Rajon Rondo flirted with a triple double, notching 8 points, 9 rebounds, and 15 assists. Box score below, highlights...
The Celtics, coming off their really tough loss to the Bulls, will play another central division team when they visit the Pistons Sunday night. Friday night's loss to Chicago was excruciating to fans. It was, in my opinion, the toughest loss to endure since game 7 of the 2010 finals. But, life(and the schedule) must go on. So here's tomorrow's five things:
5. GET SOMEBODY...
The Boston Celtics matched the New England Patriots and lost by 15 points Sunday night.
The Detroit Pistons defended their home court by lowering a 103-88 beating on the visitors.
While the loss wasn't quite as meaningful as the Patriots' season-ending AFC Championship loss, it was another depressing effort for the Celtics.
After a tough overtime loss against the Chicago...
8 a.m. ET: Go ahead and try to figure out these Celtics, because all our attempts thus far have failed. They head to Cleveland on a three-game losing streak, and not even the dire situation in which the Cavaliers find themselves is enough to convince us that the Celtics will take care of business.
The Cavs (10-32) are reeling from Monday’s news that center Anderson Varejao, who...
There are a lot of labels that come with having a veteran core. Patience, intelligence, consistency, etc. Composure is a word that pops up a lot too. "Young teams find it hard to close out games, they lack composure". Now the Celtics have a veteran core, a fact that is constantly repeated, but do they have the composure that seemingly is supposed to come with it? I wouldn...
According to Comcast SportsNet New England, Avery Bradley will try to participate in today's shootaround before the game against the Detroit Pistons, and subsequently see if he will be able to play through the pain of his rib injury that he sustained against the Hornets.
Avery Bradley's status for tonight's game against Detroit is still up in
the air, though the 6...
