There was all kinds of bad blood on the court in Miami to open the NBA season last night. Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen, Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo, Rajon Rondo and the entire Miami Heat team. With that bad blood there was no lack of excitement. First there was Garnett giving Allen the cold shoulder when he attempted to greet him on the sidelines and then there was Rondo’s flagrant foul on Wade in the final seconds of the game that caused Wade to raise the ball over his head like he was going to throw it at him. “I got my kids watching so I stopped myself but it was a punk play by him,” said Wade, who had a team-best 29 points in the win. “He clotheslined me.” He also probably remembered that he has Gabrielle Union waiting at him for him after the game, who tweeted beforehand in cheering on her boyfriend, “LET’S GET IT!”.

On this day- Rajon Rondo gets career high 24 assists

ESPN Boxscore On this day today (October 29th in 2010), Rajon Rondo had the second most assists in a game ever by a Celtic with 24 (Bob Cousy had 28 in a game in 1959), in a win over the New York Knicks.

Rajon Rondo fires back at Dwyane Wade, calls him out for ‘dirty plays’

Rajon Rondo was called for a flagrant foul during the Miami Heat’s win over the Boston Celtics after he wrapped Dwyane Wade up to prevent him from walking in for a layup. It was somewhat of a hard foul as Rondo certainly wasn’t playing the ball, and Wade ripped Rondo after the game and called it a “punk play.” Not surprisingly, Rondo saw it differently. In fact, he thinks...

Rajon Rondo's flagrant foul is a bad sign for Celtics.

Rajon Rondo is up to his old tricks. And when I say old tricks, I mean his typical, almost teenage-like borish behavior.

I even like Rondo. He's the closest thing to a true point guard...

Dwyane Wade Takes Exception to Rajon Rondo's Hard Foul, Says It Was 'a Punk Play'

It's a good thing that Dwyane Wade plays in the NBA these days, and not on the schoolyard, or even the local YMCA. The Heat guard was the victim of a somewhat innocuous, yet hard foul from Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo late in Miami's 120-107 win Tuesday night. As Wade drove by Rondo, the Boston guard grabbed Wade -- admittedly high -- and slowed him down, but not pulling...
