How old is too old? The Boston Celtics could very well answer that question for us this season. Since the Celtics won the title in 2008, there has always been talk of the current season being the Big Three’s “last chance.” Experts said it two years ago when Boston lost in the NBA Finals. They also said it last season and many are going with it again this year. With Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce having turned 36, 35, and 34 this year, Boston’s “last chance” may have already slipped away. That is, unless, Rajon Rondo has something to say about it.
When rumors swirled over the winter that Danny Ainge was aggressively pursuing Chris Paul and was trying to sell the Hornets on Rondo, many believed Rondo’s days in Boston were numbered. Either he was going to be traded for CP3 or the rumors would have offended him to the point where he wanted out. Through the first two games of the season, it looks like the trade talks have done nothing but motivate the Celtics offensive ...
BEST OF MAXIM
The Boston Celtics are off to a 0 and 2 and in last night’s loss to the Miami Heat one player had a very embarrassing moment.
Celtics Rajon Rondo is one of the best point guards in the NBA. Rondo excels at attacking the rim and passing the ball; he is not a shooter.

In the wake of Russell Westbrook having a spat with Kevin Durant while at the same time the Boston Celtics are off to an 0-3 start, there’s been all sports of buzz on the Internet and talk radio about a Westbrook for Rajon Rondo trade. Stop it. Let it go. It doesn’t work. And it’s…
Honestly, I'm going to give Mr. Rondo a break since he was getting chased down by Miami's Dwayne Wade but the below lay-up is still pretty ugly:

We keep hearing rumors that Rajon Rondo is on the trade block — it had been for Chris Paul but the Celtics will listen to other offers, too. They are not going to move him for just anyone, but he’s not the easiest player to get along with and Boston is keeping its options open.…

Rajon Rondo is an alien. I mean that in the best way possible. He has freakishly large hands, abnormally long arms and moves around the basketball court getting his shot at angles that most “human” players can’t get to. Watching Rajon Rondo play basketball is a joy.

I thought that NBA players would be a bit rusty with such a shortened preseason, but I never expected to see this. Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo completely missed hitting the rim with his shot, but his shot wasn’t from downtown or even from the free throw, it was a layup from about 7-inches away.

Hornets fans aren't quite as obnoxious as Heat or Knick fans but they hate on the Celtics just like everyone else. The theme seems to be that the Celtics are old and nothing the Celtics have done seems to disprove that. I think it's more of a chemistry problem right now because of lack of training camp and because of injuries. Hopefully the Celtics win Friday or...

Brandon BossNo, that wasn’t a typo. Brandon Bass = Brandon Boss. He had 20 points and 11 rebounds yesterday while shooting 9-13. But the stats alone don’t tell the story. I’m confident when Boss shoots jumpers. I’m happy when he gets aggressive (which is almost all the time). I’m thrilled that he has the athleticism to finish in traffic and not get his shot blocked 95...
Highlight Recap: Wade denies Allen at the rim, Bosh throws it down. Rajon Rondo is pretty fast, but LeBron is faster. Marcus Camby erases a shot by DeMarcus Cousins. Brandon Jennings with a high-percentage shot. Kobe tools on Raja Bell and the Jazz. McBob gets up for a lob. Al Horford doesn’t jump very well, but he eked this one in. Metta… World… PEACE!!!!!...
The Celtics only shot 37.2% from the floor and they were outrebounded 48-37 as the Hornets looked like they wanted this game a lot more than Boston did last night. Ray Allen (15 points, 2 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 steal) and Rajon Rondo (13 points, 2 rebounds, 6 assists and 1 steal) led the way for the Celtics in this game. Brandon Bass (11 points, 4 rebounds and 1 blocked shot...
