Rajon Rondo tweeted this photograph during his acupuncture session earlier today. He said the procedure helps release spasm and reduce pain.
Meanwhile, ESPN’s Marc Stein unveiled his first power rankings of the season. The Celtics debut at #27 and you’ll never guess who Stein says will be traded:
They have to trade Rajon Rondo. You know it, I know it, everyone in basketball knows...
Final edition of "Camp questions". With training camp gearing up this afternoon, today we finish things off by taking a look at the longest tenured Celtic - Rajon Rondo.
About Rajon Rondo:
It seems like just yesterday that the Celtics pulled off a draft night trade for Rondo in 2006, swapping a 2007 1st round pick for Rondo and Brian Grant's $2 million expiring salary...

When asked on Twitter how things were going for him, Rajon Rondo posted a photo of himself getting acupuncture on his surgically repaired knee. Rondo hasn't been fully cleared to return to basketball activities as yet and isn't expected...
Celtics fans are on pins and needles anticipating Rajon Rondo‘s return from a torn ACL. It appears Rondo is, too. Rondo tweeted a photo of himself getting acupuncture on his right leg and surgically repaired right knee on Friday, in response to a fan’s question about how his day was going. “It’s going,” Rondo responded. Rondo suffered his knee injury in a double-overtime...
WALTHAM, MA — Eight months after tearing his ACL, Celtics All-Star Rajon Rondo was still unsure when he would return to the floor at Celtics 2013 Media Day Monday. After catching a football from Jordan Crawford and making his way to the podium, Rondo refused to commit to a timeframe for a return and pointed to Derrick Rose as precedent. “When I’m mentally ready, I’ll play...
WALTHAM, Mass. — Rajon Rondo sought out advice from all over the sports landscape both before and after his ACL surgery in February. Patriots receiver Wes Welker and former teammates Kendrick Perkins and Tony Allen all got calls from the Celtics point guard, who came away with a couple of impressions. One, there is no way to tell, from one case to the next, how an individual will...

Earlier this summer I did a fairly comprehensive breakdown of the NBA, ranking all 30 teams after a summer of moves. I put the Celtics 22nd, 9th in the East, expecting them (if they avoid a major move) to finish right around 30 wins this season.
However, Marc Stein of ESPN disagrees pretty strongly, instead putting the Cs among the very worst...
Although Rajon Rondo did not give much insight on his recovering ACL injury other than it is "right on schedule", he did provide a look into the relationship he has with first year head coach Brad Stevens.
Rondo stresses early relationship with Brad Stevens. "Me and Brad have become best friends. We talk every day, we laugh and joke."

Doc Rivers inherited a Los Angeles Clippers team that won 56 games and set franchise records last season. Now it's up to him to get the veterans and a mix of newcomers to do what the franchise has never done - make a sustained playoff run.
''We have a chance to do something,'' he said Monday at the team's media day. ''I believe we can (win a title...
Rajon Rondo has made two additions to his life.
“The bike has become my friend” the Celtics point guard said yesterday during media day referring to of one of his primary means of rehabilitating from ACL surgery.
It’s not out of the question that his new coach Brad Stevens could join Rondo on a tandem bike ride someday soon.
“Me and Brad have become best friends” Rondo...
One of the most talked-about storylines heading into Brad Stevens‘ first year with the Celtics has been how Stevens, who has never coached at the professional level, will be able to deal with the notoriously temperamental Rajon Rondo.
Stevens made building a relationship with his point guard a priority during the offseason, including making a visit to Rondo’s basketball camp...
Chris Paul might be the best point guard in the NBA, but to Doc Rivers he’s simply a talented guy without a ring.
Fresh off of coaching Rajon Rondo, Rivers is not foreign to dealing with different personalities and that experience dealing with Rondo, along with a winning pedigree allowed Rivers to lay the law down to Paul during their first meeting.
According to Marc Spears of...
The 2012-13 season was disappointing for the Celtics; injuries, not living up to the hype, and eventually losing to the Knicks in the first round of the Playoffs. One positive to come from the season was the amount of great kicks that found their way on to the court.
We started with 16 of the best kicks from the season and you, the people have had your say.

Welcome to Doc Rivers‘ world, Jason Kidd.
Rivers and Kevin Garnett butted heads at times over the last few seasons over how many minutes the veteran big man would play and against which opponents he would rest. When the Nets acquired Garnett in this summer’s blockbuster trade, new coach Kidd remarked that Garnett, 37, would probably sit the first or second game on any two-game...
