Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
CSN New England’s Donny Marshall — the former NBA player who covers the Celtics and does some color commentary for the team’s broadcasts — was on NBC’s SportsTalk today talking Rajon Rondo and saying the Celtics were open to moving Rajon Rondo more because of his personality than his game.
“My sources tell me he’s started to wear his welcome out a little bit,” Marshall said.
Marshall also says that you can’t put trading anybody past GM Danny Ainge, who is fearless about exploring and making moves.

We've heard this before. Rondo is moody, stubborn and hard to coach. I still find it hard to believe that his personality is the driving force behind the trade rumors.

After all the presents have been opened and before the feast begins, Christmas Day can be tough to swallow for revelers who don't get along very well with their in-laws. Fortunately, the return of the NBA just in time for the holiday -- as well as news that Rajon Rondo is staying a Celtic for the time being -- gives those fans a welcome excuse to retreat to the TV room. This...
Shaquille O'Neal - the man with an opinion on everything - offered his two cents on the Chris Paul-for-Rajon Rondo trade rumors during a morning appearance on 98.5:

The NBA and the Celtics rapidly reappeared on the consciousness of Boston sports fans this week, with Rajon Rondo trade rumors spreading like wildfire just days after the lockout unofficially came to an end. For the Celtics, the season kicked off in earnest on Thursday, when team president of basketball operations Danny Ainge and head coach Doc Rivers met with the media, a chore...
I interrupt your regularly scheduled (and wildly entertaining) trade rumors to bring you a Boston Celtics training camp 2011 update. (Boston Globe)With training camp just 10 days away for all NBA teams, the Celtics have apparently made a decision on where they will workout in preparation for the 2011-12 season. According to a source, the Celtics will stay home and train at their...
With the NBA back in business, trade rumors are flowing. One of the most interesting trade rumors is between the Boston Celtics and the New Orleans Hornets. The trade rumor has Rajon Rondo being traded in a package for Chris Paul.

The Boston Celtics say they're not actively trying to trade point guard Rajon Rondo. Danny Ainge, the team's president of basketball operations, said Thursday "I'm not" actively seeking a deal for Rondo amid reports he's willing to explore the possibility. Ainge said that trade rumors are part of the business of basketball and that good players will be mentioned...
The Boston Celtics are trying (rather aggressively, if you believe the rumors) to acquire Chris Paul. But I believe there must be something bigger at play, something bigger even than Chris Paul, even if that “something bigger” seems far-fetched and improbable and very much Dwight Howard.On the surface, trading Rajon Rondo for Chris Paul does not make sense.

Danny Ainge wants the hoops world to know (or at least believe) that despite his point guard’s name appearing in all kinds of trade rumors lately, Rajon Rondo isn’t being shopped by the Celtics. From the Boston Globe: “Ainge said that the team’s greatest need is size, but said that he’s also got a point guard position (a backup) and wing positions to fill. He said the...
