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.
In a trip that could resemble Team USA's takeover of the world stage at the 2008 Beijing Games, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Derrick Rose, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Amare Stoudemire, Chris Bosh, Rajon Rondo, Blake Griffin, Russell Westbrook, Carlos Boozer, Paul Pierce and Kevin Love are among the players expected to participate. Kevin Durant and Kevin Garnett, among a few others, are also contemplating joining the tour.
ESPN: NBA stars plan exhibition tour
So the rest of the world gets to see the basketball that we so desperately crave? Great. I look forward to the grainy, jumpy live streams.
Rondo and Pierce are officially signed for the tour. KG is still "possible" (guess anything is with him, AMIRITE?!?!!1!).
I'm actually not holding my breath for KG. These...

SLAM Magazine has re-published a summer interview with Rajon Rondo. The Celtics point guard talks about his sneaker - Nike Zoom Hyperfuse 2011. What really catches my attention is the lack of ankle support.
KICKS: As far as shoes go, what was more important to you earlier on?
RR: Pretty much, I loved low-cuts. Since the Hyperfuse, I’ve been in mid-tops. But I go back and...
Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo has unveiled his new back tattoo and he pretty much jacked the Rolls-Royce logo.
Actually, he didn’t pretty much jack it, he totally had his tattoo artist copy it and put it on his back, which will probably get him a cease and desist letter from the automaker.
But hey, the double R, those are his initials and you should definitely get your...
As the 16 Hours negotiation marathon continues on to end the lockout, the NBA players made other news today announcing that its stars will take part in a two week exhibition tour.
The tour will run during what would have been the first two weeks of the NBA Regular season running from October 30th in Puerto Rico and run through November 9th. Stops will include London, Australia...
Rajon Rondo went with the classic initials tattoo recently, and he spared no expense. The Boston Celtics guard took up nearly his whole back with the new ink. We hope it helps the mid-range jumper.

This NBA lockout must totally suck for the players. No exorbitant paychecks. Forced to play in pickup games in crappy old gyms or move to some European outpost that's still rebuilding from the air raids of the Second Great War. A little free time is nice, but professional athletes are creatures of habits, they need structure, and they must be jonesing for the season to start...
I love tattoos. Especially high quality ones. I’m on the fence about Rajon Rondo’s. But the classic Rolls Royce symbol isn’t a deal breaker. It’s not something he’ll regret it as long as he doesn’t have a name change in his future. It’s clean…

The Celtics have brought back the Big Three and Rajon Rondo, but they need to fill up the bench when the lockout is lifted. Right now, the Celtics’ bench consists of point guard Avery Bradley, rookie guard E’Twaun Moore and rookie forward JaJuan Johnson. The Celtics will be looking for affordable veterans to fill out the bench, as this current crop of Celtics probably don’t...
Reality TV’s knockout combo of talking heads and inanimate 38-year old women has made “The Real Housewives Of ______” an easy joke, but when it’s done right, it can be really, really right. Case in point:”The Real Houseweives Of South Boston”, by way of Buzzfeed.
Somehow it manages to be hilarious, exactly like a real Real Housewives episode (complete with inexplicable...
The Block Party is busy killing Gaddafi and saving Jerome Harrison, so we’ll be back next week with an interview with ESPNBoston’s Chris Forsberg and a preview of the big Steelers game. Of course, we’ll figure out when the NBA season will start and whether Rajon Rondo will win MVP this year. See you in a week.
Block Party, We Out
When NBA labor talks broke down 17 days ago, the owners blamed it on Kevin Garnett. And Kobe Bryant and Paul Pierce, but mostly KG and his legendary glare. The two sides had been making progress in talks but those three NBA stars came in and drew a hard line at 53 percent of basketball…
