“Each and every year he’s maturing as a player,” Pierce said. “That happens with a lot of young players. We go through a phase where we’re young and immature and then we have to grow up, and I think he’s into that phase where he’s growing up.”
Herald: Rondo: "I've got to do better"
Can we chalk up what Rondo is going through right now as "growing pains?" If anyone would know, it's Paul Pierce, who was nearly run out of town the same way fans are turning on Rondo now.
Rondo's low point was the ref ball-toss... about which he says
“I mean, I don’t think you guys will see that again from me,” Rondo said. “So obviously I’ve learned from it, but I’m an emotional player. I just felt things were different, and I reacted the way I reacted.”
But here's the

Rondo, totally sick of media, deadpans: "I don't want to start any trade rumors but Kendrick Perkins is getting traded back to the Celtics."— Ben Golliver (@blazersedge) February 24, 2012
So.. this is kind of out of left field. Who knows how much credence there is to this, knowing Rondo he was probably kidding. The Perk trade certainly has not gone away as a topic...
The Boston Celtics are in the market for big men.
Centers Jermain O'Neal and Chris Wilcox both missed Wednesday's loss at Oklahoma City and may not be available after the All-Star break.
Both players flew back to Boston to have their injuries evaluated. O'Neal suffered a sprained left wrist and Wilcox a strained right groin in Monday's loss at Dallas.
It looks like Celtics fans have something to look forward to on All Star Saturday after all. Last year we had Ray and Paul shooting it out in the 3 point contest. This year it didn't appear that there would be any Celtics entrants in the Saturday festivities. But today, Rajon Rondo was named to replace Stephen Curry in the Skills Challenge.
In case you have forgotten...
According to Peter Vecsey of the NY Post, the Lakers would be more than interested in acquiring Rajon Rondo from the Celtics.
If the Lakers indeed are interested in signing Rasheed Wallace — a logical step-down from flirting with Gilbert Arenas—it lends credence to the Rajon Rondo/Jermaine O’Neal-Pau Gasol swap I keep hearing. Lord knows they’re desperate for a point guard...
Happy Friday Celtics fans. Fan Friday will be back after the All-Star break, but I'd like to do a little throwback piece on All-Star weekend. Enjoy some pics from All-Star games past including some current Boston Celtics. Video of Paul Pierce's 2010 Three-Point contest victory after the jump...
Unfortunately it's more bad news for the Celtics, as they could not pick up a win this week. They have now lost five in a row and seven out of their last eight. They head into the all-star break sitting in eigth place in the Eastern Conference.
They have been dealing with injuries lately and Rajon Rondo had a two game suspension to add insult to injury. Kevin Garnett...
The NY Post's Peter Vecsey is the latest to stir the pot:

ORLANDO - What kind of a Celtic would Paul Pierce be if he didn’t capitalize on an opportunity to chide Lakers guard Kobe Bryant? Pierce took full advantage while sitting on the bench last night during the final moments of the West’s 152-149 victory over the East.

Wallace has been reported that his condition has been better than it’s been in years. He will be a solid back-up for Pau Gasol coming off the bench. Although this doesn’t help the Lakers get...

The Celtics are 15-17 at the midpoint of the season.
ORLANDO, Fla. — To the Clippers point guard Chris Paul, Deron Williams is a guy who “can shoot it, can pass it, just knows how to play.”
To the Celtics’ Paul Pierce, it’s “his size, his ability to make plays, his ability to shoot the ball, [a] rare combination” that...
