Rajon Rondo’s Potential Destinations Could Alter Balance Atop NBA (Photos)

Rajon Rondo is still a member of the Boston Celtics — for now. At any point in the next year or so, however, that could change. Whether Rondo is dealt this offseason, sometime before next year’s trade deadline or leaves as a free agent next summer, the Celtics could soon be looking at life without their All-Star point guard and the last remaining member of their 2008 NBA championship...

Blame It On Rondo

One of the most ridiculous 'factals' that has been propagated into near truth is the claim that Rajon Rondo was awful in 2013-2014.   I suppose that one of the reasons this notion has taken on such legs is that the Celtics organization - as is their wont - badly misled people about what to expect.  We were led to believe that Rondo was expected back by opening day, and...

The former Kentucky Wildcats slasher has grown tired of Boston’s rebuilding project, and the Celtics are also preparing for life without him. They signed combo guard Avery Bradley to a 4-year, $32 million deal, and also spent the 6th pick in the 2014 NBA Draft...

Rajon "Trade Rumor" Rondo can't hide from teams wants, and Danny's desires

Reading a Rajon Rondo trade rumor makes me yawn. I don't know if I should cry, laugh, or just lose my mind. It's become numbing, and it's something that does bother me, but I also know that there are media rumors and Danny rumors. I try to read through the crap to see who sent the rumor out in the media. The Rockets rumor to me is a media rumor. The Rockets have been...
