Rajon Rondo Has Apparently Given Up on Playing Defense

Turmoil is brewing in Sacramento, which is something you could say about the Kings during almost every NBA season. Rumors about head coach George Karl getting fired get louder with each passing day. The Kings record sits at 21-30, a reflection of the porous defense they play night in and night out. The Kings give up 108.9 points per game, last in the NBA, and possessions like the...

Isaiah Thomas Soars To Block DeMarcus Cousins’ Alley-Oop Attempt (Video)

BOSTON — Isaiah Thomas’ game is bigger than his 5-foot-9 frame. Just ask DeMarcus Cousins.

That’s when Thomas intervened...

Derek Fisher blasts Rondo over triangle offense criticism

The New York Knicks need a point guard and may pursue one in free agency, but it seems safe to say that said point guard won’t be Rajon Rondo. Rondo is a point guard who likes the ball in his hands and isn’t known for his 3-point shooting, and he admitted on Friday that the triangle offense probably wouldn’t be a good fit for him.

Rajon Rondo Throws Down Massive Dunk, Crash Lands On Court (Video)

Rajon Rondo can still throw down huge dunks, but apparently he puts a little too much into them. The Sacramento Kings guard took an outlet pass from center DeMarcus Cousins in Wednesday’s 112-93 win over the Los Angeles Lakers, and he proceeded to lay down a one-handed slam over Ryan Kelly. However, the landing didn’t look as nice as the dunk. This embed is invalid...

Rajon Rondo: ‘Nothing but love’ for the Mavericks

When the Dallas Mavericks traded for All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo, they sold out for success in 2014-15. When the experiment failed, both parties moved on after a wildly unsuccessful five-month relationship.
