RAJON RONDO NEWS

Reporter asks Rondo why he chose Dallas, face palms abound

Well you might get the weather, a contending team, and a max contract with no state income tax, but don't expect fans or even the media to be as basketball knowledgeable in Dallas, Rajon. Rondo learned this right off the bat and answered in typical Rondo fashion. Have to love Cuban laughing at the question, Carlisle smirking, and even Powell smiling as well. In a related note, I still miss Molly.

Team Rondo – Past, Present, Future

As an avid Celtics fan since 2009, Rajon Rondo was (and will continue to be) my favourite player to wear that green jersey.

The 2009-10 season was the first year … Continue reading Team Rondo – Past, Present, Future → 2 total views, 2 views today

Rajon Rondo Asked Why He Came to Dallas During Press Conference-- His Answer is Awesome!

Mark Cuban finally succeeded in bringing a big name player to the Dallas Mavericks when he completed a trade with the Boston Celtics for Rajon Rondo. He's been striking out the last couple of off-seasons so it was nice for him to finally get one. That being said, either Rondo answered his first question as a Maverick a little too honestly or he doesn't like Dallas.Either way--hilarious...

Farewell, brother #ThankYouRondo

From that dive for the ball against Jason Williams in Game Three of 2010 Eastern Conference Finals to that poster dunk on Chris Bosh that sent Kevin Harlan on video game mode back in 2011, Rondo had given us plenty of moments worth remembering. But nothing is more precious to me than the times he stood up for Kevin Garnett. Three occasions come to my mind when I think about moments...

Reporter Asks Rondo Why He Chose Mavericks; Awkwardness Ensues (Video)

The Dallas Mavericks held a press conference for newly acquired players Rajon Rondo and Dwight Powell on Friday, and things got awkward fast.

Thank You RR9 – My Favourite Rajon Rondo Memory

‘Playoff Rondo’ is a magical individual. Basketball magic in its purest form. That is what I will miss the most. With the news coming through yesterday that Rajon Rondo would be traded to Dallas my first thought was that I will never get to see ‘Playoff Rondo’ take over games in green again. This sad realisation was heartbreaking for a self-confessed Rondo lover and defender...

The seemingly inevitable farewell – Goodbye, Rondo

This season had always felt surreal, somehow. I remember watching the season opener, and being so pumped by the video. It felt like, oh yeah the Celtics are back! It was finally game time. And then, I realised Rondo wasn’t in that video. At all. Why wasn’t the captain inside? Rondo, maestro of the amazing and unpredictable? Surely he would have gotten more time on the video...

Rondo makes Mavericks title contenders

After all the rumors, Rajon Rondo is officially switching teams. The Dallas Mavericks have acquired the four-time All-Star from the Boston Celtics. This is a risky move, since Rondo does not have to resign after the season. Nevertheless, it is a move that could propel the Mavericks to the top of the Western Conference.   The Western Conference is nothing short of stacked, but the...

The dust has settled: 10 thoughts on the Rajon Rondo trade

"That's all we got for Rondo??"My initial reaction to the Celtics trade of Rajon Rondo was probably similar to most of yours: disappointment. 20 or so hours later, that disappointment remains, but there are also many other thoughts. Instead of writing an organized, neat column laying them all out in some kind of order that makes sense -- I decided to go stream of consciousness with...

Rajon Rondo trade may spell trouble for Spurs

To Kobe Bryant, “he’s an a—hole, like me.” To Chandler Parsons he’s a “difference-maker.” To Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, the recently acquired four-time all-star point guard Rajon Rondo is the “intense” factor that the Mavericks need to seriously contend for dominance in the West.

The Rajon Rondo Trade: How Does He Fit in Dallas?

I feel as though I need to speak up against this trade because I’ve been one of Rajon Rondo’s strongest critics for a long time. For example, here’s an older article about how deceiving Rondo’s stats are given that Boston’s offense has usually been just fine without him. The most famous instance is 2013 where the Celtics were playing poorly, they lost him to an injury,...

Why Boston will be just fine after the Rondo trade

One day after the trade and I’m sure most of us still can’t believe that the Celtics actually traded Rajon Rondo. Even those who thought the best move was deal him (me), found themselves in shock and a little bit saddened by the news. Though up to this point Rondo had been having a below average season, he was still the only thing that resembled an all-star in our lineup. He...
