First things first, I'm the realest I think the title makes it sound a little worse than it really was.That said, the title is completely accurate. On last night's "Sports Final Overtime" on WBZ, Grousbeck was asked about Rajon Rondo as part of an interview which was meant to preview the upcoming season.

Celtics owner: Rajon Rondo is stubborn, possibly uncoachable

Rajon Rondo is a strong-willed, hard-headed basketball player who is not easy to coach. That’s pretty common knowledge. It’s just a little different when an owner says it. Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck was a guest on WBZ-TV’s “Sports Final Overtime” Sunday and talked about Rondo as a player. He says he wants Rondo to remain […]

Celtics Building Patiently After Failing To Produce Offseason 'Fireworks'

The Boston Celtics were unable to make a major move this offseason, failing in their efforts to trade for Kevin Love. Wyc Grousbeck alluded to "fireworks" back in March when describing the Celtics' offseason plans. “I said we’d try for fireworks and we tried,” Grousbeck said. “I’m reasonably content that first of all we tried as hard as we could and second of all we added...

Wyc Grousbeck: Celtics Tried For Fireworks, Have To Take ‘Patient Route’

Majority team owner Wyc Grousbeck spoke about the Boston Celtics offseason plans in early March, suggesting that “there could be some fireworks” come June.

Vote: Who Will Be Celtics’ Starting Point Guard When Next Season Opens?

For the first time in seven years, the Boston Celtics could have a new man handling the point guard duties. While the Celtics remain adamant that Rajon Rondo will not be traded, others believe the writing is on the wall for the four-time All-Star. The team’s drafting of Marcus Smart creates an apparent logjam at point guard, where the 28-year-old Rondo is entering his final season...

Celtics Owner ‘Rejects’ Notion Of Tanking, Hoping For ‘Building’ Season

The 2014 Boston Celtics offseason will be defined by “fireworks” — or, as it’s looking like so far, lack thereof. That term has been written and discussed countless time since Celtics owner Wyc Grousbeck first uttered it back in March, and during that time, Grousbeck believes his words might have been twisted a bit. “No, if you go back and look at what I said, I said we...

Celtics owner: 'Trade season is not over yet.'

Kevin Love isn't here.  Rajon Rondo is still here.  The only moves the Celtics made yesterday were drafting a pair of guys with their own two picks.  If this is disappointing to you, don't worry.  Trades could still happen.  Case in point: When Boston acquired Kevin Garnett seven years ago, the date was July 31.
