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.

Video: Celtics introduce the new batch of temporary Celtics

The Celtics introduced Jae Crowder, Jameer Nelson, and Brandan Wright Friday night following the Celtics win over the Wolves. Not exactly 34, 5, and 20 huh? Nice numbers. So we can't entice free agents with a contending team or warm weather, but they can get high taxes and their choice of numbers in the 60's, 70's, 80's and 90's.Next year will mark 1 championship in 30 years for...

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

Disdain, and the trade that sent Rondo to Dallas

Forgive me for starting with a little inside-baseball talk. Whenever I'm writing seriously here, or whatever you call I do here at Celticslife, I'm motivated by one main thing; to make sure I don't sound like the type of person that calls into sports radio, screaming into the receiver of my phone because I disagree with the host. So when trades or transactions happen that I don't...

My Top 5 Rajon Rondo Memories - No. 5: "The greatest triple-double in 44 years"

The Lakers currently owe their 2015 first round pick to Phoenix, though it is top 5 protected. What's not as often talked about, is that the Lakers own...
