Rondo going full-contact in practice

“He’ll go through the whole practice today,” said Stevens. “It’ll just be a matter of, again, how big that pad is. I think that’s the biggest thing moving forward. It’s really about getting hit or not. So, seeing how he feels after this, then we’ve got Saturday and Sunday off, so Monday [or] Tuesday we should know more [about his game availability].” Rondo is expected...

“Inevitable” lottery reform fails; C’s voted in favor

As the week began, one thing seemed certain in the NBA:  the draft lottery was going to be overhauled.  The incentive for tanking “had” to be removed, we were told, to avoid the desecration of our beautiful game.  A system that lessened the odds of the worst team winning the lottery (even though the worst team rarely wins the lottery) and increased the odds of the teams that...

Recap: Jared “Lovenger” leads C’s comeback win in Brooklyn

Last week, I wrote this of Jared Sullinger: There was a time this summer that Sullinger was one of the pieces talked about in a trade for Kevin Love. Now he is hoping to become a sort of Love clone. Sullinger prides himself on rebounding, and he is a big fan of shooting the 3-pointer. He’s also shown an ability to back guys down in the post and use his body well to keep from getting...
