Report: Rajon Rondo “Open” To Re-Signing With Mavs Or Rockets If Traded

Rajon Rondo

Last night Yahoo reported the Boston Celtics were engaged in “serious” discussions about point guard Rajon Rondo. Trade season officially opened on Dec. 15 with teams now able to move contracts signed this past summer, and Rondo is one of the biggest names to watch. CBS Sports’ Ken Berger is now reporting that Rondo would be “open” to re-signing with the Mavs or Rockets if he were traded to those Texas contenders. Read More »

Kelly Olynyk

Kelly Olynyk, high-flier? Evidently. Watch the short-armed, normally ground-bound Boston Celtics big man launch from just inside the dotted line for a dunk on Kyle O’Quinn in his team’s 109-92 win over the Orlando Magic. Read More »

Evan Turner Compares Himself To Jesus In Return To Phildelphia

Evan Turner

It seems Evan Turner‘s return to Philadelphia was similar to Beatles first coming over to America, with girls “fainting” and Turner getting his “hand kissed by people” before the game. But when the game started, the boo’s rang down, prompting Turner to align his plight with that of Jesus Christ. Read More »

Watch Rajon Rondo Get Fancy On Fast Break Dish To Avery Bradley

Rajon Rondo

We had to watch the replay three times to fully understand how Rajon Rondo got the ball to Avery Bradley for a transition layup. It’s actually quite simple, but looks anything but in real-time. Watch the Boston Celtics’ maestro get fancy by going behind his back to fool Luc Mbah a Moute then immediately dishing a quick bounce pass to Bradley for an easy layup in his team’s game versus the Philadelphia 76ers.

Video: Rajon Rondo Drops Lance Stephenson With Elbow, But Was It A Flop?

Rajon Rondo, Lance Stephenson

During last night’s 96-87 Hornets win over the Celtics in Charlotte, Rajon Rondo appeared to have cold-cocked Lance Stephenson to the floor with an elbow to his jaw. Later, Stephenson got in Rondo’s face. After the game, Rondo claimed Stephenson flopped. Was he right? Read More »

Video: Evan Turner’s Game-Tying Three-Pointer Sends Celtics & Wizards To OT

Evan Turner

What a crazy game in Washington last night. We had a full-court shot that didn’t count, two overtimes, and an emotional post-game interview by John Wall who dedicated the hard-fought victory to the hard-fought battle six-year-old Miyah Telemaque-Nelson lost against cancer (we’re still getting choked up about that). Adding to the madcap night was Evan Turner‘s game-tying three-pointer with under a second left in regulation to force the first overtime. Read More »

Video: Jeff Green Sinks Full-Court Shot…After Buzzer

Jeff Green

As a player, you hate when this happens, but perhaps it was how nonchalant Jeff Green was when he flung a shot from the opposite side of the court right before halftime in last night’s thrilling double-overtime Wizards-Celtics game. Crazier things happened last night in the Association, but this just added to the zaniness. Read More »

Rondo, Pierce, Garnett, Perkins Share Group Text; Ray Allen Not Included

Paul Pierce, Rajon Rondo

Time passes. Things change. People move on. But like the bond it forges, a championship can’t be taken away. Every member of the 2008 Boston Celtics will forever live in basketball lore. Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo, and Kendrick Perkins would apparently prefer if one of their former championship-winning teammates wasn’t included. After his Washington Wizards lost to the Cs in Bean Town yesterday, Pierce said that he, KG, Rondo, and Perk share a group text; notably absent from the chain was Allen. Read More »
