Rajon Rondo

If the Dallas Mavericks really are the most ardent pursuers of Rajon Rondo, they’re not doing a good job of playing coy. Hours after a report emerged that the Boston Celtics point guard would be “open” to re-signing with Mark Cuban’s team, the Mavs followed Rondo on Twitter. Read More »

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

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 »

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: Rajon Rondo Names LeBron, Durant &…Himself As Top 3 Players In NBA

LeBron James, Rajon Rondo

Before you lace into Rajon Rondo for his comments in a taped conversation before this season started, keep in mind he isn’t alone — at least in how he ranks himself against the league’s best. Rondo has won a title, and he’s been an All-Star. He is not, however, one of the top 3 players in the league like he said in the video after the jump. Similarly, James Harden isn’t the best all-around player in the NBA, but there’s more at play here than just a surface reaction of indignation. 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 »

Rajon Rondo On Meal With Kobe Bryant: “Just Two A**holes Having Breakfast”

Rajon Rondo, Kobe Bryant

We’ve already written about Kobe Bryant and Rajon Rondo sharing a meal before the Boston Celtics’ beat the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night. Frankly, there’s not much more to glean from their meeting than what’s been assumed for some time – that the Lakers will chase Rondo in free agency this summer. But this awesome quip from the C’s point guard on breakfast with Mamba deserves standalone attention nonetheless. Read More »

Report: Lakers Targeting Rajon Rondo, Celtics Plan To Re-Sign Him

Rajon Rondo

Sorry, conspiracy theorists. Yesterday’s breakfast between Kobe Bryant and Rajon Rondo was indeed just that – a breakfast. But that doesn’t mean the Los Angeles Lakers don’t have ambitions of stealing the star Boston Celtics point guard from their time-honored rivals in free agency this summer. Read More »
