It’s easy to turn Rajon Rondo‘s game into a senior year thesis. He “contains multitudes,” but at only 6-1, 170, he’s not “large,” though his game does contain “contradictions.” Walt Whitman parallels aside, two plays in last night’s 94-88 Celtics loss to the Blazers show why we feel “so proud to get” near “the meaning of” Rondo.

Kyrie Irving took over early in the fourth with his Cavs down 19, outpacing the C’s 13-4. He then told LeBron James, “Be aggressive.” Welp, James asked for it, and he proceeded to outscore the entire Celtics team, 10-7, in the game’s last six minutes to help the Cavs come back from that huge fourth quarter deficit and win, 122-121.

If it were up to Kendrick Perkins, prospective free agent Rajon Rondo would remain with the Boston Celtics for the long-haul. The Oklahoma City Thunder big man even says he could even envision joining his former teammate in Bean Town. Read More »
Late in the third quarter against the Oklahoma City Thunder, Rajon Rondo is well on his way to a triple-double. The Boston Celtics maestro has 12 points, nine rebounds, and nine assists, success that was easy to see coming given his energy from the opening tip.

It seems Rajon Rondo felt good to go around nap-time when the Brooklyn Nets were in Boston last night to tip off the 2014-15 season. Except, Rondo didn’t want to deal with Boston’s crazy traffic and opted to take public transportation to the game before helping the C’s eviscerate the Nets, 121-105. Read More »
Rajon Rondo’s status for the Boston Celtics’ season-opener on Wednesday night will apparently come down to his pre-game nap. And whether he wakes up from that siesta ready to play or otherwise, Rondo’s recently broken hand currently puts him at “83 percent” health. Read More »
It seems like yesterday that the internet was abuzz with unsubstantiated rumors that Rajon Rondo broke his hand while at a trampoline park. But that was over three weeks ago, and the Boston Celtics star apparently has a chance to play in his team’s season-opener on October 29. Time sure does fly when there’s NBA basketball – even exhibition NBA basketball – to watch on a nightly basis. Read More »

To survive in today’s NBA, you need a good point guard. You just do. Of the teams that finished last season with the eight best records, six of them either had an All-Star point guard or LeBron James. The other two teams were the Indiana Pacers (who, without the stability that a good point guard brings, fell apart down the stretch) and the Houston Rockets (eliminated in the first round).
The point guard on a basketball court is like the quarterback on the gridiron. He’s the general, the leader, the boss.
The NBA in 2014 is littered with talented point guards. And just like the “Who’s the best quarterback in the NFL?” arguments, few NBA debates spark disagreement like the “Who’s the best point guard in the NBA?” debate does.
Delusional Kevin Durant and Kobe Bryant fans notwithstanding, we’re all generally in agreement that James is, hands down, the best basketball player in the world. The point guard debate is a different monster. There are four or five different guys that, depending on whom you ask, can be considered the NBA’s alpha dog point guard.
The good news is that I’m here to finally settle the debate. Here are the NBA’s top 20 point guards. Read More »
Despite undergoing surgery on his hand after a freak fall in the shower, Rajon Rondo was pretty quick to answer when asked if he felt he was a max contract player, but his performance this season will go a long way towards the answer. Read More »
Rajon Rondo broke his hand on Thursday night and underwent successful surgery yesterday that will leave him sidelined for at least six weeks. In a statement announcing the news, the Boston Celtics say Rondo suffered the injury while falling at home, and media reports clarified that it occurred when the star point guard slipped in the shower. As suspicious as that explanation seemed initially, it’s even more so now after rumors ran rampant overnight that Rondo visited a Boston area trampoline park the same day he fractured a left metacarpal.
