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, 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.

Rajon Rondo

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.
