A hard foul by Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries on the CelticsKevin Garnett triggered a scrap under the Boston basket late in the first half of Wednesday’s matchup between the two teams in Boston. The fight resulted in ejections for Humphries and Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo, who came in to defend KG. Brooklyn’s Gerald Wallace got his second technical of the night during the scrap, resulting in his ejection as well.
At this point, we get it. Ray Allen is really, really glad that he's not playing for the Celtics anymore. He may not make as much money playing for the Miami Heat as he could have if he'd stayed in Boston. But, with Miami, he doesn't have to worry about playing with Rajon Rondo for 82-plus games. And, he also won't be used as a decoy on the offensive end of the court, which is something that he wasn't real happy about last year." [Read More]
Who do you think is the best point guard in the NBA? Derrick Rose, when healthy? Russell Westbrook? Where does Rajon Rondo rank? If you ask Rondo himself, he should head and shoulders above everyone else. While speaking from the World Basketball Festival earlier this week, the Celtics guard didn't pull any punches when the topic of top points in the league came up. “As I said at any time, I’ve matured a lot and my game also,” Rondo told Basket Session.

Outside of a possible Dwight Howard-to-the-Nets deal, the other transaction that everyone is talking about right now is a possible trade between the Celtics and Hornets that would send Rajon Rondo to New Orleans in exchange for Chris Paul.
Sounds like a decent deal for both sides, right? At least when you consider that CP3 doesn't seem interested in resigning with the Hornets when his contract is up after this season. [Read More]
The night prior to his charity game at Harvard on Saturday, Rajon Rondo went out to celebrate, and his evening was nearly ruined when another club-goer threw a punch (that missed) at the Celtics’ star point guard.
According to WHDH, Rajon Rondo and several other NBA players were at a nightclub called Brian’s Ivy Hall in downtown Lowell Friday night when a man attacked Rondo. [Read More]
Last year at the start of August, we were treated to a brand new commercial series and internet portal by the name of The Educators, an ad campaign for Foot Locker x Nike in which a series of “teachers” bring the education while wearing several signature Nike shoes.
Whoa! Here's a pretty impressive comparison—that becomes even more impressive when you consider the source. In between Games 2 and 3 of the Heat/Celtics series, LeBron James & Co. have apparently been spending a lot of time trying to find ways to contain Rajon Rondo moving forward. So, of course, LBJ was asked exactly what Miami was going to do to try and combat the little guy after practice yesterday. And what he said might surprise you.
"You really can't," he said. "Every time he has the ball, you always have to know that he's capable of making something happen, not only for himself, but for his teammates...He's like Barry Sanders. You wouldn't want to run up on him all crazy in the backfield back in the day, either. He'll spin you around and get a touchdown. So you gotta be smart with it." Barry Sanders?! High praise, especially coming from King James. And something tells us it's got Mike D'Antonispinning in his (playoff) grave as we speak.
