  2. Celtics’ Ainge doesn’t see a franchise-changing player in this draft

    Oct 3, 2013, 10:30 AM EST

    Andrew Wiggins

    I’ve taken to calling it “woeful for Wiggins” but there are a hundred different ways of phrasing the organizational tanking going on around the NBA — a number of teams are going with the “get bad to get good” strategy this year. The Sixers, Suns, Magic, Jazz and others chose this year to be a…

  3. LeBron James tops NBA’s worldwide jersey sales list

    Oct 2, 2013, 7:25 PM EST

    LeBron James

    LeBron James is coming off of back-to-back NBA titles and consecutive regular season MVP awards, while being widely recognized as the best basketball player on the planet. That last part was recently hammered home from a global popularity standpoint, as well. LeBron topped the league’s worldwide jersey sales list, in figures released on Wednesday. From…

  4. Rajon Rondo says he felt nothing when Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Doc Rivers left Celtics

    Oct 1, 2013, 1:45 PM EST

    Memphis Grizzlies v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo played seven seasons for Doc Rivers and with Paul Pierce and six seasons with Kevin Garnett. Rondo won a championship with those three. He battled nightly with those three. He took cross-country trips with those three. Then, they all left Rondo alone in Boston. Pierce and Garnett were traded to the Nets, and…

  5. Rajon Rondo has two new best friends, and only one is Brad Stevens

    Oct 1, 2013, 1:19 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Can Brad Stevens connect with NBA players? That was one of the biggest questions facing Stevens when the Celtics hired him from Butler, the only other place he’d coached, including as an assistant. It’s much different running a team of unpaid students (and that’s closer to the truth at Butler than, say, Kentucky) than running…

  6. John Wall says Wizards need to win for him to become an All-Star

    Sep 28, 2013, 9:30 PM EST

    John Wall

    John Wall received a max contract extension from the Wizards this summer that will see him earn $80 million over the next five years. Now that he’s being paid like an All-Star, it’s time for him to go out and actually perform well enough to deserve the honor. Wall was limited to just 49 games…

  7. Coach Stevens raves about Avery Bradley as point guard, as if he has other options

    Sep 27, 2013, 10:31 AM EST

    New Boston Celtics Head Coach Stevens smiles during a news conference at the Celtics training center in Waltham

    We may not see Rajon Rondo on the court in Boston until you have started your Christmas shopping (your mother wants you to know she’s almost done right now). Which means for the first couple months of the season new coach Brad Stevens is going to have to play Avery Bradley at the point, with…

  8. Rondo twitter Q&A: He likes tacos, empanadas, Boardwalk Empire

    Sep 26, 2013, 11:15 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    Rajon Rondo decided to do an impromptu Twitter Q&A Wednesday night, which had some interesting questions and answers — not so much basketball stuff, but interesting personal stuff about the normally reserved Rondo. He breaks some NBA molds by not liking video games or skittles. We’re passing along a few highlights. Kevin Garnett, Josh Smith,…

  9. Rondo could be out until December Celtics GM Ainge says

    Sep 24, 2013, 11:24 AM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    Well, the good news is Avery Bradley is healthy and ready for training camp to start. That’s particularly good because he could be playing the point for the first couple months of the season, sharing time with rookie Phil Pressey. All that because Rajon Rondo could be out until December. Celtics GM Danny Ainge was…

  10. Avery Bradley could miss start of Celtics’ camp for personal reasons

    Sep 19, 2013, 10:24 AM EST

    Avery Bradley

    Our heart goes out to Celtics’ two guard Avery Bradley, who recently had his mother pass away. He is dealing with an emotional roller coaster with his child due soon as well. Because of all this he could miss the start of the Celtics training camp, reports A. Sherrod Blakely at CSNNE.com. “He’s going through…

  12. Report: Andrew Bynum ‘nowhere near ready,’ likely to miss preseason

    Sep 18, 2013, 12:16 AM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    The Cavaliers took a chance on Andrew Bynum, but it was a small one considering that the team signed him to a contract that is only guaranteed for $6 million, and doesn’t become fully guaranteed until after January 10. There would seem to be an incentive for Bynum to get back on the court for…

  13. ProBasketballTalk 2013-14 Preview: The Boston Celtics

    Sep 17, 2013, 8:43 AM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    Last season: For the first half of the season Boston — with veterans like Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce — looked like that team everyone wants to avoid in the first round. Remember, the year before they had taken Miami seven games in the Eastern Conference Finals. Maybe this version of the Celtics wasn’t going…

  15. Report: Rondo may leave Nike for Chinese company Anta

    Sep 16, 2013, 5:14 PM EST

    Atlanta Hawks v Boston Celtics - Game Three

    There was so much good stuff in the Boston Globe’s NBA column on Sunday we almost missed this (fortunately Matt at Eye on Basketball saw it): Rajon Rondo could be leaving Nike for Chinese shoe company Anta. Rajon Rondo has rehabilitated quietly from his torn right anterior cruciate ligament, but could make headlines off the…

  16. Report: Rajon Rondo unlikely to be ready for start of season

    Sep 15, 2013, 5:00 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    We’re going to be hearing plenty of updates and non-updates about when exactly Rajon Rondo will be ready to return to the Celtics lineup, even though this season is likely to involve more losing than winning in Boston. Consider this latest report of the non-update variety, but Celtics fans will find it of interest nonetheless.…

  17. Brad Stevens: No timetable for Rajon Rondo’s return, urges him to do so when ready

    Sep 13, 2013, 8:39 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo, Brooklyn Nets, Kris Humphries

    There’s far less of a sense of urgency for Rajon Rondo to return to the Celtics lineup than there was for say, Derrick Rose to try to get back on the court for the Bulls last season. We may see a similar vibe around the Celtics to the one we saw in Chicago, though, at…

  18. Jordan Crawford says Celtics teammates starting to look at him as leader. Okay then.

    Sep 13, 2013, 4:17 PM EST

    Boston Celtics Jordan Crawford goes up for the jump shot in front of Toronto Raptors John Lucas III in Toronto

    The Boston Celtics are Rajon Rondo’s team now. Well, unless they trade him, but heading into camp this is unquestionably Rondo’s team. However, if he’s not back at the start of the season (we have no timeline) then others may have to step up. There are respected veterans in that locker room such as Brandon…

  19. Doc Rivers didn’t want to see Paul Pierce leave the Celtics

    Sep 12, 2013, 9:17 PM EST

    Boston Celtics small forward Paul Pierce and head coach Doc Rivers react during a break in fourth quarter action against the Miami Heat in Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in Miami

    Paul Pierce played all 15 of his NBA seasons with the Celtics, before the team’s GM Danny Ainge decided it was time to enter a full-fledged rebuild, which meant ridding the club of expensive veteran salaries that remained on the roster. Pierce and Kevin Garnett were traded to the Nets this offseason, and Doc Rivers…

  20. Kevin Garnett says he showed Rondo how to lead Celtics

    Sep 12, 2013, 8:44 AM EST

    Celtics' Garnett talks with Rondo during a time out against Knicks in the second half during their NBA basketball game in New York

    Rajon Rondo was arguably the best player on the Celtics the past two seasons, but he was not the team leader. Kevin Garnett was, with Paul Pierce (and a couple seasons back Ray Allen) in that mix as well. Now, Rondo has been thrust into the roll of unquestioned leader of a young, rebuilding Boston…

  21. Brad Stevens talks in coachspeak, doesn’t have Rondo timeline

    Sep 6, 2013, 10:45 AM EST

    New Boston Celtics Head Coach Stevens smiles during a news conference at the Celtics training center in Waltham

    New Celtics coach Brad Stevens sat down with Comcast Sportsnet New England and said… not much of consequence. A lot of coachspeak. There was another non-update on a Rajon Rondo timeline. “He’s been very diligent when he’s been in town. … A couple of young guys came into the gym and just having him here…

  22. Coach Brad Stevens refuses to put timeline on Rondo’s return

    Aug 30, 2013, 4:11 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    When is Rajon Rondo going to be ready to play for Boston? Danny Ainge was hoping for opening night. Jared Sullinger hinted it could be more like December. New Celtics coach Brad Stevens is not going to play your game. At least publically. The Boston Herald tried to get him to say when Rondo would…

  23. Jared Sullinger on Rajon Rondo’s return: ‘Hopefully he’ll be back by December’

    Aug 25, 2013, 5:00 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Rajon Rondo suffered a torn ACL injury that prematurely ended his season last January, and while Celtics GM Danny Ainge has been eying an opening night return for this star point guard all along, the actual timetable may end up being a bit longer than that. Jared Sullinger, a teammate of Rondo’s who also had…

  24. MarShon Brooks working on attacking off dribble, finishing

    Aug 23, 2013, 5:08 PM EST

    Brooklyn Nets v Chicago Bulls - Game Three

    For his first couple seasons in the NBA, MarShon Brooks has been a potentially dynamic scoring guard who doesn’t score quite as well as you would hope. He didn’t finish all that well at the rim (a mediocre 62 percent in the restricted area) and he shot 32 percent from the midrange and 27 percent…

  25. Report: Celtics looking for assistant coach who can relate to Rondo

    Aug 19, 2013, 8:00 AM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    New Celtics coach Brad Stevens and Rajon Rondo may ultimately develop a great relationship. However, it’s going to take work and time — they come from very different places. Rondo is understandably feeling some culture shock with Doc Rivers, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce all gone and an entire new coaching team and philosophy coming…
