Rajon Rondo

  1. Doc Rivers finally speaks on chances of return, but only to say ‘I’d rather not say’

    Jun 10, 2013, 3:43 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game Six

    Kevin Garnett might retire. Paul Pierce’s contract is only partially guaranteed for next season. Who knows when Rajon Rondo will return to full health? The Celtics have plenty of question marks headed into next season. Meanwhile, Doc Rivers had been lying low. He’s finally spoken publically about his future with the Celtics, but he didn’t…

  2. Tony Parker not the NBA’s best point guard, but a darn good one in the NBA Finals

    Jun 7, 2013, 2:47 AM EDT

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-GAME 1

    When Tony Parker won NBA Finals MVP in 2007, it caught many off guard. Tim Duncan won Finals MVP for the Spurs’ first three titles, and he was still an All-NBA first-team player during the 2006-07 regular season. A major of ESPN writers surveyed before Game 4 of San Antonio’s sweep over the Cavaliers chose…

  3. LeBron James gets triple-double in Game 1 of NBA Finals

    Jun 6, 2013, 11:11 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game One

    LeBron James entered the fourth quarter of Game 1 of the NBA Finals one assist shy of a triple-double, and he got it about five minutes into the period. LeBron – who now has 12 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists in this game – now has the last three triple-doubles in the NBA Finals,…

  4. Report: Celtics tried to land Jefferson or Millsap at trade deadline

    May 31, 2013, 2:54 PM EDT

    Paul Millsap, Al Jefferson

    There has been buzz that Utah Jazz free agent Paul Millsap is the top off-season target of Danny Ainge and the Celtics. They certainly need help along the front line and Millsap would fit in that way. It’s just that the money thing makes it far more complex. But apparently Ainge was trying to land…

  5. Celtics ‘likely’ to buy out Paul Pierce? Reports conflict

    May 28, 2013, 8:36 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game Six

    The Celtics are at a crossroads. Again. For the first time since grouping Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, Boston didn’t win a playoff series. So, as has become annual tradition, the Celtics are considering tearing down their team and rebuilding. Perhaps, it’s finally time. Allen is already in Miami. Garnett might retire. Rajon…

  6. LeBron, Durant, Kobe headline All NBA First Team

    May 23, 2013, 1:27 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    Even before the season tipped off you had a pretty good sense that LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul would be All-NBA First Team — they are dominant players at or entering their peak. But Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan continue to defy father time. The two veterans round out the All NBA Team…

  7. Dennis Schroeder bows out of combine in Chicago, plans on skipping Eurocamp due to likely draft promise

    May 18, 2013, 5:30 PM EDT

    dennis schroeder

    Dennis Schroeder is an international prospect from Germany that has been rapidly moving up draft boards. The 19-year old point guard is listed at 6’2″ with a 6’7.25″ wingspan, and the speed and flair with which he plays is already eliciting comparisons to Rajon Rondo in terms of ability, body type, and style. Schroeder was…

    May 16, 2013, 3:21 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers looks on in the second quarter of their NBA basketball game against the Brooklyn Nets in New York

    Was there really any doubt? You didn’t really buy into the insane notion he would leave the Celtics to coach the Clippers, did you? Doc Rivers will be back to coach the Boston Celtics next season. GM Danny Ainge confirmed that to Gary Washburn the Boston Globe (via A. Sherrod Blakely at CSNNE.com) A league…

  9. Report: People close to Paul Pierce think Celtics don’t bring him back

    May 14, 2013, 8:40 AM EDT

    Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce

    The video above from Sunday on Comcast Sportsnet New England, it is CSNNE’s Boston Celtics sideline reporter Greg Dickerson debating what a lot of Celtics fans are debating right now: Tear it down now or bring Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and the rest of the band back for one more year.

  11. Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce say it’s too soon to talk future with the Celtics

    May 4, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    Immediately following the Celtics elimination from the playoffs at the hands of the Knicks in Game 6 on Friday, the questions began to turn to the team’s veteran core, and whether or not they’d be back in Boston next season. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are both under contract, but are also in very different…

    May 3, 2013, 11:59 AM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks Smith reacts as the Indiana Pacers West walks across the court in their first-round Eastern Conference playoff NBA basketball game in Atlanta

    This is going to be one wild night in the NBA — four first-round Game 6 showdowns. Four games where a team’s season hangs in the balance, and another has the chance to close out and advance to the second round. Who is most likely to force a Game 7? Let’s break it on down,…

  13. Ainge says Celtics face “very hard” decision with Pierce this summer

    May 2, 2013, 2:28 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Five

    Is it time to break up the Celtics and rebuild? Or does the way they played the last couple games, and once they get Rajon Rondo back, mean it’s time for one more run at it? That decision falls to Celtics decision maker Danny Ainge — the Celtics have until June 30 to buy out…

  14. Do Celtics have one complete game in them? More likely Knicks break out brooms Sunday.

    Apr 28, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett

    How many times have we seen this the last couple games of the Boston/New York series: The Celtics set their defense and for the first 15-17 seconds of the clock the clog everything the Knicks want to do. Their on-ball defenders are in the Knicks faces, their defensive rotations are sharp, there are no good…

    Apr 27, 2013, 3:27 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder guard Westbrook looks on during a timeout against the Los Angeles Lakers in the second half of their NBA basketball game in Oklahoma City

    Russell Westbrook underwent successful surgery to repair the torn meniscus in his right knee on Saturday, Oklahoma City officially announced. He will make a full recovery. That’s the good news if you’re an Oklahoma City Thunder fan. He will be out for these entire playoffs. That’s the bad news. The question of his return really…

  16. Another anemic Celtics’ second half means Knicks win, up 2-0

    Apr 24, 2013, 12:17 AM EDT

    New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony shoots over Boston Celtics' Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce during the fourth quarter in Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference basketball playoff series in New York

    Meet the second game, same as the first game… If you thought the Boston Celtics couldn’t have a worse second half than their disasterous 25-point effort last Saturday in Game 1 against the Knicks, then you don’t know how anemic the Celtics offense can become. This time they blew a six point halftime lead by…

  17. Celtics win three quarters, Knicks own fourth to take Game 1

    Apr 20, 2013, 6:35 PM EDT

    New York Knicks forward Carmelo Anthony reacts after hitting a three-point shot against the Boston Celtics in the first quarter of Game 1 of their NBA Eastern Conference Quarterfinals basketball playoff series in New York

    Basketball is about how you adapt and how you finish. The first 24 minutes Saturday’s Game 1 between Boston and New York went exactly how the Celtics want this first round series to unfold — Boston shot 53.6 overall and 4-10 from three, Jeff Green had 20 points on 10 shots, Avery Bradley had 11…

    Apr 19, 2013, 10:30 AM EDT

    Heat's Bosh and Bulls' Boozer await a rebound from a Miami free throw in the first half of their NBA basketball game in Miami

    There are some first round series in the NBA playoffs, like the one between the Heat and the Bucks, for example, that are nothing more than foregone conclusions. But there are others where the lower seed has a more than legitimate shot at beating a higher-seeded team winning and advancing, at least in theory. In…

    SEASON RECORDS New York:54-28, second seed in East Boston: 41-40, seven seed in East (the odd number of games is due to the cancelled one the day after the Boston Marathon tragedy, it did not impact the standings) SEASON SERIES The Knicks won the regular season 3-1, but both these teams went through seasons within…

  21. John Wall admits a number of point guards are better than him, still wants to get paid

    Apr 2, 2013, 11:15 AM EDT

    John Wall

    It remains one of the interesting questions of the NBA off-season: How much do the Wizards offer John Wall in a contract extension? The Wizards are going to make an offer and they’ve suggested it’s substantial. I think something close to Stephen Curry’s four year, $44 million seems about right. Since getting back and healthy…

    The Celtics came out against the streaking Heat on Monday night like it was a playoff game. The crowd certainly sounded like it was. Boston had guys like Jeff Green who stepped up big time.
