Rajon Rondo

  1. Wednesday NBA grades: Love, Rubio play like they should stay together

    Mar 20, 2014, 3:29 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio

    Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love work well together lifting Timberwolves past Mavericks. Also, Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks just keep on rolling.

  2. Wednesday And-1 Links: LeBron has his own flavor of Sprite now

    Mar 19, 2014, 6:27 PM EDT

    Heat Media Day Basketball

    Of course LeBron James helped design his own flavor of Sprite. You expected otherwise?

  3. Phil Jackson promises return of system basketball to New York, wants ‘Melo to be part of it

    Mar 18, 2014, 2:34 PM EDT

    Phil Jackson

    You can’t win titles in the NBA without elite talent. Superstars matter. It is the nature of the sport. However there is more to it than that, nobody ever just rolled the ball out and won a ring. Franchises have to put those stars in a system that benefits them but more importantly benefits the…

  4. Rajon Rondo after latest Celtics loss: ‘I pretty much blame this on myself’

    Mar 17, 2014, 11:39 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    Rondo tries to take the blame for Boston’s overtime loss to the Pelicans. But he wasn’t the one guarding Anthony Davis.

  5. Phil Jackson to Knicks could work. It probably won’t, but it could.

    Mar 15, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Jackson

    Ultimately Thomas Wolfe will be proven right, you can’t go home again. Not even Phil Jackson. It’s easy to sit back and list the reasons Jackson’s return to the team that drafted him, taking over basketball operations of the New York Knicks, will not work: James Dolan; Jackson has never had any front office experience before;…

  6. Rajon Rondo won’t play back-to-backs rest of season

    Mar 14, 2014, 12:44 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo, Deron Williams, Joe Johnson

    The Boston Celtics and Rajon Rondo have had better days behind them. In front of them too, they hope. Boston will miss the playoffs for the first time in seven seasons, and Rondo missed the All-Star Game for the first time in four years. To avoid repeating either outcome, Rondo must get fully healthy. That’s…

  7. Sunday NBA grades: All hail the unstoppable Jodie Meeks

    Mar 10, 2014, 12:59 AM EDT

    Jodie Meeks, Kevin Durant

    A career-high 42 points on just 18 shots. Not bad.

  8. Josh Smith fantasizes about playing with Rajon Rondo again

    Mar 9, 2014, 8:00 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Atlanta Hawks

    Just like old times at Oak Hill Academy?

  9. Is Carmelo Anthony’s smart play to opt in and play out contract with Knicks?

    Mar 7, 2014, 5:46 PM EDT

    New York Knicks vs Miami Heat

    According to every reliable source, Carmelo Anthony is going to opt out of the final year of his contract this season and look either to re-sign a five-year deal with the Knicks or move on to another team to be part of a contender. If Anthony wants to jump ship and go somewhere like oft-mentioned…

  10. Don’t look now but Rajon Rondo has a steady three point shot

    Mar 5, 2014, 2:50 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    Last season before his injury, Rajon Rondo shot 24 percent from three. The season before that 23.8 percent. Before that 23.3 percent. His career high season was 31.3. Until now — Rondo is taking more than twice as many as he has before and his hitting a very respectable 36.4 percent of them this season.…

  11. Report: Carmelo Anthony’s camp doesn’t want to wait for 2015 Knicks rebuild

    Mar 5, 2014, 1:42 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v New York Knicks

    Every player says it. Carmelo Anthony is saying it. It’s is some variant of “I’m not about the money, I’m about winning.” Then the money goes on the table and it’s all about the money. That’s the choice facing Carmelo Anthony this summer — a big payday from the Knicks and trust them to rebuild…

  12. Report: Lakers will wait for 2015 free agents like Kevin Love unless they can get LeBron (Sorry, Melo)

    Mar 5, 2014, 10:45 AM EDT

    Kevin Love, Jordan Hill, Wesley Johnson

    The Lakers are poised to make a big free agent splash this summer or the next, and Steve Nash is the lynchpin to the decision. If the Lakers want to go big this offseason, they’ll use the stretch provision on Nash, spreading the amount they owe him across the cap the next three years. But…

  13. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Miami putting its foot down on the gas

    Mar 3, 2014, 3:43 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v New York Knicks

    The PBT power rankings have returned with not a lot of change from last week — Miami, Indiana, San Antonio and Oklahoma City are the top four (in whatever order you wish) then there is a gap to the Clippers, Rockets and teams trying to knock on that door. Meanwhile the Sixers look like they…

  14. Kobe Bryant says Lakers’ revenge will be “sweet” and “quick”

    Mar 3, 2014, 1:16 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Press Conferences-Media Availabilty 2014

    This would be the definition of playing to the fan base. Although I’m sure Kobe Bryant believes it. There has been plenty of schadenfreude around the league — from other front offices to other fan bases — as the Lakers have fallen into being a hot mess this season. They entered the season with a…

  15. Wednesday night NBA grades: How about that Kyrie Irving?

    Feb 27, 2014, 4:05 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while you and your friends debated canned vs. bottled beer…. Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers. He wasn’t in attack mode, he was in seek-and-destroy mode. With Dion Waiters and basically everyone who can shoot outside 15 feet injured he knows he has to be the man…

  16. Celtics choosing to move past Rondo’s unexcused absence

    Feb 27, 2014, 12:01 AM EDT

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

    Rajon Rondo skipped his team’s trip to Sacramento late Friday night, preferring to stay in Los Angeles to celebrate his 28th birthday with friends and family instead. Rondo hasn’t been playing on the second night of back-to-backs since returning from injury this season, and wasn’t scheduled to play Saturday night against the Kings. But he…

  17. Rajon Rondo skips Celtics trip to Sacramento without permission, may face team discipline

    Feb 25, 2014, 10:55 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo hasn’t been playing in second games of back-to-backs for the Celtics, as he continues to gain strength after missing most of last season and the first part of this one with a knee injury. That little detail, along with the fact that friends and family were in Los Angeles to celebrate his birthday…

  18. Carmelo Anthony admits his optimism is being tested. What about desire to stay in New York?

    Feb 24, 2014, 12:52 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Orlando Magic

    With 26 games left to go in the season, the New York Knicks are 5.5 games out of the final playoff spot in the East. Let that sink in for a second. The eight seed Atlanta Hawks are on pace to win 39 games this season, to get there the Knicks need to go 18-8…

  19. Celtics GM Ainge on Rondo: “I believe he loves the city of Boston”

    Feb 21, 2014, 11:29 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs Vs. Boston Celtics At TD Garden

    Another trade deadline, another flurry of Rajon Rondo rumors. Once again when the dust settles Rondo is still a Celtic. There’s a pattern here. As with past years, reports from other teams are that the Celtics were asking the world for Rondo (the buzz is they wanted Chandler Parsons and two first round picks from…

  20. The Extra Pass: What’s behind the slow trade deadline

    Feb 21, 2014, 8:06 AM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    That makes two years in a row. There was more activity at the 2014 NBA trade deadline than in 2013 (25 players got moved this year), but once again the deadline was about shifting around bench players and cap space, there were no difference makers moved. Of the 25 players who changed teams at this…

  21. Trade Deadline Winners/Losers: It’s a good day to be a Pacers fan

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:24 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    It was the day of the role player. There was a fair amount of action at the NBA’s trade deadline but none of it involved the big names that floated around a little — no Rajon Rondo or Pau Gasol, and Kevin Love was never in play. Still, some teams made smart moves, and some…

  22. Trading for a star mid-season to make an immediate impact? Don’t count on it

    Feb 20, 2014, 9:15 AM EDT

    Deron Williams, Carmelo Anthony

    The Luol Deng trade gave us something we hadn’t seen in three years – a star dealt mid-season. The trade might even give us something we haven’t seen in even longer – a star dealt mid-season actually improving his new team. Teams make mid-season trades for several reasons, but we’re going to examine one archetype…

  23. Rondo on dealing with trade rumors: ‘I can only control so much’

    Feb 20, 2014, 12:02 AM EDT

    rondo

    All of the chatter leading up to Thursday’s trade deadline is a blast for fans to take in, but it’s far less enjoyable for the players whose names continually pop up as being part of reported rumors or discussions. Rajon Rondo is an interesting case, because he seems like exactly the type of player a…

  24. Kings’ GM denies that Ben McLemore has been part of trade talks

    Feb 19, 2014, 12:35 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Portraits 2014

    Ben McLemore is part of the Kings future and general manager Pete D’Alessandro wants you to know that. In no uncertain terms. McLemore’s name popped in a trade rumor where he was part of a package suggested for Boston’s Rajon Rondo, but the deal died because Sacramento knows there is little chance (if any) Rondo…
