Rajon Rondo

  1. LeBron James: Still not making friends

    Nov 7, 2010, 10:37 AM EST

    New Jersey Nets v Miami Heat

    LeBron James is already a polarizing figure. He was becoming one prior to “The Decision,” and then his little TV special pushed things to a different stratosphere. But it’s not just those big events, or his Game 5 meltdown, or not shaking hands with the Magic after the Cavs’ 2009 elimination, or Kobe Bryant fans’…

  2. Rajon Rondo has plantar fasciitis. That’s bad.

    Nov 6, 2010, 4:40 PM EST

    Milwaukee Bucks v Boston Celtics

    There are worse words to hear regarding your starting All-Star point guard. “Torn ACL.” “Fractured tibia.” “Turned into Baron Davis.” But right up there is “plantar fasciitis,”  a foot condition that is a remarkably troublesome problem for NBA players. The condition is both sincerely painful to the point of distraction, yet not debilitating to keep…

  3. Rajon Rondo not just getting record assists, getting key ones

    Nov 4, 2010, 12:34 PM EST

    Rondo_dooling

    Rajon Rondo, assist machine. So far this season, Rondo is assisting on about 60 percent of his team’s baskets when he is on the floor (his assist rate). He has racked up more assists through the first five games of the season than any player in history has done in that same stretch. More than…

  4. Rajon Rondo dropin’ dimes

    Oct 30, 2010, 12:43 PM EST

    [kml_flashembed movie="http://www.youtube.com/v/66rQIH5s76w?version=3" height="240" width="320" /]

    Rajon Rondo had 24 assists last night as the Knicks went away from the old “make Rondo the shooter” book. And the Knicks lost. Somebody wrote the book for a reason. On another note: Are the first two clips here really assists? He makes the pass then the player (Pierce then Davis) put the ball…

  5. Cleveland’s healing process begins with a green light

    Oct 28, 2010, 2:25 AM EST

    Boston Celtics v Cleveland Cavaliers

    In the five stages of grief, the last is acceptance. Let’s back up. The folks in Cleveland are a long way from that. It’s going to take a few seasons and likely a new star for Cleveland to move past this summer, “The Decision,” and everything that came with it. They’ll be booing LeBron well…

  6. Game of the Night: Boston holds off Miami’s late surge

    Oct 27, 2010, 12:04 AM EST

    Paul Pierce, LeBron James

    Well, the Miami Heat won’t be going 82-0 this season. The experienced Celtics were able to handle the Heat on Tuesday night, winning by a final score of 88-80 and making the Heat look terrible at times, holding Miami to nine points in the first quarter and just 30 points in the first half. The…

  7. NBA cracks down on another serious issue: Upside down headbands

    Oct 26, 2010, 6:57 PM EST

    I’m glad the NBA League Offices took the summer to focus on the important things around the NBA. Such as a new addition to the league dress code for players that bans the wearing of headbands upside down. Because that was a big problem. But it is part of the new league rules according to…

  8. Birth of a rivalry: a Heat-Celtics primer

    Oct 26, 2010, 1:36 PM EST

    Miami Heat Media Day

    The Boston Celtics defeated the Cleveland Cavaliers in last year’s season opener, 95-89. They would go on to defeat the Cavaliers in six games, paving the way for Cleveland’s end as a contender. They began LeBron James’ year by beating him and they ended his year by beating him. Coincidence? Okay, yeah, probably so. When…

  9. Dwyane Wade practices, Miami Triad returned to full power

    Oct 23, 2010, 5:14 PM EST

    triad

    Yes, Mike Miller is on the shelf. And yes, they are bringing in Jerry Stackhouse to fill a role on the team. But in South Beach, as Dwyane Wade said this morning, the “band is back together.” “We’re excited about having the band back together,” Wade said after the two-hour, non-contact session. “It felt great.…

  10. Celtics won’t attack LeBron James at point guard

    Oct 23, 2010, 1:00 PM EST

    lebronboston

    Let’s take a second here, because, guys. You guys. We have actual basketball-related stuff that actually matters to talk about. I know. I’m excited too. Okay, back to your regularly scheduled program. Turns out the Celtics have been talking a little bit about how they’re going to defend the Heat come Thursday’s opener. Particularly, the…

  11. ESPN and Marvel Comics to team up for superhero-themed season preview

    Oct 13, 2010, 8:52 PM EST

    marvel_espn

    At this year’s New York Comic Con, Marvel Comics CEO Joe Quesada announced a partnership with ESPN to produce an extended series of promotional images featuring the game’s brightest stars and the staples of the Marvel Comics universe. There are 33 promo images in all (including one for each team) created by 31 different Marvel…

  12. The Celtics bond in the shadow of the Green Monster

    Oct 10, 2010, 9:21 AM EST

    fenway

    The Celtics are getting back to that whole “chemistry first” thing that took them so far in 2008. That’s been a primary focus for them at camp and in the preseason, trying to get close to one another like the “Ubuntu” crowd was two years ago.  They’ve spent a lot of nights just doing team…

  13. The 1997 Chicago Bulls vs. Genghis Khan. Who ya got?

    Sep 29, 2010, 3:12 PM EST

    This may be the best of the NBA 2K11 promo commercials yet…

  14. Kevin Garnett's intensity too much for Rondo — even at media day

    Sep 28, 2010, 9:00 PM EST

    Pretty classic video from Celtics media day, with Rajon Rondo trying to do an interview while Kevin Garnett goes, well, Kevin Garnett in the other room. (hat tip to Trey “where you goin?” Kerby at Ball Don’t Lie)

  15. Kevin Garnett is rested and healthy. Fear the Celtics.

    Sep 25, 2010, 5:00 PM EST

    Kevin Garnett is still the beating heart and key player for the Celtics. Ray Allen and Paul Pierce are crucial. Rajon Rondo’s importance grows daily. Kendrick Perkins and the O’Neals matter in the middle. Donkey and Shrek matter off the bench. But last season, Garnett’s health determined the Celtics fate. Which is why this quote…

  16. Rondo is better than Derrick Rose, David Lee (in NBA 2K11 anyway)

    Sep 21, 2010, 8:15 AM EST

    Anybody want some chips, onion rings? The NBA 2K11 commercials are pretty clever.

  17. Rondo says his heart was not totally in Team USA adventure this summer

    Sep 19, 2010, 5:56 PM EST

    USA Basketball has a consistent history of coming up with excuses for the last cut from the team. But in Rajon Rondo’s case this summer, they were more reasons that he withdrew as the 13th man. He told Ric Bucher of ESPN that he was hesitant to go in the first place (remember the in-or-out…

  18. NBA Season Preview: The Boston Celtics

    Sep 15, 2010, 12:44 PM EST

    Last season: 50-32 during the regular season, but 17-17 down the stretch as key players got rest and healthy for the playoffs. Then they played like the 2008 Celtics in the postseason and advanced all the way to Game 7 of the NBA Finals before falling. Head Coach: Doc Rivers, back for what may well…

  19. Celtics Doc Rivers going with the "pain of losing as motivation" route

    Sep 1, 2010, 6:55 PM EST

    Losing sucks. Getting close to the ultimate goal and losing really, really sucks. It’s why the Orlando Magic had a photo of the Lakers celebrating in Orlando at the entrance to their weight room, as a reminder. And as a result… okay, not a great example of results. But you get the idea. Doc Rivers…

  20. Rajon Rondo is Team USA's final cut, but why?

    Aug 24, 2010, 2:26 PM EST

    Team USA officially announced its 12-man roster this afternoon, and Rajon Rondo is not on it. That much we know for sure, but from there, everything starts to get a bit fuzzy. Rondo saw the writing on the wall with regard to his benching in Sunday’s exhibition game against Spain, but Jerry Colangelo’s explanation for…

  21. Rajon Rondo may be teetering on the Team USA bubble

    Aug 24, 2010, 12:16 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo’s DNP against Spain on Sunday could be read a number of ways. For my part, I naturally assumed that Rondo — who had started for Team USA up to that point and remains the team’s top perimeter defender and most natural playmaker — was held out in an act of gamesmanship by Mike…

  22. Rajon Rondo, Amar'e Stoudemire are "Educators"

    Aug 23, 2010, 5:41 PM EST

    Pretty amusing new commercial from Foot Locker, perfect for a little off-season refreshment. “Who’s been eating hummus?”

  23. Team USA edges Spain by a single point, but claims their most significant victory yet

    Aug 22, 2010, 6:47 PM EST

    Both Team USA and the Spanish national team were reluctant to reveal their full arsenals, but today’s friendly between the two FIBA powerhouses was easily the Americans’ most entertaining exhibition yet. Neither squad was flawless in their execution, but Team USA’s quality performance against their top opponent in the World Championships (even if Spain wasn’t…

  24. Can Boston start an all future hall of famers lineup?

    Aug 16, 2010, 8:15 AM EST

    We said it before — if this were 2000 the Boston Celtics would be an unstoppable force. And yes, I know Rajon Rondo would have been 14 at the time, wouldn’t have mattered with Shaq, Ray Allen, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce in their primes. But it is a decade later, and the Celtics have…

  25. Team USA: Defensive pressure and bombing threes

    Aug 11, 2010, 6:35 PM EST

    A couple days into the Team USA practices in New York — and with tip-off of the World Basketball Classic tomorrow at Radio City Music Hall — here are two things becoming clear about this team: They are going to use a lot of pressure defenses, and they are going to bomb threes. The defensive…
