Rajon Rondo

  1. Rajon Rondo tweet hints he will return Friday vs. Lakers… in a very Rondo way

    Jan 14, 2014, 8:45 AM EDT

    Charlotte Bobcats v Boston Celtics

    We passed along a report last week that said Boston’s Rajon Rondo was targeting a return Jan. 17 — this Friday against the rival Los Angeles Lakers. A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com also said that date was the goal. Rondo basically confirmed that on twitter Monday night — but in a very Rondo way. 29,233,380…

    Toronto Raptors vs Indiana Pacers

    Here are the weekly PBT power rankings, with some improving teams out of New York.

  3. Report: Rajon Rondo plans return Jan. 17 against Lakers

    Jan 10, 2014, 5:54 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Boston Celtics

    Boston is 13-23 this season and has been a solid defensive team — signs that Brad Stevens can coach at the NBA level (Brandon Bass told PBT he was impressed with the young mentor). The question has been: How good will the Celtics be with Rajon Rondo in the lineup? We may find out sooner…

  4. Stephen Curry moves past Chris Paul as starter in latest NBA All-Star balloting

    Jan 9, 2014, 3:24 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Golden State Warriors - Game Six

    We can take Chris Paul’s brilliance as a point guard for granted because he’s the guy throwing the lobs, not the guy finishing the highlight play. Paul can score and take over a game, but his mastery of the point guard play is subtler than that — he takes over games by dictating flow and…

  5. Whether with Celtics or youth and fitness, Brandon Bass is trying to lead by example

    Jan 8, 2014, 2:44 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    It’s a tough year in Boston. Players are fighting through snow banks to get to a practice facility or games, but once inside it doesn’t feel a lot warmer. They are part of a 13-22 team that has lost eight of nine and as of today wouldn’t even make the playoffs is a sad Eastern…

  6. It’s official: Grizzlies/Celtics/Thunder three-team trade involving Jerryd Bayless, Courtney Lee

    Jan 7, 2014, 12:39 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    For a couple days you’ve been reading about a potential Jerryd Bayless swap for Courtney Lee, with the Thunder jumping in to offload Ryan Gomes. Now it’s official, it has been announced by the teams. Here is who gets what: Memphis Grizzlies: Lee plus a 2016 second round pick from Boston. Boston Celtics: Bayless and…

  7. Will Cavaliers make the playoffs after trading for Luol Deng?

    Jan 7, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT

    luol deng

    The deal between the Bulls and the Cavaliers that went down Monday night was all about the long-term for Chicago, and more about this season in Cleveland. Luol Deng will be a free agent this summer, and after reportedly turning down a contract extension worth $30 million over three years, it was clear he was…

  8. Report: Thunder become third team in Grizzlies/Celtics swap of Bayless/Lee

    Jan 6, 2014, 9:09 PM EDT

    GOMES_RYAN

    We told you Sunday that it looked like the Boston Celtics and Memphis Grizzlies were close to swapping Jerryd Bayless and Courtney Lee. Why do it? Because the Celtics would save money in future years and while they get another ball handling guard (which they could use while Rajon Rondo remains out) they really don’t…

  9. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Golden State climbing rankings fast

    Jan 6, 2014, 2:29 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

    The top two teams in the East are the top two teams on PBT’s Power Rankings, but with their current nine-game win streak Golden State has moved in as the top ranked team in the West. If they keep defending like this they are legitimate contenders come playoff time.   1. Pacers (27-6, Last Week…

  10. Rondo says he ‘might pop up and just play’ in D-League before returning to Celtics

    Jan 3, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo heading to the D-League to get some work in was an idea that was made public a few days ago by Celtics head coach Brad Stevens. The D-League has historically been used as a player development tool more than a place for players to find their way back from injury, and it would…

  11. Rajon Rondo could eventually head to D-League for some rehab

    Dec 30, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo is working his way back from his torn ACL and while he is working out it could well be a month before we see him step on an NBA court. But we might see him on a D-League court sooner. It what would be a rare move, the Celtics are considering sending Rondo…

  12. LeBron James strains groin, questionable for Saturday vs. Portland

    Dec 28, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    If you were looking forward to a full strength Miami Heat team taking on the Trail Blazers Saturday, you may be disappointed. LeBron James strained his groin in the second quarter of the Heat’s loss to the Kings Friday night and is questionable for the anticipated Saturday showdown, so reports Ethan Skolnick of Bleacher Report.…

  13. Report: Owner Dolan told Knicks no trades, no coaching changes coming

    Dec 27, 2013, 12:35 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v New York Knicks

    There are a lot of Knicks fans hoping this is the vote of confidence coaches seem to get just before they get canned. But in what appears to be an attempt to get Knicks players to stop looking over their shoulder, owner James Dolan told his team Thursday no changes are coming, reports Marc Stein…

  14. Report: Knicks plan is to have Rondo force trade to play with them

    Dec 26, 2013, 7:50 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics

    The Knicks need to rebuild. You can throw blame at Mike Woodson all you want, and he deserves some, but the Knicks roster construction is flawed. They went heavy with an older roster last season and drained a lot of three balls on their way to 54-wins and the second round of the playoffs, but…

  15. Latest NBA All-Star balloting released; LeBron, Durant leading vote getters

    Dec 26, 2013, 3:12 PM EDT

    NBA All-Star Game 2013

    We warned you this would be the case — there are not many changes in the All-Star Game fan voting as we move through the process. Who you vote for early tends to be who you vote for late. The fans choose the starters for the annual exhibition game and as of Thursday when the…

  16. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Santa brings presents to Blazers, Thunder; lumps of coal to Atlantic

    Dec 23, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Oklahoma City almost took over the top spot in the rankings, until they laid an egg Sunday night. The Blazers hold on for another week, but they didn’t look elite last week even in their wins and this week sees a few big tests.   1. Trail Blazers (23-5, Last Week No. 1). If the…

  17. Rajon Rondo predicts late January, early February return

    Dec 23, 2013, 10:24 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Vs. Boston Celtics At TD Garden

    Rajon Rondo is back on the practice court with his Boston Celtics, but he’s still a ways away from a return. Rondo spoke to the media after the Celtics were routed by the Indiana Pacers Sunday and for the first time gave a vague timeline for his return, reports A. Sherrod Blakely at CSNNE.com. “My…

  18. LeBron, Kobe top NBA jersey sales list during holidays

    Dec 19, 2013, 12:51 PM EDT

    Heat Media Day Basketball

    He’s the reigning NBA MVP, won the last two NBA titles, earned the last two the Finals MVPs… And not surprisingly, LeBron James sells a lot of jerseys. The NBA released the top selling jerseys from the start of this season (October through December this year), which includes the holiday buying rush, and not surprisingly…

  19. Report: Celtics may be frontrunners for Asik; would move Bass, Lee, pick

    Dec 18, 2013, 4:07 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Houston Rockets

    Houston’s Omer Asik is going to get traded Thursday. Not Wednesday —deals are still being hammered out. Not Friday — anyone acquired this day or later can’t be traded again at the February trade deadline in a combined deal with other teammates. It will happen Thursday. It looks more and more like the Celtics will…

  20. Updated Report: Boston Celtics talking Rondo trade with Kings, multiple sources deny

    Dec 17, 2013, 3:47 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Boston Celtics

    UPDATE 3:47 pm: It didn’t take long for multiple quality sources to shoot this idea down. Spoke w/source moments ago who said the latest Rajon Rondo rumor that he will be traded to the Sacramento #Kings, is "not happening."— A. Sherrod Blakely (@SherrodbCSN) December 17, 2013 FYI re: Rajon Rondo rumor, Celtics & Kings have…

  21. Rajon Rondo to make call on Rajon Rondo’s return date

    Dec 16, 2013, 9:36 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    The doctors will get their word in — they will have to clear him. But at the end of the day, Rajon Rondo gets to decide when Rajon Rondo returns, something coach Brad Stevens said before the Celtics game Monday night, as reported at Celticsblog.com. “I don’t see how it could be anything else,” Stevens…

  22. PBT Extra: Kobe, Wade are All-Stars? Plus when does Asik get dealt?

    Dec 16, 2013, 5:07 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    To answer your first question: I am fighting off a cold, that’s why I sound like that. Raspy voices are in, I hear. As for the topics… If you’re a basketball purist who thinks the All-Star Game should be filled with the players who performed the best the first half of the season… well life…

  23. PBT’s NBA Power Rankings: Stability at the top, trades could shake up bottom

    Dec 16, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    There is no movement at the top of the standings as the top five teams went 15-1 last week (and that one loss was to another top 5 team). However, get past that five and you get into teams like the Rockets, Suns and others where trades could really change rankings as we move toward…

  24. Rajon Rondo cleared for full contact, expected to return for Celtics in January

    Dec 15, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Detroit Pistons v Boston Celtics

    The Celtics have been exceeding expectations this season under new head coach Brad Stevens, and are currently in line for the four seed in the Eastern Conference playoff picture despite the team’s losing record. Things would appear to be only getting better with the addition of All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo to the lineup, considering…

  25. Carmelo Anthony and Rajon Rondo deny recruitment rumors

    Dec 12, 2013, 2:33 PM EDT

    112ccd7d6c982f04e2f1e3bf958674c1

    Rajon Rondo’s high school coach said Carmelo Anthony was recruiting Rondo, a 2015 free agent, to New York. As Kurt wrote, those types of conversations happen all the time. Of course, nobody publicly admits to them while they’re ongoing (except Chandler Parsons, who bragged about recruiting Dwight Howard to the Rockets). Anthony, via Ian Begley…
