  1. Report: Kings offered McLemore, Thomas, picks for Rondo. Didn’t happen.

    Feb 18, 2014, 1:30 AM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Boston Celtics

    The Kings have their foundation up front in DeMarcus Cousins, but they need another elite player on the perimeter. Their GM Pete D’Alessandro knows it and is going after that piece. Like trying to land Rajon Rondo. Check out this interesting tidbit from Yahoo Sports’ Marc Spears in his weekly power rankings (hat tip Celtics’…

    Syracuse v Wake Forest

    Jim Boeheim, who coached Carmelo Anthony at Syracuse, discussed Melo’s pending free agency with Jim Rome (hat tip: Matt Moore of Eye on Basketball). Boeheim: What I’d tell him is what I would tell any NBA great player. If you’re a great player in the NBA, for you to be recognized as a great player,…

  3. Report: If you want Rajon Rondo or Jeff Green then Celtics want a lot in return

    Feb 12, 2014, 9:53 PM EST

    rondo

    This is exactly what Flip Saunders was talking about when he suggested this will be a slower than expected trade deadline because teams are not willing to part with picks in perceived good drafts. There is buzz out of Boston that GM Danny Ainge is shopping around just about everyone on the roster —Rajon Rondo…

  4. Kings’ Isaiah Thomas calls Celtics’ Jerryd Bayless a ‘fake tough guy’ after on-court incident (VIDEO)

    thomas bayless

    This is yet another example of why you don’t give a max contract to a player with the temperament of DeMarcus Cousins without the presence of any veterans on the roster to help with the team’s leadership. But this is only about him tangentially, so we’ll revisit this in a moment. Late in the fourth…

  5. Coach Stevens says it “doesn’t look like” Rondo plays Friday vs. Kings

    Feb 7, 2014, 4:42 PM EST

    rondo

    It’s not about this season, it’s about the next five or 10 in Boston. So with Rajon Rondo sore — he missed practice on Thursday because of it, he’s been a busy man since his return — it is very possible he doesn’t play on Friday. Teams want to take care of their franchise face…

    Feb 3, 2014, 2:21 PM EST

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Brooklyn Nets

    A look at PBT’s power rankings show basically the only thing that really changed this week was the signature on the Spaulding balls — Adam Silver’s signature is in play. Aside that Durant has the Thunder on top and the Lakers continue fall like the lead balloon they are. 1. Thunder (38-11, Last Week No.…

  7. Rondo uses signature ball fake to lose defender before scoring (VIDEO)

    Feb 3, 2014, 9:31 AM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo looked like his old self in Sunday’s lone NBA contest, finishing with 19 points on 9-of-11 shooting to go along with 10 assists and six rebounds to get his first win since returning to Boston’s lineup this season. This play, where Rondo used his signature behind-the-back ball fake to lose a defender before…

  8. The Extra Pass: What the NBA gets that the NFL doesn’t, plus Sunday’s recap

    Feb 3, 2014, 8:00 AM EST

    Cleveland Cavaliers v New York Knicks

    This past weekend, David Stern retired as commissioner of the NBA. After 30 years, he left as quietly as someone of his stature could. Instead of choosing a time where the NBA was in the spotlight to have his final farewell, Stern left in the middle of Super Bowl hoopla, when the coverage of his…

  9. Celtics get first win since Rondo’s return by beating Magic

    Feb 2, 2014, 8:00 PM EST

    rondo

    Rajon Rondo returned to the Celtics lineup Jan. 17 from an ACL injury that prematurely ended his 2012-13 season. Boston’s only win since then, however, had been one against the Wizards that came on Jan. 22, in a game where Rondo was held out on the second night of a back-to-back as a precaution. That…

  10. Brooklyn Nets set NBA record-low with 17 rebounds in game

    Feb 1, 2014, 2:00 PM EST

    Serge Ibaka, Andray Blatche

    The Brooklyn Nets grabbed 17 rebounds in a loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday. 17! That set a new NBA record for fewest rebounds in a game, breaking the 18 the Detroit Pistons had against the Charlotte Hornets on November 28, 2001. Again, 17! This season, a single player has grabbed at least…

  11. Rondo sits out second game of back-to-back against Sixers as a precaution

    Jan 29, 2014, 9:07 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo has appeared in six games for the Celtics since returning from ACL surgery a couple of weeks ago, but given the drop-off in talent on the roster from when he suited up last season, the 0-6 record Boston has endured is somewhat understandable. It also conveniently factors into the team’s decision to take…

  12. Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett return to Boston for first time as Brooklyn Nets

    Jan 26, 2014, 2:00 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Brooklyn Nets

    BOSTON – Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett return to Boston today as conquering heroes. Centerpieces of the Celtics’ 2008 championship team, Pierce and Garnett will always be heroes of the past for fans here. But now, they’ve gone from goats to heroes of the present with the Brooklyn Nets, who are an NBA-best 9-1 in…

  13. Rajon Rondo offered contract extension by Celtics, says he wouldn’t mind finishing his career in Boston

    Jan 25, 2014, 3:30 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Celtics GM Danny Ainge revealed earlier this week that the team offered Rajon Rondo a contract extension roughly a month ago, one which the All-Star point guard politely declined. Ainge wasn’t surprised that the offer was turned down, and in fact he seemed to expect it. From CBS Boston (via SB Nation): “In the Collective…

  14. LaMarcus Aldridge thinks he should have been an All-Star starter

    Jan 24, 2014, 2:53 PM EST

    Boston Celtics v Portland Trail Blazers

    If the NBA coaches and players were voting for who got to be an All-Star Game starter, LaMarcus Aldridge would be a lock in the West. But the fans wanted to see other guys (Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin and Kevin Love is your West starting frontcourt) so Aldridge will again be selected by the coaches…

  15. Let’s actually set criteria for selecting All-Stars

    Jan 22, 2014, 2:00 PM EST

    Miami Heat v Toronto Raptors

    Has Dwyane Wade or Kyle Lowry had a better season? Lowry smashes Wade in win shares (6.4 to 3.1) and tops him in Estimated Wins Added (6.5 to 5.7), too. There’s value in staying on the court, and because Wade has been hobbled by knee issues this year, it’s clear Lowry, an impressive and consistent…

    NBA: Pelicans v Mavericks

    To them this is more than a business — Mark Cuban and Dirk Nowitzki are friends. Technically they are boss and employee, but neither sees it that way. “I kick his ass whenever I’ve wanted to,” Cuban said last week, joking around about his friend the way you ride yours. “It’s kind of like we…

    Jan 21, 2014, 11:22 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Boston Celtics

    There haven’t been a lot of bright spots in the Celtics’ season, Avery Bradley has been one of them — healthy in his fourth NBA season he has broken out to average 14.8 points a game, shoot 36.5 percent from three and as always be a pesky, impressive defender on the perimeter. But now he…

  18. Celtics to be without Jerryd Bayless at least a week due to toe injury

    Jan 21, 2014, 2:00 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Boston Celtics

    Since coming over from Memphis Jerryd Bayless has averaged almost 20 minutes a night for Boston, averaging 7.1 points (on just 38 percent shooting) and three assists a night. However Bayless sprained his toe, is out Tuesday night against Miami and will be out 7-10 days, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. Right now Rajon…

  19. Kris Humphries says he wants to stay in Boston

    Jan 21, 2014, 12:09 PM EST

    Toronto Raptors v Boston Celtics

    In a few weeks, close to the trading deadline, Kris Humphries could be playing in another uniform in another city. Humphries is upping his trade value with his play since becoming a starter in Boston, averaging 9.7 points and 9.1 rebounds a game plus doing all the dirty work inside he is known for. Actually,…

  20. Rondo on Celtics-Heat: ‘It’s not a rivalry. But I still don’t like those guys.’

    Jan 21, 2014, 9:31 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo has returned from injury, but he’s the only star veteran remaining from a team that won a championship in 2008, and had many memorable playoff battles in the years that followed — including against the Miami Heat. While there may no longer be a rivalry between the two teams based on the talent…

  21. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At season midway Pacers, Portland on top (not exactly Stern’s dream finals)

    Jan 20, 2014, 1:20 PM EST

    Indiana Pacers v New Orleans Pelicans

    We’re at the midway point in the NBA season and the Indiana Pacers sit on top of the ProBasketballTalk NBA power rankings — we knew they’d be good but they have been better in the regular season than expected. Portland is second, and that is a surprise, but also a team on a win streak.…

  22. Kevin Garnett: ‘I would do anything for’ Rajon Rondo

    Jan 20, 2014, 11:20 AM EST

    Miami Heat v Boston Celtics - Game Six

    It can be a little difficult keeping track of the feuds among the members of the Boston Celtics’ last title team. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce don’t like Ray Allen. Doc Rivers reportedly tried to fight Rajon Rondo. Rondo said he “didn’t feel anything” when Garnett and Pierce were traded. It’s dizzying. But between Garnet…

  23. Rajon Rondo on aftermath of first game back: ‘I’m alive’

    Jan 20, 2014, 9:15 AM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    If the Boston Celtics are going to trade Rajon Rondo, they need him to prove he’s healthy. Though the Celtics could theoretically be willing to sell low, NBA teams are typically too risk-averse to trade for a player in Rondo’s condition. He needn’t be the same player he was pre-injury, but he at least must…

  24. Report: GMs around the league expect Celtics to trade Rondo

    Jan 19, 2014, 5:00 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Boston Celtics

    Rajon Rondo made his return to the court on Friday in Boston’s loss to the Lakers, so now that he’s back playing, the reports have already begun to ramp back up that the Celtics will look to trade him as soon as the right offer comes along, largely because he won’t fit into the team’s…

    Rajon Rondo, Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant is still a spectator these days, not expecting to return from the fractured bone in his knee until sometime in February. With his Lakers taking on the Celtics in Boston on Friday, memories of better times were brought to the surface, and Bryant was among those sad to see the Paul Pierce and…
