Rajon Rondo

  1. Deserving or not Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade among All-Star starters in early voting returns

    Dec 12, 2013, 1:58 PM EST

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    It’s your game fans. The NBA All-Star Game is an exhibition filled with the players you vote to see. Whether those players deserve the honor based on their performance the first half of the season or not. Sometimes the most deserving guys don’t make the cut while guys hobbling through the season do. Which brings…

  2. Why question “When did basketball get so bad?” misses mark

    Dec 10, 2013, 11:40 AM EST

    Tahoe Celebrity Golf

    NBA basketball right now is entering a golden age. Just not everybody appreciates that. Charles Barkley swung by the Dan Patrick Show on Monday and together they sounded like grumpy old men telling you how basketball isn’t as good now as it was when they were fans of the sport. At least they didn’t throw…

  3. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At the quarter pole Portland takes the lead

    Dec 9, 2013, 4:53 PM EST

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    The general rule of thumb is 20 games into the season you can start to really trust the stats and the trends — in which case it’s good to be a Portland Trail Blazers fan. They move into the top slot with their recent wins over Indiana and OKC. 1. Trail Blazers (17-4, Last Week…

  4. Rumor: Carmelo Anthony recruiting Rajon Rondo to come to New York in 2015

    Dec 6, 2013, 1:45 PM EST

    New York Knicks v Boston Celtics - Game Two

    The USA Today has a fantastic feature speaking to Rajon Rondo’s high school coach, Steve Smith (not the player Steve Smith, different guy). It’s well done, you can learn about Rondo as a young player. Then came this interesting tidbit when Smith was asked if he thought Rondo could bounce all the way back from…

  5. Ainge says Rajon Rondo still weeks away from return

    Dec 5, 2013, 4:37 PM EST

    Detroit Pistons v Boston Celtics

    The Boston Celtics may be on top of the Atlantic Division — at 8-12, but still on top of it — that doesn’t mean Rajon Rondo is rushing back to the court following ACL surgery. In his weekly radio interview with Toucher and Rich on 98.5 The Sports Hub Ainge talked about weeks not days,…

  6. Report: Rondo’s timeline to return to practice is “his decision”

    Dec 3, 2013, 11:30 AM EST

    via @SherrodbCSN

    He wasn’t doing full contact 5-on-5, but Rajon Rondo was back at practice for the Boston Celtics Monday, tweets A. Sherrod Blakely at CSNNE.com. You can see the proof to the right. It’s a good sign for Celtics fans. But how soon can he be back to full on practices may be up to Rondo.…

  7. John Wall: ‘I’m the best point guard in the league’

    Nov 27, 2013, 11:00 AM EST

    Los Angeles Clippers v Washington Wizards

    John Wall has played pretty well lately. In his last three games, he’s averaging 33.0 points on 61.4 percent shooting, 6.0 assists, 5.3 rebounds and 2.7 steals per contest. The Wizards are 2-1 in that span. It’s a fantastic three-game stretch, but let’s not get carried away. Aw, shoot, let’s get carried away. "I'm the…

  8. Still-injured Rajon Rondo beats MarShon Brooks in race

    7648fe3eb421fa0ac565d2913c3e46e7

    Rajon Rondo is fast. No, I don’t mean that in a “Rondo is fast when healthy” sense. He’s flat-out fast at this very moment (hat tip: Scott Rafferty of Hardwood Paroxysm): Announcement: Pro Basketball Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $85,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Wednesday night’s games. It’s $25 to join and first…

  9. Watch Rajon Rondo cringe at Celtics’ box score

    Nov 20, 2013, 4:11 PM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics

    During the Celtics’ game against the Rockets on Tuesday, Rajon Rondo asked for a box score. I best he wishes he hadn’t (hat tip: Deadspin). I don’t know which stat in particular troubled Rondo so much, but there were many to choose from. Boston was on its way to losing by 24, shooting 32.3 percent…

  10. Celtics not talking Rondo trades; however Wallace and Humphries are a different story

    Nov 19, 2013, 2:58 PM EST

    O.J. Mayo, Gerald Wallace

    We’ve written it here before and we’ll write it again — don’t bet on the Boston Celtics trading Rajon Rondo. Danny Ainge thinks Rondo is a potential franchise cornerstone and he’s not moving Rondo for anything other than another cornerstone. However, the Celtics are willing to deal other high-priced veterans on their roster to gain…

  11. Danny Ainge tries to squash any Rajon Rondo trade rumors

    Nov 18, 2013, 2:34 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    No, Celtics power broker Danny Ainge doesn’t want to trade Rajon Rondo. Why would you think that? Oh, because he’s looked at it seriously in the past… well that’s the past. Things are different now; Rondo is the cornerstone of this team. At least, that’s what Ainge is selling. After a weekend of Rondo to…

  12. PBT NBA Power Rankings: San Antonio slides into top slot

    Nov 18, 2013, 1:56 PM EST

    San Antonio Spurs v Atlanta Hawks

    Another season, another year of the Spurs just making teams pay with their execution. Portland is flying up the rankings, on the other end Utah continues to anchor the bottom.   1. Spurs (9-1, Last Week No. 2). The winners of seven in a row, they move into the top spot as they appear the…

  13. Report: Boston willing to do bad contract swap with Knicks

    Nov 18, 2013, 11:15 AM EST

    Charlotte Bobcats v New York Knicks

    There will be no Rajon Rondo for Iman Shumpert and pieces deal going down between the Celtics and Knicks — Boston GM Danny Ainge rightfully laughed that one off. But there might be a Celtics/Knicks deal that Boston officials would consider — a swap of bad contracts. Chris Broussard of ESPN threw up this tweet.…

  14. Report: Knicks covet Rajon Rondo, made laughable offer to Boston

    Nov 17, 2013, 10:31 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    It is possible Danny Ainge will trade Rajon Rondo — he seriously talked offers for him when they had Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, you think he won’t consider it now that they are rebuilding? But he’s not giving Rondo away for the spare change in the couch. Which brings us to this note about…

  15. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EST

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…

  16. Danny Ainge says not to expect Rondo back until December

    Nov 14, 2013, 1:09 PM EST

    via @RajonRondo on twitter

    The Boston Celtics roller coaster of an early season continued Wednesday — they lost the first four, won the next four, then showed up against the Bobcats Wednesday and simply got outworked. Still, a 4-5 start without Rajon Rondo on the roster is better than expected… and by the way, when might Rondo return from…

  17. Don’t look now but Celtics have won four in a row, lead Atlantic Division

    Nov 12, 2013, 11:20 AM EST

    Orlando Magic v Boston Celtics

    The Boston Celtics have won four in a row, improved to .500 (4-4), and right now that is good enough to lead the Atlantic Division (tied with Philadelphia). After a 0-4 start I didn’t think I’d be writing that sentence. It certainly beats even Celtics’ fans expectations. There are things we can pick apart with…

  18. Rajon Rondo talks fashion for new NBA “Off the Court” site

    Nov 8, 2013, 6:47 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo GQ

    In a world seemingly obsessed with celebrity culture, people care and follow what players do off the court. Gaming, fashion, music — fans want to know what players are into. So the NBA has launched a new site to give the people what they want called “Off the Court” and one of the first features…

  19. Five NBA players likely to get traded this season

    Oct 29, 2013, 3:35 PM EST

    Jameer Nelson

    When I started compiling this list more than a week ago, Marcin Gortat was the guy on top of it — then his trade happened earlier than anyone expected. The Wizards want to make the playoffs this year, the Suns want to tank and so they had a common ground. Now who is most likely…

  20. Rondo says he is “87%” and “won’t come back unless I know I’m myself again”

    Oct 24, 2013, 11:07 AM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    There still is no timeline, no date set for Rajon Rondo to return to the Celtics from the ACL injury he suffered last January — yet there are positive signs that time is near. He has been working out on the court daily and said he got fitted recently for a knee brace, which happens…

  22. Gerald Wallace: Celtics’ coaches didn’t like my criticism of team’s effort

    Oct 23, 2013, 9:30 AM EST

    Gerald Wallace

    It’s always risky when a player criticizes his teammates, but Gerald Wallace dug into the Celtics’ selfishness and lack of effort during the preseason. Wallace, a well-established veteran, had to play hard to find his way in the NBA, so he knows what it takes to succeed in the league. And when Boston wasn’t showing…

  23. Gerald Wallace calls out Celtics’ teammates on effort, being “selfish”

    Oct 21, 2013, 11:45 AM EST

    Gerald Wallace

    It’s going to be a long season for Boston — a couple seasons ago they were up 3-2 on the Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals, now they are looking at how many lottery ping pong balls they can rack up. But for a professional like Gerald Wallace, what is inexcusable is a lack of…

  24. PBT EXTRA: Atlantic Division Preview

    Oct 15, 2013, 8:38 AM EST

    Carmelo Anthony, Gerald Wallace

    It’s that time of year: PBT Extra is back. We’re going to do division previews covering the entire league over the next couple of weeks, with Kay Adams throwing me some interesting questions and me trying to provide equally interesting answers. (How interesting you think my answers are usually aligns with how much you agree…

  25. Coach Rajon Rondo? He says he might like that title after his playing days.

    Oct 9, 2013, 1:44 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    Coach Rajon Rondo? No doubt the basketball IQ is there but does he really have the demeanor to soothe egos and cajole the best out of players? Right how he’s trying. Sidelined while recovering from ACL surgery (there is no timetable for his return) he’s trying to help out a little with advice and coaching…
