The latest of the evolution, that has become Rondo's career in Boston

Rondo's one of the best point guards in the NBA. That's a statement that's said about Rondo often. It's a true statement, but when most talk about Rondo. It's usually about trading him, or a rumor about him, and how big of a head case he is. His great gift is often buried in the back yard because of the rumors surrounding him. I wish we could talk more about Rondo the player, and the leader that he's become. Along with the growth that he's shown in the past years. Instead of the good stuff, were given the daily regiment of rumors. Spokeswoman for Rajon Rondos agent, Bill Duffy, said both men...

Five Out: More on the Rajon Rondo trade rumors, celebrating Dirk's hair

Talking about why Rajon Rondo won't be a Maverick. 1. RONDO: This weekend, a rumor circulated that Rajon Rondo had requested a trade from Boston. Rondo says no such thing has happened, but he may just be covering his ass -- it's impossible to really know at this point. 2. CAN THE MAVS TRADE FOR HIM?: No, I don't see any chance of that. Brandan Wright is a massively productive player, but he's not a centerpiece for a star in his prime, even an injury-prone one like Rondo. Talent wise, you could say Monta Ellis is comparable -- but even if Dallas would do that deal, why would the Celtics...

Rajon Rondo, agent deny trade request

Rajon Rondo and his agent, Bill Duffy, are both denying that the Celtics guard has asked for a trade despite multiple reports, including an initial report on ESPN.A spokeswoman for Duffy’s agency said yesterday that both men have discussed the reports, and publically deny that any such request was made.“Neither Bill nor Rajon know where this has come from, but it didn’t come from them,” Alyson Furch said in a text. “They want this on the record. Neither has spoken to anyone about this.”

Rajon Rondo didn't demand a trade, according to the Boston Herald

According to the Boston Herald's Mark Murphy, a spokeswoman for Rajon Rondo's agent, Bill Duffy, says that the Boston Celtics' captain didn't demand a trade. Spokeswoman for Rajon Rondo's agent, Bill Duffy, said both men deny that Celtics guard has demanded a trade. — Mark Murphy (@Murf56) September 1, 2014 This, like Jackie MacMullan's report that Rondo "wants out," is a non-story as far as I'm concerned. I don't think Rondo would demand a trade, but I do think there is probably an understanding between the front office and him that if things don't turn around this season, then...

According to Jackie MacMullan "Rondo wants out"

According to Jackie MacMullan, Rajon Rondo has told the Celtics he wants out http://t.co/If0NQTP31b— Jay King (@ByJayKing) August 31, 2014That's a source that your going doing to listen to. Rondo wants out? Probably after being tosses around in trade talk since 2009. Loyalty doesn't exist for General Managers, and for some owners these days. So why should players be loyal? This is the first report that I recall that proclaims that Rondo wants traded, or to leave Boston. Maybe this is the start of the end.

Rajon Rondo wants to be traded, but not to the Kings

Rondo wants to be traded, but has made it known he will not re-sign with the Kings if traded to Sacramento. Rajon Rondo has reportedly told the Boston Celtics that he will not re-sign with them next offseason, and would like to be traded. While this initially seems like good news for the Kings, who have been reportedly interested in the Celtics point guard, Rondo also indicated he would not re-sign with Sacramento if traded there. This leaves the Kings in a difficult predicament.  The Kings could still trade for Rondo, and hope to sell him on Sacramento's future. The Kings used this same...

Irish Coffee: Celtics rookie Marcus Smart isn’t ready to start and other things we learned from Rajon Rondo’s China tour

Rajon Rondo is in the midst of his annual trip to China, which means more exchanges between the Celtics point guard and a media contingent that probably understands his dry humor better than Boston’s. Take this, for example. Hoop China: “Who’s the next Rajon Rondo?” Rondo: “Nobody.” Hoop China: Straight face. Rondo: “Nobody.” Hoop China: […]

CelticsBlog High Five with Jeff Goodman (on Rajon Rondo, the Celtics' plans, & more)

This should generate some discussion. Jeff Goodman (of ESPN) is not a fan of Rajon Rondo.  I'm a big fan and supporter of Rondo.  Oil and water, right? The thing is, I can respect the fact that he has an opinion and he backs it up, even if it is an unpopular (with some) viewpoint.  So we trade barbs on twitter about Rondo from time to time and it is all in good fun.  But a lot of Celtics fans take issue with Goodman and I thought it would be interesting to get his full side of the story and see why he has the opinion that he has of Rondo. So without further ado, here are my questions...
