How Tony Parker’s extension affects Rajon Rondo’s contract situation

Tony Parker inked a three-year contract extension with the Spurs for an estimated $43.3 million, according to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski, but does it have any bearing on Rajon Rondo‘s current status with the Celtics? In roughly the same salary situation — Parker will make $12.5 million to Rondo’s $12.9 million this season — the former chose the max […]

"Rajon Rondo can't shoot?" Well, actually he sorta can

Evans Clinchy published a well-written article about the possibility of building around a point guard that can't shoot the basketball, but is that player really Rajon Rondo? Let's investigate. Didn't we already close the book on the narrative that Rajon Rondo can't shoot? Rondo certainly did enter the NBA as an abominable shooter, but he has developed to a stage that defenders have to at least respect his shot. Saying "Rondo can't shoot" is like saying "LeBron will never win a championship." It's an erroneous statement that has been proven wrong time after time. Over the course of the...

Rajon Rondo continues to get ripped in the media, and Derrick Rose has become a god again

Rajon Rondo continues to get ripped in the media, and Derrick Rose has become a god again

Derrick Rose is a former NBA MVP. He's an amazing player and athlete. Is Rose a two-way player? Rose can the score ball better than many in the NBA. When it comes to shooting the three-ball? He's just okay. When it comes to playing man-to-man defense. He's not great, but in Thib's system Rose is better. This article isn't about bashing Rose, but after a day of watching Rondo get slammed, and Rose rise from the grave. It's all confusing to me. Here's the layout of the day.

Right Talk Rondo

Finally someone has written a reasonable and thoughtful article about Rondo...http://www.sportsonearth.com/article/86219920/nba-boston-celtics-rajon-rondo-point-guard-value#!bmbc90It isn't surprising that people like to talk about Rajon Rondo. He's a complicated, unique, sometimes-dominant basketball player who currently doubles as the face and captain of an iconic NBA franchise. He's also a polarizing dude -- in a world where that adjective gets tossed around far too often -- who once induced compelling discussion from those who truly enjoy NBA basketball. Watching him can be an...

Blame It On Rondo

Blame It On Rondo

One of the most ridiculous 'factals' that has been propagated into near truth is the claim that Rajon Rondo was awful in 2013-2014.   I suppose that one of the reasons this notion has taken on such legs is that the Celtics organization - as is their wont - badly misled people about what to expect.  We were led to believe that Rondo was expected back by opening day, and that he very possibly would be better than ever.  We now know that return from ACL rarely plays out that way.If we measure Rondo's return against more realistic expectations, it would make more sense to say it was a great...

Debunking the myth that the Celtics have to trade Rajon Rondo

Enough already. The Celtics might end up eventually trading Rajon Rondo.  But I'm getting a little frustrated reading the narrative that "if the Celtics don't land Love or another big name, they have to trade Rondo."  Why? Oh I get the rationale.  It goes as follows. Rondo won't be happy on a rebuilding team and the Celtics would risk losing him for nothing at the end of the year. Let's break this statement up into sections, shall we? First of all, nobody likes losing, regardless of who they are or where they are in the pecking order.  Rondo is not unique in being frustrated with losing...
