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...

As Freddy Krueger said to Jason, “Why won’t you die?”But despite the best efforts of some to puff out illicit smoke and call it fire, what was true in February at the trade deadline was true yesterday.In the wake of more reports that Houston again targeted Rajon Rondo, multiple sources confirmed that there has been no such communication between the Rockets and Celtics.

Rumor mill: Rox eye Rondo; C's eye Turner?

Two bits of Boston Celtics news floating around the rumor mill on Monday morning: Rockets could target Rondo? From ESPN.com's Marc Stein: So look for Rockets to re-enter trade game for longtime Houston target Rajon Rondo as well as try to work their way into mix for Kevin Love— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 14, 2014 • Rapid Reaction: So we've been down this road before. Back in February we heard the Rockets expressed interest in Rondo around the trade deadline (though it appeared the Celtics weren't very interested in listening).

Stein: Rockets interested in Rondo (again)

Celtics points to consider

Still unpacking from nine days in Orlando, where summers are great when it’s not oppressively hot or thunderstorming. Except it’s pretty much always one of the two.The luggage was a little heavier on the way back because of the acquisition of a few thoughts from the Celtics’ summer league efforts. Among them . . .•  We’d pay cash money to see Rajon Rondo and Marcus Smart go at each other in training camp, assuming they both make it to that point as Celtics.

9 Destinations for Number 9, Rajon Rondo

9 Destinations for Number 9, Rajon Rondo

Like it or not, the chances of a Rajon Rondo trade are slim. Seeing Rajon Rondo pass the basketball is like hearing Jimi Hendrix play guitar or tasting the most delicious food you've ever had. Rondo plays a beautiful game that satisfies the senses, which won my heart during his rookie year with the Boston Celtics...so much so that he quickly became my all-time favorite NBA player because of his flash and flair. But the armchair general manager in me can't help but assess the state of the Celtics and believe that trading the 28-year-old superstar point guard is in the best interest of...
