Isaiah Thomas Stares Down Suns Bench, Says It Was All In Good Fun

The Celtics played in Phoenix tonight, giving Isaiah Thomas an opportunity to go at the team that traded him less than a week ago. He dropped 21 points and seven assists (albeit on 6-16 shooting with five turnovers) on his old teammates, but really took over the game in the final two minutes.

Dominique Wilkins Tells A Solid Larry Bird Trash-Talk Story

It's not news that Larry Bird was an arrogant jerk in his NBA days. He got away with most of his shit-talk because when he said he was about to shoot a three in your eye, he actually did that. He and Dominique Wilkins famously went at each other in Game 7 of the 1988 Eastern Conference Semifinals, but the Hawks… » 2/09/15 4:48pm 2/09/15 4:48pm

Celtics Beat Trail Blazers On Sloppiest Game-Winner Of The Year

Down two to the Trail Blazers with under 10 seconds remaining, the Celtics were relying upon Jared Sullinger to get them a crucial basket. That should tell you all you need to know about how good they are, that Brad Stevens looked up and down his bench for his best option and settled upon Sullinger.

This Looks Like The Year The Celtics Finally Trade Rajon Rondo

Swapping Rajon Rondo trade rumors is America's oldest and most treasured holiday tradition. But this year, the Celtics' last chance to get something for their star point guard, it seems like it's actually going to happen.

Rajon Rondo's Free Throw Shooting Is Historically Awful So Far

Rajon Rondo has never been a great free-throw shooter. Coming into the 2014-15 season his career average was 62.1 percent—substandard for a point guard—but so far this season, Rondo has been a calamity. He's shot a horrendous 9-30 (30.0 percent) clip from the "charity stripe" in his 15 games played. This is… » 12/05/14 5:21pm 12/05/14 5:21pm

Laptop Man Unfazed By Kobe-Rondo Meeting

Kobe Bryant and Rajon Rondo got breakfast together in Boston this morning, which is fine and good and probably means that Kobe is trying to convince Rondo to come play with him in L.A. so that the two can form some kind of super team of surly-assness and eventually kill each other. But that's not what concerns me… » 12/04/14 3:09pm 12/04/14 3:09pm

Rajon Rondo Says He's A Nap-Time Decision For Home Opener

Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo's status for Wednesday's season opener is still in question due to a broken hand he suffered after slipping in the shower. Rondo's hand is mostly healed, but there's still a chance he won't be able to go at tip-off. Naturally, people have a lot of questions about his injury, but don't… » 10/28/14 3:36pm 10/28/14 3:36pm

So Did Rajon Rondo Break His Hand At A Trampoline Park Or Not?

Boston Celtics Sign Evan Turner, Because Not Enough People Hated Them

After a season in which their bottomed-out squad of plucky nobodies occasionally showed admirable spunk under first-year coach Brad Stevens, the Boston Celtics evidently decided they'd had enough of this not-being-hated-by-literally-everyone crap, and went out and signed ball-pounding avatar of hopelessness Evan… » 7/21/14 6:35pm 7/21/14 6:35pm

Damnit, Rondo

Is there a word for when a player tries to take a charge, only the ballhandler never actually makes contact, yet the defender hits the floor anyway? It's Rondoing, now. » 4/10/14 10:35am 4/10/14 10:35am
