Rajon Rondo Trade Rumors: 5 Teams He Could End Up With

On Friday, Jackie MacMullan said that four-time All-Star Rajon Rondo has told the Celtics that he “wants out” of Boston.

Louis Corbett and the Tupac Doppelganger: The Highlight of the 2013-14 Celtics Season

Other than the merciful end of the season, there isn’t much to look forward to as a Boston Celtics fan. The Celtics are 20-41, good (bad?) for the fourth worst record in the league. Even if you fully support tanking for the 2014 NBA draft, it’s hard to revel in each additional loss that brings […]
