NBA Rumors – Dallas Mavericks Trading For Rajon Rondo Doesn’t Make Them the Best

Posted on 19 Dec, 2014, by in Basketball

The Dallas Mavericks aren’t the best team in the West just because Rajon Rondo joined them. They don’t even have the best starting five, at least not when considering what goes on both ends of the floor. But their trade with the Boston Celtics for the All-Star point guard means swinging for the fences in an attempt to win an NBA championship, an attempt that might explode in their faces. More

Posted on 18 Dec, 2014, by in Basketball

The Dallas Mavericks aren’t the only team trying to trade for Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics – the Houston Rockets are in on this as well, as to a lesser extent the Los Angeles Lakers, Sacramento Kings and New York Knicks are as well. For now, the Mavs seem to be closer than anyone to completing a deal. More

Rajon Rondo Elbows a Flopping Lance Stephenson in the Face

Posted on 11 Dec, 2014, by in Basketball

Few players like to flop as much as Lance Stephenson, so not much was made of one of the dirtiest and most despicable players in the NBA, Rajon Rondo, elbowed him in the face during the game between the Boston Celtics and Charlotte Hornets. More

Los Angeles Lakers – Jeremy Lin Plays Well but Little; Kobe Bryant Has a Regular Day

Posted on 6 Dec, 2014, by in Basketball

With rumors of trading or benching, Jeremy Lin actually played well in the short time he was on the floor as the Los Angeles Lakers lost 113-96 to the Boston Celtics, while Kobe Bryant had another one of those days with plenty of points and shots, not actually influencing the game. More

Chicago Bulls – Derrick Rose & Jimmy Butler Are the Best Backcourt in the NBA

Posted on 29 Nov, 2014, by in Basketball

The Chicago Bulls got Derrick Rose up and healthy once again, and the combination of him and Jimmy Butler was enough to overcome a resilient Boston Celtics team 109-102, with Rajon Rondo once again struggling to show why he should be considered one of the best point guards in the NBA in a direct showdown with one that has proven he belongs in that group.

Cleveland Cavaliers – LeBron James Loves Beating Rajon Rondo & the Boston Celtics

Posted on 15 Nov, 2014, by in Basketball

The plan for the Cleveland Cavaliers is to not rely so heavily on LeBron James, but sometimes there’s no choice, as a huge game from their biggest star helped them come back in a tremendous fourth quarter to beat the Boston Celtics 122-121, with Rajon Rondo embarrassing himself, messing up a chance to win the game.

NBA – Celtics vs Mavericks Predictions

Posted on 3 Nov, 2014, by in Basketball

The Dallas Mavericks keep doing badly in third quarters. It hasn’t stopped them from going 2-1, but it possibly cost them a perfect record to start the season with, losing by an average 11 points coming out of the locker room at half time. They gave up 37 points against the Pelicans but eventually pulled through for the 109-104 win with a big fourth quarter. More

New York Knicks – Carmelo Anthony Not Off to a Great Preseason

Posted on 9 Oct, 2014, by in Basketball

Following Carmelo Anthony through the summer gives us a glimpse of someone trying to be optimistic although there aren’t a lot of reasons to be. The New York Knick looked bad adjusting to the triangle offense in a 106-86 loss to the Boston Celtics, as Jared Sullinger had an excellent game while Marcus Smart looked much improved compared to his preseason debut, almost like someone who can take over eventually for Rajon Rondo.

NBA Preseason – Boston Celtics Have Hope, Philadelphia 76ers Still Terrible

Posted on 7 Oct, 2014, by in Basketball

The Boston Celtics won’t make the playoffs this season. Neither will the Philadelphia 76ers, but even without Rajon Rondo (who might get traded at some point), there’s some ready talent on this team and not just extremely young players backed with too many draft picks. For Sixers fans, it’s just going to be another season of hovering around or having the worst record in the NBA. More
