Will Rajon Rondo watch the playoffs "No"

The Celtics are out of the playoff picture for the second time in Rondo's career. The first time he missed the playoffs with the Celtics was in his rookie season. The year before the "Big 3" joined forces. I think Rondo should watch the playoffs. This is his job. I know his season is over, but why wouldn't you want to watch others in the playoffs. I would think...

Celtics lose, Jazz win, Nets lose; a final look at Celtics lottery odds and draft picks

What a night.Sure, the Celtics lost for the 57th time this season, and the playoffs will be played without them for the first time since 2007.

Ainge says Rondo will have his best season ever next year, but won't say he's untouchable in trades

Ainge is expecting Rondo to have a career year next season, and is it because Rondo will be playing for a contract? It's likely he feels that way because Rondo will be looking at a new deal at the conclusion of the 2014-15 season. I think Rondo will regain his crown as top assist man, but can Rondo lead the Boston Celtics back to the playoffs? It depends upon Ainge's summer...

John Johnson Almost Played for the Celtics?

If I were to tell you the Celtics acquired an All Star in 1977 and he remained on the team for 3 months in the offseason before having to be returned to his old team, would you believe me?  A guy who has his own t-shirt?  A guy who was a starter on an NBA title team and who maybe, just maybe, could've helped push Boston over the top in 1980?  Well it's very true.On June...
