    Keep posting and contradicting yourself, entertaining...



    A lot more entertaining than you and Dudder (AKA Puddin pants) having your period cramps all over this board.  Dudder is really a Knick's fan, what's your excuse?

    Brilliant how you omit my "this is just a guess" remark regarding Kevin Love to vomit up some more crybaby "I hate Rondo" nonsense and appear pithy.

    I don't need a crystal ball to know that All Stars want to play with other All Stars to win championships,  no more than I need to look up to know that the sky is still blue.

    NBA champion (2008)

    4× NBA All-Star (2010–2013)

    All-NBA Third Team (2012)

    2× NBA All-Defensive First Team (2010–2011)

    2× NBA All-Defensive Second Team (2009, 2012)

    NBA All-Rookie Second Team (2007)

    NBA steals leader (2010)

    2× NBA assists leader (2012-2013)

    Yeah you guys are right, this isn't just more typical New England "nobody likes me, everybody hates me, why don't I just eat worms" emo self hating BS...

    The entire NBA, all the analysts, former players and experts are wrong and you are right... entertaining?  It's a running joke.  You guys should go off in a corner and have a good cry together.

    One other thing. If he's not dealt by the trade deadline he walks and never re-signs here.

     

    after being bombarded for months on end, the board is aware of your flimsy prognostication skills, melly. above statement comes across as desperate folly. your bwahaha routine is as pertinent as you get.

     

    bp



    Yet another useless drive by by the snipe-er bp...

    Just for you bp...

    Rondon't?

    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    Next time try something about basketball like this:

    "Rondo can't shoot, can't play D, can't close a game out, and can't drive to the hoop anymore, plus, he's the league's biggest headcase."

    Try that...you can't...you don't know basketball....have a nice life!

    In response to DrBoogiebone's comment:

    Love him or hate him, Rondo is our only draw for this franchise. The ONLY one we have. The only others I can think of would be the Boston Celtics franchise itself, or our GM who's among the top ranked. And I don't think they are a big enough draw for players to want to come play here. If we get rid of him, it's a clear sign that either the C's are afraid he'll walk, or it's time to start over with a completely clean slate. And if that's the case, get ready for many, many, many losing seasons folks. Probably looking at a 5-7 year playoff absence. We're back in "expansion" team territory. Title contention? Forget about it. So once again, love him or hate him, Rondo is a building block, and the ONLY one we have right now.



    +1...Which is why he'll be dealt, because he will walk away after DA refuses to give him the max contract the wee malcontent feels he's owed. If DA gives him such a deal, it will rank as DA's single biggest mistake in his entire basketball career because Rondo actually is worse now than when they last won the championship. His game has not improved, it's gotten worse. Dump this bum NOW!

    You can't trade a salaried player just for a pick. The Celts would have to take something back. But no - no team would trade a top four pick for Rondo. It's one of those trades that's dumb for everyone.

    If course you can trade a player for a pick, if the other team has the cap space to accept it.  As an example, the C's can ship out a pick for a very large contract, as they have a TPE to absorb the contract.  Do they want to is a very different question...

    And Rondo could surely use a fresh start somewhere else.

    How many teams with lottery picks need a point guard. Very few. Throw in the fact that Rondo has said he will test free agency and Danny has his work cut out for him.

    A 3rd team needs to be involved with a player the current lotto pick holder wants in return for Rondo.

    The problem is.... who if anyone wants a high-maintenance Rondo expecting a max  contract?

    That's the bind.

    Just try telling that to the cadre of Rondo lovers on these threads. Rondo is a done (meaning finished) deal. His game has fallen by the wayside. He never could shoot, not hit free throws when it counts, no longer wants to get in front of guys and play D, no longer drives to the hoop in traffic, can't lead the team to close out games and is only interested in dimes when it adds to his "legend". He's playing himself out of the NBA. Nobody wants him. NOBODY. A trade? We'll be happy to take pennies on the dollar come trade deadline time and the rest of the NBA GM's know this. Big time FA's wanting to come here to play with him? They didn't want him on the US Olympic team! Forget this loser. Get anybody, just dump him.

    Except the Lakers, Knicks, Kings, Detroit, Houston, Larry Bird, and probably more. I bet the Magic and Bucks would love to have him as well.


    I'll take him. Any day of the week and twice on Sunday. Faults and all. He wouldn't be my #1 or #2 option, but he would run the offense. The kids heart goes a long way in my book. Played with a dislocated/hyper-extended elbow, suffered a season ending ACL injury and still tried to come back and play in the next game against Miami. I could go on.

    What I would LOVE to know is, where are you guys getting the knowledge of what Rajon "wants", and "feels he's owed"? A link will do just fine. If I was to give MY ASSUMPTION........... I would say he's talking about going into free agency to get as much as he can. Because he too may realize that he's not worth the max. Therefore, he's going to try to get all he can on the open market. That and/or he's probably sick of all the trade rumors. Just an assumption, nothing more.

    Me talking generally about players around the league and you talking specifically about Kevin Love as if you know the inside scoop on the situation is not me being contradictory.   I would call that style of misrepresentation almost fierce-like.

    But I do thank you for the arm chair psycology Doctor Phil, maybe you can look into the New England self loathing that goes on here next.  

    Like maybe start over on the Patriot's board and figure out why we supposedly sux every year and Belichick is supposedly no good at his job, then go to the Sox site and explain how 1/10th into the schedule the season is already over, then head to the Bruins board and talk some of the jumpers off the ledge, lastly come back here and make sense of posters knocking the only All Star and marketable asset on our team who happens to be coming off a knee injury.

    Obviously I'm not going to convince you RR is a good player, but you trying to convince us that the rest of the NBA shares you and Dudder's warped view is laughable.  Rajon Rondo is one of the best point guards and maybe the best game manager in the NBA when healthy.  His game is unorthodox, he doesn't necessarily shoot well but he scores points in bushels, hands out more assists than anyone and locks down the most important ball handler on the opposing team.  I'm sorry you can't appreciate his style of play but you yelling at the top of your lungs that he is no good is akin to you trying to convince us the World is flat.

    Re: Rondo for a lotto pick?

    I can only see three teams that may be interested in Rondo, Detroit (lost their pick, no decent prospects to offer besides Monroe, who's isn't the answer)  Sacremento (8th pick, multiple young prospects but reportedly were already turned down by Rondo saying he wouldn't re-sign there),  and the Lakers. (7th pick, and expiring Nash) 

    I see the Lakers as the most likely, but the Kings have the most desirable assets to offer.  Detroit doesn't look like an option anymore.

    Re: Rondo for a lotto pick?

    I don't remember Monroe being involved in that deal. It was Knight and Charlie V. or Stuckey.

    "The Pistons are quite interested in Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo, but they don’t have a package to offer that would attract president of basketball operations Danny Ainge to making a deal. The Celtics would presumably ask for emerging center Andre Drummond, who is as close to untouchable as a younger player can get. Detroit would like to send the Celtics Brandon Knight and an expiring contract, but that wouldn’t be nearly enough."

    This next quote also proves Monroe wasn't involved.

    "In any case, CBS Sports' Matt Moore agrees that Drummond is untouchable but (ugh) wonders why Greg Monroe hasn't been discussed:

    Monroe is only 23 and is, quite honestly, one of the more underrated players in the game. He'd make for a fine building block for Boston, along with the other assets that they would acquire. The Pistons would get to keep Drummond, get Rondo to pair with Josh Smith and go from there."

    I didn't ask the question: Why should we trade him?
    Mel, those "floated stories" have all been reported on. Whether they're true or not. I'm just wanting to be pointed towards reports of Rondo "wanting" or "feeling he's owed" a max deal, as was stated earlier. It may be true. I myself haven't seen anything. Is it Rondo "wanting" or "feeling he's owed", or just what others are assuming?


    I didn't answer my own question. I stated an "assumption", or a guess if you will. The earlier posts referenced news on the topic as if it is fact. That he's "wanting" or "feels he's owed" max $$$. I've not heard this, outside from this board of course. I believe those too are assumptions or speculations as well. If you've heard a report on Rondo wanting/looking for/demanding a max deal, throw me a bone dude. If you'd like me to pull those reports on rumored Rondo interest, I guess I could, may take some time to find them all. When I have some time. But those were pretty common knowledge to the fans on here.


    Not upset at all Mel. That's ridiculous. Hope you and your family enjoy the holiday.

    The REAL rumor was Detroit offered Knight, Monroe and Charlie V's expiring for Rondo and Bass. The Celtics asked for Drummond and were laughed at and no deal happened.



    We should have grabbed that one when we had the chance!

    Dear fantasy writer,

    Nowhere in my previous posts did I even refer to Kevin Love... please let me know the one you're referring to, liar.

    You're pretty pathetic, unable to accept legit criticism because you're so insecure and worse yet, refuse to acknowledge a documented truth and even go a step further to manufacture lies in a feeble, sad effort to defend yourself.
