Brooklyn Nets Kris Humphries was ejected for his part in the brawl against Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo, and shortly afterward tweeted the photo at right. Who gave him the scratches? He added,
“Anyone know where I can get a quick Tetanus shot in Boston?
Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo went right at Brooklyn Nets forward Kris Humphries after a foul on Kevin Garnett with 29 seconds left in the first half of Wednesday night’s game. Rondo, Humphries and interloping Nets forward Gerald Wallace were ejected.
A picture Rajon Rondo tweeted of himself teaching algebra at Burke High School in Dorchester, Mass., this morning was more than a photo op. The Boston Celtics point guard has skills, says the class instructor.
“I’d give him an A,” math teacher Kehinde Oshodi said. “He was putting me on the spot asking for more problems to solve.”
Rondo spent about 20 minutes at the white board, and urged students to consider the entire structure of an equation rather than just diving in to solve it, Oshodi said.
The Boston Celtics tam and fans are no real fans of LeBron James and the Miami Heat. Rajon Rondo enjoying a night out like usual had a fan come up to him last night asking to pose for a photo, no big deal happens all the time. Except this female fan had a custom Celtic shirt that read disparaging remarks about LeBron. Rondo still decided to grant her wish and posed for the picture.
Late Friday night it was announced that Ray Allen had decided to not re-sign with the Boston Celtics and sign with the Miami Heat. Most people understand Allen’s thought process on the decision. He obviously believes that he has the best chance to win another championship with the Heat. Add in the fact that his relationship with Rajon Rondo is apparently not the best and it’s easy to see why Allen chose the Heat.
But all of that is enough for the New Orleans Hornets Jarret Jack thinks that Allen is traitor for spurning the Celtics for the Heat and he took to his Twitter page to ask his followers their opinion on the matter.
“Am I wrong for thinking ray allen is a traitor for signing with his rival team the heat? Tell me what u think!!!!!!”
The Miami Heat advanced to NBA Finals after earning a game 7 win against the Boston Celtics on Saturday. However Celtics Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett where not anywhere near the court to wish them luck against the Western Conference representative Oklahoma City Thunder as they were almost to the locker room with 14 seconds still left in the game.
Rondo even tries to toss his towel onto the ESPN camera but the cameraman bobs and weaves.
The Boston Celtics lost game 5 87-86 in Atlanta to the Hawks allowing the series to continue. Celtics guard Rajon Rando was all that thrilled to have the TNT cameraman filming as he waited to take the post game podium.
Lucky for Rondo his handler kept him from doing anything that once again would cost his teammates his services, something he said he was deeply sorry for after getting a one game suspension for bumping an NBA official.
The Boston Celtics had to take on the Atlanta Hawks in the ATL without Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo, so Paul Pierce dropped 36 points, 14 rebounds and 4 assists in 44 minutes to tie up the series.
‘The Truth’ decided to celebrate by Tebowing on the Hawks center court logo with 1:15 still left in the game.
The Boston Celtics lost to the Atlanta Hawks 83-74 in Game 1 on Sunday and their chances of flipping the script in Game 2 took a major hit when All-Star star point guard Rajon Rondo was ejected for bumping an official late in the fourth quarter.
The NBA Rulebook states that “any player or coach guilty of intentional physical contact with an official shall automatically be suspended without pay for one game.”
Boston Celtics were in Los Angeles to face the Lakers and that means its time to get your Hollywood on and that’s exactly what guard Rajon Rondo did when he took layup drills sporting a pair of Jack Nicholson eye wears.
The NBA fined the Los Angeles Lakers guard $40,000 for missing a news conference and a mandated charity appearance for NBA Cares during All-Star weekend in Orlando, according to a league official who requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about it.
In addition, the person said, the NBA fined Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce and guard Rajon Rondo $20,000 each for missing their charity appearances
Boston Celtics were trailing the Detroit Pistons by a score of 66-54 when Rajon Rondo got angry and started jawing at referee Sean Wright and in frustration tossed the ball at Wright which took him by surprise and it nailed him in his chest. The Pistons won the game by a score of 90-78.
Fast forward to the 2:05 mark
Not much went Orlando Magics way in Monday night’s 87-56 loss to Boston Celtics at the TD Garden. The Magic set franchise lows for points and field goals despite the Celtics playing without Rajon Rondo and Ray Allen.
Down 15 with the Celtics running their half court offense, Magic guard Jason Richardson was sitting on the bench when he realized there were only four Orlando players on the court. After Paul Pierce passed the ball to center Greg Stiemsma in the corner near Orlando’s bench, Richardson walked on to the court not checking into the game via the scorer’s table during a stoppage and knocked the ball out of his hands. The ball trickled out of bounds and possession went back to Boston. Despite the fact that a player had come right from the bench onto the floor, the referees didn’t do anything about the incident.
NBA players have withdrawn one of the two antitrust lawsuits they filed last week against the league, with the NBA office charging that the group, led by lawyer David Boies, was, “forum shopping,” or looking for a jurisdiction that had a history of ruling favorably on labor issues.
The suit included Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Durant as plaintiffs, and will be consolidated with the other suit, filed in Minnesota, Boies said. Additional plaintiffs Steve Nash, Baron Davis, Rajon Rondo, Sebastian Telfair and Anthony Randolph have been added to the suit. The judge in the case ruled that the case would not be heard until next March, which would be well after the entire NBA season could be canceled. “This should permit us to expedite the case,” Boies told reporters.
The league saw it differently. “We assume that Mr. Boies was not happy with either the reassignment of the case from Oakland to San Francisco or the fact that the new judge scheduled the first conference for March 2012,” said Rick Buchanan, NBA general counsel, in a statement released by the league. “This is consistent with Mr. Boies’ inappropriate shopping for a forum that he can only hope will be friendlier to his baseless legal claims.”
The goal of the lawsuits is to force the NBA owners to end the lockout, which has been ongoing since July 1 or at least to get a judge to order the two sides back to the negotiating table. The sides last discussed a new collective bargaining agreement nearly two weeks ago and at present, there are no further plans to meet.
ESPN is reporting that the NBA World All-Star Classic, staring eighteen top-tier players, including Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard, Dwyane Wade and Kevin Durant, will begin a world tour Sunday in San Juan, Puerto Rico. News of the tour broke last week, but contractual and logistical issues had to be worked out, and a formal announcement is expected imminently.
The tour, branded the World All-Star Classic, will also hit O2 Arena in London on Nov. 1 and 3, the Cotai Arena at the Venetian Hotel in Macau on Nov. 6, and Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia, Nov. 8 and 9. Organizers are considering adding a fifth city and are doing some last-minute tinkering with the other stops and dates.
The official announcement is expected today and other stars could include, LeBron James, Chris Bosh, Amar’e Stoudemire, Blake Griffin, Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Carlos Boozer, Tyson Chandler, Steve Nash, Kevin Love, Rajon Rondo and Chris Kaman.
Players will be paid from six figures to $1 million, and some proceeds will go to charity, according to reports. Atlanta businessman Calvin Darden is the tour’s main organizer.
Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo talked to GQ recently to explain what he was thinking during his incredible blind alley-oop pass to Denver Nuggets draft pick Kenneth Faried during an exhibition game.
GQ: Tell me about how the play developed. Have you been surprised by how much attention it’s gotten?
“I was just playing. I didn’t even know (Faried) could jump like that. But the first couple games he was doing a couple of windmills….He told me throw it up, throw that lob. I was trying something that time. I had a feel for it. He put it up and I threw it.”

Miami Heat LeBron James has passed Los Angeles Lakers Kobe Bryant to take over the No. 1 spot on the NBA’s best-selling jersey list this season. It’s the first time in seven years James has grabbed the top spot as Bryant’s No. 24 jersey has held the spot since the 2008-2009 season.
In another surprise Boston Celtics Rajon Rondo cracked the Top 3 and four other Celtics, Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Shaquille O’Neal, where in the Top 15 making it the first time five players from the same club have made the list. Rookies John Wall of the Washington Wizards and Blake Griffin of the Los Angeles Clippers, meanwhile, rank Nos. 10 and 11 respectively.
The Lakers lead in team merchandise sales for the 8th time in 9 seasons. The Celtics are No. 2 for the third straight season. The Heat, New York Knicks and Chicago Bulls round out the Top 5 in team sales.
Just a side note, not a single San Antonio Spur made the Top 15.
The Boston Celtics sat four starters (Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Rajon Rondo) last night in an overtime loss against the Washington Wizards so that meant guys like Von Wafer got a lot of minutes. What does Wafer do with his time? He misses a dunk and causes a turnover in roughly 0.04 seconds.
Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo is a bad man and it’s not just fans that give him credit but his peers, he gets to the hoop at ease that it’s almost like playing a video game.
