Rajon Rondo getting pricked

Rajon Rondo tweeted this photograph during his acupuncture session earlier today. He said the procedure helps release spasm and reduce pain.

Meanwhile, ESPN’s Marc Stein unveiled his first power rankings of the season. The Celtics debut at #27 and you’ll never guess who Stein says will be traded:

They have to trade Rajon Rondo. You know it, I know it, everyone in basketball knows it. In the interim, though, hats off to Danny Ainge. By hiring Brad Stevens, he’s found a way to keep the Celts riveting for the Boston die-hards while he’s in the midst of all these tricky rebuilding transactions.

Someone please fill me in. I don’t understand why the Celtics MUST trade Rajon Rondo. He’s 27 and he’s a top 5 point guard.

Is it part of the tanking process? Or is Rondo such an unbearable asshole that he must be shipped out of town?

A beer to the first person who offers up a logical explanation.

    Chuck, you’re asking for a logical explanation to an emotional conclusion. People are fools. You’re logic is no good here.

      neither is your incorrect use of “you’re”

        Damnit…and I proofread reports for a living…

    Rondo shouldn’t be traded & I’m tired of reading & hearing it.

    Marc Stein is a dummy. We are a Free agent away from competing. IF guys perform to their abilities and stay healthy and stop beating their woman

    • Jake Gruber

      Lol competing for what? A playoff spot? Or you mean a free agent like Lebron James away from competing for a title, because that’d be true. I like your enthusiasm, but it’s pretty unrealistic to say the Celtics are just a good free agent away from competing for a title! Come on, man!

    Objectivity in reporting is a myth and in sports writing it’s a ridiculously unbelievable one.

    Supposedly objective sports writers are usually fans of a team or a couple teams
    in particular. If your team is their team’s rival, they either want your best player for their garbage or they want you to trade him across the continent for somebody else’s garbage. And when your team is projected to have a losing season or is in the middle of one, they just won’t shut up about it. They always push the solution of you giving away your best player to them or somewhere he’s not going to bother them.

    The thing to keep in mind is that they want your team to fail and they think they are being sneaky about it.

    So let’s see if he has a bio out there somewhere on the internets…yep.
    ok from his wikipedia article:

    Before joining ESPN, Stein covered the league for more than five years at The Dallas Morning News, first as a Dallas Mavericks beat writer for three seasons (1997–2000) and then two seasons as an NBA columnist. He had previously covered the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers for the Los Angeles Daily News and has also worked for The Washington Post, The Orange County Register and San Bernardino Sun.

    Stein is a 1991 graduate of California State University, Fullerton and a supporter of Premier League team Manchester City. He lives in the Dallas area with his wife and two sons.

    As you can see from that, it looks like he’s mostly a Dallas and California guy, and among other things, he’s a former Lakers beat reporter for the Los Angeles Daily News; so I’m sure he has nothing but the best interests of the Boston Celtics at heart, eh?
