“Beastondo” Ready to Lead

You ready for the regular season? I'm ready for the regular season. I think most of the Celtics are ready too. Except for Rajon Rondo. “No, we ain’t ready,” Rondo said. “We’ve got a long ways to go.” “We’ve got to execute better, close out quarters and keep our turnovers down,” Rondo said, drawing support...

Ray’s a pretty good golfer

If you follow Ray Allen on Twitter, you know he's a pretty avid golfer.  In fact, that picture of him and Kevin Na is from his twitpic account.  But Charles Barkley is an avid golfer… and we know what that looks like.  So just playing a lot doesn't make you good.  So how good is... [More]

Rajon Rondo’s awesomeness extends beyond the court

Rajon Rondo’s awesomeness extends beyond the court

That's Rajon Rondo making a trip to Germany to visit wounded soldiers (h/t CelticsBlog).  He's awesome.  As usual, I'll point your attention to the mitts…which, when he shakes someone's hand, wrap around the recipient's hand about 4 or 5 times like an octopus tentacle.  Other things that will distract you from your workday. I explain... [More]
