Are the Celtics Really Shopping Rondo?

Via HoopsWorld: Off the record, we have several sources telling us that Ray Allen is, indeed, on the block.

KG Guarantees Titles in 2010, 2011

Via the Globe: "I talked to [Garnett] and he guaranteed the championship in 2010 and in 2011," Grousbeck said. "He was as fired up as he's ever been." Not shocked that KG would spout off like that.

Blame the Trade Machine

Our first trade rumor of the season was a pretty goofy one, but it sure sparked a reaction.  One reaction is from Bethlehem Shoals on the Sporting News… who says we should blame the Trade Machine for all these silly rumors. The real story is that apparently, we've all become such Trade Machine junkies, and... [More]
