Is Rondo the “best” worst free throw shooting guard ever?

Is Rondo the “best” worst free throw shooting guard ever?

Rajon Rondo’s wretched free throw shooting against Phoenix (2-10) set off a firestorm of comments about his poor shooting from 15-feet. He’s a career 61% FT shooter and there’s been no improvement throughout his career. When we think of bad free throw shooters, we think of Ben Wallace, Shaquille O’Neal, Dwight Howard, Chris Dudley and [...]

Recap: Bass, Sullinger tag-team knocks out 76ers

After a lack-luster first half, the Celtics were in danger of becoming the first victim of the 0-10 76ers. But Brad Stevens said something to the boys in the locker room and the C’s responded. Boston protected the ball, eliminated Philly’s second chance opportunities and, most importantly, kept running in the 2nd half. The 101-90 [...]

Your Morning Dump… Where Rondo went straight to shoot FT’s after Monday’s game

Your Morning Dump… Where Rondo went straight to shoot FT’s after Monday’s game

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “It’s tough,” Rondo said. “It’s frustrating. I work hard on it and I’ll continue to work and get better.” Head coach Brad Stevens said Rondo did not [...]

Video highlights: Zeller fills stat sheet, Jeff Green skywalks

Last night’s disappointing loss to the Suns was not without some great highlights and solid performances. Here’s a link to the condensed version for those of you who missed it. Tyler Zeller coming off the bench and going 8 of 9 from the field with 19 points was an unexpected boost. Zeller also had 7 [...]

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. “I don’t think we’re down confidence-wise,” Rondo said. “We’re a prideful group. We believe in each other. We have a lot of games we could have won. [...]

Recap: Celtics drop barnburner to Suns with another late game collapse

Recap: Celtics drop barnburner to Suns with another late game collapse

Different Opponent. Same Result. Stop me if you’ve heard this one in the last four weeks. The Celtics played a wildly entertaining, back-and-forth game against a very good basketball team. They looked poised to come away with a big, early season victory… but they didn’t. The Cs twice rallied from double digit deficits and held a [...]

The Celtics Need More Out of Jeff Green

If there was a list of the top 5 most confounding players in the NBA, Jeff Green would surely be on it. He often shows flashes of greatness that leave fans wanting more, like his 43 point performance against LeBron and the Heat a couple of years back. In that game, Green showed the skill [...]

Anonymous exec: Rondo is close to max guy, Smart is a two-guard

Anonymous exec: Rondo is close to max guy, Smart is a two-guard

SI’s Chris Mannix spoke with one Eastern Conference league executive about Rajon Rondo and Marcus Smart:​ I don’t think Rondo is a max guy, but he is close to it. I’m not huge on point guards getting max deals. Derrick Rose is a max player. Max guys have to be able to carry a team. If [...]
