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: 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 [...]

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 [...]

Recap: C’s collapse in 2nd half, get crushed by Jackson/Morrow combo

For a while, it looked like the Celtics were going to get above .500 for the first time in Brad Stevens’ young coaching career.  They flew out of the gates, and, after some struggles from the bench, asserted themselves adequately to go into halftime with a positive vibe.  The second half could not have been [...]
