Could Rajon Rondo be the next Dennis Johnson?

Could Rajon Rondo be the next Dennis Johnson?

Ultimate 1-on-1 matchup #4:  Bill Russell vs. Frank Ramsey

Another blowout in the Red's Army Ultimate 1-on-1.  Dennis Johnson waxed Ed Macauley with 84% of the vote.  We were afraid of the older guys in C's history would get demolished by the more recent guys because, quite frankly, the game was a bit different back then.  So be it.  DJ advances and he'll face [...]

Sorry, ’96 Bulls… The ’86 Celtics were better

The Sporting News just came out with its 10 greatest NBA teams of all time.  And, of course, it lists the 1996 Chicago Bulls team at #1. I could go into how the league was terribly watered down at that point, having expanded three times in seven years… adding six teams over that span… including [...]
