Team USA recently held a Blue vs. White scrimmage at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.  While it was interesting to watch them play at such a venue on stage, it was more or less a glorified all-star/street ball game.  There were barely any set plays run as it was quite the ugly [...]

Boston & That Sports Babe returns with SI’s Chris Mannix

Rondo talks some C’s in Vegas

Rondo talks some C’s in Vegas

Rajon Rondo spent a few minutes during day 2 of Team USA's Vegas mini-camp talking Celtics…. and there was no real departure from his confident stance. The thing that really struck me about the entire interview was how he dribbled that basketball behind his back for the entire thing in a perfect rhythm.  It's…. captivating. [...]
