I'll put this here, because it could effect Boston's plans and blowing the team up. No Rondo = No chance.

Solid #NBA source tells me the Boston @Celtics are fearing a possible torn ACL for Rajon #Rondo. Results from MRI coming soon. Updates ASAP.

Tough news for Rondo..... averaging a triple double over his last 4 games....

Boston is in a similar situation. In the future it will be very difficult to have more than one Max Slot and a deep good team. If everyone expires at the same time it will make it even more difficult. They can begin to trade pieces for picks and youth or they can try to swing for fences. With Rondo out (if it's an ACL) swinging for the fences isn't a possibility anymore.

Here he'd be open, and career wise he's a decent shooter despite always having to create for himself. Here he'd be getting those Ron artest shots


what bout Marc/Zbo they create alot of problems in the paint, wouldn't they draw doubles?


Those 2 aren't really creators. Though Marc is much more so than Randolph. They draw the occasional double when they are having one of those games but not the respect Kobe and Howard have

^No, they won't. They were already on a 6 games losing streak headed into the Miami game. If they don't make a move for their most pressing needs which is size & shooting then their not making the PO's, IMO.

Whether or not they have an interest in Pau is another story; the team can't rely on an older KG and an undersized Sullinger for the remaining part of this year. Losing Rondo for any significant amount of time hurts them badly...

Was told yesterday Boston was absolutely open to trading Paul Pierce for the right package in return. Hard to see that not happening now

Great news. Now, can the package include Gasol & Reddick somehow? Fills two needs for that team the shooting & another big they desperately need right now...

Not sure how that's good news for us.. They will have 0 interest in Gasol now that winning this season is out of the question. Pierce will be traded for youth & picks.

They're still 8th in the Eastern conference even after losing 6 in a row; they can still salvage the season if they get pieces that can help right away. By salvaging, I mean making the PO's.

The way Pau has been playing off the bench, I'm not so sure I want to trade him anymore.

But, the prospects of having two scorers in Kobe and Rudy seems too hard to pass up. Durant and LeBron would actually have to play defense.

The Celtics have always done fine without Rondo. They weren't going to get anywhere with Rondo anyway so this should force the FO to make some moves and start rebuilding, which they sorely needed to do.
