Rajon Rondo

Report: Knicks covet Rajon Rondo, made laughable offer to Boston

28 Comments

It is possible Danny Ainge will trade Rajon Rondo — he seriously talked offers for him when they had Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, you think he won’t consider it now that they are rebuilding?

But he’s not giving Rondo away for the spare change in the couch.

Which brings us to this note about the Knicks coveting Rondo, via Frank Isola at the New York Daily News.

Of course, the Knicks primary target is Rondo, Boston’s All Star point guard who is currently recovering from knee surgery. The Knicks have been trying to trade Shumpert, Raymond Felton and Amar’e Stoudemire in a complicated deal for Rondo but the rebuilding Celtics has yet to show much interest.

Unless the Celtics are blown away with an offer it’s hard to imagine Celtics GM Danny Ainge trading his best player, Rondo, to the rival Knicks.

Per team policy, Danny Ainge will not comment on trade rumors, so me just say on behalf of him:

HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!HA!

Honestly, is there any player on the Knicks you would trade Rondo for to rebuild around? No.

And if you’re thinking “the Knicks should throw in a pick” remember they don’t have a first rounder they can move until 2018.

My guess is we’re going to see what Rondo can do with these Celtics and if he can take the torch, but with Ainge you know the trade rumors will never quite go away.

But he’s not giving Rondo away for scraps. Sorry Knicks.

It’s hard to find a new low for defense in an NBA All-Star Game.

But Stephen Curry was laying down on defense. Literally.

The result was a Giannis Antetokounmpo dunk and Curry ending up in the highlight anyway.

Hey, DeAndre Jordan, where was this Saturday night during the Dunk Contest?

The Clippers’ big man threw down an off-the-backboard alley-oop from Russell Westbrook during the All-Star Game Sunday that was better than anything he did on Saturday night. Enjoy
