DALLAS' D-League affiliate is the Texas Legends....Faverani was also jettisoned... all acquired players are in the building tonight but Minnesota dealt Corey Brewer to HOU

Celtics now 1-0 in the Post-Rondo Era, beating Minnesota 114-98 tonight to move into a tie for the 8th-seed in the Eastern Conference.

I didn't remind the return. It sets us up even more for making a big splash when the time is right ( free agent superstar, moving up in the draft, etc etc ). I think Ainge played this right.

Learn what? That you have to be really bad and stockpile Top 5 draft picks?

Tell that to the Golden State Warriors.

I'd love to have a player like Curry. Currently my favorite player in the NBA

Steph Curry's brother Seth's on the ORL D-League affiliate Erie Bayhawks....

Maine rallies and stuns said Bayhawks 97-84, Claws are 6-0 so far in the Expo and are 10-2; hosting the expansion Westchester Knicks tonight.

So would I. Love him. He's a tremendous player.

He was also picked 7th overall.

They'll have lottery picks over the next three years. They have to use them effectively. Golden State is where they are because they used their late lottery picks (Curry, Thompson, Barnes, etc) very effectively.

Missed this the other day. Your point is fair enough. But there's also a school of thought that basically says Rondo is the proverbial very nice square peg that the Celtics have been trying to fit into Brad Stevens' round hole.

Rondo's DNA is that of a ball-dominant, drive and dish point guard. And he's very good at it. But that sort of player almost undermines Stevens' offensive system, which is predicated on ball movement. To their credit, I think both Rondo and Stevens tried very hard to make things work. In the end, I think a big part of the reason they drafted Marcus Smart is because he doesn't need the ball as much to be effective.

Both the Celtics and Rondo played nice with each other for a long period of time. That said, it's been a bad fit ever since the Garnett/Pierce trade. And if he hadn't had knee problems the past few seasons, he'd have been traded a long time ago.

Just my opinion.

Was watching the Celts last night and didn't see Rondo. Is he hurt or something? You know, since he isn't going anywhere...
