He may have what they call 'lax joints'. Both of my shoulders pop out too. Sucks and it's painful. He's gonna need surgery and a few months therapy to get his arms back in shape. BRADinLA

"It's almost like some of the folks won't be happy till we have a crappy shoot-first point guard who has half the game of Rondo." Well said. - BRADinLA

Nothing helps ticket sales like a championship. Look, my Celtics jersey is a Rondo #9 as well. I would HATE to see him go... to Lakeshow no less. And as in my above comments I don't necessarily think Gasol puts us over the top (though it's definitely possible due to his inside scoring and rebounding, winning ways and versatility) but a championship would heal all wounds of losing our little god Rondo.

Having said that... Gasol would help with rebounding and scoring in the paint. Help enough to make a title run? Not so sure, and would he be emotionally stable to handle a trade to the team he's (theoretically) hated for 4 years? Not so sure about that either.

Maybe Danny sees the games where Pierce played point-forward and thinks the team really doesn't Rondo. I could see that but I don't know. I don't really want Gasol either. He's too old and he's not going to alleviate the salary cap issue next year. I do like his game but is he going to play center? LOL, are you kidding me? No way he's durable enough for that.

Yeah, I don't know what you're talking about. I remember every time he came into a game, when he was healthy, he would give the team a big lift. I like Marquis and his diamond encrusted replica of his own head, lol

Yeah, this is a joke. These owners are morons. What the hell was that lockout for?

Great. Just great. Thanks Felger. Pot calling the kettle black I'd say. I've said it before, I'm a HUGE Rondo fan. I have his jersey. However, I would also make the Chris Paul trade in a heartbeat if NO was into it, because of our team's specific needs. But this is wrong. Most likely Rondo's staying in Boston (which is not a bad thing by any means, he's dynamic and a true quarterback of a PG with a gritty heart and soul and a unique skill set) and shit like this is really going to make him begin to feel very unwelcome in Boston. No player wants to feel like the city's against them. Especially, Rondo who was exposed last year as a bit soft at the center.

I'm a HUGE Rondo fan. HUGE. But even I say, for Chris Paul, you make the trade. Chris Paul will undoubtedly bring in Dwight Howard. With the Celtics legacy being more potent than ever and with Doc Rivers, the man who stared Phil Jackson in the eyes and didn't back down, there's NO WAY Dwight doesn't come to Boston. Another reason is the Heat. Dwight's seen what it takes to build a winning team and he'd know that if he was on a team with CP, Paul Pierce and the best player's coach in the game he'd start collecting rings pretty soon and the Heat would have to go back to the drawing board because they wouldn't be nearly as well balanced/coached.

I'm as pumped that basketball's back as anyone and I'm so excited to see my boys play again. But getting D-Howard next year is the only thing that can make what's bound to be a disappointing early exit from the playoffs this year bearable. - BRADinLA

Rondo for Dwight? Not sure I'd do it. Where do we get a point guard that can run the team as well as him? He may not be as good as Chris Paul at the moment but he's one of the best in the league. Keep in mind, I really want DH12 in green but my dream is Rondo and Dwight ruling the league.
