yes, its a rumor and yes it didn't go through, but i have always liked the guy, ever since high school at Oak Hill when he was averaging 12 assists a game. I thought to myself thats a pass first point guard that will do damage in the league, lol. but it saddens me to see them wanting to have an interest in trading their best young player who had 3 triple doubles in 14 games, LeBron has never done that! I was mainly just trying to see if any of you can make sense of trading the guy...

For what its worth, the Boston Globe says these rumors are total bs - that there is no way the C's would trade Rondo, but we'll see.

I do not know if its in that article, but a few stories said they the C's think Rondo peaked this year and while they like him, he may be worth more in a trade for teams who thinks he still has a lot of upside.  Also from Yahoo sports, "There has been some friction with Rondo, largely based on maturity."  Maybe there is some behind the scenes stuff that we have not heard about.

People can deny rumors all they want, don't mean it won't happen.

Thats the dumbest thing I've ever heard, ever.

Averages 12 points, 8 Assists, and 1.8 steals..

On a team full of scorers, Rondo does his job. You are an idiot.

only reason why i posted this is because when the Big Three are gone or diminishing, in the next two to three seasons, who is going to be that veteran contributing, Rondo. I still, no matter what anyone says, would put this guy in the second tier of point guards because he needs to do what he did, high assists, low turnovers, and nice rebounding for a point, for another whole season...

Rondo does a great job of doing his part on the Celtics team.

I think rondo does do a good job for the celtics but who wouldnt have those assists when they're playing alongside KG, ray allen, and paul pierce?

Good point SteveK, but I think that Rondo will still be able to prove himself even after they are gone.
