This is like 4th of July fireworks.
This latest rumor bomb is easily the biggest:
First reaction: SWEET GRANDMOTHER’S FUCKING SPATULA! Excuse my language.
Look, I love Rondo, I have made that very clear on this blog. I don’t want to see him go. But if his leaving brings back the 1st overall pick, I’m going to have a hard time saying no. Especially if we keep our 6th overall pick (which I highly doubt but since this is all rumor, I can dream can’t I?)
And that’s the next thing to remember. This is just a rumor. But be ready. There will be literally a bajillion rumors, flying a mile a minute for the next 11 hours, 37 min and 55 second heading into the draft (yes, I checked the NBA.com countdown counter thing). Maybe some will be real, and maybe most will not be.
BUT, this rumor is built on some pretty strong legs. The Kings have had a long interest in Rondo (despite him not really wanting to go there), the Cavs have been trying to shop the number one pick, and the Celtics have contacted the Cavs about getting that very same pick. Coincidence? Ehhh, maybe?
Needless to say, it’s going to be a very hectic day in the basketball world.
