What happened to your headband divo?

A few bits of news and notes that don't really fit in anywhere else.

KG passes Shaq in career rebounds - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

Celtics forward Kevin Garnett finished Tuesday's 97-92 overtime victory over the Houston Rockets with a team-high 13 rebounds, recording another personal milestone in the process, as he vaulted former teammate Shaquille O'Neal for 12th all time on the NBA's career rebounding list. Garnett has hauled in 13,100 rebounds over the course of his 17-year NBA career -- one more than O'Neal.

Bad Service from Celtics - BostonHerald.com

A league source confirmed last night Rajon Rondo [stats] and Paul Pierce [stats] were fined for missing their NBA Day of Service appearances during All-Star weekend in Orlando, Fla. A USA Today report listed the fines — also assessed to Kobe Bryant — at $20,000 apiece, though the source would not confirm the amount. Rondo declined comment, saying, "If I talk about it, they’ll just fine me again."

Cedric Maxwell: Celtics placed $10 bounties in NBA

During a discussion about the recent report that coaches for the New Orleans Saints were offering rewards between $1,000 and $1,500 for injuring opposing players, former Celtics star Cedric Maxwell claimed the NFL isn’t the only league that’s doled out bounties. "We did it in the NBA," Maxwell told Steve Burton on Sunday night. "We had a guy, Len Elmore, who used to love to take charges. He’s an analyst right now for CBS. You might want to hear this Len. We had a bounty on you. If you stepped on his chest, you got paid."

Deron Williams, who scored 57 points against Charlotte the same day Rondo recorded his historic 18-point, 20-assist, 17-rebound triple-double against New York, said during a recent radio interview that Rondo’s achievement was the greater of the two. "I thought it was more impressive than mine, personally," said the Nets point guard of the Sunday happenings. "He almost put up 20 (points), 20 (rebounds) and 20 (assists). That’s tough to do. My career high in rebounds is nine."
