Stein: the Knicks' "futile" attempt to get Rondo

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

With the Knicks trying to do everything to upgrade their point guard position and subsequently attempt to keep Carmelo Anthony in New York, ESPN's Marc Stein is reporting that they're begging Boston again for Rajon Rondo.

In yet another episode of Everyone Loves Rajon, these Marc Stein tweets are the best:

Credit Stein for using words like "lack," "lust," "tempt," and "futile" in describing New York's attempts to pry Rondo away from the Celtics.  With many of us waiting with baited breath (<--a phrase I only know because of the late great Johnny Most) for the other shoe to drop with the trade deadline fast approaching, a laugh here and there is a nice break from the rumor madness.

Sean Deveney of the Sporting News is reporting that "despite swirling rumors, expect Rondo to stay with Celtics." One source says:

"It really is the same thing, teams call about him but the Celtics want him and he wants to be the leader of that team," one source said. "It has always been his intention to establish himself in that role, to be part of the rebuilding and to stay in Boston for a long time. Nothing has changed."
