NEW Music: Don’t Tell Nobody – Tink (@Official_Tink) feat Jeremih (@Jeremih)
This trade gives the Mavs the most well balanced starting five next to the Spurs who are on cruise control
right now after winning it all last year.
BOSTON — The Celtics traded point guard Rajon Rondo to Dallas on Thursday night, cutting ties with
the last remnant of Boston’s last NBA championship while giving Dirk Nowitzki and the Mavericks a
chance at another title.
The Celtics are sending the All-Star point guard and forward Dwight Powell to Dallas for Brandan
Wright, Jae Crowder, Jameer Nelson and draft picks.
Boston will also receive a conditional first-round pick in the 2015 draft and a second-rounder in 2016,
as well as a $12.9 million trade exception.
“My time in Boston has meant so much,” Rondo wrote on Twitter in addressing his departure.
“I’ve grown up with this city both as a basketball player and person. The love I have for the most loyal
And supportive fans in the league is unmatched.
“I look forward to building something special in Dallas.”
The Mavericks are 19-8 overall. They next play against the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night in
“We would like to thank Rajon for everything that he has done for the Celtics organization and the
success we have experienced during his tenure with us,” Celtics president of basketball operations
Danny Ainge said.
Rondo joins Nowitzki, Monta Ellis, Tyson Chandler and Chandler Parsons in a high-octane starting
five for the Mavs.
“Welcome to Rajon Rondo the newest member of the Dallas Mavericks,” team owner Mark Cuban
wrote on the social media application Cyber Dust. Cuban also thanked the three departing players,
calling them “Amazing players and better people.”
Parsons addressed the possibility of playing with Rondo earlier Thursday on 103.3 FM ESPN in
“To be able to get a guy like Rondo, it’s unbelievable,” he said. “It’s not every day that you can get a
point guard of his status, and the way he can pass the ball, he’s a difference-maker. To be able to
have that, with the combination of what we already have with our system and the players put around
him, it’s special. It’s definitely exciting. Like I said, I hope it goes through because he’s a heck of a
talent, one of [the] better point guards in the NBA.”
Rapper French Montana, who’s been on and off with reality TV star Khloe Kardashian, recently sent her sister Kourtney a beautiful card welcoming her third child into the world.
French meant well with the sincere, hand written letter he sent to Kourtney and her boyfriend Scott Discick, but the man can’t spell for shit.
At the very top of the letter, the rapper misspelled the word CONGRATULATIONS. It’s the first word on paper and the first thing you see as soon as you look at the note; big and bold and WRONG!
The sad part is the correct spelling of the word was already included on the paper he wrote the note on at the very bottom.
So apparently French Montana is stupid and blind.
He meant well though!
I’m surprised they didn’t kill this bul, and what was he smoking on ????

A Brooklyn rapper and 14 members of his entourage were arrested Wednesday morning in possession
of some serious firepower after leaving a Manhattan recording studio, officials said.
Bobby Shmurda, 19, was netted in a sting centered around the Quad Recording Studio in Times Square
on a sealed indictment, said Kati Cornell, a spokeswoman for the Office of the Special Narcotics Prosecutor.
The investigation involved violent incidents in Brooklyn that include shootings and narcotics traffic, she said.
Other members of his group, GS9, were also arrested. Cops were hunting for two more people, including a
parole violator, police said.
Record producer Sha Money XL, who signed Shmurda, was among those arrested. An unidentified man
who answered the phone at the studio said he couldn’t comment.

Shmurda is known for creating popular hip hop Shmoney Dance.
A law enforcement source said Shmurda was stopped in a car in Brooklyn after leaving the studio famous
for being the site of the 1994 nonfatal shooting of rapper 2Pac. A total of 16 weapons were confiscated
during the raid, a law enforcement source said.
The indictment is expected to be unsealed Thursday morning in Manhattan Supreme Court. The arrests
were the result of a longterm probe by the NYPD’s Brooklyn Violence Reduction Task Force.
