"Beware the ides of March." A famous Shakespeare line, but in relation to this crazy condensed NBA season, the line takes on an entirely different meaning.
This season the Ides, or 15th of March for all those who did not purchase the Julius Caesar cliff notes, represents the 2012 NBA trade deadline. And with it comes the most chaotic—and possibly the most exciting—stanza of the season.
This time of year bring rumors of sweeping changes throughout the league. This year is no different. With Dwight Howard, Monta Ellis and Pau Gasol leading the pack of stars who are on "the block," people are lining up ways they can sell off their expendables for a star.
One of the more interesting players making this year's list is Boston All-Star guard Rajon Rondo. With the Celtics' "Big Three" looking as if their title window has closed, Rondo's name has come up as a player who could find himself sporting a new jersey this month.
While Celtic general manager Danny Ainge has tried to quell the chatter surrounding a possible Rondo swap, there seems to be a real chance the Celtics' most valuable trade chip could be moved.
While the odds are definitely against a move, it is interesting what the Celtics could get in return for a 26-year-old NBA champion point guard.
