Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo will miss the remainder of the NBA season after suffering a torn ACL in Friday's loss to the Atlanta Hawks. With their floor general on the court, the Celtics have a 99.2 offensive efficiency rating and a 100.4 rating without him. Does this give Boston hope that they will be a playoff team without their starting point guard?

The fans have spoken and the starters of the 62nd NBA All-Star Game are set. There wasn't a lot of parity among the players who were elected to start. The West team will consist of two Lakers, two Clippers and a Thunder guard, while the East will be represented by two Celtics, two Heat players and a Knicks forward. How do you size up the 10 players who will be the first to step foot on the hardwood in Houston? Set your rankings below!

The Celtics-Heat rivalry hasn't gone away. Rajon Rondo's foul on Dwyane Wade in the closing seconds of Miami's opening-night win was proof enough of that. Wade didn't appreciate it, calling it a "punk play" and hinting that payback might be coming in their next meeting. Is Rondo, who was called for a flagrant foul in the incident, a dirty player? Or was it just a hard foul meant to send a message? Discuss and vote.

On Thursday, "First Take" debated the future of the Celtics, with a little help from Boston superfan Bill Simmons. Simmons, Stephen A. Smith, and Skip Bayless went through a few different scenarios as to what the Celtics could do -- everything from trying for it with their current group of players to blowing it up and starting over completely. What's your take?
