Yeah man, I can wear a headband upside down if I damn please in Spain!

Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo and Oklahoma City Thunder center Kendrick Perkins, close friends, have been discussing the possibility of playing together overseas, and have had representatives inquiring on the possibilities, sources said.

Rondo and Perkins are interested in playing in higher-paying countries, such as Italy, Spain and Russia, sources said. There’s no deal in the works, and it’s unclear if there’s even a team that could financially put together the kind of contracts it would take to lure the players.

Insurance premiums cut significantly into the money that teams are willing to pay frontline NBA starters, and in some instances, the difference left in pay won’t make the leap overseas worth making for some players.
These overseas games are going to need to start being televised in the States if Rondo, Perk and Paul Pierce start playing over there. So which country should they choose?

    And you are not going to believe it, but when I was editing it I realised there were two articles and both had the same picture so I thought that by some magic touch I had written it without checking it up lol...

    awesome news if they finally sign for the same team...and even sweeter if they sign in Spain and face Paul Pierce ;)

    LOL Bohemian. The magic of Celtics Life.

    If they're all in Spain, you will have to give us reports via youtube. Bohemian = future youtube sensation.

    I love your scoops.

    If they go to Spain I will have an excuse to NOT visit my family back home (and instead go watch Rondo, Perk and Paul!) :))
