2.The Return of Rajon Rondo
At one point last year, I read an article that suggested the Boston Celtics were playing better basketball, and were a better team, with Rajon Rondo out of the line-up than when he was in it.
Ha. Ha ha. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
Oh man, that’s funny. In a ridiculous, “turn in your press credentials now” kind of way.
Sure, the Celtics went on a nice little run following Rondo’s injury – people step up. Clearly, though, the Boston Celtics are not a better team with Rondo on the bench. He is one of the top 20 (some would argue top 10) players in this league, and his arrival will instantly make the Celtics a competitive squad. I can’t wait to watch him dazzle us with his vision, creativity, and freakish athleticism again.
