Despite the distraction of rumors, Rondo needs to show the world why he's capable of being the best point guard
Work hard and turn your dreams into reality. That's what most believe, and honestly hard work does workout in some ways, depending on your god given abilities, or some luck and attitude. Rondo has the ability, and the hard work ethic. That has been proven many times. Rondo is at his peak, he's 28 and the time is now to become the best or a top 5 point guard once again. This is a contract year, and despite the rumors, and what Danny intends to do with Rondo.
As hard as it sounds. Rondo needs to focus on himself. With this one season in mind as selfish as it sounds. He can't think about anything but this season. His focus should be playing the best basketball of his career, because honestly that will result in more wins than losses for Boston. Rondo's focus should be on his teammates and the season ahead. His focus shouldn't be on Danny's master plan. Rondo is playing for his career this season,and with the Celtics looking more and more like a bottom feeder again in the Eastern Conference.
Rondo needs to be a bit selfish. He's auditioning in some ways for other teams. Not because he wants to, but because that's the nature of it. Because it's the best thing for him, and I'm sure he wants to get back at Ainge a bit for years of rumors. At the end of the day Rondo may end up in Boston. But for his sake, and as a fan of the player, no matter of what name is on the front. He needs to focus on himself this season. The team part will fall into place. DeMarcus Cousins still thinks highly of Rondo at least. A possible teammate of Rondo's someday? He called Rondo the best point guard during an interview with Bill Simmons.
