Rondo's one of the best point guards in the NBA. That's a statement that's said about Rondo often. It's a true statement, but when most talk about Rondo. It's usually about trading him, or a rumor about him, and how big of a head case he is. His great gift is often buried in the back yard because of the rumors surrounding him. I wish we could talk more about Rondo the player, and the leader that he's become. Along with the growth that he's shown in the past years. Instead of the good stuff, were given the daily regiment of rumors.
Spokeswoman for Rajon Rondo's agent, Bill Duffy, said both men deny that Celtics guard has demanded a trade.— Mark Murphy (@Murf56) September 1, 2014
Some blogs could care two bleeps about Rondo. They've decided along time ago that he's not the answer. They want to be little GM's, and they want to talk about Rondo's value all day. Instead they should be talking about how dumb it is to let Rondo go. This latest rumor from Jackie Mac, a legendary Boston journalist. Has me a bit curious of what's going on. I will say this. Danny Ainge has a great relationship with some reporters. Maybe this is a political move by the president of the Celtics. I don't want to jump the gun on that thought, but why not question it in some fashion.
Who can we believe out there? Nobody really, and we just need to accept it I suppose. Nothing has changed when it comes to Rondo and Boston. He's on the block always, and now for the first time a report suggests that Rondo wants out..
Multiple league sources have repeatedly said that Rondo wants to start the season in Boston and see where things go from there. A similar sentiment has trickled out of Celtics camp, as well.
Rondo is hopeful that the team Danny Ainge is assembling around him is better than most anticipate, that they can be this season's feel-good story not only in the East but throughout the NBA.
Multiple league and team sources agree the most likely scenario has Rondo beginning the season in Boston. Then, depending on how the team does, both sides will mutually agree to either ride it out or part ways sooner rather than later.
If you don't think this hurts Boston. It does, and when a star player wants to leave. That doesn't bold well for how things are being ran.
