Rajon Rondo Is Fine

RedsArmyAdmin April 24, 2009 Uncategorized 8 Comments on Rajon Rondo Is Fine

Rondo rose I said somewhere to someone that the Celtics can withstand losing KG better than they can withstand losing Rajon Rondo… and I stick by that comment. 

So watching Rondo get carried off at the end of the game, after everything seemed fine, was a bit scary.  We've kinda gone through it in some of the comments, but Rondo is fine.

"I was limping and Billy didn't want to see me limp, so he just carried
me," Rondo said. "I didn't slip or nothing. I'm fine. Ankles are fine. 

"Maybe the tape was too tight," Rondo said. "It's just the tape job." 

Sure, blame the training staff.  While we're on the topic of Rajon Rondo, I need to share this link from Jackie MacMullan on Rondo.  I never got a chance to mention it yesterday, but it's worth the read.

"I'm just telling you, Rajon is real cocky," said center Kendrick Perkins. "He's got swagger. The good kind."

wasn't always true. Two seasons ago, before the banners and the
plaudits and applause, when Rondo was in charge of a team that won just
24 games, he'd throw a no-look bullet and when it was dropped out of
bounds he'd roll his eyes in exasperation. If he set up a shooter for
the open jumper and it clanged off the rim, the shooter was subjected
to the Rondo stare, a look steeped in disdain and aggravation.

Rivers hauled his supposed floor leader into his office and asked him, "Do you know your teammates hate playing with you?"

Good stuff.  And I'll quote Chuck from last night's live blog:  Everyone laughed at us at the beginning of the season when we said Rajon Rondo is an elite point guard in the class of Deron Williams and Chris Paul.  Who's laughing not?

And since the KG saga refuses to die, I'll just share this from Doc on KG

"There's a chance, he has a chance to play [last] night – but he's
not," Rivers said before Game 3. "We just hope that he gets better and,
if it happens, it would be great, obviously. Like I said before, I
don't think it's going to happen."

    Great article. Reading about RR’s edict about never letting his feet touch the ground made me feel better about him getting carried to the locker room last night. You know he’s making it as a point guard in the NBA when the road playoff crowd chants “Rondo Sucks!” during his free-thows.

    Rajon rondo is a beast.
    My take on last nights game: Stay Focused, Pissed off, and Aggressive and this baby is going 5.
    Get overconfident for a sunday afternoon game and think you can run over the bulls whenever, and the series is coming back tied

  • Thanks Jester.
    I think we’ve got a couple little tweaks to add, and some things to add along the side.

    Nothing to do with anything, just amazing.

    I don’t always agree with the Sports Guy, but Billy Walker truly is the ultimate 12th man.

  • Papa Irish

    i think we need to bring back the RONDO’S BETTER chants for game 5….. then again its probly not a good thing to anger rose

  • Papa Irish

    and you love billy for it now, but hopefully he’s not the ultimate 12th man his whole career
