Rondo graces Dime’s cover

Rondo dime cover

Rajon Rondo is Dime's new cover boy.

While aging point guard legends Steve Nash and Jason
are still chasing a championship into their late-30s,
Rondo kissed the Larry O’Brien trophy when he was 22 years old, in just
his second pro season and first as a full-time starter. That was in
2008. One year later, Rondo had his playoff breakout. And the year after
that, he reached All-Star and superstar status.

As the Boston Celtics battle to stay in the 2010 championship
picture, Rondo has taken charge as the team’s best player. Through Wednesday’s schedule, he was averaging
13.5 points, 9.8 assists and a League-high 2.4 steals per game, posting
two triple-doubles along the way. In February, Rondo made his All-Star
debut, and if the Celtics are going to win an 18th championship, it will
be Rondo – not
Ray Allen
, Paul Pierce or Kevin
– who carries them there.

After the jump, video of Rondo's cover shoot… along with some of his interview with Dime and an explanation of his signature move.

    Congratulations Rajon! Speaking of our play off push…
    Atlanta and Boston each have eight games left. The Hawks have 5 road games left to the C’s 4. In the “should win” category each team has five (Houston, @NY, @Toronto, Washington and @Chicago for the C’s) ( 2 Detroit games, @ Charlotte, Toronto and @Washington). Which leaves us with three intriguing games for each team with the same two opponents…
    The Cavs will face the Hawks twice including the season finale. I’m concerned that the Cavs could rest everyone that final game allowing Atlanta an easier time of securing a victory. The Celtics are on path for an Easter showdown with Cleveland.
    The other opponent each team shares is…Milwaukee. The Hawks face them once. The Celtics face the Bucks in two out of the last three games including the season finale. So here’s a harrowing thought; the Celtics could be facing the Bucks up to NINE times in April!!!
    The games are starting to count. Or are they? Will Doc continue tinkering the line up or focus exclusively on victories at any cost? The Green will basically have to run the table to control their own destiny. The C’s may continue to focus on rest and preparation and leave the seeding up to the Hawks’ success (or failure).
