How the hell did the Celtics convince Rondo to be a color analyst?

Comcast SportsNet today announced that Celtics’ point guard Rajon Rondo, as well as Celtics President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge and former Celtic Chris Herren, will join the network as guest on-air color commentators for upcoming out-of-town Celtics telecasts.

Rondo will join Comcast SportsNet play-by-play commentator Mike Gorman on-air on Monday, March 31st as the Celtics take on the Chicago Bulls at the United Center in Chicago.  He will fill in as color commentator for the first quarter of the game while Tommy Heinsohn breaks the game down from the CSN studios in Boston during Pre-Game, Halftime, and Post-Game. Cedric Maxwell will join Gorman after Rondo departs.

Rajon Rondo as a color analyst? What’s next, John as a supermodel?

One quarter will be enough for this experiment. I’m not expecting Rajon to offer strong opinions of his teammates, opposing players and referees. Any current player would do the same.

For those wondering why Rondo isn’t scheduled to play in this game, it’s the 2nd game of back-to-backs with the Bulls.

    I think they told him that he can also sneak in a joke or two about Joakim Noah’s appearance.

    Is he going to get in all this trouble and put under scrutiny for doing color for a quarter instead of sitting on the bench?

    Ainge-“well rajon while we here arebt happy with how you handled the events surrounding your birthday, you have a point so we decided not to fine you money. Remember this is brads team now not docs things are gonna be handled differently. That being said rajon, we decided to make you comment the game on march 31st when we play the bulls.”

    Rondo-“NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! JUST FINE ME YOU TWISTED SOB ANYTHING BUT THAT NOOOOOOO!!”

    Maybe this is how they got him to commentate seriously though I really think it’s being required because of birthday gate lol
