Doc Rivers expects a big year from Rajon Rondo

Chuck - Red's Army August 13, 2014 Celtics News, Doc Rivers, Rajon Rondo 14 Comments

The Globe’s Gary Washburn caught up with Doc Rivers at a charity golf event in Rhode Island. There was some discussion about Rajon Rondo:

Rondo and Rivers have maintained a close relationship and the two have talked often this summer.

“Rondo’s going to be great this year,” Rivers said. “He’s going to be healthy. It’s the following year [after ACL surgery] that you become who you were. So I think Rondo will have a great year. And I think that will be great for the team.

“I do talk to Rondo. I don’t get into [his contract] because that’s an uncomfortable area for me and him, probably. So we don’t even touch that. I just think that he’s in a good frame of mind; that’s all that counts.”

The Celtics might win only 20-25 games but Rondo is going to have a HUGE year. Guys tend to play with extra focus and effort when tens of millions of dollars are on the line.

I’m stunned Doc would maintain a close relationship with a player he despises.

File under: More comments that prove Jeff Goodman and Gary Tanguay are dead wrong about RR.

    It’s amazing how obvious it is that certain guys in the media despise Rondo. Rondo laughs at some of their questions so they go home and write trash about him.

    • Coach A. Johnson

      They have seen him his entire career. They know what he is capable of, yet still doubt his ability. I am one of those Rondo homers. We can’t let a top 5 PG go. Let him have his chance to lead the C’s.

  • Curt Hays

    You’re right, Chuck. It’s crazy that Doc hates Rondo but talks to him anyway. I think he should talk to the media about how much he despises Rondo.

    Just get it over with, and tell us that you left because of Rondo!

    Despises? Gary Washburn is much more despicable than Rajon Rondo!

      I’m stunned someone took the words “irony” & “sarcasm” out of the dictionary.
