Apparently tired of hearing me scream at the television, Rajon Rondo is ready to stay in front of his man this season.

My Night at Celtics Practice

The Celtics held an open practice for season ticket holders last night at Tsongas Arena in Lowell. Even though I'm not a season ticket holder, I was able to attend (thanks to Steve C.).
