Rondo participates in contact drills

BOSTON -- Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said Wednesday that injured point guard Rajon Rondo has begun participating in contact drills but is still relegated to wearing a large pad on his left hand in order to do so.

Scal Defends Rondo

It was nice to see Scal step up for Rondo against Tanguay today ...On Rajon Rondo:“I think he’s a fantastic player. I think he’s very bright. He is the smartest player I’ve ever played with. He understands the game on a higher level. Does he have his moments that are difficult, like if you had to coach him? I would say yes. His relationship with Doc Rivers was fine. Don’t think it wasn’t. Rajon Rondo is a great player.”Tanguay brought up the usual arguments against Rondo - that he's not consistent, that you don't max a non-scorer, that he's a liability late in games, etc..  ...

Rajon Rondo may play Opening Night vs Nets

Rajon Rondo suffered a broken hand on September 25 and underwent surgery to repair a metacarpal fracture the following day which is supposed to keep him out six to eight weeks. That timetable meant that Rondo would miss the Celtics season opener against the Nets on October 29. However, head coach Brad Stevens thinks that the star guard may be available come opening night in Boston. #Celtics coach Brad Stevens: a chance Rajon Rondo could be cleared for contact by end of week, opening night still possible. — Scott Souza (@scott_souza) October 20, 2014 Rondo wasn't as optimistic as his...

Opinions about Rajon Rondo's future with the Boston Celtics are like butts - everyone has them, they all stink, and zillions of people on the Internet will inevitably click any link that offers them the chance to view someone else's.That last parallel is especially salient when noted basketball insiders, people with real industry connections, go public with their thoughts in a very explicit, detailed fashion.

Do these sound like the words of a player that's frustrated with his situation? The media is definitely looking for angles and "hot sports takes" at this time of year and I keep hearing people say things like "Rajon Rondo is going to want to get out of Boston" or "that relationship has soured to the point where both the team and player need a change of scenery." Read the following comments by Rondo and tell me if you think any of that is the case here.

Rajon Rondo feels positive vibe

Rajon Rondo has spent his second straight training camp as a kind of associate coach under Brad Stevens.The Celtics point guard obviously has no choice. It’s either help teach the youngsters, or spend his time as a hermit in the trainer’s room waiting for his left hand to heal. That’s simply not in the nature of a player who envisions himself as a coach.So Rondo, in his physically restricted capacity, takes part in skeleton drills and gets in the ear of rookie Marcus Smart. He discusses schemes with members of the staff.
