Celtics are Rajon Rondo’s Team Now?
With a roster full of Hall-of-Famers-to-be, establishing a pecking order of sorts as to who is in charge can be tricky.
When the Big Three came together in 2008, it was Paul Pierce’s team.
He’s still the captain and remains their best scoring threat on most nights. But Celtics have evolved into Rajon Rondo’s club throughout the course of this series.
There will be others who on any given night who may contribute more than Rondo to the Celtics’ success. But the more you watch the C’s play, the clearer it is that the Celts will only go as far as Rondo is able to lead them.
“They understand Rondo is the leader of the team,” said C’s coach Doc Rivers.
