Celtics’ Rajon Rondo: This is My Team Now
“It’s a brand new start for us as a (Celtics) team,” (Rajon) Rondo said.
While his former teammates and coach have gone ring-chasing, Rondo seems content to stay behind in Boston and build again — this time, around him. There’s no telling whether the business of basketball will allow it — whether team president Danny Ainge ultimately will build around Rondo or cash in his most precious asset to hasten the process of starting over.
Whatever happens, let the record show that Rondo — unlike some of his All-Star peers if placed in the same predicament — isn’t looking for an escape route of his own.
“This is my team; why would I want to leave?” Rondo said. “Why would I want out? I’ve never really backed away from a challenge.”
