Is Rondo ‘Most Underappreciated Leader’?

(Rajon) Rondo organized offseason workouts in Los Angeles, oversaw the basketball drills, arranged for flag football games, even tried to coax the Celtics’ owners into giving them the private plane to travel to the West Coast. League rules forbid that — “we paid our own way for everything,” Rondo said — but the trip was his idea, hatched from a conversation he had with (Paul) Pierce at a Barack Obama fundraiser.
“It was Rajon’s show,” (Kevin) Garnett said.
That, insisted Keyon Dooling, is nothing new. It has been, he scolded, that way for years.
“He is the most underappreciated leader in this league,” Dooling declared. “Do you know how many times we were at the Rondo family home [last season]? We were there all the time, bonding, building team chemistry.
“Honestly, our veterans didn’t do a very good job of supporting him in his [leadership] role.”
