There was some bad news in Boston yesterday despite The Celtics double overtime win over the Miami Heat. The team lost their All Start Point Guard, Rajon Rondo to a torn ACL and with that went their hopes of any kind of major post season run. It’s not that the team doesn’t have other good players, but Rondo was a total game changer type of leader on that squad.
Rondo emerged as an unlikely superstar on a team full of superstars over the past 5 years and has become a polarizing player in the league. As of this AM he is/was the NBA Assists Leader averaging a torrid pace of 11.1 per game. Now the Celtics are going to greatly miss that kind of production from the offensive Quarterback.
As much as I never like to see any player go down to a major injury, (and I hope he has a full recovery) I’d be lying if I was secretly happy as a die hard Knicks Fan! That being said, hopefully we will see Rondo back next year, because he really is a fun player to watch.
