Rondo behind the back fake…

“I definitely hate coming out. If I could play every minute of every game, I would.”
- Rajon Rondo
He had done all his homework. He was excited about wearing the headset. There’s part of him that’s like a little kid about this — he was genuinely excited.
I thought he was very good. He knows the team. Obviously he knows the game very well. He’s a lot more technical than people would think. He talked about some of the X’s and O’s. He talked about some of the things being captain, some of the other stuff.
For this to be a success tonight, for me, would be if people that are watching us walk away saying, ‘Wow, he’s a better kid than I thought.’
I think Boston has really missed the boat with this kid. I’m a Dorchester guy, I grew up in the city, and I just think the city has missed the boat in the sense that this is a good kid. He does a lot of good charity stuff outside of the Celtics that he’s never talked about. If BirthdayGate is the biggest offense that he has in his professional career, well, I don’t know what to say about that. That was just much ado about nothing.”
