Rajon Rondo has played his whole career with Boston Celtics. He played 7 seasons with Paul Pierce and 6 season s with Kevin Garnett. Seven of those years he was also with head coach Doc Rivers. Now Pierce, Garnett, and Rivers are gone and only Rondo remains.
Apparently Rondo doesn’t really care that they are all gone. Here is what he told Boston.com
“It wasn’t difficult at all,” said Rondo. “I didn’t feel anything. I actually landed in LA the night of the draft. I had 45 text messages come through the phone. I thought I was traded.
“It’s not the first teammates that I’ve been close to who were traded away — Perk, Tony Allen. It’s part of the process. This is a fresh start for us, a new coach and a new team. I’m excited about the fresh start.”
It’s no secret that not everyone got along within the Celtics there was some tension, this just proves it more.
