Found October 28, 2012 on Red's Army:
Thanks to Sportsgal1972, I had the pleasure of attending today’s open practice at the Garden. Despite all the action, the highlight of the afternoon was this woman’s Rajon Rondo jacket. Straight money. I gotta get two of these for John and Jay. The Celtics treated this as a real practice. Assistant coach Kevin Eastman explained each drill to the crowd. How seriously does Doc take practice? Eastman said Doc spends about 60-90 minutes preparing the itinerary for practice. I’ve uploaded some practice videos to our YouTube channel. Nothing overly exciting, but worth your time if you want to examine X’s and O’s. The video below is about two minutes worth of screen-and-roll offense.

Rajon Rondo "signs a baby"

At the end of the Celtics open practice yesterday there seemed to be a surprisingly small amount of security. Fans crowded onto the Garden floor in an effort to get the players to sign autographs. Many, including Rajon Rondo, happily obliged. There's a great scene in the movie Talladega Nights where Ricky Bobby says "Absolutely ma-am, I would love to sign your baby."...

Is Rajon Rondo Ready to Make the Proverbial Leap?

Skepticism Still Remains That Rajon Rondo Is Ready to Grasp Leadership Role   Rajon Rondo is the leader of the Boston Celtics. At least, that’s what I am told. I read it in Jackie MacMullan’s eye-opening piece last week.  As well as CLNS Radio’s own Daniel Baker’s piece on Celtics Media Day last month.  As [...]

Video: Rondo says he loves his teammates, has fun with the media

A playful Rajon Rondo spoke to the media following today's open practice. The whole video is worth a watch. Rondo concludes the video with the following quote: "I love my teammates. These guys are great. This is a close group of guys. We bonded pretty well overseas and we've been together actually the last couple nights. A couple of us have been together, going to dinners...

A Look back: Rajon Rondo versus the Chicago Bulls

A look back on Rajon Rondo's emergence as an impact player in this league, where in the first round of the 2009 NBA Playoffs he showed us just how good he could be. Taking on a rising bulls team with Derrick Rose (ROY and #1 overall pick), Rajon Rondo led the Kevin Garnett-less Celtics to victory in 7 games. Over those 7 games, Rondo averaged 19.4 points, 11.6 assists, and 9...

On this day- Rajon Rondo gets career high 24 assists

ESPN Boxscore On this day today (October 29th in 2010), Rajon Rondo had the second most assists in a game ever by a Celtic with 24 (Bob Cousy had 28 in a game in 1959), in a win over the New York Knicks. Rondo had a triple double (10 rebounds and 10 points) and he also had as many assists as the entire opposing Knicks team. One of his better performances. Do you remember this? This...

2012-13 Celtics Are On a Mission To Hoist Another Championship Banner

Last season, the Celtics season shockingly ended abruptly after folding to the eventual Champion Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Not that they didn’t make a good run. They came back from a difficult start and rolled through the playoffs looking like they were in good form. However, after some controversial contests with the Heat where there were a number of questionable...

Some potentially meaningful stats from the Celtics preseason

- Rajon Rondo made 17-22 free throws in the preseason, good for 77%.  As I mentioned before, if this is a sign of things to come, watch out NBA. - Jason Terry hit 18 of 26 three’s, 69%.  Obviously he won’t keep that up, but it definitely bodes well for the new shooting guard.  Paul Pierce also made more than half his attempts from downtown, 14-27.  By comparison our old...

What if the Celtics and Patriots switched?

Credit to CelticsLife's one and only EK on the pic.Hey, with so many Patriots fans ragging on an aging Brady, how about injecting a little youth to the position. Rondo did play QB in high school after all. Now, as for Tom Brady as a point guard. I think he's got the vision but not really the athleticism. If the Celtics ran a purely half court offense and just let Tom Brady...
