Celtics media day is off and running, and Danny Ainge was one of the first interviews of the day on Celtics.com.

Obviously Rondo is the leader of this team, and the fact that he's captain..he fact that..well I don't know if he's the captain. I don't think a decision has been made on that but he's the player who's had the most success
Ainge immediately starting smiling while backtracking, hinting that while Rondo is not officially "the captain", it may be something that happens at some point this season.
And in related news, Rondo invited the entire team over his house for a big team dinner in preparation for camp. Unfortunately Rondo himself will not be ready to practice fully. From Paul Flannery.
