If you happen to be wondering what the relationship is like between Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens and star point guard Rajon Rondo, it looks to be pretty good to start. Check out the below quote that Rondo gave during the Celtics media day: “Me and Brad have become best friends,” said Rondo. “We talk every day, we laugh and joke. We just had dinner the other night. I’m going to help him, he’s going to help me. “He has my full support. I told him from Day 1 when he came to my camp that I’m behind him 100 percent. Whatever he wants to do, whatever he wants to change, I have an open mind. I’m ready to listen and to be accountable for what he wants to do.” We’ll see if the love fest continues into the season. *** Rajon Rondo says Brad Stevens are friends [Boston Globe]
