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.

Well, there you have it. Rondo gave not one…well you know the rest is.
Earlier today, we got a look at what could possibly be Rajon Rondo’s first shoe with Anta. His teammates have also been wearing some fresh kicks over the first couple of days at training camp.

Chris Paul might be the best point guard in the NBA, but to Doc Rivers he’s simply a talented guy without a ring.

Paul Pierce won plenty of Atlantic Division titles during his days with the Boston Celtics, but at the end of the seasons when he exited the playoffs without lifting the Larry O'Brien trophy, none of those six divisional titles didn't carried any weight.
The only one that mattered was the one he captured during the 2008 season, en route to his first and only NBA title.

The Brooklyn Nets are certainly in a “win now” type of mode after getting Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Jason Terry from the Celtics to help their already solid core of Deron Williams, Brook Lopez, and Joe Johnson win a championship. Their GM Billy King recently reiterated this at Duke University, where the team is holding training camp.
