“I believe this team is more talented than that team…but the key to the 2008 team is that everyone bought into the system….guys probably won’t play their normal amount of minutes that they have in the past because we’re such a talented team.” - Rajon Rondo
Bold. Bold statement. That 2008 team was near flawless. And since then, teams like the Knicks, Heat and Lakers have all modeled their franchises after Boston, building “superteams”.
Thing is, Boston did it with superstars past their primes and tossed in two young kids, Rondo and Perk. Both Perk and Rondo are now superstars at their respective positions. But yeah, this year’s Boston squad is deep, with the additions of Courtney Lee, Jason Terry, Darko Milicic and a healthy Jeff Green.
Boston may very well be the sleeper out East, but they still would have to face a megastorm out in LA after conquering Miami, New York and/or Chicago.

During an interview with CSNNE, Rajon Rondo said that he was getting a haircut in his basement when he saw a poster on the wall of the Celtics' 2008 NBA Championship team.
At about 2 minutes into the video above, Rondo says "I believe this team is more talented than that team. But the key to the success in 2008 is that everyone bought into the system. So if we can believe...
Rajon Rondo likes this year's Celtics. A lot. Rondo, who won an NBA title with Boston in 2008, thinks that this year's squad is the best that Danny Ainge has assembled since the point guard was drafted in 2006. "This is the best team we've had since I've been here, I think, as far as on paper, as far as the depth of talent," Rondo said, according to WEEI...
Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo hopes to lead the 2012-’13 team to the organization’s 18th championship.
One of the central questions as the Boston Celtics kick off their 2012-’13 season is whether point guard Rajon Rondo can be the strong leader the organization expects him to become.
Rondo held workouts last month in California with most of the members of the team...
Kevin Garnett sat down with CSNNE to discuss his close relationship with Rajon Rondo. KG says he's there for Rondo at any hour of the night to give him advice and that they are both stubborn guys (shocker). It's always a good thing when a team's two best players have a tight relationship.
We read previously that Rajon Rondo organized practices for the Celtics in LA and the guys played some football. Looks like some of that is carrying over to Turkey now. Check out the video above of Rondo throwing a touchdown pass to Jeff Green. Hopefully we will see some crazy court-long alley oops from Rondo to Green this season.

We’re down to the final four top plays of 2012. Today’s matchup features two plays from the C’s starting back court (well, once everyone has returned from injury). Is this when Rondo gets unseated?

Rajon Rondo Vs CP3….Who Is Better?
There are a lot of great point guards in the NBA these days. However, Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul are among the top five at the position. Some may argue that both could be MVP candidates during a given season. If you had to choose one of these players, which one would you want on your team?
Rondo Is A Playmaker
There is no denying that Chris Paul...
The Boston Celtics are much like the original Mars Rover.
Experimental in nature, the Spirit was only supposed to last a short time. Instead, it long outlasted its expected shelf life, and it spawned a new generation of rovers that ushered in a new era of space exploration.
The new Big-3 era was really only supposed to last three years. The Celtics were supposed to...
The "Big Three" is no more. A new era of Celtics basketball is about to begin, and it will likely begin and end with Rajon Rondo leading the way. Yes, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are still here while Ray Allen joins the Miami Heat, but don't be fooled. Judging by the chatter emerging from Celtics training camp, it is becoming increasingly clear that this is Rondo...
The Celtics are heading to Europe for a business trip, and more than that, it will be an opportunity for many new faces to acquaint themselves with the rest of their new teammates. While Rajon Rondo, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are still suiting up for the C's, a new crop of players will join the ranks this season, with a handful of newbies hoping to make their impact and help...
