Time has allowed the news to sink in for Boston. It was a shock Sunday afternoon when the team announced All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo would miss the remainder of the year after tearing his ACL. The look of shock on Paul Pierce's face when Doris Burke informed him of Rondo's injury was gut-wrenching. As was the brief glimpse fans got of Doc Rivers walking with Rondo toward the locker room following Boston's overtime win over Miami.
The Celtics have yet to play since the announcement that Rondo would be out. There is no telling what the emotion will be like when the Celtics take on the Kings on Wednesday at TD Garden.
It is not like the Celtics have not played without Rondo. They did, after all, defeat the Heat in double overtime after Rondo was pulled from the lineup literally moments before the opening tip.
The question the Celtics face now is what kind of team will they be without Rondo? Rondo had become the focal point of the team's offense -- avera...

My exact face when I found out Rajon Rondo was out for the season.
It is time my friends, time to say good-bye to this current Celtics group, and start to realize that the quest for 18 this season is over. Possibly, even out for a while.

The Celtics are now 2-0 since losing Rajon Rondo for the season with an ACL tear in his right knee. A vocal minority have speculated that perhaps this team might be better off without the services of the All-Star point guard, a notion the coach dismissed quickly on Thursday.

BOSTON — Kevin Garnett was trying to offer consolation. He wanted to calm everyone in the wake of the devastating news that Rajon Rondo would miss the rest of the season with a torn ACL in his right knee, and reassure anyone who would listen that the Celtics are not about to panic.
In doing so, however, he offered up imagery from one of the darkest eras of Celtics basketball. The...
A torn ACL is a death sentence to any athlete. When a star in the league suffers that gruesome injury, all you can do is feel for them. It is a helpless feeling being that player, especially when they believe it is only a minor injury. That was the case for Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo, after he thought he had only hyperextended his knee during Boston’s double overtime loss...

Boston has always had a history of having at least one future hall-of-fame player on their roster. Now that Pierce and Garnett are at the end of their NBA career, the Celtics as a franchise are looking to remain relevant. The loss of Rajon Rondo makes it that much more difficult to see who on the roster will stand-up and say "I am a Celtic."
Come on. Seriously, come on.
What the hell? It didn’t even look like anything when it happened. Suddenly there were whispers on Twitter of a possible serious Rondo knee injury. The MRI had been performed, but the results couldn’t be confirmed.
What happened next made the whole thing seem even more surreal than it already was. For the first time in a long time for the sports world...
