Tim MacLean (@TimMacLean_) Predicting what the 2013-14 campaign has in store for Rajon Rondo is a bit tricky. At this point in the offseason we still aren’t sure when he’ll be ready to suit up and, as recent as today, the Celtics still have “no timetable” for his return. But given the state of this team, Rondo should be in no rush to get back on the floor with his teammates even if he thinks he’s almost 100%. Similar to Derrick Rose, Rondo should be with the mind set of fully recovering from the torn ACL he suffered in January of last season. The difference, though, is that Rondo’s Celtics aren’t contending for a title like Rose’s Bulls were. And because of that, the Celtics can afford to begin their rebuilding efforts without their star floor general. With that said, I would expect to see Rondo make his season debut either in late December or at the turn of the calendar year. Until then, Rondo will continue to lead on the sideline during both games and practices as he began to do l...

The mercurial point guard then went on to have surgery in early February and,...

How crucial is Rajon Rondo to the Celtics for the 2013-14 NBA season?

KG the coach? Doc thinks Rondo, Pierce and Garnett will all be coaches after they retire

Is it just me or have we heard from Doc Rivers way more than Brad Stevens in the Boston media this summer? This despite the fact that Doc, you know, doesn't work here anymore — and Stevens does.
