This feature is usually on every Monday but since we knew there were no games today, we decided to hold off until Christmas Eve for...

NBA Notes: Imperfect Rajon Rondo Was Perfect Celtics Point Guard

The best way to sum up why Rajon Rondo was simultaneously such a unique and polarizing player in Boston was this: He could make unselfishness seem like a selfish act.
