Rajon Rondo wants to “stick to the script” in Boston
Boston Celtics point guard, Rajon Rondo, has been the subject of trade rumors seemingly since the Celtics short playoff exit last year against the New York Knicks. Since then, Boston has said goodbye to their coach Doc Rivers, and two long-time stars, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge has seemingly shipped everyone out while acquiring draft picks and cap space. However, Ainge has been steadfast in his stance to build around Rondo. And by the recent comments from Rondo, the slick point guard out of Kentucky would like to remain with the team as well.
“I like to stick to the script,” Rondo said before the Celtics played the Oklahoma City Thunder Friday night at TD Garden. “I don’t like change much. I wouldn’t mind staying here the rest of my career. Things don’t always seem to go that way, but like I said before, it’s just a business. I wouldn’t mind extending another 10 years in Boston.”
Rondo is turning 28 next month, so for him to stay in Boston another 10 years would seem unlikely. Ainge has a propensity for trading in his chips before they are worthless. However, for Boston fans, this is great news as we’ve seen many stars across the NBA not commit to their current teams beyond the length of their contract.
