Rajon Rondo has evolved into the Boston Celtics’ undisputed leader, and according to teammate Paul Pierce, Rondo needs to take on more responsibility on the offensive end of the floor. Per the Boston Herald: “The Celtics have completed their first workout and it appears the rise of Rajon Rondo is continuing apace. Paul Pierce was asked if anyone stood out in the opening session. ‘Rondo looked great today,’ said Pierce. ‘He’s pushing the ball. He looks strong. He’s knocking down his shot. He’s TAKING his shot. But that’s what we want from him, and that’s what we’re going to expect from him. You know, he’s our leader. We’re going to look for him to do a lot of good things for us.’”
