Kevin Garnett: Rajon Rondo Playing Through Injury

KG has a fairly simple explanation for Rondo’s struggles of late — the Celtics’ point guard is playing hurt. From WEEI: “Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo‘s recent struggles have been well documented. While he appeared more explosive on the parquet, he still went scoreless and rebound-less while recording eight assists against the Pacers on Wednesday night. That (lack of) production led to this question posed to teammate Kevin Garnett: What’s wrong with Rajon Rondo? ‘Rondo’s playing hurt,’ said Garnett. ‘He’s hurting. He’s giving us everything he has. He’s grinding. He’s playing countless minutes for us, and he’s not playing like a washed-up guy.’”

    Rondo better cut that out. We already got the number one seed locked up. Boston should just take some L’s and settle for a 2 seed while Rondo gets rest.

    rest your starting five, i bet arroyo and bradley can get the job done.

    I think Boston is aiming for a better record than the Lakers, home court advantage would have clinched the series last season.

    Didn’t Doc say Rondo’s ankle was fine. He’s just sucking it up like he will the rest of his career when the HOF guys are gone

  • Riggs

    @bulls 2011 champs(funny name)
    when they’ ll be gone maybe he ll take 23 shots a game like drose.

  • Bulls2011champs

    Doc says “rondo is healthy he’s just going through a tough stretch.” He probably will take 23 shots a game and miss 75 percent of them while never coming close to what Drose has already achieved. I can not wait to see rose take rondo to school in the east finals. GO BULLS

    @el_larsen – Funny.
    Rondo better make sure they’re all runners and layups thought or else his FG% will be in the low 30′s.

    Plantar Fasciitis hurts like he’ll. I can barely walk when mine flares up. Can’t imagine running sprints full out with it… Hope RR gets some rest.

    arroyo and delonte are ok for the last months.

  • ripslam

    What has Rose “achieved” so far? A ROY trophy and some first-round exits? Rondo has a ring to his name.

    @ripslam: Before this season, Rondo played with Allen, Pierce, and Garnett, as opposed to Rose’s Deng, Tyrus Thomas, and Joakim Noah. Maybe, just MAYBE that’s got something to do with the ring to Rondo’s name or the first round exits to Rose’s?

    Bulls fans are clueless – do you honestly think in a 7 game series you could beat the celtics.

  • el_larsen

    wow rondo must be very good.
    only a 21 pick of the draft, but now he s the celtics pg,trusted by a bunch of hall of famers,has a RING.AND HE STILL CAN T SHOOT
    sounds like genius to me

  • Justin

    Why do you guys think number of rings matters? Rondo is playing with 3 Hall of Famers. Paul Pierce is vastly overrated but he’ll get in I’m sure. You don’t think Rose has a ring if he’s on that team? I really wish people would put to rest the argument of how many rings a person has though. Steve Kerr has 5 rings so he must be as good as Kobe Bryant. Robert Horry has 7 I think, so he must be better than MJ. LeBron has no rings so he must not be better than anybody.
