Doc Rivers on Rajon Rondo’s Play: ‘Coach’s Porn’

Rondo seems to be over his recent slump, and his play has got the coaching staff more than a little excited. WEEI reports: “In two games since taking a mental health day or resting an ailing pinky finger or whatever the heck kept Rajon Rondo from playing against the Timberwolves on Sunday, the Celtics point guard has produced 44 points on 20-of-33 shooting and 22 points against only one turnover. To make a long story short, Rondo is back. Rondo went through a five-game stretch in mid-March when he didn’t reach double figures in points or assists, causing many to question whether the absence of his pal Perkins had taken its toll mentally — a notion that in retrospect seems silly considering his aptitude and fortitude. Perhaps the greatest affirmation of Rondo’s return is the fact that he took nine shots from beyond nine feet — and knocked down six of them (66.7 percent). He entered the game shooting just 34.6 percent from 10-15 feet and 38.0 percent from 16-23 feet. ‘That was terrific,’ Celtics coach Doc Rivers told reporters. ‘Hell, I’m going to say it. I probably shouldn’t, but I call it coach’s porn. We kept moving the ball, and Rondo kept taking shots and I was yelling that jokingly to them. We were laughing, because we had a joke about it that I won’t get into. It was terrific.’ There you have it. Rondo performed so well that Rivers dubbed it ‘coach’s porn.’”

    …there’s too much to be said here.

  • Jacqueline Mitchell

    I’m not touching that comment.Oh no…

  • jarrett

    pause

  • Jer dawg

    Not sure where Coach is going with that, but that’s odd.

  • tRay

    Perhaps…

    So… Rondo’s play, turns him.. nvm.

  • Fat Lever

    Rondo has become the most important player in the big 4. Impressive, considering the 3 other guys are 1st ballot HOF’ers. He runs that team perfectly.

    Whoa Doc, settle down!
    At least buy him dinner first.

  • MikeC.

    If the Celtics get on a roll in the playoffs, the cameras may cut to the bench and show a view of a pants-less Doc Rivers relaxing on the bench.

    MikeC ftw!

  • Fat Lever

    By the way, if Corey Maggette is “Bad P0rn”, does that make Rondo, “Good P0rn”? Meaning, there’s lots of penetration and eventually someone gets a money shot.

  • robb

    Doc’s too excited. When they play against the Bulls, Rose’s game will be like ice cubes in his underwear

  • JTaylor21

    I could picture Doc looking like Terry Crews in Friday After Next.

  • neaorin

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    Fat Lever shut it down with that comment.

  • http://pickandroll.tumblr.com/ airs

    damn, yeah sorry mikeC. fat lever ftw haha

  • T-Money

    pretty sure doc would like that one back.

  • Slips

    LOL!

    Too much, Doc. Too much.

  • rich

    woah doc take a cold shower.. or watch rondo shoot some 3s

  • MookieBlaylock

    I think maybe the Celtics have become little to tight knit?

  • ernied

    So, when Doc sees Rondo heat up… he hears wah wah guitars in the background?

  • c.a

    Rondo Does Dallas

    Fat Lever wins this round. But I’m just glad to see Doc laughing and to see Rondo back to form. It couldn’t have come at a better time — C’s need to get on a roll before the playoffs start.

  • paul

    When Rondo is on, he’s the best player in the league. But to win a championship, the Cs need some depth, power and defensive toughness at center. They need Perk. And it’s just STUPID to claim that The Trade had nothing to do with Rondo’s slump. This is a guy whose game is all about motivation.

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Rondo was great. They still can’t rebound.

  • Heals

    Could the mojo be coming back to this team…

  • http://ZOGS.COM ZOGS

    OHHH AND THE WAY RONDO HANDLES HIS BALLS

  • http://slamonline.com nbk

    Allen – Shaq should help that a little. He takes up so much space, and free’s garnett to do what he really wants, operate from 12-18 feet away from the hoop

  • http://dude Chukaz

    If the Celtics were to sign LeBron or Dwight Howard they’re gonna need to hire a new member for the cleaning crew thats dedicated to doing nothing but wiping down the area around Doc. He’d have to stand on a massive puddle of sticky white stuff otherwise. He could get fired. The NBA is a family company
