Rajon Rondo Reportedly Open-Minded to Brad Stevens Hire

After the Boston Celtics shocked the hoops world by hiring and making a commitment to Brad Stevens, everyone wondered how temperamental star point guard Rajon Rondo would react to the news during such a tumultuous offseason for the C’s. According to the Boston Globe, Rondo is cool with the move. For now, anyhow: “Well a source close to Rondo who has talked with the guard since the Stevens hiring said Rondo is looking at the move with a ‘completely open mind.’ Rondo makes his offseason home in Louisville, Ky., and it’s uncertain when or if Stevens will meet or speak with Rondo before training camp. Stevens is scheduled to be introduced Friday morning at a press conference in Waltham and most certainly will field his share of Rondo questions. ‘They both have a lot to prove,’ the source said of Stevens and Rondo. ‘Might as well do it together.’ Rondo, who has two more years left on his contract, is coming off a torn right anterior cruciate ligament and is expected to be ready for training camp. Stevens signed a six-year, $22 million deal as coach.”

    ““Well a source close to Rondo who has talked with the

    ‘completely open mind.’”

    how close are some of these sources to being snitches or people who will tell someone’s private conversation to the media in exchange for something?

    Ship Rondo and his ego out for another # 1 draft choice, he’s a coach killer

    How is he a coach killer? He’s had one coach his whole career? Him and doc were actually pretty tight. Doc always praised him, saying he’s the smartest player he’s ever coached. And rondo would always say he was a part of doc on the floor. They are both pg’s which caused some friction. But no one can coach a guy that long and not expect a few whiskers to get pulled every now and then. So coach killer? I wouldn’t say so. Doc left on his own accord.

    He’s stubborn and sometimes hard to coach…but he’s only had one coach in the league who left because of a better opportunity with a better team more than anything else.

    It’s not rondos fault doc left. It’s docs. At least rondo is sticking around a while longer. Doc left because his selfish ass wanted to be on a winning team

    Lol what coach career did he exactly kill? I hate when people speak of someone they don’t know in a negative way based on media reports rondo doesn’t even do a lot of press for you to know his temperament.
