"Hi, I'm Rajon Rondo...
Chances are, you haven't heard of me. I realize it is difficult to keep track of little old me when there are LeBron Jameses, Dwight Howards, Kevin Durants, and Kobe Bryants of the worlds breathing all the air out of ESPN and TNT basketball coverage, but I've just been revitalizing a team of veterans into kicking the shit out of the Eastern Conference..."
i'm not one to boast (especially when i'm only half-right) but i did have the Celtics in this position when the rest of the NBA pundits did not. Rondo is a revelation, that in fairness, i never thought much of when he was attending the university of Kentucky, but after the Celtics won the title a few years back it became apparent that Rondo was becoming an elite point guard. During this years NBA playoffs, after almost single handedly dispatching of the Miami Heat and then burying the Hype in Cleveland with the help of my old friend KG, the Celtics are running over the Orlando magic, looking younger and healthier than they did when they won the title in 2008. In what could be the final run for the likes of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Ray Allen, and newcomer-though experienced Rasheed Wallace, Rondo is making himself into an absolute superstar.
