One thought on “Celtics Get Win, Rondo Gets Deal

  1. Will I ever be happy when Rondo’s contract extension becomes official! Where in sin do the people who want to to trade him away think we’d find a replacement anywhere near as good?

    Don’t get me started on the ignoramuses who haven’t noticed how much his shooting has improved since his rookie year, or who haven’t learned that shooting is the least important part of a PG’s skill set. I try to avoid using obscenities, OK?
