"IN RONDO WE TRUST"

Celtics Blog Post New Entry

Introvert leader

Posted by shawn cassidy on May 4, 2012 at 4:00 AM



How do I slip through the defenses that surounds you? How can I get to know you if you never let me through? How do I get close to someone who is so intent on keeping me out? I ask these questions all day long and fear I will never figure them out ? Those are questions I believe are asked of Rondo.

 Rondo is seen in a bright form, clear and concise. The end of a leader, the birth of a true player.  A leader is needed to guide us in many ways.  Not hasty or impetuous through trying days.  A warm heart full of natural  dreams. Rondo has become a relentless force that drives on and on. 


 I feel like Rondo is an inspiring and thoughtful person in many ways. He doesn't bend for the meida, and I love him for that actually. I see Rondo in myself. If I was an NBA player. I would be Rondo. It doesn't matter what Rondo tells us, or what he does for the media. The passion, and love of the game, and the want to win over power any issue. But it doesn't work that way. Rondo has become the kid in school that nobody sits by. Not really. Rondo is adored by his team. Rondo is just protective of his soul. His emotions, and his core being. Why blame him?

To ease our problems and  to enlighten our days.  Rondo won't become an extroverted leader who will lead the way for us, out of darkness , and into a brighter and promising day. In other words there is a genuine response from the perch above. Rondo will lead the Celtics as an introvert. Introverts don’t like to talk? This is not true. Introverts just don’t talk unless they have something to say. They hate small talk. Get an introvert talking about something they are interested in, and they won’t shut up for days.


Shyness has nothing to do with being an Introvert. Introverts are not necessarily afraid of people. What they need is a reason to interact. They don’t interact for the sake of interacting. If you want to talk to an Introvert, just start talking. Don’t worry about being polite. I feel like Rondo doesn't owe us anything, and any player for that matter. Their privacy is what they have. I hate how their is take, and no give with the media. I feel like the media is a little jealous that Rondo's teammates see Rondo open up. Rondo has never been alone. I mean that because he's been with three hall of fame players for his entire career. He's measured by them, and I don't understand  why? The media wants another Pierce. They can't grasp that, and they can't let go of the fact that  Rondo isn't the life of the party. 


Boston Herald

Doc Rivers had told reporters that Rondo thanked his teammates for defeating the Hawks without him and evening the series at 1-1 on Tuesday. But the petulant point guard wasn’t carrying any contrition when he stepped onto the practice court and into the firing squad of pens and microphones and cameras yesterday.

“The end result is all that matters,” Rondo said. “If there had been a different result, it would have been very difficult. But since we won, it felt like we won the series already.”



Rondo has been showing us that winning is the only option, In his mind. Rondo is clever, and he doesn't want to cheapen his bond with his teammates, by telling the media everything. Rondo is as advertised. I think fans, and media want Rondo to be like Paul Pierce, or even Garnett. Rondo to me has a certain cool, and a way about him.


Life is an interesting thing. Containing moments of despair.and others that make you sing. The trick is making joy out of whatever you face. Looking at situations with intentional grace. Life is to be lived to the full extent. Rondo will not sing to the media.Why should he. Just to please us?



Maybe when these distraught feelings come over Rondo, and they seem to worsen. He's  actually growing into a more stable person. It is said that character builds most in difficult situations.Stregthening you even more on your emotional foundation. If you question Rondo's maturity. I think some should look at themselves.


A line from a blogger

"It was classic Rondo, not necessarily being a dick just to be a dick, but, more likely, being a dick to hide his true emotions."


People hold Rondo to standards of maturity, but they can't do themselves?


In final, how come Rondo is treated like Kobe? Is Kobe a true leader? Was Jordan? These guys were hard on teammates, and they both have gotten into fist fights with teammates. The media is just to hard on Rondo.

Rondo is someone who says SOOOOOOOOO much when he just says a little. He's just such a different sort of person from those media types, it seems. They crowd around him, almost literally like a pack of wolves that thinks it's found a wounded stag. They almost want him to fail tonight, it seems. That would be gist for how many more articles? What a story it would be.

I think Jackie Macmullen, the author of the most prominent hit piece this week, had the best comment I've seen about Rondo this week too. She said on WEEI that his personality reminded her of Bird. Of course, she made a big point of stressing that it was ONLY his personality that reminded her of Bird. I think that many of us fans recognize the obvious: that his game also remnds one of Bird.

What Rondo did at that post conference was classic Bird, in a way. He set a massive challenge for himself and for his teammates with some of the loudest understated swagger the league has ever seen.
He just told Jeff Teague that he, Rondo, is the best point guard in the NBA. He's going to have to guard Jeff Teague tonight. He told the Hawks that he considers the series to be already over. You know that every Hawk player, ESPECIALLY JOSH SMITH, went to bed with that comment blazoned into their dreams. He all but told his teammates that he did what he did to kick them in the pants after their dismal first game showing, as someone here suggested a couple of days ago, I believe. Was it celtslifer who suggested this?

This is the kind of swagger that Bird was so famous for. Only bigger. Wow, Rondo. Wow. Man that kid likes to walk on a dagger's edge. If it were anyone else, I'd be cursing him right now. And I have to admit, I am a little worried about him. I worry that he is delusional. That he is dissociated from what he did, and having delusions of grandeur. But I also think that he can walk the walk. Yes, like Bird, he can go out there tonight and shut Jeff Teague down with his defense, while cutting the Hawks to ribbons on the other end, with the help of his teammates.

And they have to show up big time too. It can't be like Sunday night, where it seemed that Rondo was the only one with his head in the game, until too little too late.

His introverted personality is something that I really like and that really fascinate me.
I think that's the personality of a great leader: he can keep things to himself and he speak when it's necessary.

It's beautiful when you say that you see Rondo in yourself. It's great to see something of the person we admire in ourselves. I sometimes observe some of his behaviour and think "I'd do exactly the same" while in a lot of things he is really inspiring to me.

He doesn't want to cheapen the bond he has with his teammates talking about it with the media, and I think it's something absolutely fantastic. He shows that he really care and he keeps private things that are important to him. Not everybody is able to do that and It's a precious carachteristic.

I also loved that during yesterday interview he kind of challenged the media: they attacked him the previous day, and he gave them sharp answers. It looked like a little revenge and I think he kind of enjoyed himself!!

Your looking at a leader who leads by example, and were missing something, or maybe not. Rondo is accepted by his teammates. The key is that.

You know, I didn't get the impression that he was being shitty with them, that he was being a "dick". In fact I got the impression that he was being incredibly nice, considering how these people raked him over the coals over the preceding days. If they listened more, they might understand that a lot is being said in a few words.

You're right, he was actually nice, but I got the impression that he was having fun giving them some answers. I don't even know how to explain what I mean. Like when he said "I'm confused, I don't understand why you guys think that I have to prove somethig" which make me really laugh or when they asked him if he felt he let down his team when he answered "no, you feel I let them down?" (this one I read the transcription, didn't see the interview).
I don't even know how to

That's what I think too. He's got a dry sense of humor that they don't get at all!
