He's yet to meet Rondo, but so far so good on what coaches have to say.
Our friends at CelticsSpa -- a Spanish language Celtics fan site -- got another chance to interview new Boston center Vitor Faverani. Hop HERE for a glimpse from the first interview, or HERE for the most recent.
One highlight from the latest interview, which the site has roughly translated to English from a podcast, is from a question posed to Faverani about developing chemistry with point guard Rajon Rondo:
VF: Well, I have not had the opportunity to work with him because he is recovering from his knee injury. I had a first contact, not with the head coach [Brad Stevens] but with his top assistant, who is training me and was with Rondo this week. Every time they talk about Rondo [it] is amazing, spotting his pick-and-roll play. I love setting screens, you can ask my former teammates, because they stopped me last year because it was almost hurting them. So if he is the player I believe he is, we will get along very well. He loves sharing the ball and has incredible passing skills, and I love setting screens to free him, so that he can decide to finish with a shot or a pass. It is up to him.
