Question of the day: Will Rondo Have His Number Retired With The Celtics?

Posted by shawn cassidy on September 20, 2013 at 5:30 AM


This was a debate for awhile in Boston when it came to Paul Pierce. Some said before ,and during the 2008 season that Paul should have his number hanging from the raters someday, and some believed he needed a banner, and after the banner was delivered. It was a matter of when will it happen for Pierce.


Now the question is if Rondo is worthy of the honor. He's got the ring, and he has the numbers for the past 3-4 years or so. Plus he's remarkable playoff runs in 2010 and 2012. I don't think Rondo needs another ring to get receive the honor, of course it would help, and I would love that to happen for him, and for me as a fan.


I believe Rondo needs to be put together another 3-5 year stretch of brilliance, but to be fair about it all. I think Rondo has bigger plans in mind. I believe number nine will be up there someday. Alongside #34 and #5.

I believe it will be up there. And I don't think he'll go for the max contract in two years, because I think he understands better than anyone that it's important to have strong teammates.

Rondo will show us who he is perhaps if he takes less than max. It will be up there with his teammates.

I really can't see him going for the max. EVeryone acts like it's a foregone conclusion, but Rondo knows the value of leaving some for your teammates better than anyone in the game.

I think Rondo won't go down from here, but not max. He's worth it, but I agree. He's smart, and if he wants to win another ring he will go with what he has now.

I think he might go as high as 14 or 15, but he might just stay at 13. I hope he recognizes that KG harmed his own chances for more championships by carving out such a huge chunk of the cap for himself.
