Rondo for the first time in his career will have a new coach, and a system that fits his style. Having a system is all good, but you need the chemistry to make it work. Rondo has some new teammates, and with the departure of Paul and Kevin. Rondo will need to build a chemistry with Sully and others.
"A lot of these guys I haven’t played with, so they don’t know where I am going to throw the ball. They’ve been playing with Jordan [Crawford] and Phil [Pressey], so I don’t want to come back and turn the ball over at a high rate. So just the pickup game I played the other day was good for guys knowing that certain passes they might not think are coming are coming, so I want to continue to get guys rhythm. Guys like [Jared Sullinger], Gerald Wallace back-cutting, Avery [Bradley] back-cutting, I've just got find my personnel and know what we need to do going forward."
Rondo has been on the bench coaching this team along side Stevens and his coaching staff. Not only has he helped coach, but Rondo has been up front and center studying what his team can do. I do think it will take Rondo long to figure things out.
