Celtics Nightcap: Ainge upping Rondo's value by saying he'll be ready by opening night?

Posted by shawn cassidy on July 24, 2013 at 10:30 PM

I was cruising some blogs, and I came across this story posted on CelticsFanChat.com.

"If Ainge really wants to tank and believes that he can get a potential Hall-of-Fame player in the upcoming draft then he needs to unload Rajon before the season and this could have been just another step in raising his value. It sounds cold-hearted for Ainge to do something like this but, especially in light of recent trades, we know he is ruthless when it comes to doing what he believes is right for the franchise.

Whatever it means, whether it is just good news about Rajon or an attempt to raise his trade value, we know that Rondo himself wants to be back. He’s one of the most competitive athletes in the league and will push himself as hard as possible to get back in record time."

I would have to question that as well. Danny has said that he's sticking with Rondo, but at the same time, Danny has torn down the walls of this team, and we never know what's in that head of his. Is his quick draw saying Rondo will be back a plan to get buyers? I hope this blogger is wrong, because I'm excited for the Rondo era.

I too hope the blogger is wrong. And I hate the way 'he did it for the good of the franchise' has turned into the GM/Owner version of the players' 'I did it for my family'.

I never even thought of this, could be a possibility. I really hope not though.
