Stevens usure of Rondo's return

It's around two weeks until camp gets under way, and the Celtics head coach doesn't know anything about Rondo's return. Rondo's season looks more like a year long training camp. He will have to get back into shape, and he'll need to run a new system. This season is turning into the word patience. Because the Celtics will likely lose a lot of games without Rondo, and those fans who want the Celtics to tank, will get a free pass. The Celtics won't need to tank, because Rondo won't be playing.

"[Rondo] hasn't put a date on [a return], and we haven’t put a date on it," Stevens said before Celtics players and staff led a basketball clinic at Holland Elementary School in Dorchester as part of the Harvard Pilgrim Foundation’s annual community service days. "I told him, whenever he feels best and he’s ready to come back, we’ll support him and we’ll be happy that he’s back. But it hasn’t been a specific date. Literally, I haven’t even asked that question in the past couple of weeks."


Brad also spoke about talks with Rondo.


"My general sense is he's really excited," said Stevens. "He's excited about the challenge of a new season. He's excited about the challenge of a new situation. He seems to be excited. I don't want to speak for him and I don't want to put words in his mouth, but every time we've talked it's been a really engaging conversation."



This is nothing new from Stevens. I like what Stevens says at this part. "I don't want to speak for him and I don't want to put words in his mouth, but every time we've talked it's been a really engaging conversation." I'm glad he's not putting words into Rondo's mouth. It sounds like gravy right now between the two. But it still sucks that Rondo's season is on hold until who knows when.

IT sounds like Stevens and Rondo are barely talking. IT sounds like Rondo is a long way away from returning. It sounds like anything could happen at this point, including a trade. The main thing is that it sounds like Stevens and Rondo are barely in touch. It's not just Rondo's season that is on hold. I'd say his career is definitely on hold at this point.

I agree Paul, Rondo won't be back for camp, and we should have guessed that much. Unless he comes out of nowhere, and we haven't even heard from him for months.

C'slife, you said it well. This is beginning to feel like KG/Shaq 2.0. All the talk about starting the season was bogus, it seems. Only God knows if and when ... as has often been said, this is a bad injury...
