Rajon Rondo recorded a triple double (32 pts 15 asst 10 rbs) against the top ranked Chicago Bulls on Sunday, leading the Celtics to a 95-91 victory. It’s officially Rondo time in Boston. The Celtics energetic point guard is starting to assert himself as a leader and really take control of the team.
Rondo is responding well after nearly being traded this off-season, a good sign from a notoriously emotional player. The Celtics will need Rondo to be the player he is capable of being (a la Sunday) in the years to come if they are going to have success in the post-big 3 era. If Rondo keeps throwing up triple doubles against number one teams, Celtics fans will be more than happy to have him as the foundation of the franchise.
