In a bit of a surprise, the Celtics and point guard Rajon Rondo agreed to terms on a 5 year, $55 million extension. The NBA had extended the deadline to come to contract extensions until 6:30 tonight.

Rondo's improved every year he's been in green and white. And while I still don't think he's in the "top 5" of point guards, I think such questions like that are irrelevant. Whether he's in the "top 5" is sports radio fodder, and has nothing to do with winning basketball games.

Rondo is a key element to the Celtics' success, both now and in the future. Pierce, Ray Allen, and KG can't play forever, but Rondo is not only a key cog to the Celtics' current championship hopes. He's the potential center-piece in the c's long-term plans.

  1. It's no wonder people dislike Rondo...;_ylt=AiPgraywPrsXpamAGPnnMGi8vLYF?slug=aw-paulhornets110309&prov=yhoo&type=lgns

  2. That's like earth shattering, stop the presses kind of news; a basketball player with an attitude problem.

  3. It's that attitude problem that made Manning shop him around all summer and then waited until the last possible day to offer him a deal. Supposedly even guys on the Celtics don't really like him. Sure, he is a big talent but he fell ass backwards into a super favorable situation in Boston and he's talking trash to Chris Freaking Paul?!?!?

    I would not feel comfortable if Rondo was the future of my team.
