Rondo should be able to practice tomorrow. "That's what we hear," said coach Brad Stevens. "He's going to see (team physician Dr. Brian) McKeon again [today] and then we'll have a little bit more information. But every indication is that he should be good to go on Wednesday." Boston Herald

There is one player who makes sense in LA next season: Rajon Rondo. Several rival executives believe the Lakers will make a strong run at Rondo next summer, and it’s easy to see why. Rondo is young (28), plays a critical position and shares the same win-at-all-bleeping-cost attitude as Bryant. The Celtics are rebuilding and have a young playmaker in Marcus Smart, which may limit their desire to hand Rondo max money. Sports Illustrated

The key, Rose said, is that looming decision with Rondo. “I think it’s going to be crucial what happens with Rondo,” Rose said. “They have to turn him into a player [through trade] and/or a few players that are going to be multi All-Stars. Once you’re able to do that and you’re a winner again then people always want to try to play for a winner.” Boston Globe

Rondo finished with 4 points, 8 assists, and 10 rebounds on 2-for-9 shooting in the Celtics’ 104-90 loss to the Houston Rockets at Toyota Center. “I think the effort was there, they just bullied us tonight,” he said. “I don’t think I was rusty. I didn’t shoot the ball well. I didn’t make my normal shots. I turned the ball over more than normal. “There’s going to be games like that. There are going to be games like I played last [Wednesday]. There’s no excuses.” Boston Globe

The Boston Celtics sat together on a plane for nearly four hours Friday afternoon. Apparently that wasn’t enough. Rajon Rondo revealed Saturday morning that he and his teammates gathered together for an important – and lengthy – meal following their long flight to Houston, all with the goal of developing team chemistry. “I think this is where the camaraderie comes together and you become a close team,” Rondo said of road trips. “It wasn’t an official team dinner [Friday], but we went to eat and we had a good team-bonding dinner. It took about three hours. It was a great dinner.” NBA.com

Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo isn’t one to pour compliments on opposing players. He doesn’t tend to watch other teams play basketball either, unless it is to study film. However, San Antonio Spurs point guard Tony Parker grabbed his attention with the way he moved without the ball in the NBA Finals, and now Rondo is incorporating some of Parker’s game into his already stacked arsenal of weapons. “He’s a guy that usually dominates the ball like myself, but in the Finals he got off the ball a lot and he never stopped moving,” Rondo said of Parker. “A guy at that age, not that he’s old, but I think he’s 31 (Ed. Note: Parker is 32), to be able to move with the young guys says a lot.” Basketball Insiders
