Rondo has been cleared to shoot again, and soon can rejoin the post-practice shooting competitions. “My [travel] ban has been lifted,” he said Monday. “I’m off of house arrest and I will be traveling with the team on the upcoming schedule.” Rondo’s love of Connect Four, and his savant-like ability playing the game, has been well documented. It fits the mold of a point guard known best for the way he thinks about the game. A great point guard can see a few steps ahead of whatever is happening on the court, and Rondo can do that within a game like Connect Four.
Storyline: Rajon Rondo Injury
Ball — who is averaging 9.5 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.2 assists while shooting 32.7 percent from 3-point range this season — was asked if there is another player he has seen that leads more by example and isn’t as vocal. “Not that I know of,” Ball initially answered. “Every time I played on, I kind of [have] been the leader for it. Obviously Rondo and ‘Bron talk all the time. I don’t know how Kawhi is, but if I had to pick one [player who is quiet and leads by example], I’d probably say him.”

Ainge was well aware of the situation when speaking with the Herald today. “I honestly didn’t think anything of it,” the club’s president of basketball operations said in a phone conversation. “I like Marcus’ and Jaylen’s character and personalities and feistiness, and, like, I just think nothing of something like this. It’s something where those things happen to best friends even. Heck, I remember those things happening to (Rajon) Rondo and Perk (Kendrick Perkins). You know, they’re best buddies, but it’s just the heat of the battle, and I didn’t have a second thought about it.”
Whenever the Los Angeles Lakers get LeBron James and Rajon Rondo back healthy, Kyle Kuzma wants to see the team implement a strategy it hasn’t yet used this season: a “death lineup.” “Honestly think our small-ball unit can be really good,” Kuzma said at shootaround Wednesday ahead of the Lakers’ game against the Detroit Pistons. “I think we can have a death lineup, whether that’s Rondo and Lonzo [Ball] on the floor at the same time and me and [Brandon Ingram] and Bron, or substituting guys.
