Rivers: “I think Rajon Rondo will be a lifetime Celtic”

The Boston Celtics [1] have until the end of the month to decide whether to extend Rajon Rondo [2]‘s contract or let the point guard become a restricted free agent next summer. Doc Rivers [3], however, has a strong feeling Rondo will be back … for a while.

On Tuesday he told WEEI’s Dennis & Callahan Show [4]:

“I think Rajon Rondo [5] will be a lifetime Celtic. I really do. I think this process he’€™s gone through is the process all players go through at times. The maturity process is another thing that all players go through. I don’€™t think he’€™s behind in that department at all. I just think he’€™s young and he’€™s growing. So, I never had a black mark against him. For maturity issues, that’€™s part of his process of growing up, and he’€™s doing that. He’€™s been as good as anyone. In camp thus far he’€™s doing everything we ask him to do ‘€” and he usually does. I would be very surprised if he’€™s not a lifetime Celtic.”
