Irish Coffee: The 41 best parts of the most revealing Rajon Rondo interview to date

Rajon Rondo [1] doesn’t usually trust the media, which makes the fact he told Sports Illustrated’s Lee Jenkins a reason for that — his father left home in his formative years — all the more fascinating. This Jenkins piece [2] is the definitive Rondo feature, even if most of the reporting took place prior to the Celtics [3] point guard’s season-ending ACL injury. It offers insights we rarely ever see into the enigmatic NBA All-Star. Here are 41 great ones.

Apparently, Rondo declined interviews after his injury, so the one thing that wasn’t addressed is how he will respond to seeing the Celtics succeed in an uptempo style during his absence. But maybe he doesn’t need to answer any of those questions. If this Jenkins piece is any indication, Rondo’s smart enough to adapt.
