Someone finally summed up Rajon Rondo perfectly

This quote, courtesy of Celtics coach Brad Stevens, is the best anyone has ever described Rajon Rondo.

‘€œI knew from the first moment that I talked to him that he was going to be a person that would think not just about what you’€™re doing but why you’€™re doing it, and that’€™s a good thing,” Stevens told ESPN’s Jeff Goodman in their SportsCenter conversation. “This is a great example. When you run a play, there are five guys in five spots, and most basketball players will go to their spot, they’€™ll do what they’€™re supposed to do, but they won’€™t know what the other four spots do, because they don’€™t understand why you’€™re doing it. He gets it all, and it’€™s no different in leading. It’€™s no different in how we’€™re coaching or running the organization. He understands the big picture, and I think it’€™s really important that we continue to share and talk about that, because he’€™s a big part of this.’€

And let’s just say Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge looks at Rondo from a different angle.

“It’s hard to find the perfect situation for everybody,” he told CBSSports.com columnist Ken Berger. “It’s my job to build the Celtics, and Rondo is a big part of that. Will everything be as perfect as he would like it? I don’t believe so, but it’s not perfect for us, either, the fact that he can’t play. I think Rondo is with us. I think he likes a lot of the core guys on our team now, and I think he is optimistic and looking forward to a new chapter.”

Not everyone can capture the enigmatic point guard in words. Actually, nobody quite has. Stevens came closest.
