Despite his successful career with the Boston Celtics, Rajon Rondo is looking forward to achieving even more with the franchise. Rondo is hopeful that the Celtic organization will make the proper moves in the off-season and is confident that Danny Ainge will make the team competitive again.
“Hopefully this summer we're going to make some big changes, get the ball rolling and get back to the Finals pretty soon," Rondo said on Good Morning America recently, reports Boston.com. "I know Danny Ainge is doing his job, and I'm going to go out every summer and do my job and get better."
A name that has been linked to the Celtics' off-season plans is all-star big man Kevin Love, who made a surprise visit to Boston and he had been spotted talking with Rondo at Fenway’s EMC Club. Rondo feels if the Celtics are able to get him, they would be a lot better than they are right now.
"I think we'd be a lot better if you add a guy like Kevin. He's a range-shooting 4, he's going to help on the glass -- obviously we haven't been the best on the glass the past couple years. But he'll do a better job in that aspect,” Rondo said, reports ESPN.
After being drafted by the Phoenix Suns and traded to the Boston Celtic’s organization in 2006, Rondo has become the stable of the historic franchise. He was apart of a championship team in 2008 that had Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce on it. He was the floor general during the big three years in Boston, and after each season his role became more valuable. Now he is the only premiere all-star with championship experience on the team.
