The ultimate ‘I’m starting to get worried’ moment: Rondo’s out for season
I gotta confess,
I had two immediate reactions after learning Rondo is out for the season
, one reaction immediately following the other: 1.) Complete shock, as I realized the season
is probably over for the Celts. 2.) Strange calm, as I
thought, "Hmm. This should be interesting."
reaction is obvious. The second reaction is, well … they did beat the Heat last
night, without Rondo, and they have played well this season, without Rondo, and
they had sucked the previous six games, with Rondo, and … I know, I know. I’d rather have Rondo.
Period. But this team has simply been awful most of the season. I think Doc
and Danny had similar mixed reactions, based on what I’ve read and what Reader
No. 1 has flagged. From Reader No. 1: "
probably thought she'd be writing a Ray Allen story today, but takes us there
today for the unexpected backstory
of an unexpected win. Keen to see how
Doc's immediate reaction ('I still like our team') plays against
Danny's ('...I'm worried about that test')."
story. It’s a great behind-the-scenes look at how news of Rondo’s injury spread through TD Garden last night.
