Rajon Rondo made the cover of Boston Common Magazine and they have a pretty lengthy interview and feature on him. Not sure if the author really knows their basketball as they allude to Ray Allen playing the same position as Rondo on the court, but the article does have some good quotes from Rondo.
People can judge point guards by assessing passing, scoring, defense, and a slew of other things, but Rondo takes it a little further. “My definition of what a good point guard is might be different from what some others might think,” he says. “I’ll give you an example: If [head coach] Doc Rivers gets thrown out, I can run the team for the rest of the game. I know what plays to call, what sets to call, or when to call time outs. It’s more than keeping track of the score. There is so much more going on that you take for granted on any given night, and there are only so many guys who can run a team when you don’t have a coach. In that category I think I am the best at what I do.”
