Although, we still don't have a definitive date on Rajon Rondo's return both teammates and fans had to like what they heard from him today.

According to Baxter Holmes at the Boston Globe Rajon had this to say about reintegrating with the team:
"A lot of these guys I haven’t played with, so they don’t know where I am going to throw the ball. They’ve been playing with Jordan [Crawford] and Phil [Pressey], so I don’t want to come back and turn the ball over at a high rate. So just the pickup game I played the other day was good for guys knowing that certain passes they might not think are coming are coming, so I want to continue to get guys rhythm. Guys like [Jared Sullinger], Gerald Wallace back-cutting, Avery [Bradley] back-cutting, I've just got find my personnel and know what we need to do going forward."

What has to have fans and teammates excited is Rondo's eagerness to learn his teammates tendencies and not turn the ball over.

Nothing about his ability to burst to the rim or his own offense and this unselfish attitude is what makes him one of the best point guards in the game.

Hopefully, we re-sign him in 2015 and this pass first mentality attracts some marquee talent role players short term who are eager to chase championships.

Concurrently, improving their numbers so they eventually can get bigger long term deals from other teams.

Similar to what Tim Thomas and others did with Steve Nash during the heyday of the "Run and Fun Suns."
