My vets would never go to the media. They would come to the team. My vets didn't pick and choose when they wanted to bring it. They brought it every time they stepped in the gym whether it was practice or a game. They didn't take days off. My vets didn't care about their numbers. My vets played for the team. When we lost, they wouldn't blame us. They took responsibility and got in the gym. They showed the young guys what it meant to work. Even in Boston when we had the best record in the league, if we lost a game, you could hear a pin drop on the bus. They showed us the seriousness of the game. My vets didn't have an influence on the coaching staff. They couldn't change the plan because it didn't work for them. I played under one of the greatest coaches, and he held everyone accountable. It takes 1-15 to win. When you isolate everyone, you can't win consistently. I may be a lot of things, but I'm not a bad teammate. My goal is to pass what I learned along. The young guys work. They show up. They don't deserve blame. If anything is questionable, it's the leadership.
Well this isn't going to go over very well in Chicago, but as a Celtics fan you kind of have to love it right? Rondo is already in the doghouse in Chicago, and the only way for him to get out is to either be traded (very hard to do because of his contract), or bought out. The Bulls are notoriously cheap, so good luck negotiating that, unless of course you cause such a problem that they just waive you to get rid of you. Can't see the Bulls doing that and picking up the full tab on Rondo's contract, but this should get the buy-out talks at least started.
Also note that Ray Allen wasn't pictured in the "my vets" photo. That grudge continues. and Doc gets shown love. Hey don't the Clippers need a point guard with CP3 on the shelf. Lastly, thanks Rajon for attempting to diminish Jimmy Butler's trade value some. We appreciate that. JR 1/26/2017 06:53:00 PM Tweet Edit
