Rajon Rondo says he'll come back when he can dunk off repaired knee

Rajon Rondo knows how to rehab like a badass.

He's going to keep continuously trying to dunk, until it happens. On that day, Celtics fans, he will return to the court.

From our favorite writer Baxter Holmes, THEBostonGlobe:
“Whenever I’m able to jump off my right leg and probably dunk, that’s when I think I’ll be back to play,” Rondo said after the Celtics closed out their preseason Wednesday night with a 101-97 win over the Brooklyn Nets at TD Garden, giving Boston a 2-6 preseason record.

The team could certainly use him. As Holmes notes above they have a pretty poor preseason record.

Of course, it's only preseason, we'll see what this team's really worth when they get into November facing off against teams like Miami, Indiana, San Antonio and Houston.

As for Rondo's "try to dunk" rehab process, Danny Ainge is super proud of him, per ESPNBoston's Chris Forsberg.

"I think [Rondo is] doing great," said Ainge. "I think he’s working as hard as he can. I’ve been very proud of him of how he really wants to get out there and I think he wants to get out there, not for his own benefit, but he wants to really help the team. He sees how he’s missed and he just loves to play. He wants to get back for all the right reasons."

Oh and Ainge was also asked the obligatory question about whether Rondo will stay on the roster, and he surprisingly did not tell reporters that he planned on trading him.
