Rajon Rondo says he wants to stay in Boston, considers himself a 'max contract' guy

From Celtics Media Day:

When asked the same question, Danny Ainge laughed and said if he were Rajon or his agent he'd say the same thing, but since he's "negotiating against them" he'll withhold.

Should this really be news?  Probably not, because there was a zero-percent chance Rondo was going to answer either of those questions differently today.  Even if he does want out, this is the right response.  And why would he ever say anything other than he believes he is worth a max contract?

But for Rondo fans, it is encouraging the way he elaborated on the fact that he enjoys being in the city of Boston.
