In the first 11 games of the season, Rajon Rondo had 78 points and 73 assists; in the next nine games, he has totaled 125 points and 81 assists.
On November 16, Rondo told the world that his team was tired.
They had just won a championship.
The summer vacation lasted about 30 days.
The team just wasn't up to the task as of yet. I couldn't blame him. As a fan, I was barely ready to start cheering again.
Rondo's game looked like it had regressed. You could even say it had become derailed and gone in the ditch.
I've given Doc credit for helping get Rondo back on track.
But it's time to give Rondo some credit.
The kid we saw in Game 6 of the Finals had no peer. The kid we're seeing now is trying to prove the same thing to every other team in the league.
