During the Boston Celtics ignominious exit from the NBA Playoffs this past spring, point guard Rajon Rondo suffered a gruesome injury when he was pulled down by Dwyane Wade during Game 3. The injury, diagnosed as a dislocated elbow, affected the series as Rondo gutted through the remainder of the series but was never really himself again.
While making a public appearance in New York City earlier this week, Rondo proclaimed himself 100% healthy and fully recovered from his injuries and was looking forward to playing basketball this season.
Rondo made the rounds on YouTube this past week thanks to a ridiculous alley oop pass to Denver Nuggets rookie Kenneth Faried during a Kentucky Wildcats alumni event in Lexington.
Rondo has also been keeping busy playing in charity games, working out at home, and getting ready for, we all hope, the upcoming season. There's a good chance that Rondo may need to be the best player on the team if/when the season takes place as this is likely the last go-round for his aging running mates Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce.
