Rondo Key to Boston's "C-Green 18th Championship Machine" 2K11
Rajon Rondo the Boston Celtics point guard by all accounts is the league MVP so far for the 2010-11 NBA season. Wednesday night in a win vs. the NBA record-leading San Antonio Spurs (29-6) he became just the 4th NBA player (Magic Johnson, Jamaal Tinsley, Fat Lever) since 1988 to register a 10-10-20 (points, rebounds, and assists) triple double.
Rajon had 12 points, 10 rebounds, 22 assists, and 6 steals and proved he was the best player on the court for the Celtics.
Boston playing without its emotional leader Kevin Garnett survived a late 4th quarter push by San Antonio and defeated the Spurs 105-103. Garnett has a strained calf muscle injury.
The Celtics vs. Spurs match-up was a meeting between the two teams with the best NBA record this season. These two teams will face each other one more time during the regular-season. It may also have been an NBA Finals preview for June.
Rondo is the key to Boston's "C-Green Championship Machine." If the Celtics are to win a record 18th NBA Championship their hopes will begin and end with Rajon Rondo running the show.
He proved his importance in 2008 when they dominated the Los Angeles Lakers. He showed his importance even more last-season when they took the Lakers 7-games but came up short of winning that 18th Championship.
When the Celtics and Heat face each other in the Eastern Conference Finals it will be the play of Rajon Rondo that determines the outcome of the series. If he averages 12 points, 14 assists, 7 rebounds, and 3 steals for the Celtics they will beat Miami in 6 games.
Rondo is second among guards (929,781) to Dwyane Wade in voting for the 2011 NBA All-Star Game.
Rajon will be on the cover of Slam Magazine for their March 2K12 edition that will be released next week. He talks about things on-and-off the court and being a championship unit
“I don’t think you have to have great camaraderie to win a championship but it helps a lot to get along," Rondo said. "You don’t have to do these things but we go out to eat together, we go to the mall together, just little things we do off the court. Every different city we go places together. We play cards together, we don’t gamble though, we just do fun things on the plane. We all understand each other and we come from similar backgrounds. Its like being with your brothers.” Rajon Rondo
The media hype to his MVP campaign is a machine that's getting gassed up for a long trip to June for that historic 18th Celtics Championship banner.
