“Rondo — it’s like he sees the play before it happens.”
— Courtney Lee
Everyone says that. So many say it so often, in fact, that it long ago reached broken-record status. But that trait is central to why Rajon Rondo is a four-time All-Star who has twice led the NBA in assists, many of them starring in nightly highlight reels because they were thrown with impeccable timing from almost impossible angles to almost unimaginable locations.

He just always seems to be several moves ahead of the opposition, as his teammates, such as Lee, will attest.
