Archibald is 64, running basketball camps, and happily retired in New York. But when he watches Rondo, he imagines things he never thought he would imagine again.
“I wish I could play now,’’ Archibald said, “because all I would need to do is get open and Rondo would get me the ball and I could score, even with these old legs.’’
That’s how fine Rondo can be.
“They broke the mold when they made him,’’ Archibald said. “You won’t see another one like him in a long time.’’
