Celtics players do a lot of this, and we don’t often point it out, but I wanted to pass along some news of a Celtics player doing some good.
Point guard Rajon Rondo will visit with children at the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (MSPCC) in Jamaica Plain on Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Rondo will speak to the children about his career and will also play basketball with them, according to a press release from the team.
Many other Celtics players are involved in community projects, and we’ll try to pass some more of those along as they come up. As a side note, the Boston area will definitely miss the traded Ryan Gomes, who was a solid citizen both on and off the court in his time here. Danny Ainge has said Gomes was one of the “best people” he’s met in over 25 years of sports, and it’s hard to argue with that assessment.
