ORLANDO – Much has been made about whether new Celtics coach Brad Stevens and point guard Rajon Rondo will get along next season, but Stevens tried to make it clear on the day that he was introduced as the 17th coach in Celtics history that he likes Rondo.
“There is no bigger fan of Rajon Rondo than me,” Stevens said.
Stevens later added, “I’m looking forward to sitting down and learning from him.”
Well, the astute Celtics coach made another smart move by heading to Louisville, Rondo’s hometown, to speak at Rondo’s basketball camp there Thursday. Stevens had been with the Celtics for the past few days in Orlando, where their summer league team is playing, but the Celtics were off Thursday. They’ll play their fifth and final game here Friday.
