Baseline Perspective: counting seconds

The Celtics snapped their nine-game losing streak, traded Jordan Crawford and MarShon Brooks, and had point guard Rajon Rondo back in uniform today. Although Rondo did not play, he was on the court and participated during warm ups.

Playing off of Rondo’s tweet yesterday about his return, and figuring we’d need pictures of him for tomorrow’s paper, I thought I’d share what I captured, counting down the seconds to Friday’s game. The time was read off of my camera’s timestamp:


175,520 seconds (until tip off on Friday)
Stretching with Strength and Conditioning Coach Bryan Doo less than an hour before tip off.


175,217 seconds
Looking at his music player before heading off the court.


173,537 seconds

173,488 seconds

172,984 seconds

172,797 seconds
Dishing his rebounds to various teammates.


165,811 seconds
Talking to Gerald Wallace during the game.


164,841 seconds
Watching from the bench. At this particular moment a group of fans behind him began a “Rondo” chant, hoping he would enter the game.


164,575 seconds
Talking to an official during a time out.


163,590 seconds
Applauding as the game comes to an end with a Celtics win.
