Just hours after the Boston Celtics officially traded away Rajon Rondo to the Dallas Mavericks in a five-player deal, the former Celtics’ point guard took to Twitter to reflect on his time in Boston, thank Celtics fans and look forward to his time in Dallas.

Here is the complied text of Rajon Rondo’s message over several tweets.

My time in Boston has meant so much. I’ve grown up with this city, both as a basketball player and person. The love I have for the most loyal and supportive fans is unmatched. My teammates have shown nothing but heart the last couple of seasons. They are some of the hardest working guys I have played with and I wish them the best. I’ve experienced my most successful and challenging years with the Celtics, fans and city. The opportunity to play with guys like Monta, Dirk, Tyson and the young talent of Chandler is exciting. I look forward to building something special in Dallas.

Prior to the trade, Rondo had spent his entire nine-year career as a member of the Celtics, as the team acquired him on a draft night trade in 2006. Rondo was named captain of the team last season.

The four-time All-Star will return to Boston as a member of the opposition on January 2, when the Celtics host the Mavericks on a Friday evening at the TD Garden.
