Brad Stevens is far more important to the Boston Celtics than Rajon Rondo

With Brad Stevens leading Boston, the Celtics won’t need much luck.

New Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens appeared at Rajon Rondo’s basketball camp in Kentucky on Thursday.

A coaching wizard frequently compared to John Wooden, Stevens signed a six-year contract worth $22 million to lead Boston on July 3.

“There is no bigger fan of Rajon Rondo than me,” said Stevens, 36, a three-time Academic All-America nominee at DePauw University. “I’m looking forward to sitting down and learning from him.”

With Danny Ainge rightfully gutting Boston’s roster, many fans and analysts have wondered what kind of relationship the cunty Rondo and likable Stevens will develop.

Recovering from a torn ACL suffered in January, the 27-year-old Rondo would currently be difficult to trade for solid value.

Hence, the former Wildcat will be an employee at 100 Legends Way this autumn.

A two-time NBA All-Defensive First Team selection who topped the league in assists in 2012 and 2013, Rondo’s style of play should ideally complement Stevens’ teaching philosophy.

However, if the four-time All-Star ever acts like a twat, Ainge needs to immediately ship Rondo out of Beantown.

The youngest man to guide a team to two Final Fours, Stevens has the potential to mature into a legendary Bostonian.

Including Rajon Rondo, “there is no bigger” member of the Boston Celtics than Brad Stevens.
