I don't know if Rondo thinks its not as bad as it is, or he's just trying to be positive, but who comes from a torn ACL in two weeks?

It makes you wonder if Rondo knows something we don't..

What do you guys think?
Yeeeaaaa!!!

I think it was a joke. He won't even have his surgery two weeks from now.

Rondo is either A. Being his sarcastic short answer self. Or B. Doesn't have a torn ACL.. I'm going with A. Its just the way he is.

Just being stubborn.

I think part of that will make him recover better than most.  He will work for it. Obviously taking a lot longer than that though.

or C. in a state of denial. judging from pierce's reaction on tv to hearing that rondo's acl was torn, it seems that pierce believes it to be a significant injury.

But another thing, I'm confused how he was walking so regular like nothing was wrong with him at the end of the game. Of all the torn ACL's I've seen the athlete is on crutches or limping..

I guess we'll have to wait and see..

Are we sure it's a complete tear?

Logan Mankins played with a torn ACL for a while.

If it's a partial tear it IS possible.   But long term it's 100% not worth the risk of doing serious damage. 


Either way, there is no way he plays this year.  He's done.  Probably just a joke.  Him being ready to play today and getting it checked last second and saying it was just soreness does make me wonder though.

Don't really know what to say about this.

I mean, the team had no clue at all, until just before game time when Rondo mentioned he thought his hamstring was hurting him.  Rondo doesn't really seem to be limping much either.

Then again, the team doctor apparently could tell just by feeling his knee it was likely torn.

Agreed.

Ainge had mentioned he expects Rondo to get paid 'star money.' On that subject, Rondo said, 'I'm making star money now, really. Its a pretty good living. I'll let my agent handle those terms.'

You have to be good before you can be great. Build a team instead of tearing it down.

To those who think Rondo might be serious, I have to ask: Have you ever listened to a Rondo press conference before?

Or is your sarcasm meter just completely non-functioning?

I've gotta admit, his idea of humor makes me want to slap him.

But on a day like today he's forgiven.

I love it. His sarcasm as dead pan media interviews are classic.

I fully tore my acl and part of my meniscus almost 2 years ago, and I walked around on it for 3 months before I got surgery.
My pic is now, and will be Fab Melo until he posts his first official NBA dbl-dbl. This may be permanent.

No, actually I didn't watch/hear the press conference when Rondo said it. I didn't know he actually said it in a press conference. I heard he denied a press conference. My source was from the CCSNE after the game where Tanguay and Donny Marshall discussed that issue. It was until Max told them he sensed RR was joking that they said they'd never believe anything on twitter again, & laughed.

:) I'm widely aware of RR's sarcasm. That is what I love about watching his press conferences, because he will say something sarcastic, and usually it ends with an inside joke to himself...
Yeeeaaaa!!!
