Two Boston sportswriters with whom it's generally smart not to disagree when it comes to the Celtics:

Bob Ryan and Jackie MacMullen.

Jackie mac said a few days ago on Comcast that Rondo gets it now. She talked to people in the c's organization and they said Rondo wants to fit in better after seeing the little win streak .

So do you believe Ryan who is just stating his opinion , or Jackie Mac who actually talked to people in the organization ?

Or is Bob Ryan just running with what Jackie has reported.

Agreed....when it comes to the history of the 80s Celtics...their opinions now don't carry much weight over anyone else's at all to be quite honest

We'll worry about that next year. Right now, I'm more concerned about what's going on with this current celtics team.

I don't think I've agreed with much of what Bob Ryan has had to say for quite some years now.

None of these comments in here matter because Bob Ryan has been around the NBA and knows more about basketball than any of us here will in our lifetime.

Bob Ryan is overrated, never really liked him.

Jackie Mac is the only Boston writer I lend any credence to.

While I've never been a Ryan fan, he knows the C's as does Jackie Mac.  If you want to know what's going on, listen to them.

Sigh...so his personal opinion on what a player may or may not learn from doesn't have anything to do with how long he's been around the league and certainly doesn't mean his personal opinion will be right....at all.

He's lost it, he may have great insight for the cowens and Bird Celtics but anything he spouts at this point is an opinion of a loopy old guy who didn't like the kg trade

Lol

What do they know about the current Celtics that isn't already readily available?

Sure they're great Celtics historians but like when Ryan had the opinion they'd just barely make the playoffs in 2007 after the kg trade...his opinion on rondo means absolutely nothing

He's right. Rondo needs to grow up. It's discussed year after year, and not much changes. If seeing how much his teammates enjoy playing without him won't, nothing will.

I've also heard rumors that Rondo is a little too stat driven. . .stopping by the scorers table, asking "how many I got?" during games.

  Is the assumption that he doesn't realize that every arena in the league has a scoreboard with those numbers on it?

  He's met more players than any of us probably ever will. If he knows more about basketball than most he does a masterful job of hiding that fact.

Grow up how exactly? Never been in trouble off the court, doesn't throw Russell Westbrook like tantrums, or demand trades and quit like Chris Paul or get coaches fired and make them retire like deron Williams.

He's actually pretty poker faced and boring for his age

 A 7 game sample size without him doesn't all of a sudden disprove the last 3 seasons of constant improvement and being one of the league's best point guards and playoff performers, sorry
