My pick for the season’s first player of the week is the Boston Celtic’s Rajon Rondo. While the Big Three are still an important element of the Celtics’ success, Rondo has undoubtedly become the glue that keeps this team together. With games of 17 and 24 assists in just the first week of the season, Rondo is off to quite a start this year.
Unrelated to his actual on-court performance, I’m giving him bonus consideration for ditching the headband in opposition to the League’s ridiculous new rule, stating that headbands have to be worn right side up. Rondo is finally starting to win over critics, and being widely recognized as one of the top-five PGs in the League. In my opinion, he’s already more like top two, and by the end of the season, there will be no doubt.
I think we’ll be seeing Rondo’s name here frequently this season.
