Bulls guard Rajon Rondo spent the first nine seasons of his career with the Celtics, but that hasn’t resulted in him getting a warm return to TD Garden so far.
Rondo was booed by Celtics fans numerous times before and during Game 1 of the playoff series between the two teams, which isn’t much of a surprise, since he left Boston on rocky terms.
Even so, Rondo was a big reason the Celtics were able to win an NBA title, as the young, flashy player complemented the Big 3 — Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett — perfectly.
But now that he’s a member of the Bulls, playing on the other side of the fence, things have changed, and he’ll never get a positive reception in Boston again. Rondo was asked about that subject, and he shared some thoughts. NESN covered the story, and provided the details, so head over there and check it out.
