Between the roster moves and the bonding that has gone on already, Rajon Rondo is optimistic about the team's chances this year.
“I think it’s our best shot,” Rondo said. “Not to discredit the 2008 (championship) team that we had, but if this team buys into the system and listens to (coach) Doc (Rivers), the sky is the limit. The championship could be ours. Not a lot of teams can say they can compete for a championship each year, and definitely this year with the talent we have, that’s our one goal.”
“I think these last four or five days we’ve been able to bond and it’s translated on the court in terms of chemistry,” he said. “We’re moving the ball better than we ever have the past couple of years I’ve been here. We’re very unselfish, not just offensively but defensively. We try to help one another and it’s translated on the court.”
