Rondo Takes Responsibility

"I take full responsibility."

It has been a long season and lesser teams and lesser men would take the opportunity to point fingers and tear teammates down. But not Rondo and despite whispers of his "attitude" being an issue, I wouldn't expect anything else from him. He's trying to be a leader here and take responsibility where he can. So hats off to him.

"I can do a lot more," Rondo said. "I hold myself to a high standard really, and I’m not pleased with the way our team’s been playing. So I think I can do a better job of maybe being vocal and speaking up as far as things we need to get done — not necessarily trying to take over Doc (Rivers)’s job. Just being the point guard, I’ve been here for six years. He knows what it takes for us to win, and think I do, as well, so I think I’ve got to be more vocal as far as going into Doc’s office and trying to figure out some things that we can do to try to get some wins."

Rondo is having his best scoring season (14.8 points per game), and his skills appear to have taken a definitive step forward. But, he said, "It doesn’t matter at all if you don’t win. I’m not satisfied with where we are. I’m not satisfied with where I am. I want to continue to get better for my team, and I really believe we’ll do better before the end of the year.

"I take full responsibility. No one person can do everything, but for me being the leader and the point guard of the team, I think I’ve got to do a better job as far as just finding a way to win."
