Stevens on Rondo's return: up to him

USA TODAY Sports

Before tonight's game against Minnesota, Brad Stevens gave an update on Rajon Rondo's impending return.

We're midway through December and the Celtics' only road game this month is on the 22nd in Indiana.  That should give Rondo plenty of time at Waltham to get his sea legs back and more importantly, his confidence back.  This weekend, he was wowing teammates in practice so hopefully, his swagger will be in full swing in the new year:

Practice: Rondo brings highlights

"Now we have highlights," said Celtics second-year big man Jared Sullinger. "Before we didn't really have a lot of highlights, other than Jeff [Green] dunking or Jordan [Crawford's] spin move. Now we have a little bit more highlights with the ball fake to the up-and-under layups to the Hakeem shake. We got highlights now. It's a lot of fun to do the 'Oooohs' and 'Aaaahhs' in practice."

There's a ridiculous rumor going around that Ainge is packaging Rondo with Gerald Wallace and sending them to the Kings for Isaiah Thomas, Ben McLemore, Marcus Thornton, Jason Thompson, and two first round picks.  I really can't wait until RR comes back, takes this team to another level, and finally shuts down all these rumors once and for all.
