Did Rondo tearing his ACL change everything as far as the direction of the franchise? There seems to be plenty of smoke about a riff between Doc and Rondo, after hearing Ian Thomsen's interview from last night on CSNNE - you can't help but wonder if Rondo is going to be the crippling splinter in the Celtic's foot moving forward if he truly is a "problem child."
Was the plan last season to rebuild on the fly by trading Rondo? When he went down with the ACL, did that kill the only realistic trade asset the Celts had that could prolong the Doc/KG/PP era? Remember how devastated Paul seemed to be in that TV interview post-game when he found out Rondo was out for the rest of the year? The conspiracy theorist in me now, wonders if that was actually the moment of his realization that the fuse had just been lit to blow up Doc/KG/PP after the season, and he knew his days wearing green were now numbered.
Wouldn't be surprised if Danny, Doc, KG and PP all were "in" on trading Rondo and knew that Plan B was where we stand now.
