It’s no secret that the Boston Celtics are not a very good basketball team. You know it, I know it, and Rajon Rondo most certainly knows it. Last night, Rondo watched helplessly as the Celtics got trampled by the Rockets, a game that they trailed 40-18 after the first quarter.
At the beginning of the second quarter, the four-time NBA All-Star who has yet to suit up for a game this season while recovering from last season’s torn ACL, was caught on camera looking over the first quarter stat sheet.
After seeing a laundry list of depressing statistics that included the Celtics shooting 24.1% from the field, while allowing the Rockets to shoot a blistering 80%, Rondo appeared to have a moment of clarity. “Wow. This team is terrible.”
“Wait. Oh my god. MY team is terrible.”
