Maybe it's the fact that Rondo's been away from the game for far too long, or perhaps he's finally tasted that sweet elixir known as the 'Dirty Water.' Either way, the face of the Boston Celtics - both literally and figuratively - addressed a ruckus TD Garden crowd tonight with none other than a grizzly beard strapped around that hairless face.
It's nice to see Rondo having a little fun while he's rehabbing that reconstructed right knee.
However, I have entertained the notion that tonight's shenanigans - although playful and wicked funny for a guy who seldom speaks louder than a mime at Faneuil Hall - was an elaborate scheme to force the hand of Celtics management in sending the 27-year old point guard some place else.
