Already mired in a season-high losing streak, the Boston Celtics received news today that effectively ends their season:
Rajon Rondo has torn his ACL.
The All-Star point goes ends his season with averages of 13.7 points, 11.1 assists, and 5.6 rebounds per game. He was coming off back-to-back triple-doubles as well.
Barely locked into the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs even before Rondo went down, Boston will now look to the future.
Might they trade Paul Pierce? Kevin Garnett? Both veteran superstars?
Even the most loyal fan must admit: it's time for the Celtics to rebuild.
