Ex-Celtic Brian Scalabrine joins Lou Merloni on "Sports Sunday" to talk about whether Rajon Rondo has taken over as the leader of the Celtics.

Scalabrine said the Celtics have been Rondo's team since after they won the championship in 2008.

"Paul Pierce will still get the ball in big spots, but he'll get it because Rondo will make sure or Doc Rivers will make sure he does," Scalabrine said.

The former NBA veteran forward said Rondo has an intelligence for the game and the ability to know what is needed for his teammates that is unlike any player he's ever played with.

The Celtics mercurial point guard will get a few MVP votes if he improves his relationship with the media, Scalabrine said.
