Celtics brushing off Rondo rumors

There's been plenty of rumors swirling about Rajon Rondo and potential trades - as well as possible trade scenarios for other Celtics players too.

But those things aren't bothering any of the players or Brad Stevens. They're focused on playing basketball and that's it.

"Just try not to worry about it," Avery Bradley said. "I feel like I can speak for everybody. We just worry about winning games. We can't control any of that. All we can control is how we play and the effort we give."

Jeff Green doesn't seem bothered by anything.

"If it's not in front of my face, it don't concern me," Green said. "People want to talk and blog and say whatever they want to say. Let it be said. If something happens, it happens. I could care less."

And Stevens won't get caught up in rumors on the outside or written in newspapers. He knows that if anything is serious, he'll hear from Celtics GM Danny Ainge.

"Until it's validated by somebody on the inside then I would say I don't even pay attention to rumors," Stevens said. "Nothing to me has been discussed. The one thing you can't get caught up in - and I lived this in college - not everything you read has any validity."
