Garnett: Rondo's potential is limitless

On media day, Kevin Garnett described his relationship with Rajon Rondo -- who he calls "Shorty" -- and it sounds like a friendship that has come a long way.

"When he needs advice on things I give him my perspective," Garnett said. "I take him through a couple scenarios in which I've been through. I think I've been through damn near everything that you can go through in the NBA. So he trusts that."

Garnett explained that Rondo is very similar to him in that he can also be stubborn. But as they've spent more and more time together, they've come to understand each other better.

"When I first got here he was on his own," Garnett said. "He looked at things differently. He was young."

Turner jokes that Celtics will retire his number

Turner jokes that Celtics will retire his number

It’s not the craziest thing someone has said on Twitter, but Evan Turner tweeted Monday that the Celtics should retire his number. 

It was a joke, of course, as the former Celtic was reacting to news that Isaiah Thomas had said he liked the No. 11 and would change his jersey number if so many people in Boston hadn’t already purchased his No. 4 jersey. 

After Turner joked that No. 11 was going to be retired, Thomas joked back that he would wear No. 11 as a tribute to the current Trail Blazer. 

Prior to being traded to Boston, Thomas wore No. 22 for Sacramento and No. 3 for Phoenix.
