Thomsen: Rondo was holding Celtics back

You already know how bad the Celtics were playing before Rajon Rondo was lost for the season with an ACL tear.

And you already know how good the Celtics have played since that injury.

Sports Illustrated's Ian Thomsen joins Damon Amendolara to talk about the C's before and after Rondo, and even goes as far as saying that Rondo was "holding them back" out there on the court.

What does that mean for his trade value, or chances of getting traded by the C's now?

Thomsen discusses that and much more on the Rondo front.

Kevin Garnett reveals what was in his message for Celtics

Kevin Garnett says there’s still “a special place in my heart when it comes to the Celtics,” which was evident by the message he left for the C’s before their first playoff win over the Bulls last week.

On his Area 21 show, with guests Bernard King, Gary Payton and Chris Webber, KG provided a little insight into what his message was.

He said it specifically was for Isaiah Thomas, who has been playing in the wake of his sister Chyna's death in a car crash. 

“His sister is an inspiration. And play for her. He took it and put it on the boom box and it is what it is,” Garnett said. “We all are C’s and that’s what it is."
