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.

The photo also provides a glimpse on another first for the C's uniform - a corporate logo. The General Electric logo will be added to the Celtics new Nike uniforms. So far, 12 NBA teams' uniforms will have corporate logos with likely more to follow suit.
