Cedric Maxwell


While Cedric Maxwell was breaking down Wizards point guard John Wall's game on Comcast SportsNet's telecast before the Celtics played in Washington, he got a surprise visitor.


OK. There was no LeBron. Still, there was a near triple-double for Rajon Rondo. And a comeback victory over Miami is always a good thing.

Right, Cedric Maxwell?


He disappears in the fourth quarter. He's not the kind of player who can carry a team. The Celtics' Jeff Green has heard the criticism. And you know what? He doesn't care.


Rajon Rondo made a statement in Friday night's win over the Nets. 


In light of Birthday-gate, perhaps the Celtics were a little hasty in naming Rajon Rondo team captain after he returned from knee surgery in January.
