Who is Rajon Rondo?

Rajon Rondo is an American professional basketball player who led the Boston Celtics to the NBA championship in 2008. He began his professional career with the Boston Celtics, playing as the team’s third-string point guard. Though initially he was criticized by his coach for his stubbornness, he eventually proved his worth and performed well enough to make the NBA All-Rookie Second Team. He became very popular and much sought-after following the Celtics’ win in the 2008 NBA championship. Now counted among the star players of his team, he continued displaying his on-field brilliance over the following years to make the Celtics one of the most formidable teams in NBA. Rondo’s interest in sports stems from his childhood. Initially he was more interested in football and baseball, eventually shifting his focus to basketball while he was studying in the Eastern High School.

After joining the University of Kentucky, he led his college team to several victories and set a Kentucky record for most steals in single-season.

Childhood & Early Life

Rajon Rondo was born on 22 February 1986, in Louisville, Kentucky to Amber Rondo and William Sr. He has three siblings. His father left the family when Rajon was just seven years old, leaving his mother to fend for herself and the children. His mother, a very determined woman, toiled hard to raise the children single-handedly.

He was a skinny child though he developed an interest in playing a variety of sports like football, baseball, and basketball.

He went to the Eastern High School for three years and during this time he became serious about basketball. He proved to be a great asset to his school’s team and earned a spot on the All-State honors and was named the 7th Region Player of the Year.

He then transferred to Virginia's Oak Hill Academy for his senior year where he broke Jeff McInnis's single-season school record of 303 assists, while averaging a double-double.

After completing his high school education he enrolled at the University of Kentucky. There he, along with team mates Joe Crawford and Randolph Morris, played a major role in the college team’s several victories. He finished his freshman year at Kentucky averaging 8.1 points, 2.9 rebounds, 3.5 assists and 2.6 steals.

Rondo was also named to the 2005 USA Men's Under-21 World Championship Team, and helped the team win a gold medal at the Global Games held in Texas in late July.

Career

Rajon Rondo was drafted by the Phoenix Suns in the 2006 NBA draft and traded to the Boston Celtics. He was the first point guard to be chosen in the draft.

He started out playing a supporting role during the initial phase of his career.

He made his playoff debut on 20 April 2008 against the Atlanta Hawks and finished the game with 15 points, 9 assists and 2 steals. The same year, he gave strong performances in the NBA championship finals in which the Celtics faced the Los Angeles Lakers. In Game 6, he posted a playoffs career-high 6 steals as the Celtics defeated the Lakers 4–2.

During the 2008–09 NBA season, Rajon Rando recorded his first career triple-double along with a career-high in assists (16 points, 13 rebounds and 17 assists), while playing against the Indiana Pacers.

After injuries interfered with his game in the 2010–11 season, he returned with a vengeance the following season to score 18 points, 17 rebounds, and 20 assists against the Knicks in March 2012. He scored a career high of 44 points, 10 assists, and 8 rebounds in a playoff game in the Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals in this season.
