There was a point in the season this year that Rondo was a candidate to be waived or bought out. Now, he is arguably the biggest reason why Chicago has won the first two games of the series in Boston.
Rondo had his horrendous experiment in Dallas that ended with him flat-out quitting in the playoffs on the Mavericks. Now, Fred Holberg is letting him run the show in the playoffs and it’s working for the Bulls.
Not only is Rondo producing on the defensive end, but he is back to putting up his all-around numbers like his days in a Celtic uniform.
In Game 1, Rondo recorded 12 points, eight rebounds and six assists with a plus/minus of +4 in the win in Boston. In Game 2, Rondo finished with 11 points, 9 rebounds and 14 assists with a plus/minus of +14 in the win.

For Williams, McGee, and Kidd, the fan base in Dallas probably wishes the best for moving forward in the playoffs. As for Rondo, you can take a guess how the fans feel about that…
