E.S.P.JEN: Boston Celtics' Rajon Rondo Tears ACL, Out For The Rest Of The Season
Rajon Rondo, star point guard for the Celtics has torn the ACL in his right knee and is going to miss the rest of the season. The injury was announced on Sunday after the Celtics’ 100-98 victory over the Miami Heat.
Dwayne Wade and Lebron James weighed in on the situation, Lebron stated "As much as a competitor and as much as I've been a rival with Boston over the years, I never want to see anyone go down. And knowing the competitor that he is and knowing how talented he is, I think it's terrible, not only for their team but for the league."
D. Wade expressed his thoughts on how catching an injury is an unfortunate way to go down, "He's a great player and he really is the leader of this team and, obviously, guys are going to have to step up for them. But this year they lost the leader of their team, so it's tough for the game to lose a player like Rondo, but especially for Boston."
This is a huge loss for The Celtics but a huge advantage for us (NY Knicks).
