ESPN Boston's Jackie MacMullan sounds off on Rajon Rondo's latest trip to NBA detention and what it means for Boston's postseason run:

I want him to grow as a man. I set out to get to know him. I didn't listen to any of the other guys and their opinions of Rajon... I love the guy... I've made a friend for a lifetime."
