SportsNation Blog Archives Rajon Rondo
Boston sports stars came together in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings to try to help their city. Rajon Rondo showed his support in the Celtics' final regular-season game with a unique pair of "Boston Strong" shoes:
Rondo's shoes have the initials of victims of the marathon on them, along with the date of the attack. This might be Rondo's final game in a Celtics uniform, but it's clear the city still holds a special place in his heart.

Rajon Rondo's return
The Celtics are experiencing your typical rebuilding season, but the weakness of the Eastern Conference means they also aren't particularly far out of playoff contention. They could get a boost very soon, as Rajon Rondo will return on Friday night against the Lakers. Rondo tore his ACL about a year ago and is expected to play for about 20 minutes in his debut. And if you believe GM Danny Ainge's assessment, he's looked like his old self in practice. Rondo's name has come up in trade talks from time to time, but Celtics fans will no doubt be happy to see their best player healthy and active again.
