Doc and Rondo intriguing together

The Doc's Still In-Grantland.com

"He won a championship, nearly won another, and now is facing down a rebuilding job not dissimilar to the one he took on in Orlando, when he first started developing his coaching chops. His star is a stubborn, occasionally recalcitrant point guard named Rajon Rondo, and their interpersonal dynamic is one of the most intriguing in the league. It's unlike the relationship between, say, Mike Brown and Kobe Bryant, or between Erik Spoelstra and his two superstars, because the power in the relationship in Boston is far more evenly divided between coach and player, and also because both of these guys are uniquely articulate about what they perceive their relative places in the universe to be. This is the latest thing that has made the now-long career of Doc Rivers worth watching. I don't break many chairs anymore, but I'd be lying if I said I weren't fascinated by what comes next."

The two are still building a relationship. But the trust, and faith that Doc has for Rondo has become stronger year after year. This season will be no different. Doc needs to continue his growth with Rondo, much like he did with Pierce years ago. Rondo will only help you Doc if you allow him. Doc has grown to understand Rondo, and he's learned to backup his point guard in the public eye. when he needs to. Rondo, and Doc's story is one storyline I look forward to this season.

These two have to work closely together if this is going to work, like Red and Russell.

I give Doc a lot of credit. Because Rondo has saved his tail.
