[QUOTE]There will be no problem with KG, Pierce, Allen and even JO. This is their last real shot and they know it. My concern in Rondo. He is after all, just a kid. He seems to have been very affected by the trade. He is not hurt, and he is not tired, so it must be attitude. Rondo may not want to turn the switch. Last night on the Celtics show, their were interviews of various players before the play-offs. Last night Rondo stated that " the team was not the same team as last year, and that they could not just throw the switch". That tells me that he does not believe the Celtics can do it. After such a statement, I think Doc will have a short leash on Rondo. I certainly would. I can speculate that he has lost confidence, or that he no longer cares to play for Danny and Doc, or that he no longer buys into this Celtic team. What ever his motivation, it is clear that he is very immature. So lets hope KG helps him find the motivation, or that KG finds a cattle prod, or that West is ready. Otherwise this could be a short play-off season.

You know you got it right, going right to the heart of the matter, Rondo.
Hopefully the days off, the rest, helped him get his head on straight and refocus mentally. He led the team in problems down the stretch and if he decides to play again we have a chance, other wise, not.
J-Kidd said that all the rest he got in the past week was the reason for his good performance last night.
Let's hope it also worked wonders for this entire Celtic team. No Excuses now. Time to play ball.
It makes it kind of interesting and a creates a bit of anxiety going into the playoffs because no one seems to know what kind of performance to expect from the C's.
