On October 6, Beijing time, the famous NBA reporter McMullan recently wrote a long article about Lakers backup point guard Rajon Rondo, which mentioned that when Rondo received knee cruciate ligament surgery in 2013, He once considered whether to continue his career.
In January 2013, when the Celtics lost to the Eagles in double overtime, Rondo tore his knee cruciate ligament without knowing it. After the injury, Rondo continued to play for 12 minutes, and learned of the injury during an examination 2 days later.
"Before the knee cruciate ligament tore, I was a completely different player." Rondo said, "After the injury, I became hesitant. The action I injured was a pass after a jump, which I did on the court. Thousands of such actions, but after that injury, I had to start learning to walk again."
"It broke my mind. I really have to rethink whether I should continue playing."
After 12 months of recovery, Long returned to the game multiple times, but the Celtics in front of him were already completely different. Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce have been traded to the Nets. Doc Rivers has also chosen to coach the Clippers. The Celtics’ new coach is the young Brad Stevens. .
在恢复了12个月之后，Long多次返回比赛，但是在他面前的凯尔特人已经完全不同了。凯文·加内特和保罗·皮尔斯已被交易到篮网。 Doc Rivers还选择执教快船队。凯尔特人队的新教练是年轻的布拉德·史蒂文斯（Brad Stevens）。 。
In December 2014, the Celtics decided to trade Rondo to Dallas.
