I'm saddened and shocked. I like Stevens and the coach from VCU, forget the guys name. Wanted them to stick around and turn a tiny school into a big powerhouse, really shakes up the NCAA when a team other than say North Carolina, Arizona, UCLA or Duke is the team to watch out for. Wish this guy the best of luck. Celtics aren't that horrible people, Rondo is still there, Avery Bradley, Gerald Wallace and so forth. The East is weak and the Celtics easily could find themselves in the playoff race for a long time. Granted, they may end up the 8 seed but making the playoffs is better than not making it.
And if they do trade Rondo, they will vault from irrelevant to relevant very fast because he will get them oodles of nice draft picks and young talent.
