Rajon Rondo is a professional point guard. Rondo played two years of college basketball for the Kentucky Wildcats before he was drafted 21st overall by the Phoenix Suns in the 2006 NBA draft.
He was subsequently traded to the Celtics. Rondo, a four-time NBA All-Star, has led the league in assists per game three times. He was named to the All-NBA Third Team in 2011–12 and has earned four NBA All-Defensive Team honors, twice on the First Team. During his time in Boston, Rondo helped the Celtics advance to the NBA Finals in 2008 and 2010, winning a championship in 2008 as the team's starting point guard. Rondo has been known as a versatile facilitator in the NBA for a while now, ranking fourth in Celtics history in assists and third in steals. He is also considered a stat-sheet stuffer, ranking 11th in NBA history for triple-doubles with 32 in the regular season, to go with 10 in the playoffs. After 8½ seasons with the Celtics, Rondo bounced around the league for several years before landning with the Los Angeles Lakers in 2018, with whom Rondo won his second NBA title in 2020.
After the season, Rondo joined the Atlanta Hawks, where he stayed for half of a season and was then traded to the Los Angeles Clippers.
