07:15 AM ET 10.09 | As he transitions from brash youngster to the spotlight in Boston, Rajon Rondo would admit he'd grown up through the Doc Rivers era. Though he and Rivers had stormy moments, Rondo turned a bit sentimental. "I still catch myself laughing at some of the things he's told certain guys, and now I find myself quoting some of the things that Doc has said to individual guys," Rondo said. "I've learned a lot from Doc. I've tried to study his ways as far as coaching, because I might want to coach someday myself." ... And Rondo continues to insist that all changes considered, he wouldn't want to be anywhere else. "I love it here, the fans are great here, (president of basketball operations) Danny (Ainge) has been straight with me, so why would I want to leave?" he said. "Why would I want out? This is a brand new start for us."

Duh... Boston is the one team that can overpay him when his contract is up....

Great comment by Rondo. That's a class act. There's no need to attack him on this.

Boston should take Asik and something from HOU for Rondo. Asik is still young is a true center.

I agree... I think he's going to let Rondo carry the team and up his own trade value before pawning him off on a team desperate for a PG. I wouldn't be surprised if they pawn him off on the Bobcats for their 1st rounder mid season.

Let's talk to him at the All-Star break. We'll see if his attitude hasn't changed.

it was a good comment, and even if he really does want out.....you never say it.

It's too early to want out.... By December maybe
