Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo fielded questions from reporters last night after his team dropped a 118-102 decision to the Washington Wizards (44-38), which finally put an end to the Celtics' (25-57) miserable season.

 

Rondo, who mentioned last week that he wants to be a part of the Celtics rebuilding process, said he has been in constant communication with team president Danny Ainge.

 

“Danny Ainge has always been in communication with me,” said Rondo. “[In terms of] what he has planned and what he has in store for this team.”

 

When asked about the Celtics woeful 2013-2014 campaign, Rondo said, “[It’s] motivation for next year, we have a lot to work on and I look forward to next year.”

Rondo continued, “[This is] a good group to play with and a lot of great guys, a lot of young guys just trying to be better.

"Being a leader, I just have to do it more than talking.”

When asked if that means leading more by example both on and off the court, Rondo answered, “Correct.”
