Sucks their sucky season is going to suck even more that Rondo is out, though.
Not necessarily. Could actually be a blessing in disguise. Rondo is a wizard, and capable of sublime performances, but that's not the whole story.

First of all, they've won their biggest games this season (Knicks, Heat) without Rondo, and arguably play with more heart in his absence. They've lost talent, but it doesn't seem far-fetched to feel that they've gained cohesion.

Secondly, it's possible that the rehab time will lead to reflection and self-examination on Rondo's part, and that he will emerge from it a better teammate. I don't expect him to become a great leader of men, but if he could just lose some of his petulance, it could make a significant difference. We've seen PP grow through the years; it would be nice to see this in Rondo as well.
