Default Cassell: I'm Rondo's Backup

Well at least for now Sam knows and hopefully understands his role with the Celts. Worse thing that can happen to Boston is for there to be any tension or controversy between Rondo and himself.

Hmm .... now that I think of it, start rockin' the boat Sam.

"Because I don't want his job. I am here to make his job easier. And that's what I told him: 'I'm going to push you, I'm going to prepare you for how it's going to be for the postseason.' But so far, so good. He's ready," he added.
