Default No Surgery for Rondo; Surgery for J. O'Neal

"I was in the back room when Rondo had the dislocated elbow, and he was in an amazing amount of pain," Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said Friday. "I mean, he was trying to get back out on the court now. He didn't want to ice it, he didn't want the X-ray. He said, 'Pop it back, tape it up, let's go.' He was worried about the clock running down in the game and he was in excruciating pain and it was amazing what he was able to accomplish.

"He loves to play. No one can question Rajon and his toughness, and his desire to play."

"Jermaine is sort of the quiet one through this," Ainge said. "Jermaine endured a lot this year, and Jermaine needs some pretty serious surgery on his left wrist, and he played. Jermaine is left-handed. Most people don't know this, but he dunks and finished and drives and does everything with his left hand. He blocks shots -- he was able to do that still with his left hand, but ... his left wrist was seriously hurt, and fractured and he needs surgery, and probably pins put in his wrist. So yeah, our guys wanted it, and I'll never question that."

O'Neal said after Wednesday's loss that he will take time this offseason to evaluate his own future, but the 32-year-old center (with a lot of NBA miles on his tires) remains under contract for one more season at $6.2 million.

O'Neal started using his left hand because he broke his right hand in grade 4. It is going to be a tough life for him as he gets older. I hope he's invested his money wisely.

JO is just a scrub now. If I were him I would just sit at the very end of the bench for next season and bank the remaining 6.2mil then retire.
