Rajon Rondo wonders why Isaiah Thomas deserves tribute from Celtics

Rajon Rondo

Well, we know where Rajon Rondo stands on the debate about the Isaiah Thomas video tribute.

Rondo, who is now with the New Orleans Pelicans, was in Boston on Tuesday night to face his former team. After his Pelicans beat the Celtics 116-113 in overtime, Rondo talked about the Thomas/Paul Pierce controversy.

Earlier this month, Pierce said he did not want the Celtics to play a video tribute to Thomas when he returns to Boston as a member of the Cavaliers because it would attract from Pierce’s jersey retirement day. Thomas acquiesced Tuesday and said he wanted it to be all about Pierce.

Rondo wants to know why Thomas is being honored by the Celtics at all.

Rondo isn’t exactly the warmest-hearted person, so his strong feelings should not come as a surprise. He should be reminded that Thomas is just getting a video tribute thanking him for what he did for the Celtics, not a jersey retirement or banner. What Thomas accomplished in Boston is certainly worthy of that, just as long as it’s not on Paul Pierce’s day.
