But on a team with three NBA All-Stars in Ray Allen, KG, and Paul Pierce, Rondo has a clear understanding of his role and his objectives:
"My goal is to be on the All-Defensive team and win a championship. You can look at box scores, but you actually have to watch games and see matchups to see who really is the defensive stopper . . . But a lot of times they go off steals, but I don't think that's what counts. I try to make plays. I try to get the ball and I think I'm good at doing that. It leads to fast-break points, you get the momentum going, and you get a stop defensively."
