One of the Celtics’ representatives during All-Star Weekend, Rajon Rondo, impressed in his appearance during the Rookie-Sophomore game (Rajon was obviously a member of the sophomores). Rondo started at SG and played 18 minutes and 6 points, 3 rebounds, 6 assists, and 3 steals in the Sophomores’ 136-109 win.
As is with every All-Star game, there was not much defense on the court. Despite that, Rondo played his usually pesky game in getting 3 steals in limited action.
The real star was sophomore guard Daniel Gibson (Cavs) who went 11-20 from 3-pt land to finish with 33 points and an MVP trophy. Cavs teammate LeBron James was jumping up and down during every three he made and often ran up and down the sideline in excitement.
