Taking his retirement public, the 38-year-old point guard Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson on their ‘All The Smoke’ podcast. In a candid moment, Rondo said his highest goal was to spend more time with his kids, adding that he had earned his fortune; now it’s family time. Perhaps, the unexpected information may not be a shocker because the news that Rondo has not played in the NBA since 2022, but it tells that the era for a 25-year player is over.

During his golden career Rondo turned out his talent to take positions in nine different teams one after another. He was a great player who was a part of Boston Celtics for 9 years. Moreover, he played a key role in winning the 2020 NBA title championship with the Los Angeles Lakers. Rondo was very versatile on the way to the championship and it was perfectly evident in the Finals games where he was a great match perfectly filling in the points from bench of 19 points in his scoreline against Miami Heat.

Not only did Rondo bring many victories for his team but also numerous personal successes that prove that he is among the best basketball players ever. Rondo had for 4 All-Star appearances with 3 seasons of league’s best assists indicated that he was really recognized as the vital part of the Boston team. In his NBA regular season, he has the proven ability of triple-doubles (score 32 in total), and again this proved his uniqueness and matchless skill at the court.

If we look down the road, speculation on what Rondo would be passionate about in times to come, is going to arise with the NBA analyst, LeBron James, who thinks he can have a coaching role. “He has probably to take coaching seriously before, but certainly he is crazy if he does not care about it,” said James in his podcast. Being done with basketball life, the issue of what is to be his next chapter – the matter is still not resolved and it makes big speak in excitement of fans and experts.

We have witnessed the end of a legacy of one of the greatest basketball men. Rondo’s gratitude is not limited only to the concrete floor. Whether his moves from deft passes to his fiber that never gave up, Rondo departs with a legacy that will be honored for years to come. Subsequently, the retired Rondo’s signal is a touching milestone in the ever-evolving NBA sporting arena representing the ephemeral nature of ability and the bulwark strength of family and legacy.
