Hey, did you guys know that Rajon Rondo is out for the season and the Celtics have won all of the games they've played since he went down?

They must be better without him right? Four games, all wins, no Rondo. Who needs him?

The Celtics, that's who.

Four games does not a season make but it would appear that's been lost on a couple of prominent Celtics' observers. The fact that the C's were three games under .500 prior to Rondo's season-ending ACL injury is all that folks like Boston.com columnist/98.5 The Sports Hub afternoon drive host Tony Massarotti and longtime Celts' reporter now working for ESPNBoston.com Peter May, have needed to enforce their respective theories that the Celtics are better off without their All-Star point guard.

Massarotti, who either hates Rondo or simply says he does so as to not appear to be in disagreement with his co-host on said afternoon drive show here in Boston, also managed to get in key words like "petulant" and "overrated" in a piece he wrote earlier this week in which he postulates that this team is better off without Rondo.
