LEARNING CURVE: In Boston, Gary Dzen noted for "virtually the entire first quarter, it was as if Rondo didn't know he could speak without being prompted by Gorman." That led to Gorman "conducting what was essentially an interview" with Rondo. But as the game went on, Rondo "improved." He offered "honest takes on several plays, just like your buddy would sitting next to you in a bar" (BOSTON.com, 3/31). Gorman said of working with Rondo, "I'd like to do it again, because I thought he did some really good things." In Boston, Mark Murphy notes Rondo "may like to make another appearance too, but apparently has to run the idea through a lot of channels." Rondo said, "Talk to my agent, Danny (Ainge), my GM, my lawyers, coaching staff, but it's a possibility. If the broadcast wants me back on, then we'll see" (BOSTON HERALD, 4/1).
