Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo says of the NBA lockout, “It’s just boring,” according to the Kentucky Kernel. Rondo goes on to say that the lockout came as “no shock” to him.

With owners and players unable to come to a mutual agreement on a collective bargaining deal, there have been many reports that players may either feel frustrated or bitter at not being able to play a regular NBA game. However, Rondo continues to stay in shape in hopes the season will resume.

Meanwhile, the 6’1 five-year pro has been actively participating in many charity tournaments put together by NBA stars across the country and will take part in the World All-Star Classic, the six-game, two-week, four-continent tour, featuring almost two dozen other NBA players. Final details and dates for the tour were reportedly finalized earlier today. Rondo, over his career, averages 10.7 points per game and 7.6 assists. He played an integral role in the Boston Celtics’ championship victory over the Los Angeles Lakers in 2008 with 21 points, eight assists and six steals in the decisive game.
