Jordan Crawford says Celtics teammates starting to look at him as leader. Okay then.

The Boston Celtics are Rajon Rondo’s team now.

Well, unless they trade him, but heading into camp this is unquestionably Rondo’s team. However, if he’s not back at the start of the season (we have no timeline) then others may have to step up. There are respected veterans in that locker room such as Brandon Bass, Gerald Wallace, Jeff Green and….

Jordan Crawford?

Well, he thinks his teammates expect him to be.

Okay. It is his second season in Boston, so maybe rookies such as Phil Pressey and Kelly Olynyk I could see. After that…

It’s going to be an interesting season in Boston because they are rebuilding now and there is nobody on that roster safe from being traded. You can bet Danny Ainge is going to try and dangle the expiring contract of Kris Humphries out there, and if he can find a taker for Bass or Wallace or Courtney Lee they will be gone as well.

Maybe by the end Crawford will be the stabilizing influence. I’m not sure I’d bet on that, but it’s going to be an unpredictable season in Boston.

    This is the same kid that said he will be better than MJ… Try securing a job on the teams rotation first…

      In other news, The Post reported that the FBI was investigating a drug dealer supplying crack to a Cs player with an hyper surreal opinion of his game.
