Rajon Rondo said he didn't hear a "pop" when he tore his ACL and thought he could play through the injury this season.
Rondo said he felt something wasn't right in the knee during his pregame ritual and then went to the hospital to get tests. Incredibly, Rondo said he first heard news of his ACL tear on the radio. "I was like, 'We just got the results, there's no way possible,' " Rondo told ESPN of hearing the reports of the injury on the way back from the hospital. Rondo said he's undergoing an "intense" rehab process and is basically re-learning how to use his leg. He's expected to be ready for training camp next season.
