His mother raised all the four children by herself. Rondo showed interest in football initially, but his mother pushed him to play basketball as it would help him forego his skinny body.
Rondo got serious about pursuing basketball and attended Louisville’s Eastern High School. His 3 years over there fetched him a spot in All-State honors and was the 7th Region Player of the year. Rondo then transferred to Virginia Oak Hill Academy for his senior year and broke a record of 303 assists simultaneously averaging a double-double.

Rondo then joined the University of Kentucky where he played against Louisville, South Carolina, and Central Florida, but Kentucky did not make it to the NCAA Tournament finals. However, he set two Kentucky records, for most steals in a single season and for most rebounds in a game. He was qualified for the U.S men’s national basketball team, under-21, and they won the gold medal at the Global games in Texas.
Rondo was soon drafted for the NBA and so he let go of the final two seasons at the University of Kentucky. He was initially drafted for Phoenix Suns and was the 21st overall pick in the 2006 NBA draft. He later was traded to Boston Celtics alongside Brian Grant, for Cleveland Cavaliers as well.
During his time as a rookie player, Rondo played only a supporting role and split time with Delonte West and Sebastian Telfair. His debut in his rookie season did not receive much recognition and a starting position and he appeared only in twenty-five games. It was just midway during the season that he received a spot and more playtime. He was voted to the NBA All-Rookie second team.
