By the time the 2009-10 season was under way, Rondo was clearly on equal footing with his vaunted "Big Three" teammates. Named to the All-Star team and the NBA All-Defensive First Team for the first time, he led the league with 2.3 steals per game, and pushed the Celtics to the brink of another NBA championship before they lost the finals in seven games to the Lakers.
Rondo topped the NBA with an average of 11.7 assists per game during the 2011-12 regular season,
and was leading the league in that category again when he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee in January 2013. He underwent surgery a few weeks later, with the goal of regaining his place among the NBA's top point guards at the start of the following season.
Rondo remains close to his mother and siblings. He has two children with his fiancée, Ashley Bachelor: daughter Ryelle and son Rajon Jr.
Although considered intensely private, the basketball star has proven to be generous with his time. In 2011, he launched the Rajon Rondo Foundation to provide children living in low-income areas with safe, reliable resources and hope for the future. He also runs an annual summer camp for youth basketball players.
