On the actual play that resulted in the season-ending injury:
I jumped up and made a pass, I didn’t hear a pop. I just thought when I came down, that I came down too early. Thought I hyperextended my leg, thought I could play through it and didn’t think it was a season-ending injury.
On what transpired 30 minutes prior to tip-off with the Heat:
I wanted to play against the Heat that day, that Sunday, and I thought I was playing. But until like maybe 30 minutes on the clock, you know, I did my ritual, my routine and I got in the shower and something was telling me this doesn’t feeling right.
On leaving from the MRI and hearing the results on the radio:
So, on a Sunday the hospital was closed, but I went and got an MRI. And on the way back, I heard on the radio, they were like ‘Rondo may have a torn ACL,’ I’m like, ‘How does he know it…we just got the results, there’s no way possible…’ I had just left the hospital and just got the results.
