You Just Won The NBA Championship! What Are You Going To Do Next?

"I'm gonna go blog about it!"
That's exactly what Rajon Rondo did. Rajon posted this on his blog at 2:30am ET:

Hey Yardbarkers, hope U stayed up for this - WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!!!

All the photos, the interviews, the madness in the locker room and it still hasn't really sunk in yet. But I do know we're a part of history. We just added a banner to the rafters!! And it was great to do it in front of all those great champions - Bill Russell, JoJo White, John Havlicek - all the guys who've made so much history. And the fans were rockin again - but that's nothin new - they've been great all year, every night!!

Now we celebrate and I get to share this with all the great players in this locker room - CELTICS ARE CHAMPIONS!! I'll holla

Now, I've never been in the NBA (what? you say? No, no it's true), but I'd imagine if I had just won the NBA Championship my first thought would not be, I gotta blog about this! I would probably be more like, "OH MY GOD! ARE YOU F'ING KIDDING ME! THIS IS RIDICULOUS! Hey Pollard, stop hogging the champagne! Hell, I can't even be mad at you. CHAMPIONS! WOOOOOHHH!!!!!" I also get this image of Rondo typing on a laptop in the locker room while the music from Doogie Howser plays in his head.

Congratulations to Rondo. He was the biggest question mark of this team the entire season. Many questioned whether the young point guard could lead such a talented squad. Well, he did a tremendous job. He was a big factor on defense last night, winding up with six steals. He also had 21 points, 8 assists, and 6 rebounds.
