Rajon Rondo took to twitter yesterday to subtly announce his return to the Celtics lineup. Rondo’s tweet simply said “29,233,380 secs.” Luckily, Chris Forsberg from ESPN was able to do the math for us.
Rondo’s tweet referencing 29,233,380 seconds equates to a little more than 338 days, which would be exactly the duration between his ACL surgery on Feb. 13, 2013 and a potential return on Jan. 17, 2014. Heck, Rondo appears to have even calculated the exact differential in time between his surgery and tipoff on Friday. (The surgery would have been 11:07 a.m., figuring in Friday’s 7:30 p.m. start.)
Rondo suited up for tonight’s game against the Raptors but did not play.
