Brooklyn Nets’ big man Kevin Garnett certainly enjoyed playing with Boston Celtics’ point guard Rajon Rondo and is happy he has returned to the court.
“It’s always good to see your little brother, man,” Garnett told Tim Bontemps of The New York Post. “I worry about his health. I know he wants to play. I know he wants to help that team. I try to keep an eye out for the young boys [in Boston], just to see how they’re doing.
Rondo returned to action Friday against the Los Angeles Lakers and also played on Sunday night against the Orlando Magic.
In 40 total minutes, he’s averaged 7.0 points, 4.0 assists and 4.0 rebounds per game.
“That’s my little brother,” Garnett said. “I love Rondo. He knows that, and I would do anything for him. All in all, I’m just happy that he’s back, and I’m just happy he’s able to be healthy and continue to be able to do one of the things he does best.”
On Sunday evening, the two will meet on the court as opponents for the first time when the Celtics host the Nets.
