Rajon Rondo hints at Friday return to Boston Celtics in puzzling tweet
JAN 14, 2014 12:20p ET
Rondo tweeted a set of numbers on his Twitter account after Monday night’s loss to the Houston Rockets.
The math wizards over at CBSSports.com broke the number down: 29,233,380 seconds = 338 days, eight hours and 23 minutes. Rondo had surgery to repair his torn ACL on Feb. 13, 2013, at 11:07 a.m. That date, plus the total number of seconds Rondo tweeted, adds up to Friday at 7:30 p.m. — the exact time the Celtics are set to take on the Los Angeles Lakers at TD Garden.
If Rondo does return Friday, it would be just the right time for a struggling Celtics team that has lost nine of its last 10 games. Rondo reportedly has been targeting the Lakers game for his comeback for a while, but it will be a couple of days before knowing for sure if the Sherlock Holmes detective work pays off.
