Taj Gibson was singing Rajon Rondo's praises after Friday's win. Less than 24 hours later Rondo gets suspended for conduct detrimental to the team. "He's like a quarterback," Gibson said after Friday's win over the Cavs. "Even though I never really played any contact football -- he always gathers the huddle. He always sees what's going on in the game. He's always encouraging. Like "Come on, let's go. Let's go." He's always pushing it. But he's just a great teammate. I know he got a lot of criticism before the year, a lot of people talk about the negatives that's in him, but he's been showing me nothing but great stuff on and off the court. He's a great player and he's a great leader."
