    THE Boston Celtics’ Rajon Rondo will be the latest NBA superstar to visit the country.

    The 26-year-old all-time assist leader of the Celtics is coming over for the Red Bull Skills Clinic for elite collegiate basketball players on Tuesday and Wednesday.

    Rondo, a major part of the 2007-08 Celtics team that won the NBA championship, will spend the first day of his short two-day visit teaching top UAAP and NCAA players through an intensive skills development clinic at the third floor of the Ronac Art Center in Ortigas from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.

    The following day, the brilliant point guard out of University of Kentucky visits the San Juan National High School in San Juan from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. to apply the finishing touches to the court refurbishing project sponsored by Red Bull.

    Rondo, who ranks third on the all-time list of NBA playoff triple-doubles made, is currently on an Asian Tour for the Red Bull King of the Rock in Taiwan and Hong Kong.

    A three-time All-Star and two-time All-Defensive First Team member, Rondo is visiting the country for the first time, but will be the second NBA star to come over here in a month’s span after Brooklyn center Brook Lopez.

    Rondo has career playoff averages of 14.5 points, 9.2 assists, and 6.0 rebounds in seven seasons with the Celtics.
