Boston's Got Wings

Although the Bulls trumped Boston the other night, Rondo came up with 5 steals, which put him at 62 for the season. That means another 30-steal milestone in the Boston’s Got Wings Program, where Red Bull has pledged to donate $500 to the city of Boston’s Department of Parks and Recreation for each one of Rondo’s steals this season (every dollar will be used to refurbish basketball courts throughout the city), that's $15,000 per chosen park. After Rajon recorded his first 30 steals this season, money was officially allocated for Malcolm X Playground in the Roxbury area of the city. After that, Red Bull opened up public voting to decide the next court to receive funding. Smith Playground in the Allston/Brighton area was the winner with the most votes at the 60-steal mark. Go to the site to vote for the next court to get refurbished once Rajon has 90 steals for the season HERE
