BOSTON- Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo has never been shy about speaking his mind.
His thoughts on the Miami Heat superstars crying in the playoffs for calls or his annual claims of being the best point guard in the NBA are some of the best examples of Rondo speaking his mind and instantly providing both bulletin board material for opponents and becoming a lighting rod for the media.
In a recent interview Rondo again did what the Boston Celtics superstar point guard does best and provided some very controversial answers to some of the larger topics of the NBA off season.
The first comments were directed to the archrival Los Angeles Lakers. When asked about the Lakers, Rondo made it clear that they look good on paper with the additions of Steve Nash and Dwight Howard.
However, Rondo made sure to note the fact that the Lakers have accomplished nothing together yet. In other words Rondo made it clear that the hype surrounding the Lakers is very premature.
Rondo’s most curious comments were directed towards Jeremy Lin and the Houston Rockets. Rondo was asked about the Lin signing and made it clear that he fully expects to give the Houston Rockets and Jeremy Lin a huge beat down when the Rockets come to Boston.
I know Rondo is a competitive guy and all, but Houston provides zero threat and is not a rival thus the pointed remarks make no sense. Perhaps Rondo was a little jealous of the whole “Linsanity” craze and wants the world to know that Lin is not as good as people think he is.
Rondo also of course predicted the Boston Celtics would get over the Miami hump and win the NBA title this season. Rondo feels the team got a lot better with the additions of Jason Terry, Courtney Lee, and a healthy Jeff Green.
This prediction of grandeur should surprise no one with the supremely confident Rondo always feeling like he can carry his team to victory. We shall see how Rondo’s comments shake out during the NBA season.
Remember Go Green Or Go Home!!!!!!!!!
