Rajon Rondo is taking a lot of heat for a nothing incident with Chris Paul. I mean, the league is even looking into it for some weird reason.
But why? I try to answer that on TruFan.
the league's point guards. And while I love his fire… and I love
that he takes nothing from anyone… it's in his best interests to
channel it a different way. If he truly wants to be an "elite" point
guard… and get all the perks (read: endorsements) that go along with
that… he's got to chill out a little.
Rondo's a young guy who still has a lot to learn. And part of getting
a huge contract like this is becoming more mature and representing your
team, as well as yourself. The Chris Paul incident was not Rondo's
finest hour, but it's also not a big deal. Yet.
Rondo CAN be one of the faces of this league. He CAN be a guy who makes a ton in endorsements. But as long as people have the inclination to take someone else's side rather than his in incidents like this… he won't.
