Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here… highlighting the big storyline. Because there’s nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump.
The Celtics guard was somewhat skeptical about the new lineup of another rival team, the L.A. Lakers, who now feature stars Dwight Howard and Steve Nash alongside Kobe Bryant and Pau Gasol. Rondo said they’ve done nothing yet and it’s all on paper.
The Celtics All-Star also said he expects to beat Jeremy Lin “pretty badly” when Boston meet Lin’s new team, the Houston Rockets, RTHK reports.
Rondo is in Hong Kong for a sponsorship event, and he trained with young players for an hour on Friday morning.
Rajon Rondo speaks the truth. The Lakers haven’t done squat. While the media might jump all over these comments, Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash and Clown Face would probably tell you the same thing.
The comment about beating Jeremy Lin “pretty badly” seems odd. Because the Standard and RTHK are Hong Kong media outlets, I’m willing to bet the comment was misconstrued in translation.
In an interview with Bleacher Report (yes, BR is doing legitimate content) Rondo talks about playing hoops in flip-flops and eating a live eel.
When Clippers guard Jamal Crawford was asked which players have the best handle, he named CP3, Deron Williams, Rondo, Baron Davis and Nash.
