Brian Kamenetzky: “Do you think you were hard to coach earlier in your career?”
RR: “I still am. It’s not that I’m hard to coach; it’s just that I may challenge what you say. I know the game myself. I’m out there playing, so I may have seen something different versus what you saw from the sidelines. I’m going to be respectable. I’m going to let the coach talk. Me and Doc talk all the time; it’s just different dialogue. We’ve built to that relationship, and I’ve been fortunate to play for Doc for seven years. If I have any questions, he’s pretty much got all the answers. And if he doesn’t, he’s always honest with me. I wouldn’t rather play for any other coach.”
Rajon Rondo talked coachability, Connect Four and alegbra as part of a new Red Bull promotional video interview.
I’ve battered Rajon many times over the years for his difficult personality, but after watching the Celtics struggle mightily against the New York Knicks in the playoffs, it’s obvious this team NEEDS him on the court, warts and all.
