Rajon Rondo: “I want to win another championship”

Rondo’s second day in China was spent mostly speaking with the Chinese media and meeting with Anta executives. Rondo and Doug Bibby, his close friend, mentor & former coach, talked about the upcoming “Control Camp” sponsored by Anta. They held a press conference at Anta’s flagship store in Beijing. Celtics strength & conditioning coach Bryan Doo also attended today’s events.

Hoop China did a brief interview with Rajon after the presser. Here are some of the highlights:

On his main goal with the Celtics..

“I want to win a championship-I want to win another championship….I want to get back to being a contender and compete for a championship.”

On last year’s dismal season:

“It’s part of it you know..you can’t have a great team every year…if you do you’re very fortunate.”

On the Celtics two picks from the 2014 draft:

“They’re very very young….they make me feel old..we’re going to need energy from the young guys & I look forward to playing with those guys.”

Who is the next Rajon Rondo:

“Nobody.”

On which sport he would play if he wasn’t in the NBA:

“Football-American football….quarterback.”

In a separate interview with Sina, which I should have for you tomorrow, Rondo called KG his “brother” & says he “fully supports” him in any decision to play or retire & also says he’s talked to and spent time with Paul Pierce this summer. As soon as I have that interview translated or obtain video, I’ll post it here.

Here is a clip of his discussion with Hoop China, as well as a photo gallery from Tuesday. Thanks to Sina & CFP for the pics.
