Rajon Rondo Bashes Former Kings Teammates: ‘You Couldn’t Name Three People’

 

Rajon Rondo is a one-time NBA champion who spent years in Boston playing alongside future Hall of Famers Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen, and Paul Pierce. Rondo was once considered one of the most dynamic players in the league and the best assist man. The man is a winner.

Since 2014, Rondo has bounced around the league from Dallas to Sacramento to Chicago—where he’s currently in the midst of drama with coaches and the front office. It seems as if he’s fed up… all beginning when he left Boston.

According to Rondo, he feels his time in Sacramento was miserable, despite leading the league in assists.

 

“It’s just, maybe, the personnel in this situation,” Rondo told NBA.com’s David Aldridge. “I mean, last year — I hate to keep talking about last year — but you couldn’t name three people on my team, the Sacramento Kings, and I led the league in assists. You know? I don’t know. I believe so (that his skill set still has value), given the right personnel and the flow of the game.”

 

As he is doing with Chicago, Rondo had worse drama in Sacramento, especially with head coach George Karl who would constantly butt heads with the four-time all-star. Plus, it is extremely disrespectful to DeMarcus Cousins—debatably the best center in the league today and Rudy Gay—a highflying small forward who has averaged upwards of 17.0 points per game in eleven of his twelve seasons. To name a third player… well that’s not too hard. Marco Belinelli, Omri Casspi, and Caron Butler are pretty established players to stay the least. Also, don’t forget back-to-back MVP Stephen Curry’s brother, Seth, who played alongside Rondo as well.

It is obvious people could name three Kings players from the 2015-16 roster; that is not Rondo’s point, though. Rondo is speaking of his overall value as a player and how—with a mediocre lineup—he could make players better with his league leading number of assists.
