Kobe: I’d Love to Have Rondo on the Lakers
Have you ever wondered what Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo would look like wearing a Lakers jersey? Thanks to Celticslife.com, we can somewhat imagine what the look would be. With trade rumors swirling around the entire Celtics team, many are wondering who will end up where.
Kobe Bryant was talking with Jackie MacMullan recently, and had this to say when talking about Rajon Rondo. Letting it be known that Rondo is one of his favorite players.
Per ESPNBoston: “You don’t want Rondo? Send him my way,” Kobe declared. “I love everything about him. Everything. I love his attitude, I love his chippiness, his edge, his intellect, his know-it-allness. All of it. That’s what makes championship players.
“What guard have you seen at his size that will get you 18 assists, 17 boards and 20 points all in one game? That’s unheard of. I love that kid. I always make a point of talking to him during All-Star [weekend]. He’s one of my favorites.”
High praise from Kobe for Rondo, who is an extremely unique player.
And with the injuries piling up for the Lakers, you can’t blame Kobe for imagining what the team would be like with other players.
