Lakers PG Rajon Rondo says he’s ‘pissed off’ that Kobe Bryant found a way to beat the Celtics in 2010
Rajon Rondo, who’s now part of the Los Angeles Lakers, recently discovered how Kobe Bryant beat them in the 2010 NBA Finals.
As reported by Mike Trudell via NBA.com, the ex-Celtic revealed that prior to sitting for the interview, he found exactly how Bryant beat them in Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals. Rondo was asked how he and LeBron James will co-exist once they’re on the same court as teammates. Rondo went straight to the point but was seemingly distracted by what he discovered earlier:
“Control the game. Control the game. Those are the guys who win. It’s interesting, I just found out something about Kobe, what he did in the 2010 championship Game 7. How he broke the game down and figured out how to beat us. I can’t give you the insight on that, but I just found that out. Like, maybe 45 minutes ago. It kinda pissed me off a little bit. It’s part of it, but it’s craziness. It’s amazing how he thinks the game, and it’s fun to know that.”
Now, Rajon Rondo and Kobe Bryant are on the same side of the floor. Bryant once praised Rondo as one of the finest students of the game who spends hours and hours inside the video room studying the littlest details of the game. Bryant may not be donning his old purple and gold jersey anymore, but he’s a certified Laker for life. Rondo’s victory is as good as his.
