It’s like they say, it’s not about you, but the team around you! And Rondo’s move back to the “big brothers” of L.A. just proves which team is the real deal. Perhaps after constantly getting into people’s faces last year on the Clippers, even Rondo realises it’s a lost cause!

Apart from his game winning assist against Denver, reports also surfaced that LA’s defensive strategy in the title clincher was designed by Rondo himself! Also possessing a high basketball IQ, floor general Rondo ran the Lakers’ offense without LeBron on the floor, averaging 8.9ppg/6.6apg on 40% shooting from 3.
