Rajon Rondo: Everyone wants to believe Chris Paul is a good guy. They don't know he's a horrible teammate. They don't know how he treats people. Look at what he did last year when he was in LA; trying to get to the Clippers locker room."
Rajon Rondo also said, "I was going to let it rest. I wasn't going to say much. But now I have kids and I teach my kids to speak up for themselves and don't let the world tell their story." From the recent ESPN article.
Can't wait for round 2!
Would love to see a Rockets 1 seed, Lakers 8 seed (or 2-7, 3-6) match up as well.

Why would you wanna play against LeBron in the playoffs?
[–]BullsEzo31202 187 points 8 hours ago
Also with fully motivated playoff Rondo who probably is going to have the Rocket's playbook memorized? Bruh.

I think he’s a good family man and a complete asshole in regards to basketball. Probably the same as rondo lol

Chris Paul would not pull what rondo pulled in Dallas

CP3 wouldn’t have supported and helped the young guys in Chicago.

EXACTLY. CP the type to demand a trade and bash on his team in that situation

Chris Paul is also a much dirtier player. Not to say rondo is clean, but Chris Paul actually tries to hurt people which I think is worse even than quitting on your team.

Rondo is more along the lines of just an asshole

The Rondo vs. CP3 feud in a nutshell
[–]Celticslverson 976 points 11 hours ago
Doc should tell us who the bigger headcase was. Probably Rondo. But Rondo has matured some.....maybe. Well, then again...

Glen Davis comments on instagram:
I played with both of them. CP3 is a very bad teammate
[–]SupersonicsConsultMass 274 points 7 hours ago
I feel like it's pretty clear that Rondo is the type that cares a lot about his teammates, but has a real issue with authority. He clashes a ton with coaches. Just look at the shit he pulled in Dallas.
But he's often described as taking rookies under his wing, standing up for his teammates, and putting in extra hours to help others out.
CP3 just seems like a kiss-ass. He's like the Golden boy cool kid, and he can probably do no wrong in his mind. He's probably the exact type Rondo despises.

Lol CP3 probably expected Glen to not be complete trash and Glen was unable to comply

Pretty much everybody who was on the Lob City era Clippers said nothing was overt. They could just not get the on court chemistry going, where Rondo tried to beam Doc with a water bottle.
[–]Raptorstadallagash 233 points 9 hours ago
He literally JUST spit in someone's face. How can you say he's "mature"? Can you imagine Tim Duncan or Shane Battier spitting in someone's face?
[–][LAL] Eddie JonesNikeNickCee 464 points 11 hours ago
Rondo gone. That's godfather to Lebron's kids
[–][LAL] Didier Ilunga-Mbengahonditar 691 points 11 hours ago
Rondo's not wrong, he's just also an asshole
[–]ClippersSlyHoooper 251 points 10 hours ago
He literally spit in the dude's face to start the fight lol what's wrong with him
[–]Knicksconfuddly 916 points 11 hours ago
CP3 is an asshole but his role in the Locker Room incident was disproven; he was ruled a peacemaker by both the Rockets and Clippers (he was trying to hold back Trevor Ariza).
[–]Jazzjohnstocktonshorts 287 points 10 hours ago
It's largely rumored that ariza was just the fall guy
[–]Raptorskh3lid_24 1420 points 11 hours ago
Rondo saying CP3 is a horrible teammate is rich when he literally played like crap for the mavs, in his last game quit on his teammates and the Mavs got so pissed that made a fake injury up just so they won’t deal with the BS but that’s just me. CP3 vs Rondo part 2 plz
[–]Bullswjbc 372 points 11 hours ago
For what it's worth, many of the Bulls (and Mirotic, a former Bull) consider Rondo a great teammate, mostly for sticking up for them when Wade and Butler were criticizing them, but also for working with them a lot all during the season. Opinions vary.
[–]LakersTrumppered 294 points 11 hours ago
he seems to have had a great relationship with everyone on the Celtics (except Allen) all the Bulls (except Wade/Butler, who by all accounts, were actually huge assholes towards the rest of their team) all the Pelicans, and seems to be really clicking with the kids in LA.
it's weird that Dallas was his only bad-stop, yet no one wants to turn around and question what about Dallas made him so shitty?
[–]RocketsLaladen 169 points 11 hours ago
Doesn’t justify the spitting.
Everyone that spits on other players on purpose should get punched in the face once.
