EL SEGUNDO, California – Rondo Rondo has a unique view of the history of Lakers Celtics history, and now the point-keeper is able to make its own mark on the NBA's historic rivalry.
"I need another ring," Rondo said after training on Monday. "It's easy, I want to be the first to win for the two most historic franchises that ever use basketball, so I got one in Boston and I'd like to get one with this organization."
Entering This season, a total of 33 players have played for the Celtics and Lakers – and only Clyde Lovellette has won a title with both teams. However, Lovellette won with the Minneapolis Lakers – which means that Rondo was still the first to win a title at the Lakers, while in Los Angeles and the Celtics, with whom he won the 2008 championship.
Rondo signed a one-year deal with the Lakers in the offseason and he spoke fervently of the franchise a few days before the regular season begins.
Is there a stranger thing than what the Lakers this summer? Is there anyone else in Cleveland? Have we just turned all 30 NBA teams into TV dramas? Yes, yes, we have.
The Lakers draw the most bets to win the title, with the Celtics second.
There is no NBA story the stars of "High Noon" do not address. You will not want to look the other way this season.
"You expect certain teams to do certain franchises [to be like this]," continued Rondo, who plays for his sixth team in his 13th season. "Obviously playing for Boston was probably the best experience I've had since my arrival [been in the league] And now here, obviously all the teams I've played for have great organizations, but none of them."
Ob Rondo may achieve his goal of winning a ring with both iconic franchises, the Point Watcher likes what he has seen so far from this Lakers squad.
"I love what I saw," he said. "We have a few dogs, we have a lot of dogs and we have a lot of young, great talents and we got the best player in the world, we have good chemistry, a good mix and we have to find one." to put it together. "
" I love our young people, our dedication, the way they study the game, their willingness to learn. I told Bron the other day, we were on the plane and I never did. I have not seen in the last four [or] five seasons that many guys have come together in the last four years, I think. It was so refreshing to see. Understanding that this team is committed.
It is not known who will start for the Lakers for the season opener on Thursday at the Portland Trail Blazers, but coach Luke Walton said Rondo and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had started in the backcourt on Monday.
All the signs of this Preseason showed on Rondo, starting with point guard over Lonzo Ball. It is expected that LeBron James, Brandon Ingram and JaVale McGee will be the Lakers' launches in the forecourt.
