Rajon Rondo seems to be pretty sick of “Linsanity”
Linsanity completely dominated the headlines for a while last season. You can thank ESPN for all the hype regarding the point guard who turned the ball over just as much as he made a great play.
A lot of opposing players seemed to get sick of the attention that a former bench-warming point guard was getting. Deron Williams was one, who shut everyone up after dropping 38 on Jeremy Lin. Another is Rajon Rondo, who went for 18 points, 17 rebounds, and 20 assists during a regular season win against Jeremy Lin and the Knicks.
Don’t expect Rajon Rondo to lose his edge just because Jeremy Lin is in Houston, either.The Boston point guard has never been one to be afraid to talk, or one to show his confidence. Remember the time he called out the Heat for “crying and complaining” to the referees?
Now, he is talking about Jeremy Lin.
“I hope he has success with the Rockets, except against the Celtics. We plan on beating the Rockets pretty bad this year and hopefully I have something to do with it. But he is going to compete and I wish him well.”
You better believe that Rajon Rondo wants to make another statement and quiet the Linsanity chatter. For someone who holds himself to be one of the elite players in the league, it must have really annoyed Rajon Rondo to see Jeremy Lin get all of the attention for a few good games and a lot of turnovers.
