Rajon Rondo made an appearance at Dwyane Wade’s charity game in Miami on Sunday—the same event where this bizarre thing happened with Wade—and, naturally, the local press asked him about the Heat’s acquisition of Chris Bosh and LeBron James. Rondo was characteriscally brief but made it known that a) he buys the theory that Wade, Bosh and James planned this thing long ago; and b) the C’s aren’t cowering in fear of Miami.
Rajon on whether he expected the Bosh/Wade/James signings (via the Palm Beach Post):
“I’m sure everybody was surprised except for those guys on the team who expected to get them.”
And Rajon on where Miami fits in the NBA landscape:
“As far as the East,” Rondo said, “we’re the champs.”
I like it. I do think Miami enters the season as the favorites to win the East, but I like the attitude.
Hope you all had a good weekend.
