Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo appeared on WEEI’s “Mut and Merloni” midday program on Thursday (click HERE to listen) and spent much of the interview discussing the competitive nature that he and Kevin Garnett share.
Asked if he hates rivals like the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat, Rondo admitted he’s not in this business to make friends.
“Hate’s a strong word, but I agree with my teammate,” Rondo said when asked about Jason Terry’s comments about disliking rivals. “We don’t like anyone. It’s our job to go out there and win. We’re not trying to be friends with anybody, I think KG shows it best. He plays with a lot of intensity. He has no friends out there on the court, and that’s our mentality.
