Rajon Rondo hoping Mavericks miss the playoffs
Rajon Rondo has been fairly conciliatory toward the Dallas Mavericks since he departed the organization, but deep down there’s still no love lost there.
If you want proof, just look at Rondo’s comments after his Sacramento Kings dealt a blow to Dallas’s playoff hopes.
“Yeah, I want them to get their plane ticket as soon as we get ours,” Rondo said, via the Associated Press. “So any time we can help, that’s what I try to get these guys (his teammates) to focus on. If we’re not going to make the playoffs then let’s help some of these guys go home with us.”
Rondo has a point. You have to motivate yourself and give yourself something to play for even when you’re out of contention. You just know, though, that he loves the idea of helping knock Dallas out of the running just a little bit more, no matter how many nice things he’s said about them since his acrimonious tenure there.
