Rajon Rondo is one of the most elite point guards in this league, and he is a proven winner. Rondo's playmaking and leadership on the court have helped many teams thrive. He is a two-time champion, having won a championship with both the Los Angeles Lakers and the Boston Celtics. Those teams are longtime rivals, and Rondo is one of the two players who has won a title with both teams. Now, Rajon Rondo is on the Clippers, and has the opportunity to potentially win another championship.
Recently, the Instagram page Courtseat has shared a graphic that suggested that Rajon Rondo has the potential to become an "ultimate villain" figure in the NBA.
Rajon Rondo managed to win with both the Lakers and the Celtics: those teams have a long documented rivalry. The Clippers are the cross-town rivals of the Lakers: if Rajon Rondo helps them win their first championship, then he will have helped 3 teams win, all of which are linked by rivalries. He would definitely be the first person to achieve the feat of winning with the Celtics, Lakers, and Clippers. One would have to wonder, how the Lakers' faithful would react to Rajon Rondo winning a championship with their rivals.
Rajon Rondo has the opportunity to make history if he helps lead the Los Angeles Clippers to a championship. Most fans will appreciate Rondo's achievement, but there are some fans that would feel disgruntled about a player winning a championship with their rivals. Rajon Rondo hasn't won anything yet this season, and now all we can do is wait and see whether he can get the Clippers over the hump.
