In an interview with The Standard, Rondo said he believes the Celtics will upset the Miami Heat and bring home the Larry O’Brien trophy in the coming seasons:
“I think because we have a talented group of guys… the additions of Courtney Lee, [Jason] Terry and Jeff Green,” Rondo said. ”We have high expectations every year… I think we got a lot better than last year.”
Rondo also addressed other topics including LA’s new super team (they’re only a juggernaut on paper), and Jeremy Lin who he expects to beat “pretty badly” the next time the Celtics face off against the Rockets. I’d expect nothing less from a player nicknamed Swag.
