The story that seems to be on everyones lips this post season is the emergence of Rajon Rondo. Whether it’s BTI, Gregg Doyel, or Colin Cowherd, no matter the take, he has become the storyline for the series. And it’s time to count LeBron James as one of the people talking.
After watching the former wildcat cut his Cavaliers up for 29 points, 18 boards, and 13 assists in game four, James wants his shot at guarding the speedy point guard. While James didn’t come out and demand to draw Rondo’s assignment, he did tell the press that he “Would love to,” and “It’s something we maybe should explore because Rondo is definitely dominating this series at the point guard position. For me, I don’t have a problem taking Rondo or guarding Rondo throughout the course of the game. If the coaching staff or the guys want me to do it, I will.” In other words, “Let me guard him, or I’m going to New York before the playoffs are over.”
I’m not a Celtics fan, nor am I a Cleveland fan. I am a Rajon and a LeBron fan, though, so let’s make this match up happen. As far as I see it, it’s a win win. Except for the team that loses. Oh, and LeBron? Wear a cup.
