Throughout the year, Rajon Rondo has been keeping a blog over at YardBarker and, while it’s obviously not as mind-blowingly sweet as Kentucky Sports Radio, he’s been doing one heck of a job of posting every few days and even commenting back with fans and other players. So, what goes through the mind of a 22 year-old as he’s about to pilot the hopes and dreams of one of the NBA’s most storied franchises? Well, I’ll let him explain:
“First of all, I just want to give a big THANK YOU to all of the fans out there. It is really nice to read all of your comments and to know that we have soo much support. Without our fans, we would not be where we are. THANK YOU AGAIN.
Now, the NBA FINALS! I can not even express how we all felt after we won Game 6. It was simply an amazing feeling. I was overwhelmed…just crazy happy. It is only my second year in the league, and I’m going to the NBA Finals. I know that the vets like P.J., Ray, Paul, KG, etc were geeked. Knowing that there are only 2 teams left and that we are one of them is hard to grasp. I’m just so glad that we have this opportunity. The Finals start Thursday, so now I’m just relaxing and resting up. Over the next few days, I will be continuing my preparation for the game.
The Detroit series was very tough. The match up for me was extremely tough. Chauncey is one of the premier point guards in the league, and I have a lot of respect for him. With that said, I knew that it was my job to keep him from being explosive. I knew if I played good D on him, then it would affect the rest of the team’s play. I’m glad we were able to wrap up that series in 6 games. I give all the credit to my teammates and my coaches…it seems like we just keep getting better and better.
For now, just keep watch for my Website info…I will be posting it soon. I’ll holla! “
And, as an added bonus for those of you who really get a sports boner from hardcore statistical analysis, here is a mathematical breakdown that says Rajon Rondo is the most underrated player in the NBA. No sign of Tay.
