The First Weird “Rondo & George Karl” Story is Out

We all knew the Kings would be a Suicide Squad heading into this season, but I don’t know if people thought things would start going down before the season even started.

Yesterday Rondo told Kings’ blog Cowbell Kingdom that his relationship with George Karl, “It’s not going too well.  We got into a couple arguments the last couple days.  Hopefully we continue to talk and get better.”  OUCH.

But I guess it isn’t as bad as it seems.  Karl quickly laughed it off, “You’re being tricked. Rondo is hilarious. My relationship is so good, if it gets better, I’d get scared.”

I don’t know if I ever took Rondo as Jokey McJokeMaker, but apparently the former Cat enjoys displaying a dry sense of humor, “Anyone that knows me, I have a dry sense of humor. I can keep a straight face when I’m joking.”

Well I guess all of that amounts to nothing.  However, there is a moral to the story: Karl knows there will be some fights between the two in the future, and he’s prepared to compromise.  “Rondo and I are going to have a lot of fights, we’re going to have a lot of discussions,” Karl said.  “But it’s never been a problem.”

Good thing there isn’t any drama coming to Lexington this weekend.  It’s gonna be a HUGE weekend and I want the BBN to be left smiling and satisfied.
