LeBron James Makes Rajon Rondo Cry During Lakers Media Day (Video)

Rajon Rondo is known as one of the NBA’s preeminent pests. There isn’t much opponents can do to rattle him, but he is plenty good at getting into their heads. Everything about the way he carries himself just screams “not bothered.”

That said – he still has a soft side. And that soft side was on display Tuesday at the Los Angeles Lakers’ media day.

During an interview, Rondo suddenly broke out in tears.

The cause?

He was informed that his teammates, LeBron James and Anthony Davis, really missed him last year when he left the team to pursue opportunities with the Atlanta Hawks and LA Clippers.

The video largely speaks for itself:

Tears aside, Rondo also broached another interesting topic on Tuesday – his infamous beef with rival-turned-teammate Russell Westbrook. It will certainly be interesting to see how that dynamic unfolds.

One way or another, Rondo figures to be a crucial piece of the Lakers’ championship puzzle in 2021-22. In the likeliest scenario he probably won’t be called upon to do serious work until the playoffs commence. But if 2019-20’s title run is any indication, when he hears his number, Rondo will deliver in the way we’ve come to expect from him precisely when it matters most.
