Rajon Rondo has admitted to considering retirement after his terrible run with the Dallas Mavericks. The Los Angeles Lakers are coming off of a great Playoff run. They were able to pull out the victory against the Miami Heat and brought the NBA title back to Los Angeles. The tandem of LeBron James and Anthony Davis worked out pretty well this year and hopefully they can keep it going.
But this year was difficult for many reasons. First of all, the Lakers had to deal with the loss of Kobe Bryant. This was devastating for the organization and obviously was used as motivation for the rest of the year. But the COVID situation also was hard to deal with. They had to restart in a bubble . LeBron talked about this.
“I am here for one reason and one reason only, and that’s to compete for a championship,” James said. “That was my mindset once I entered the bubble, once I entered the quarantine process the first two days. And then right from my first practice my mindset was to, if I’m going to be here, make the most of it and see what you can do and lock in on what the main thing is. And the main thing was for us to finish the season and compete for a championship.”
Rajon Rondo Admits to Considering Retirement After Terrible Mavs Run
“So that’s just been my mindset throughout these — I don’t even know how many days it is, whatever how many days it is, it feels like five years so it really doesn’t matter. I’ve been as locked in as I’ve ever been in my career.”
But now there is some news on Rajon Rondo. Apparently, he almost retired after an abysmal year with the Dallas Mavericks. Take a look.
“He told me he almost retired a few years ago because when the catastrophe in Dallas happened between him and Rick Carlisle —and we can assign all kinds of blame for that,” Nichols revealed. “He said that only two teams called him that offseason, and that he was sort of thinking, ‘Well maybe I just don’t want to do this anymore.’ He could have been out of basketball.”
Well, it is a good thing he didn’t.
