RAJON RONDO IS THE FIRST PLAYER TO WIN A TITLE for both Boston and Los Angeles

RAJON-RONDO-LA-BOS

Before Lebron James and Rajon Rondo celebrated winning their 2020 NBA Championship, the two were fierce adversaries who seemed to have been a pain in the a** for each other in many post-season runs.

Back then, I'm sure they weren't very friendly towards each other, as the two were both were chasing rings for their respective organizations. Today, however, they are more than teammates. They share a bond that comes with winning an NBA title. A sort of "fellowship of the ring."

And by doing so, Rajon Rondo made NBA history. He became the first player ever to win a title for both the city of Boston and Los Angeles. It is an undeniably impressive feat, considering that the two cities are NBA royalty and share the biggest rivalry in league history.

At the age of twenty-two, Rondo helped the Boston Celtics win their 17th NBA championship. And as of today, he has helped the Los Angeles Lakers win 'ship number seventeen as well, by beating the Miami Heat in a fierce 4-2 series inside the NBA Disney Bubble.

Rajon Rondo

Rondo, a fifteen year NBA vet, has played an instrumental role for the Lakers ever since he joined the team by providing veteran leadership and defensive grit. What stands out most about him is his basketball IQ, something that his teammate, probably Lebron, appreciates the most.

Rajon also secured the sixth spot in Career Playoff Assists this year, and by doing so, has passed NBA legends such as Nash, Bird, Pippen, Bryant, Jordan. There are only five players in league history that have dished out more assists than double R.

He finished the last game of the series with an impressive stat line of 19pts/4ast/4reb/1stl, which helped the Lakers secure the W.

Kudos and congrats Mr. Rondo, truly inspirational!
