Super insider Anthony Davis joins Los Angeles
David Stein said that he has always appreciated Rondo's leadership and mentality on the court. He said: "I called Rondo the first time I joined the Lakers. I told him clearly that I want him to return to the Lakers. Because I know too well how good I can play with him. He is an excellent leader, I I really appreciate his mentality on the court and his desire for victory."
Davis and Rondo had a very pleasant experience working together with the New Orleans Pelicans. In the 2017-18 season, Rondo briefly joined the Pelicans. At that time, the two core cores of Pelicans Davis and Holiday were convinced by Rondo, the big brother. Rondo, who became the boss of the Pelicans locker room, is also very impressive. Driven by him, Davis and Holiday both made breakthrough progress. In the first round of the playoffs, the Pelicans played a classic battle and easily swept the Portland Trail Blazers 4-0.
Unfortunately, Rondo only stayed at the Pelicans for one season and then left again. Davis switched to the Lakers after the Pelicans could not make a breakthrough. The first thing he did after joining the Lakers was to keep his eldest brother Rondo. At the invitation of Davis, Rondo returned to the Lakers very readily and became an important member of the team.
As Davis said, he always has a better performance next to Rondo. In the final moments of the second game of the Western Conference Finals, Davis fought to become a god, he received the ball at the last minute to complete the three-point buzzer lore. This is the most important goal in Davis's career so far. And it was Rondo who gave him the assist.
