Rajon Rondo Says Miami Heat Are Crying [VIDEO]
Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo took a shot at the Miami Heat during his halftime interview with Doris Burke on Sunday night.
Rajon Rondo responded to a question posed by ESPN's Doris Burke openly and honestly. Burke asked Rondo, "What holes are you guys exploiting in this (Miami Heat) defense?" Rondo responded by saying, "Them complaining and crying to the referees in transition."
This isn't as big of a deal as people are making it out to be. Rondo said that the Miami Heat were complaining and crying about a lack of calls. Big deal. These comments aren't going to totally fire up the Heat for Game 5 and the rest of the series. It's not like LeBron is going to stand up in the locker room before Game 5 and say, "Let's get even with Rondo tonight for his halftime comments about us!"
Don't confuse a comment that raises eyebrows with a comment that will have a big impact on the series. When Rondo says that Miami is crying, it definitely gets your attention. When you stop and think about the potential impact those comments will have on the series, there really isn't a big ripple effect. Game 5 is Tuesday night at 8:30pm ET.
