Rondo knows that he's hard to coach

New, comments

Honestly, I'm just posting this to break up the non-stop Doc Rivers speculation with something non-draft related.

Hey, Rondo was seen talking in front of cameras today. That's nice.

"I pretty much know what he's going to say. I've been playing for him for seven years, and we've pretty much always been on the same page, especially now," Rondo said from the Red Bull studios in Los Angeles. "Each year we're growing, we're communicating better, learning each other more and more each year." When asked if he was hard to coach, at least early in his career, Rondo said, "I still am. It's not that I'm hard to coach, it's just that I may challenge what you say. I know the game myself, I'm out there playing the game. So I may have saw something different versus what you saw from the sideline. I'm going to be respectable. I'm going to let the coach talk." Rondo also said of Rivers, "I wouldn't rather play for any other coach."

Woops, looks like we slipped in a little Doc Rivers reference there anyway. Sorry.
