All season long LeBron James and Rajon Rondo have made it a habit to sit at the end of the bench away from the team which has led to several former players/coaches to call out the Lakers leadership.
Here is LeBron doing it last month.
And Rondo from a few weeks ago.
Rondo was infamously called out by ESPN broadcaster Mark Jackson in this clip that went viral on Twitter.
“Look where Rondo is sitting. Unless he’s coming into the game, there’s no excuse for that … That can’t happen. For whatever reason, that can’t happen. … That’s unacceptable.”
Knicks legend Clyde Frazier ripped him for “not being a part of the team” and “not caring”.
This type of behavior is not…When you’re the face of the NBA I think you should be more a part of the team no matter what is going on. In the public you gotta be a part of your team. In the locker room you’re not but you have to exude that type of togetherness in public.
