The most terrific Rajon Rondo quotes that will activate your inner potential
They talked about teamwork. That's all it is. It's about team effort. No particular player trying to outshine each other. Playing unselfishly and believe. Good things will come.
I will never play for the Miami Heat.
I'm a point guard, so I want to see everybody else score and be happy.
I don't necessarily need to score at all. I could be happy with zero points as long as it was a team game and everybody contributed.
Everything happens for a reason; I'm a big believer in that.
Always people have counted me out since I got in the league.
It never made me any difference. I kept myself around positive people, got a great support system and just kept at it.
I could play through anything. But just thinking about I have kids, longevity, I probably would have made more of a conscious effort not to hit the floor, but at the end of the day in the playoffs, you can't play that way. You just have to play and give it your all.
As I grew up, I played in sandals. I played in flip-flops all the time back in the day. That's why I didn't really care about spraining my ankles. When I first started in the NBA, I loved low-cuts. I can play (in them), because I used to grow up playing in flip-flops all the time.
I always try to push myself, even more now because evidently I'm not doing something right. I'm trying to do the little things that count in practice to try and get my job back.

It's a do-or-die thing. This could be (decide) whoever wins the regular-season championship.
I was always about the team, regardless of our relationship wasn't working out or didn't work out.
We're looking forward to the tournament.
We still believe that if we play with effort, we can beat anyone. We just can't have those 2-3-minute lapses.
I just try to keep rebounding the ball as much as I can.
I just go out there and do what needs to be done and don't worry about my stats.
When you lose, nobody likes it and you start turning on each other.
I haven't played defense in a couple years.
Every player, every coach doesn't always see eye to eye.
Can't pick and choose when you're gonna be a leader. If you're gonna be it - gotta do it every day.
Coach showed he believed in me. So I had to believe in myself.
We have to be mentally prepared for every team we play.
If we play a team who has a big name on their chests, then we are going to come out ready. But if we play a team who doesn't have a big name or a star player, we have a hard time coming out ready.
Whatever my team needs - that's what I do.
We just played unselfishly. At times this year, we've played selfish, but today we passed the ball. ... We were just very supportive of each other.

The fans treated me with a lot of respect, and I played as hard as possible every night. I wanted to win. I'm going to always be a competitor.
I don't know, you go through what you go through.
You handle adversity, and I think it made me hungrier.
