Like many of the other members on the roster, Rajon Rondo makes a return to the Los Angeles Lakers and looks to secure another title in the storied franchise.

Rondo was instantly linked to the Lakers as soon as his buyout from the Memphis Grizzlies was complete, and the veteran looks to fill the locker room role that was vacated after Jared Dudley moved on to the Dallas Mavericks as an assistant coach. After he signed, Rondo revealed he is motivated to be playing on a championship-caliber team and it is hard to argue that the Lakers are anything less than a contender.

Los Angeles opted not to re-sign Rondo after their 2020 title run, but he talked about how head coach Frank Vogel was instrumental in making sure he felt wanted before returning this summer. “It played a huge role, you know, obviously, everybody wants to be wanted,” Rondo explained. “But having Coach Frank, I talked to him early this morning as far as his expectations for me and understanding that he missed my voice last year in the locker room, which meant a lot kind of saying that I do have value here and wanted to be wanted.

Rondo played at Eastern High School in Middletown, KY. I was a student at Eastern many years before him. Did Eastern have a great or good team while he was there?

Clydeh,

High School Career:
Later on, after Rajon Rondo was sure of playing basketball, he attended Eastern High School in Louisville. He spent three years here. While he was still a junior, he had averaged over 27 points per game. He also led his team to the high school championships, i.e., Louisville Invitation Tournament.

Cat,
He was and is a great player. My wife was watching the Lakers last night (?live or replay) and he does everything in a superior fashion.

Rondo is 35 years old and still playing with the better NBA players.
