Rajon Rondo receives standing ovation as Cavs blow out Bucks
Who would have ever thought they would see this day? Last night, the Cleveland Cavaliers’ crowd gave Rajon Rondo a standing ovation. Rondo began his career crushing the Cavaliers and their entire fan base, starting when his Celtics upset the Cavs in 2010. That Game 6 ended up being the last game LeBron James would play for Cleveland for four years.
Rajon Rondo became public enemy number one, in Cleveland, as he became the Celtics’ franchise player. Soon, the Celtics fell from contention, as Rondo became a journeyman. The unlikely happened, when Rajon Rondo ended up becoming LeBron James’ teammate. A decade after James left Cleveland, he and Rondo were teammates for the Lakers. Their chemistry helped the Lakers win the 2020 championship.
Because of how well Rajon Rondo played in 2020, LeBron James wanted him back in 2022. However, this season wasn’t the same, as the Lakers struggled. A trade brought Rondo to the already hot Cleveland Cavaliers. Rondo looks like the piece the Cavs were missing, as Jarrett Allen and Collin Sexton are the clear leaders of the team. Last night, the Cavs had a blowout win over Giannis’ Bucks, led by Rondo.
As the game was decided, Rajon Rondo received a standing ovation from the Cavs’ crowd.
