After the Los Angeles Lakers advanced to the Western Conference Finals on Saturday night, Los Angeles Lakers guard Rajon Rondo paid tribute to his brother William for his continued support throughout the postseason.
Rajon Rondo told The Unfind, “Ever since I’ve been here, she’s been my rock.” “A lot of inspiration. Lots of inspiration. Top to bottom, he is someone I watch from the stand and get my peace. He would honestly ask me to take it or that I’m doing great. He knows the game. I definitely need him in the building with me. “
Rajon Rondo’s brother became a topic of discussion after being removed from playing facilities for Houston Rockets guard Russell Westbrook. The rejection came after Westbrook took issue with the comments and informed security staff.
Despite the events transpiring at the Lakers’ Game 5 clinic atop the rocket, Rajon Rondo is grateful to his brother for being able to inspire him throughout the series.
“Actually he gave me one hell of a boost in Game 2 against the Rockets,” said Rajon Rondo. “I was tired as hell and I was on [Rockets star] James [Harden] Guarded him in the fourth quarter. He was like, ‘Dig deep. get through it.’ We wanted that I actually told him that he helped get me to fourth place in terms of my fatigue. This was not the time for that. I heard him in the crowd and I was always looking for him at the beginning of the game. “
William Rondo has been able to stay with his brother since the NBA began his return to the court, as his travels and concierge business are being used by the league.
The Lakers will now await the winner of the Los Angeles Clippers-Denver Nuggets playoff series, with Game 7 of that matchup scheduled for Tuesday night.
