Rajon Rondo Says Situation ‘a test for me’

Rajon Rondo is on his third strike, knowing one misstep, one false move will have him playing in China or have him searching for an assistant coaching job.

“Without a doubt. It’s a test for me,” he calmly said to CSNChicago.com after his one-game reprieve from the dungeon of the bench resulted in a close loss to the Washington Wizards, a game where Rondo acquitted himself well in 27 minutes with 12 points, six assists, four rebounds and three steals.

“It’s a slap in the face. I’m not the first person to get slapped in the face in life,” said Rondo to CSNChicago.com. “I don’t feel any type of way. Either way, when you put away… I don’t make excuses. This is who I work for, and it’s a job.”
