Everyone knows Los Angeles Lakers veteran Rajon Rondo is a feisty competitor.

However, in a recent interview with Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson of, Lakers guard Troy Daniels revealed that Rondo often butts heads with teammates.

“Maybe sometimes Kuz (Kyle Kuzma) and Ron (Rondo) will butt heads, or maybe DG (Danny Green) and Ron will butt heads, or maybe AD (Anthony Davis) and somebody will butt heads, but at the end of the day, it all comes back to us being brothers and then we’ll figure it out,” Daniels said. “Which is weird because usually with a team it would drag on. I’ve been on plenty of teams and it’ll drag on for games and you’ll be like man c’mon man let’s get it together…but [here] you will literally snap out of it in the next five or six minutes…”

Rondo, 33, is notorious for causing friction with players and coaches in the past.

After a successful start to his career with the Boston Celtics, Rondo has jumped around the league for the last few years. He has played for six different teams in the last seven seasons.

The journeyman had public issues with respected Dallas Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle in 2015 and infamously called out star teammates Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade with the Chicago Bulls in 2017.

Despite winning a championship with Ray Allen in 2008, Rondo has a bad relationship with the legend and has yet to try to reconcile with him.

However, the story has been different this season with the Lakers. Rondo is contributing to the Lakers success off the bench this year.

The point guard is averaging 7.8 points, 5.3 assists and 3.3 rebounds per game this season.
