Last night as the Celtics took on the Lakers it was also the return of Rondo from his torn ACL. Kobe hasn’t returned from his knee injury yet but he was on hand to answer some questions. When asked how Rondo would handle the Celtics in rebuilding mode he had this to say:
Kobe on how Rondo will survive the rebuild: “From what I understand he’s an asshole like me, so he’ll manage.”

Rondo was asked to respond to Kobe’s comment. He was flattered by it acknowledging that the two were similar and that Kobe was an a**hole too.
