NBA ALL-STAR WEEKEND


February 24, 2012


Rajon Rondo


ORLANDO, FLORIDA

Q.  What have been your impressions of Lin?
RAJON RONDO:  He's worked hard.  A lot of people doubt him.  I think he's a product of hard work, and now it's paying off.  He seems like a pretty humble guy.  He seems like a good guy.  He's going to be here for a long time.

Q.  Sitting here right now, has this kind of been the craziest three days you've had in the league?
RAJON RONDO:¬† Yeah, it's been jam packed, really, my schedule.¬† I've changed my schedule completely.¬† I didn't expect to be here.¬† I actually found out on my birthday.¬† It was a good birthday present.¬† I had to go back home and pack and I had to try to get a ticket situation going and a hotel room, who was coming, who wasn't coming.¬† But I'm glad I'm here, and this has been the quietest All‑Star I've had as far as people coming in.¬† I've usually had about 20 people come in, but now it's about five or six.

Q.  For the Skills Competition tomorrow night, I know Markieff lives here and Keyon lives in Florida.  Do you expect those guys to come out and support you?
RAJON RONDO:  Yeah, I expect them to be there.

Q.¬† Being a competitive guy and having been to The Finals, what do you think of tying the home‑court advantage to the result of the All‑Star Game?
RAJON RONDO:¬† No, I don't think so.¬† I think it's good the way we have it.¬† You can't base it off the All‑Star Game.

Q.¬† What's the toughest one‑on‑one match‑up in the league right now?
RAJON RONDO:  Just any guard?

Q.¬† Yeah, anyone when you're watching, one‑on‑one.
RAJON RONDO:  Probably Durant.

Q.  Why so?
RAJON RONDO:  He's seven feet tall and moves quickly, and then he can draw the foul, then he shoots again.  He's got a good first step.

Q.  Who's the most clutch guy out there in the league right now?
RAJON RONDO:  I don't know.  I might be biased, but Ray Allen, Paul Pierce.  If you need a guy to create a shot, Paul; if you need a guy to make a shot, Ray.
