Rondo on cover of Boston Common
Rondo dishes on his place among NBA point guards: “In some areas some guys might be better than me, but overall, if you lay it all out, I think I am the best.”
Rondo on the pressure for the Celtics to succeed: “The Celtics and their fans don’t just want X number of wins and playoffs,” he says. “We all want championships… and the banners prove that.” The pressure seems not to faze him. “For me it’s a good thing. There is a lot more pressure in Boston to win than there is almost anywhere else. I love it. I feed off of it.”
Rondo when asked to name the three best-dressed men in the NBA, and on his sense of style: Without hesitation he answers, “Besides myself? … Some guys will just wear anything,” he says, “but I really care about my appearance.”
Rondo on his all-time style favorites: He leans toward European designers, with Yves Saint Laurent being a favorite, especially for suiting. And he’s a not-so-closeted shoe junkie, harboring somewhere in the neighborhood of 100 pairs, including Lanvin, Louboutin, and John Varvatos.
