rajon rondo

Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo is an Orlando right now as a member of the Eastern conference All-Star team. He was just recently named a replacement for injured Hawks guard Joe Johnson. Here are a few quick words from Rondo with reporters at All-Star weekend:

Question: What have been your impressions of Jeremy 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.

Question:  Sitting here right now, has this kind of been the craziest three days you’ve had in the league?

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.
