 Rajon Rondo Has No Interest in Ever Playing in the Olympics

Two summers ago, Rajon Rondo famously withdrew from USA Basketball. Now, the Boston Celtics’ star point guard says he’d never want to re-join the Olympic hoops program. Per Fox Sports: “Rondo, who is one of the NBA’s top point guards and is averaging a league-best 11.3 a.ssists, wasn’t one of the 20 players selected in January as finalists for Team USA’s 2012 roster in London.And even if another player were to possibly be added, Rondo, 26, said there would be no need to call him. ‘I’m not focusing at all on the Olympics.

At all. At all,’ Rondo said. Rondo, who still would be young enough to play in the Games in 2016 or 2020, then was asked if he ever would have an interest in playing in the Olympics. ‘No, I don’t,’ he said. ‘I just don’t… Wondering why? I love my summers. I’ll leave it at that.’

Rondo didn’t help his standing with USA Basketball when he went overseas as a finalist with the World Championship team in 2010 before soon returning to the U.S. Rondo believes he would have made the team that eventually won gold had he decided not to bolt when the Americans were in Greece before going to the event in Turkey.

‘I decided to leave,’ said Rondo, whose departure was described by USA Basketball as one for family reasons. ‘I was homesick.’ Rondo said he never spoke to USA Basketball officials about possibly being a finalist for the 2012 Olympics. ‘I don’t even know who’s on the list,’ Rondo said.”’

in the Olympics u have to have spacing, due to them zones most of them teams play, Rondo would hurt USA big time with his bad shooting and free throw shooting, tell Rondo THANKS, but NO THANKS

oh yeah so the olympics are about spacing only??

zone or man doesnt matter when you are playing intl ball...rondo is the best facilitator next to CP3 out of those guys...someone like rondo would provide defense first shuttin down any point guard other countries put against us

then he provides opportunites on the FB and in the half court n*gga...

dont disrespect

you don't know what you're talking about. the reason he "quit" the team last time is because he was about to be cut. they have enough defenders and playmakers. they let gilbert do the same thing.

You still need someone who can shoot. I think it was Josh who schooled me on it but while Rondo is the better PG, Westbrick at least can create his own shots & be a bigger threat than Rondo can for the Olympics.

Somebody is going to get cut from Team USA after Wednesday night’s exhibition game against Greece, and Rajon Rondo has no illusions about where he stands. “I
think I’m on the bubble,” Rondo said Tuesday. “Just looking at the
obvious — I got a DNP last game. That pretty much speaks for itself.”


After losing his job as the starting point guard to Derrick Rose
last weekend in Madrid, Rondo’s stock has fallen to the point where it
now appears he is third on the point guard depth chart behind Rose and Russell Westbrook.

…”It’s not so much what Rajon has to show, it’s what our team needs.
We’ve found a good lineup, and the international game is so different
from the NBA game, you can ask any of these guys,” Krzyzewski said.
“Part of it is to make sure that we try not to have two non-shooters
out on the court
, and there’s the physicality, too.”

Henry Abbott @TrueHoop
Team USA sometimes has cover stories for cut players. When they cut Gilbert Arenas years ago, they called him injured
"No joke, I felt like I was the 16th man on a 15-man roster," Arenas said. "You are there to support your team and support your country and be happy to play but you know, I did everything they wanted me to do; but if I did everything they wanted me to do, why am I on the bubble of getting cut? I sacrificed. You've got LeBron being LeBron. You've got Carmelo being Carmelo. You've got D-Wade being D-Wade. Why can't I be me? Why do I have to transform? I did that and now you are going to cut me?"


colangelo stays sh*tting on your favorite players bro

this... if you don't want to play for the olympic team keep that sh*t to yourself, don't come out with a statement looking bitter as hell because they didn't want you on the team and were gonna kick you off the other one. Him even making this statement should be frowned upon.
