Rajon Rondo named 12th best player to build a franchise around by peers
Sports Illustrated recently polled 137 NBA players to determine which player they would select first if they were picking a team from scratch. For some reason the players voted Lebron James number one, even though he didn’t go to Kentucky. Oddly enough, Daniel Orton wasn’t named by any of the players.
University of Kentucky fans (that’s you) might like to know that Rajon Rondo — that incredibly talented point guard who loves to wear zebra blazers — is No. 12, higher than Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook just to name a few.
He might not have showed it during his time at Kentucky, but Rondo has the potential to go down as one of the best point guards in the history of the NBA.
