After a lackluster showing during the regular season, Rajon Rondo proved to be a difference-maker for the Los Angeles Lakers during their 2020 championship run. Rondo was key in orchestrating the offense and even showed how effective of a defender he could be.
The veteran point guard made history by becoming just the second player to win a title with the Lakers and Boston Celtics, doing so 12 years apart. Rondo is the first to accomplish the feat with the Celtics and L.A. Lakers.
Rondo won his first championship against the Kobe Bryant-led Lakers in the 2008 NBA Finals and cemented himself as one of the game’s best point guards at the time.
