My god Rondo keep your pants on! Mind you, this clip comes at the end up the Mavs v. Lakers game last night, just as the Mavs were finishing off their 114-110 victory and ending the Lakers 10-game winning streak. Safe to say they though, Rondo could care less about the loss so long as he had a front row seat to watch Luka put up 27 points, 9 rebounds and 10 assists.
Now obviously Luka entered the season as one of the league’s rising stars after dominating the competition for Rookie of the Year honors last season. But after a red hot November, where he averaged 32.4 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 10.4 assists, the twenty year old has a lot of people fighting for President of the Luka Doncic fan club.
Which I guess should not be shocking considering he’s just the third player in NBA history to average a triple-double for an entire calendar month, Russell Westbrook and Oscar Robertson being the other two. What is surprising though is one of the most fierce competitors in the entire league, Rondo, is vying for that title! And by looking at those eyes in the clip above, I think he may have just earned it!
