Celtics Vs. Knicks: Rajon Rondo Unfazed By Mike D'Antoni's Comments

Rajon Rondo isn't a stranger to criticism. The fifth-year guard from Kentucky has received criticism from his general manager [Danny Ainge], his head coach [Doc Rivers] and countless analysts across the league. Mike D'Antoni evidently couldn't avoid getting involved in the mix, as he offered up this little nugget before Game 4 on Sunday.

"He's a very good player. I'd like to see him play in Minnesota and see how he does."

Everyone if certainly entitled to their own way of thinking, so instead of firing back at D'Antoni, Rondo took the high road. Paul Pierce did too.

"I'm not answering that," Pierce said. "Next question." Rondo offered, "Everyone has an opinion."

It's seems rather childish of D'Antoni to be talking trash about Rondo, especially when your team was just swept out of the first round of the playoffs by his. Not only that, but Rondo lit up the floor in all four games, averaging 19 points and 12 assists. Rondo had 30 points in Game 2 and a franchise playoff record 20 assists in Game 3.
