Anthony Davis Says Rajon Rondo Will Be ‘Hell Of A Coach’ In The Future

I have a very special appreciation for players like Rajon Rondo. You know, we see players like Stephen Curry make threes from near half court, we see Russell Westbrook flying through the air and murdering the rim, we see Kyrie Irving score points for fun, but we rarely fully appreciate playmakers and floor generals in the NBA. 

I am in no way shape or form saying I don’t enjoy all the rest of the guys that give us highlight after highlight, and their individual greatness is obviously amazing, but there is a very special and exclusive group for players who make others better. It’s not an everyday thing you come across.

If you think about it, individual talent is everywhere. There are thousands of players that can flat out ball, but for me, the players with the unique ability to lift others around them is so rare.

In my opinion, the greatest honor or ability is to make others better within a team sport, where so many pieces have to work cohesively in order to be successful. It’s extraordinary to see a player enabling others to shine and display their full skillset, even when that player may be an inferior talent to them. For me, is it the absolute ultimate in a team environment.

These type of players also tend to be the best coaches once their active careers are over, and it appears that coaching also will be a path in Rajon Rondo’s future.

His former teammate Anthony Davis (Lakers and Pelicans) had the highest praise for Rajon Rondo, and revealed that he believes he can become a great basketball coach, while saying that he actually already is a coach. 


“That’s always been his dream to be a coach… He’s a coach on the floor even when he’s not playing he’s coaching… I can definitely see him being a head coach. I think that’s what he wants to do… He’ll make one hell of a coach.”
