When Kobe Bryant’s Lakers faced Rajon Rondo’s Celtics on Friday, Kobe took the chance to compliment Rondo…with a certain Mamba twist.
On how Rondo would survive the rebuild in Boston, Kobe responded:
Kobe on how Rondo will survive the rebuild: "From what I understand he's an asshole like me, so he'll manage."

Rondo, who was named team captain upon his return to action last night, said he was flattered by Bryant’s sentiment.
“That’s a great compliment coming from Kobe,” Rondo said. “I feel the same way about him.”
