Practice Notes: “You’re Being Tricked”
Coach Karl and Rajon Rondo put rumors to rest.
After Wednesday afternoon's practice, Kings.com caught up with Coach Karl and Rajon Rondo for their thoughts on recent reports and more.
On last night's interview:
"He was new and I knew I could have some fun with it…we haven't butt heads at all, I want to make that clear."
On chemistry with team:
"At the end of the day when we go back in the locker room, we're [all] brothers. When we're on the court as a team, we're all for one another. We know each others personalities. Like I said; it's kind of crazy how our chemistry has become so good in this amount of days."
On his bond with Rajon Rondo:
"You're being tricked. Rondo's hilarious. My relationship with Rondo is so good, if it gets better, I'd get scared. Rondo and I are going to have a lot of discussions, but it's never been a problem. We're searching for a better personality, searching for playing better together, searching for who's going to play with each other, yeah, but training camp is a time for figuring things out. It's just pretty amazing…you're being tricked."
On if a decision has been made on starting lineups:
"I would think our starting lineup could be changing many nights, depending on what I want to do at the beginning of the game. I think you're going to see both positions at off-guard and at four could be one guy one night and another [the next]."
On playing Rondo and Collison together:
"I like having two point guards on the court. Right now, if I finished a game, there's a good chance they'd be on the court together."
On Saturday's preseason game in Kentucky:
"I'd like to help the Kentucky guys have a good night. We're playing a team that probably is going to be in competition for that playoff spot we're trying to get."
