Rajon Rondo's Response To Dwyane Wade And Jimmy Butler Was On Point

  • Chicago Bulls guard Dwyane Wade and forward Jimmy Butler walk on the court during the second half of an NBA basketball game against the Atlanta Hawks Wednesday Jan. 25 2017 in Chicago. The Hawks won 119-114

Bulls stars Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade were visibly frustrated in the postgame locker room, as both players called out their teammates through the media - questioning the team's effort, will to win, and overall passion for the game.

Rondo said he "absolutely" felt he needed to defend the younger players after Wade and Butler teed off on the team following a a href (equals)'https://apnews.com/7811f392336943fcaacac747fe2197fe/Schroder-scores-24, -Hawks-end-game-on-19-4-run-to-beat-Bulls'rough loss/a to the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday. In an nearly unprecedented move, Rondo posted a photo of himself, Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce on his Instagram account with stinging words that could be interpreted only as a rebuke of what Wade and Butler did.

"My vets would never go to the media". You're in these situations - these things come up over the course of the year with pretty much every team, with maybe the exception of a few. Some guys want to be in the middle of the pack so they can be liked. It's got to mean that much to you to want to win.

I'm not a Bulls fan specifically, but as a basketball fan living near Chicago I can honestly say that this behavior exhibited by the team's "star" players is unacceptable and unprofessional. Rondo made headlines Thursday when he defended the "young guys" on the Bulls while writing, "If anything is questionable, it's the leadership" in a lengthy post on his Instagram account. "I don't know if it's in the guys in this locker room". But he is developing into one of the game's premier passing bigs, which was on full display in Cleveland.

"I don't know what happened". It's just that things got out that shouldn't have. "People can take it how they want to". They showed the young guys what it meant to work.

Although Rondo's trade value is minimal right now, the Bulls are just going to have to cut bait. "That can't be. I know there's guys over here waiting for their opportunities, but hopefully when they get them, they step and do their job that needs to be done". It's something that we're going to continue to address, continue to get better in all areas. "One thing I loved about this team that was different from the last couple years of my career was that when I got here, the young guys were in the gym". When we lost, they wouldn't blame us. Even more, he's calling out the two best players on the team.

Butler accused his teammates of not playing hard all the time.

After that, Wade showed a serious amount of apathy during Chicago's late collapse against the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday. Rondo took to Instagram throw gasoline on this dumpster fire in Chicago by blasting Wade and Butler.

"My vets didn't have an influence on the coaching staff", Rondo wrote.

Shockingly, a day at the races didn't seem to help the Chicago Bulls. Did Butler and Wade come here as losers? When you express yourself and get everything out, it makes relationships better.

Wade said he viewed these contretemps as an exception to his tenure with the Bulls, holding a player option with the Bulls for next season, as well.
