Rajon Rondo won’t join LeBron James at Miami Heat

Published Add your comment

Rajon Rondo has ruled out the possibility of joining LeBron James at the Miami Heat.

The 27-year-old, who joined the Boston Celtics as their first draft pick (21st overall) in 2006, was speaking to fans who had camped to watch the team at training camp last week.

And, with Ray Allen’s move from Massachusetts to South Beach still fresh in the memory, his response was understandably met with a positive response.

"I will never play for the Miami Heat," said Rondo, according to CSN New England.

Rondo has been linked with a move away from the Celtics this summer, with the Detroit Pistons a team reportedly interested in trading for the point guard, who has two-years left on his current contract.

Staying with the Celtics would appear to be his priority however, whilst all possible bridges to the Heat now appear well and truly burnt.

Rondo has previously accused Miami of ‘crying to referees’, and has far from pleasant history with Wade. Joining the back-to-back NBA Championships is completely out of the question for the four-time all-star.
