Dwyane Wade recently called out Rajon Rondo and said that he made a “punk play” on him during the season opener between the Heat and Celtics. Well, today at practice Rajon Rondo took his turn to fire back at Wade and essentially labeled him a dirty player.
“I mean, I don’t think it was a hard foul,” said Rondo. “[Wade] sold it a little bit. That’s basketball. They were up, he drove to the hole, I didn’t want to give up a layup. Simple as that. I didn’t yank him down, or dirty plays that you’ve seen him play in the past. So that’s what it is.”
Rondo was referring to the 2011 playoffs when Wade took him down during a play which ended up in a dislocated elbow.
