Rondo: ‘Everyone has an opinion’

NEW YORK — Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo responded to a jab he took from Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni before today’s game.

“I’d like to see him play in Minnesota and see how he does,” D’Antoni said earlier today.

Rondo’s response after the game was brief. “Everyone has an opinion,” he said.

Sitting next to Rondo, Paul Pierce refused to answer the question directly but defended his point guard.

“Tonight you see me and Ray [Allen] didn’t shoot the ball particularly well. Rondo was rebounding, scoring, and getting assists. That shows you how important he is to our team.”
