Tiger Fight, September 30 The NBA officially held a press conference for the finals today. Lakers player Rajon Rondo was interviewed by the media.
Speaking of reaching the finals again after a lapse of ten years, Rondo said: "When I was very young, I had a lot of success. When I entered the league, I was 21 years old. Now I am 34 years old. This is a completely different experience. I know that such an opportunity is not common. I stand on this stage again after ten years. I am full of humility. I told the young people in the team that such an opportunity is not common. Many guys have been pursuing to stand for their entire career. On this stage, we must seize the opportunity."
Recalling the experience of entering the finals with the Celtics in 2010, Rondo said: "The memory is very vague. It was a long time ago. It is obvious that I am looking forward to change, turning over that chapter in life, and writing. A better chapter."
When talking about the difference between being with teammates day and night and past playoff experience, Rondo said: "It is very special, because in such an environment, you have more time to spend time with your teammates and family. Keep up with my teammates. It’s fun to stay together, breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It helps us build chemical reactions. This is a natural process."
At nine o'clock tomorrow morning Beijing time, the Lakers and the Heat's first game in the finals will begin.
