“Everyone wants to do it for themselves, but we need to do it for the team. At times, including myself, guys wanted to do it for the team themselves. Everyone wanted to do it ourselves. To sort of explain it, say we are down seven, I may try to take a guy one-on-one myself.”

As Rondo mentioned, it’s when the offense breaks down a little bit that Rondo ends up looking for his own shot.
