LeBron James, the iconic NBA superstar, recently shed light on why his former teammate, Rajon Rondo, hasn’t transitioned into a head coaching role despite his basketball acumen. In a candid discussion on his new podcast with former NBA player JJ Redick, James provided insights into Rondo’s unique situation.

Rondo and LeBron James shared the court during the Los Angeles Lakers’ triumphant 2020 championship run. Their chemistry and basketball IQ were instrumental in securing the title for the Lakers. However, while James continues to dominate as a player, Rondo has taken a different path.

LeBron James acknowledged that Rondo possesses an exceptional understanding of the game. His court vision, decision-making, and ability to orchestrate plays are second to none. Rondo’s 19-year NBA career allowed him to accumulate a wealth of knowledge, making him a valuable asset both on and off the court.

 LeBron James opens up on why  Rajon Rondo does not want to be coach.

So why hasn’t Rondo stepped into a head coaching role? According to LeBron James, it boils down to one specific reason: he doesn’t want to deal with the challenges of coaching. James expressed his bewilderment, stating, “He could do things on the go. It’s very weird to me that he’s not coaching at a high level—I think it’s because he doesn’t want to do it. Who wants to deal with these rich, entitled guys all the time?”

While many former players transition seamlessly into coaching, Rondo appears content with his current path. Perhaps he values the freedom of not being tied to the pressures and bureaucracy that come with a head coaching position. For Rondo, the perfect coaching situation would allow him to build a team without interference from owners or external pressures.
