Rajon Rondo has stated on that the Chicago Bulls has three alphas in him, Dwayne Wade and Jimmy Butler. But the team still belongs to Butler.
The Bulls officially announced the signing of the Point Guard on Thursday, with the details not disclosed. However it is rumoured to be a two-year $28 million contract.
“Jimmy’s the youngest, he’s the engine here,” Rondo told reporters. “It’ll be Jimmy, Wade, and then it will be a pecking order.”
Rondo, 30, said he’s confident he will be able to coexist with Wade, 34, and Butler, 26, in Chicago.
“The main thing is that we have three alphas. There will be three alphas on the team,” Rondo told reporters. “Just trying to mesh together and try to make sure we are doing the best thing for the team.”
He said he learned from watching the Big Three in Boston (Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen) that the key to three stars coexisting on a team is to “sacrifice for one another.”
“Playing in Boston, playing with the Big Three, I was able to see how those guys interacted with one another. Knowing that everything doesn’t have to be perfect in practice,” he said.
“You’re going to disagree, but if you all have one common goal at the end of the day and that’s to get a W, that’s all that matters. Egos go out the window and we all have one common goal.”
