Rajon Rondo Comments on Bulls’ Commitment, Work Ethic and More

Through 28 games of the 2016-17 NBA season, the Chicago Bulls are 14-14 and currently sitting in a tie for the No. 6 spot in the Eastern Conference. 

For a roster that includes star guards in Jimmy Butler alongside veterans Dwyane Wade and Rajon Rondo, it's an underwhelming start considering the lack of strength in the East. 

And it's bothering Rondo, as he spoke with the media Thursday, per K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune:

This isn't college. We don't have to go to class, you don't have to wake up at 6 in the morning and do other things. Our job is to play basketball. I feel like, certain individuals are different from others. We might need to spend a little more time learning the playcalling or learning defensive schemes, whatever we need to do. This is our only job. Young, experienced or not, we have enough older guys, we have enough coaches on the staff that do a great job on the scouting report to get us ready for the gameplan. We just have to stay disciplined to do it.

His comments come less than a week after Butler tried to instill some tough love among his teammates amid a Bulls slump.
