LOUISVILLE, Kent. --- Former UK star Rajon Rondo was in Louisville Wednesday at MidAmerica Sports Complex for his kids basketball camp, 'Camp Rondo' but also talked about where he stands right now among the NBA's best players.
Asked if he thought he was one of the top-5 players in the league, Rondo said he certainly thought he belonged on that list.
"I believe so. I have to believe first, more than anybody else," said Rondo. "I'm a very confident player, always have been. I work extremely hard. I'm not satisfied where I am. I'm going to continue to work to get better."
Rondo's Celtics lost to LeBron James and the Heat in game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals. Asked what he thought of the criticism towards LeBron and finally winning his first title, Rondo simply said 'I don't know' and walked away.
'Camp Rondo', organized locally by Central High School coach Doug Bibby, has been very popular with hundreds of kids taking part. Rondo often plays in games with the kids. The camp in Louisville has even been popular enough to add overflow sessions beginning July 2nd.
