News of Rajon Rondo's injury spread quickly throughout the league, and a lot of the premier athletes in the NBA as well as the NFL and MLB took to twitter to voice their support.
It kind of speaks to the level of respect that Rondo has among his peers. Say what you want about Kobe Bryant, but he calls Rondo one of his favorite players in the world. That kind of says a lot coming from him.
WEEI posted a great collection of all of them. Here's a couple from some of the most notable players.
Gotta give well wishes to Rondo. One of my fav players in the world. My prayers r with u lil bro. I'm here if u need me #respect
