Give Rajon Rondo credit for honesty. When interviewed at the Red Bull "King of the Rock" event on notorious Alcatraz Island, the speedy Celtics All-Star point guard named the fans at Chicago's United Center as the league's most obnoxious crowd.
"I’d say Chicago," Rondo told RedBull.com. "Ever since a couple years back in the playoffs, me and Kirk [Hinrich] got into it and they’ve been booing me and heckling me ever since."
Rondo's referring to that 2009 first round playoff series between the two teams. The Celtics-Bulls rivalry (if you want to call it that) was kicked into gear in that postseason. Derrick Rose's ascension to stardom has helped escalate matters too, as the debate rages on as to who is the better point guard. Arguably, Rose settled that argument last season, averaging 25 points per game, shooting 45% from the field, and winning the league's MVP award.
