Rajon Rondo Calls Out Dwyane Wade And Jimmy Butler After Comments

Rajon Rondo did not hold back when talking about the recent comments from Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler.

Dwyane Wade and Jimmy Butler called out their Bulls teammates after Chicago's loss to the Atlanta Hawks. The pair questioned if their teammates cared enough to win.

Well, Chicago point guard Rajon Rondo fired back on Instagram with a picture of himself, Kevin Garnett, and Paul Pierce from their days with the Boston Celtics, saying that those guys were the superior "vets."

Here's his full caption:

My vets would never go to the media. They would come to the team. My vets didn't pick and choose when they wanted to bring it. They brought it every time they stepped in the gym whether it was practice or a game. They didn't take days off. My vets didn't care about their numbers. My vets played for the team. When we lost, they wouldn't blame us. They took responsibility and got in the gym. They showed the young guys what it meant to work. Even in Boston when we had the best record in the league, if we lost a game, you could hear a pin drop on the bus. They showed us the seriousness of the game. My vets didn't have an influence on the coaching staff. They couldn't change the plan because it didn't work for them. I played under one of the greatest coaches, and he held everyone accountable. It takes 1-15 to win. When you isolate everyone, you can't win consistently. I may be a lot of things, but I'm not a bad teammate. My goal is to pass what I learned along. The young guys work. They show up. They don't deserve blame. If anything is questionable, it's the leadership.

After a troubling 23-24 start, the Bulls appear to be falling apart.
