LeBron James Compares Rajon Rondo to Barry Sanders

LeBron James Compares Rajon Rondo to Barry Sanders

Whoa! Here's a pretty impressive comparison—that becomes even more impressive when you consider the source. In between Games 2 and 3 of the Heat/Celtics series, LeBron James & Co. have apparently been spending a lot of time trying to find ways to contain Rajon Rondo moving forward. So, of course, LBJ was asked exactly what Miami was going to do to try and combat the little guy after practice yesterday. And what he said might surprise you.

"You really can't," he said. "Every time he has the ball, you always have to know that he's capable of making something happen, not only for himself, but for his teammates...He's like Barry Sanders. You wouldn't want to run up on him all crazy in the backfield back in the day, either. He'll spin you around and get a touchdown. So you gotta be smart with it."

Barry Sanders?! High praise, especially coming from King James. And something tells us it's got Mike D'Antoni spinning in his (playoff) grave as we speak. [via True Hoop]
