Badass: Winning the 2008 NBA Title With The Big 3
When: 2007-08 Season
When the O.G. Big Three was assembled in Boston in '08, they got paired with a young big in Kendrick Perkins and some kid from Kentucky who'd be running the show and getting the ball to all of those stars. The kid was Rondo, and the team was the eventual champions. Rondo held his own and had amazing growth in his second year that worked seamlessly with the three All-Stars and helped catapult them to the top in their first season together. People thought Rondo would be the reason they don't win, when it turned out he did everything they needed him to do (10.2 PPG and 6.6 APG in the playoffs) and set himself up as a young guy to watch down the line.
