Rajon Rondo of the Los Angeles Lakers finds himself in a good situation. With LeBron James and Anthony Davis, he is in a team that has good chances of winning the NBA title. However, it appears the 33-year-old feels they are lacking something to make that happen.

In an interview with Ben Rohrbach of Yahoo Sports, the one-time NBA champion answered a lot of hot questions. One of them headed to a comparison between the Boston Celtics and his current team, the Lakers. For Rondo, that 2008 NBA champion team was pretty stacked. Among the players at the time were Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen, plus himself. Obviously, he inadvertently feels that a third superstar is truly needed.

“It’s just LeBron and AD [Anthony Davis],” he added. “The rest of us, we’re role players.”

Rondo missed the season-opening loss of the Lakers to the Clippers. James played the point and critics feel that he does not fit the role. There is no doubt that the four-time NBA All-Star can do better. He is someone who has been around and can get everyone involved.

The 6-foot-1 Rondo has had a turbulent NBA career since leaving the Celtics in 2014. He has not been spared from controversy against his former coaches and fellow players. Everyone knows his infamous beef with Rick Carlisle and his altercation with players like Chris Paul. The Lakers will be his fifth team since leaving Boston. So far, he seems to be fitting in.

As for his role, Rondo is fine coming off the bench for now. He is coming off an injury and says he will just do what head coach Frank Vogel wants from him.

“My preference is what Coach Vogel wants me to do… I’ll be cool with that,” he said.

The Lakers were able to bounce back against the Utah Jazz, 95-86, and formally snag their first win of the season. James had a better game with 32 points and 10 assists. Despite those numbers, some feel that Rondo is a better option. Also, it relieves James of playmaking duties to focus on scoring.

The Lakers play the Charlotte Hornets in their next assignment at the Staples Center on Oct. 27. Tip-off is at 9:30 p.m. with Los Angeles holding a slight edge to pull through.
