We’ve already written about Kobe Bryant and Rajon Rondo sharing a meal before the Boston Celtics’ beat the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night. Frankly, there’s not much more to glean from their meeting than what’s been assumed for some time – that the Lakers will chase Rondo in free agency this summer. But this awesome quip from the C’s point guard on breakfast with Mamba deserves standalone attention nonetheless.
Rondo said he and Kobe were "just two assholes having breakfast."

Hilarious. Rondo was referencing this uniquely complimentary exchange from last January:
Only Kobe could call someone an asshole and make it a compliment. Kobe on Rondo: "From what I understand he’s an asshole, like me."

Rondo, on being called an asshole by Kobe: "That's a great compliment, coming from Kobe. I feel the same way about him."

How would these ***holes look wearing purple-and-gold next season, Lakers fans?
