Rajon Rondo shared a picture of his $400/night room at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort with the following caption: “Motel 6 hun,” which was a clear shot at the NBA putting him and his teammates in rooms that they are not accustomed to being in.
The Los Angeles Lakers point guard shared that picture on his Instagram story that eventually made its way to Twitter:
Former NBA guard and champion Antonio Daniels took offense to Rajon cries about his massive hotel while the rest of the country is in the midst of a global pandemic and folks are out of jobs and struggling to keep their heads above water.
“Our country is in turmoil, economically, socially and physically. Unemployment is at an all time high, and ppl are worried about how to make ends meet, no one is trying to hear this. Players are incredibly blessed and must remain sensitive to the current state of our nation.”
Daniels played 13 seasons in the NBA from 1997-2011 and was selected by the Vancouver Grizzlies with the fourth overall pick in the 1997 NBA draft. He won an NBA championship in 1999 as a member of the San Antonio Spurs and also played for the Portland Trail Blazers, Seattle Supersonics, Washington Wizards, New Orleans Hornets and Philadelphia 76ers.
He finished his career averaging 7.6 points and 3.4 assists per game and competed in the playoffs in 10 of his 14 seasons.
