"It's a business" is a line that every athlete has on the tip of their tongue when the questions about contracts come up. Rajon Rondo was the latest to throw out the line following the Boston Celtics loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
When asked about his contract and his future in Boston Rondo said, I wouldn't mind staying here the rest of my career. Things don't always seem to go that way, but like I said before, it's just a business."
Yes, it is just a business. When an athlete says that it negates any sort of confidence fans should have in the player, or the team. Rondo is saying it probably because he's no fool and he understands that Danny Ainge could trade him away.
Boston fans have heard other athletes make similar statements. Jon Lester even said it regarding his contract and the pay day he could also command on the open market next season. He said he would take a hometown discount, but no one can really be trusted until a name is on a contract and the press has been gathered for a conference.
After all, it is still a business.
