George Karl clears up confusion over nonexistent "feud" with Rajon Rondo

Relationship between the point guard and head coach is just fine, so everyone chill!

Some Sacramento Kings fans and the media were beside themselves Wednesday with a short interview clip in which Rajon Rondo claimed to be feuding with head coach George Karl.

"It hasn't been going too well," he said. "We got into a couple of arguments the last couple of days, but we continue to talk and get better."

Except there was a small matter of this being a classic case of Rondo being Rondo, it turns out. He was just kidding you guys! It seems like his deadpan delivery of said joke might have gotten lost in translation but Karl had some interesting things to say about his point guard afterwards.

A chuckling Karl backed Rondo up fully and had this to say to reporters.

With that nonsense out of the way, we can get back to counting down the days until the regular season begins and the games finally matter again.
