LeBron James shared his thoughts on why Rajon Rondo steps up in the NBA playoffs.

James explained why the veteran guard elevates his game when postseason starts.

“You don’t get these moments a lot. It’s been over a decade since he’s been in the Finals. I think he just cherishes the moment, but also just playing the game that he loves to play in a cerebral way, a determined way and a championship way,” James said, via Broderick Turner of Yahoo Sports.

Rondo scored seven points and added three rebounds, four assists and one block in helping the Lakers open a 1-0 lead against the Miami Heat.

Game 2 is on Friday.
