Rajon Rondo, who has played in each of the last two Boston Celtics losses despite a hip pointer that has kept him significantly below 100 percent, isn’t okay with losing.

And he made it known, according to Boston.com, after Boston’s most recent lopsided loss, Wednesday evening to the Memphis Grizzlies.

“The frustrating part is just losing,” he said. “I’m a sore loser. It’s tough to lose.”

And for Rondo, he doesn’t think his teammates feel these early-season losses enough.

“Everybody isn’t,” he said. “You’ll learn that everybody isn’t a sore loser. Some teams are OK with losing. Some guys are OK with just getting a check. But everything I do, I compete. So, this four-game losing streak is frustrating.”

It was a subtle shot, but enough of one to give off the feeling of separation in the locker room.

And those subtle shots are, reportedly, the reasoning for the Celtics shopping the star point guard, yet again.

According to the NBA on NBC, the Celtics are entertaining offers for Rondo.

Reliable sources tell nbaonnbc.com that the Celtics are entertaining offers” while trying to contend “right now”.

Quietly Celtics brass have had an inner conflict regarding Rondo, blaming him for the departure of Ray Allen. The celtics had long term plans for Allen including number retirement and a front office position. Seemingly those plans are no longer.
