Things have not been going well lately for the Chicago Bulls. Not only are they tumbling in the NBA’s Eastern Conference standings, there has been a great deal of locker room turmoil, which came to a head after last night’s loss when star players Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade criticized their teammates for what they perceived as a lack of effort.
One of those teammates, former Kentucky star Rajon Rondo, did not take kindly to that criticism, lashing back on Instagram Thursday afternoon.

Rondo was not the first Bulls player to make public comments, but he is already coming under fire for making this post. Rondo is no stranger to controversy. He drew a one-game suspension last year for yelling a homophobic slur at a referee, and was suspended again in December for conduct detrimental to the team.
