The KG/Rondo dynamic: clash and recover

In many ways, Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo are the same person, they just express themselves a little differently.  Think of them as cars with the same engine, but different bodies.  The thing about their personalities, though, is that they're always right... at least in their own minds.  And they're not going to believe they're wrong until someone they respect...
