Rajon Rondo is excited to dine on the other side of the table of Los Angeles’ most heated rivalry.

The new LA Clippers guard appeared Friday on ESPN’s “The Jump” and said he was looking forward to doing battle with the Los Angeles Lakers.

“It’s different,” said Rondo of the dynamic between the two teams. “It was a rivalry. I’ve been getting just a lot of welcome-backs. I’m looking forward to the competition.”
