Rajon Rondo lowkey at the Red Sox game

Rajon Rondo lowkey at the Red Sox game

Rajon Rondo is one of the most interesting players to ever play in the league.
He rollerskates, plays Angry Birds, wears Bret Hart shades before the game and zany jackets after, tucks lip balm in his sock at all times, eats his sushi with Gatorade, was an intern at GQ, and perhaps his most fascinating trait: performing weird routines before and after tip-off. 
According to teammate Jason Terry in a recent ESPN interview:


“His routine is long-winded and it lasts all the way through tip-off. It starts in the back hallway. He runs down a corridor and he throws the ball to our team chaplain, who throws it back. Then [Rondo] runs out into a circle, high-fives the whole team and then he does the layup lines for five minutes.
“Then he will stand under the goal and Paul Pierce will shoot every ball on the rack from half court. Rondo will catch four balls at one time and then after that, it’s just amazing — one pass off the backboard to KG, one bounce pass to Paul Pierce and then he throws it all the way up to the scoreboard and Jeff Green finishes with an alley-oop.
“It’s every game, even road games. I have no idea how he started it; I’m new to the team. I was still going through layup lines and I almost got hit with one of those balls in the head. I wasn’t aware that’s what they were doing. It threw me off.”


Never change, Rajon.

Rondo’d (v.) To create a distraction followed by a swift change of direction.

KG: “Okay kids, y’all got to do 100 of these shits”
Quis: “Great form, B”
Ray: “My form is better”
Keyon: “I can’t believe I’m on this team!”
Rondo: “But can you do that with roller skates on?”
KG: “Soon as I’m done with these, I’m going to eat all you m**** f****’ children”

"It’s kind of irrelevant. We lost. Simple as that."

Rondo doesn’t care that you thought he had a great game.

"Rondo, obviously, he’s the head that forms Voltron; He’s the black lion."

If KG doesn’t replace Shaq on TNT after he retires, it’ll be a crying shame.

2010-2011 Player Profile: Rajon Rondo
Rajon Rondo is so good, I actually like him.  That’s saying a lot, because generally, I hate the players I wish played for my favorite team.  I want that admiration to color everything else I’m about to say.  So, don’t forget:  “I like Rajon Rondo.”  Screw it.  I’m not typing out Rajon Rondo anymore.  I’m making up a nickname.  I’m calling him…Rajondo.
