Rajon Rondo is slowly becoming one of my favorite players in the NBA. He is grossly talented, slightly immature, looks like Earthworm Jim, and has a subtle sense of humor. I love his reaction to the trade rumors earlier this season- ripping off a 17 pt, 20 assist, 18 rebound game as if to say “go ahead and trade me Danny Ainge, and you’ll regret it more than the Trailblazer regret passing on MJ.” But he is certainly immature as well- like in his current series versus the Hawks when he “accidentally” tripped into an official. That’s what’s great about Rondo, you never know what you’re going to get. He’s like Andrew Bynum, except smaller and has knees that aren’t made of toothpicks.
One example of Rondo’s humor can be found in his ritual to start each game. Check out this video:
Rondo can, and should take this ritual further. He should maybe considering passing it off the opposing teams’ backboard to himself. He should set up an entire offensive line to snap it to him (like this). Maybe he should pass it to random fans who would then sign the ball and pass it back. Rondo, we believe in this ritual, let’s take it to the next level!
