If going from hero to goat in a span of seconds wasn’t bad enough*, Rajon was roasted by the Inside the NBA crew for the monstrosity of a jacket he wore following the Celtics loss to the Hawks last night. Seriously. What was that? Was he auditioning for The Time?
He also wasn’t too thrilled that a cameraman was still filming him when he was talking to his close friends and family. Just an all-around tough time for the NBA’s purest point guard.
Don’t be surprised if Rondo nets another triple-double and comes out swinging for Game 6 as he almost always performs well when the light shines brightest on him.
*Rondo stole the Hawks inbounds pass in the closing seconds of Game 5 and then proceeded to dribble the ball while time ran out. Al Horford did one hell of a job switching out on Rondo though so the closing play blunder can’t solely be placed on Rajon.
