Rajon Rondo, keep your hands off my man. I mean… let me start again.
There are so many players, Yankees players specifically, that Boston fans hate and attempt to remind Yankees fans that they’d hate too if they weren’t donning pinstripes. In all fairness, Boston teams have had plenty of these players over the years as well. While Manny Ramirez and Kevin Garnett immediately come to mind, perhaps the worst offender in my opinion is Rajon Rondo.
I’ve said it countless times, and I’ll say it again; I maintain that Rajon Rondo is one of the very best players in the game, but he’s also a complete punk. If he wasn’t a Celtic, I’d undoubtedly hate this guy. First off, when you’re 6’1 and 186 pounds you might want to find a new workout program option before you tangle with the 6’9 235 pound Kris Humphries. While that may not really be true (Humphries likely had a pedicure shortly before the game while catching up on The View), the spat that Rondo created against the Nets was not only completely uncalled for, but it will hurt his team now that he’s being suspended for 2 games. And I mean, come on man – Kris Humphries? How can you not love a guy who told Kim Kardashian she’d be irrelevant in a few years while dating her?
Don’t get me wrong – I love the little guy sticking up for his teammate despite the size of the opponent in question. But Humphries’ push of Kevin Garnett was incredibly subtle – literally dozens of such pushes take place in every single game. KG oversold it a bit by going down, but I guarantee you he would have simply popped up if Rondo hadn’t created an unnecessary melee. He’s lucky Humphries didn’t clock him one.
So while every in Boston says, “Hey did you see the Rondo fight?” “Yea it was wicked awesome!” just remember – Rondo’s basketball skills are breathtaking, but his attitude continues to be a work not in progress.
