RONDO BEING RONDO
Amid all the flashes of brilliance on the court by Celtics guard Rajon Rondo, there have been a number of incidents involving Rondo that have been controversial, counterproductive, or downright foolish. He's been called a punk and petulant nearly as often as he's been called talented and terrific, so much so that chalking his actions up to “Rondo Being Rondo,” has become a part of the Boston sports lexicon.
Rondo’s latest incident was taking on the Nets’ Kris Humphries after Humphries committed a hard foul on Celtics center Kevin Garnett just before halftime of a game Nov. 28 at TD Garden. The ensuing fracas involved players from both teams and spilled into the stands. Rondo, Humphries and the Nets’ Gerald Wallace were all ejected, and Rondo was later suspended for two games.
Take a look at other moments, both good and bad, that fit the “Rondo Being Rondo” classification.
