Individual awesomeness in 2010
Rajon Rondo, May 22, Celtics vs. Magic
The Celtics point guard dove under the Magic's Jason Williams to grab a loose ball under the Orlando basket, then got up, faked Williams out of his socks and blew past him for a layup. The Celtics crushed Magic 94-71 in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals, and Rondo's hustle was the signature play of the series, if not the Celtics' entire run through the playoffs.
I just wanted it, Rondo said. I just wanted to make a play on the ball. I think he had the angle on me and I decided to dive for the ball and it just so happened I came up with it and made the play and scored the ball.
