Teaching freshman algebra with Ms. Oshodi at Burke high school this AM. Thx for having me twitter.com/RajonRondo/sta… — Rajon Rondo (@RajonRondo) November 6, 2012 Now this has made my day. Scratch that. It made my week. No, it probably made my year! I posted today about how excited I was, as a math teacher, to see Jared Sullinger's dad Satch using math in explaining basketball strategy. Now, this. Mark Murphy talked about Rondo's prowess in math in a Herald story. Rajon Rondo was the smartest kid in math class as a high school freshman, and the problem was that he knew it. “He never used to bring his book to class or take any notes,” said Doug Bibby, Rondo’s freshman geometry teacher and, coincidentally, also his basketball coach for the three years he spent at Eastern High School in Louisville, Ky. “There were quite a few times when I gave out a problem for the class to work on, and he would just blurt out the answer. I would kind of get (ticked) because I thought he was just being an (expletive).” That was good, but to see Rondo at the chalkboard teaching Algebra is awesome. I mean, how many point guards in the league can go into a classroom and teach algebra?  Put this together with Satch Sullinger's math lesson and it makes a whole lot of sense why Rondo is so good.  It may also explain why I'll have a smile on my face today.
