Rondo is fully into fashion as we saw from last year's internship with GQ in the off season and last night he guest starred on the Fashion Police with Joan Rivers. He is surprisingly good on these shows. One feature on the show is where the guest brings an item from their closet that others on the show decide to stash or trash. Rondo brought his zebra
Rondo wore that jacket in an infamous incident after a loss to the Hawks last season. The incident was described on The Sports Session.
With less than 15 seconds to go Rondo made a great defensive play and stole the ball on a pass, and immediately started pushing the ball the other way. With the final seconds ticking away Rondo decided to make a baseline move to hopefully kick out a pass for the winning shot, but the Hawks Al Horford was to quick and Rondo lost control of the ball as time ran off the clock.
was upset, but it was difficult to see how upset until a post game incident with a reporter showed what frame of mind he was in. Rondo was getting ready for his postgame news conference when he noticed out of the corner of his eye that he was being recorded. The Celtics point guard pointed at the camera, and then took it upon himself to confront the cameraman.
“I told you to quit filming,” Rondo said while being restrained. “Do not film me. I’m not doing an interview right now.”
Rondo briefly accosted the cameraman before being pulled away be a security staff member who was asking Rondo to keep his cool the entire time. It appeared that Rondo was also talking to some family members or friends when he felt stalked by the camera man, and maybe that is what set him off to the extent that it did.
The comedy of it all is that Rondo was wearing a Zebra/Prison striped jacket that did not make the best of fashion statements. The TNT Inside the NBA Crew of Kenny Smith, Charles Barkley, Ernie Johnson, and Shaquille O’Neal had some fun at the expense of Rondo and his fashion choice. They did say that Rondo was upset about the play and just lost his cool, but there is probably a very good chance we won’t be seeing Rondo wear that jacket anytime soon.
The verdict on The Fashion Police was to trash the jacket. Happily we won't be seeing that one again. Although I'm pretty sure he never wears the same outfit twice anyway. My favorite comment on the show came from Joan Rivers as she was describing the jacket:
"It's too old and not accomplishing anything. I'm surprised it doesn't play for the Lakers!"
I love it! Get to see Rondo and hear the Lakers trashed on the same show. Good stuff!!

We posted early yesterday afternoon that Rajon Rondo was going to be on Fashion Police on E! I went looking for the video just now with no luck, but did find this photo of Rondo dressed up for the show. Somehow he ended up sitting on a plastic chair Joan Rivers. We'll post the video when it comes available. Or if you find it first email it to me: firstname.lastname@example.org

Yesterday we talked a bit about the six point guards the Celtics were going to have in for a visit, as Danny Ainge and the C's are clearly targeting backup guard to help spell Rajon Rondo.

When people have discussions about the greatest players in the history of the NBA, it always seems that former Boston Celtics’ center Bill Russell is an afterthought. I’m not sure if it’s because of how long ago he played, or because he wasn’t a flashy offensive player, but my generation will consistently over look Russell [...]
