Rajon Rondo Goes After Cameraman Following Loss [VIDEO]
Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo (and his unique jacket) went after a cameraman following a Game 5 loss to the Atlanta Hawks.
Rajon Rondo was visibly upset with a cameraman who was filming him following an 87-86 Game 5 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night. Rondo told the cameraman that he was spending time with his family and that he wasn't doing an interview at the time.
Rondo didn't have a great game against the Hawks in Game 5. Rondo shot 6-for-17 from the field and committed a turnover in the final seconds. It's understandable that he was a little on edge. I think it's funny that a lot of athletes want the camera on them at all times when things are going well, but when things head south, it's like, "Get that freakin camera out of my face." However, Rondo didn't go crazy so it's really not a big deal.
Charles Barkley made light of the moment by making fun of Rondo's unique jacket. This is why Charles Barkley is the best studio personality in sports. The man is absolutely hysterical. The entertainment value you get from watching Barkley on TNT's "Inside the NBA" is second to none. On a side note, I automatically wonder if Rondo will rock out a crazy jacket when he plays a preseason game against the New York Knicks on October 20th at the Times Union Center. Albany has its collective fingers crossed.
