Does Rondo Understand He's a Short, Skinny Guy?
I’ve got a ring, and you’re never gonna win one.
That's what Rajon Rondo reportedly said to Chris Paul during their verbal tit-for-tat on Sunday. Ray Allen was reportedly so embarrassed that he walked into the Hornets' locker room and apologized.
I've said before that I'm no fan of such boastful and brash in-your-face behavior. Ali was Ali, Namath was Namath, and Bird was Bird. But Rajon Rondo? I mean, does he understand that he's a short, skinny guy playing in a league of giants? I'm not worried about Chris Paul retaliating. But Chris Paul has teammates, and many of those guys are bigger than Rondo, much bigger. And what about the giants who play on other teams and take exception to Rondo's taunting of Paul?
Not smart, Rajon. In fact, pretty f'n stupid.
