Rajon Rondo was, as you might expect, visibly upset following the Celtics’ 87-86 loss in Atlanta on Tuesday night. His emotion got the best of him after the game, though, as he did his best Randy Johnson/Kenny Rogers impersonation.
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.”
What made the situation truly unique, though, was Rondo’s fantastic zebra print jacket, which the TNT crewed honed in on after viewing the incident.
“OK, so he was doing family time; that was the first thing,” Charles Barkley said. “Second thing, I thought he was mad about that jacket he was wearing.”
After some laughs and some more comments regarding the jacket from Kenny “The Jet” Smith, Shaquille O’Neal threw the breaks on, saying Rondo is a passionate guy who was upset that he lost the ball on Boston’s final possession.
Check out the confrontation in the video below, as well as the ensuing tomfoolery from the TNT crew.
Yes, that’s a Vikings fan. And yes, that’s the state Senate chamber.
“Bill Romanowski — he told me he was going to take me out before the game, warm-ups. No problem. [He said,] ‘I’m gonna end your career, Carter.’ No problem. I put a little change on his head before the game. Protect myself. Protect my family. That’s the league that I grew up in.”
–Cris Carter, who said he put bounties on players during his NFL career in order to protect himself
