Rajon Rondo Doesn’t Plan To Wear ‘I Can’t Breathe’ T-Shirt: ‘To Each His Own’


Rajon Rondo will stick with his usual pregame attire, for now.

The Boston Celtics point guard has no plans to join the legion of NBA players donning “I Can’t Breathe” T-shirts, he told Steve Bulpett of the Boston Herald. While Rondo supports the shirts’ message, he and the Celtics have not discussed taking a stand themselves.

“Everybody’s different,” Rondo told the Herald in Charlotte, N.C., where the Celtics fell to the Hornets 96-87 on Wednesday. “To each his own. And I definitely support the guys that have worn the T-shirts, but I haven’t reached out to anybody or had anybody reach out to me about wearing a T-shirt, so I’m just going to continue to do what I do.”

LeBron James, Derrick Rose, former Celtic Kevin Garnett and others have worn the shirts in memory of Eric Garner, a Staten Island man who died as a result of a police chokehold. Garner’s death was widely circulated on video, in which he can be heard telling an officer, “I can’t breathe.”
