rondo-espn Before Kentucky sends seven new players to the NBA here in a moment, take second to read about one Wildcat that's already proven himself in the NBA, but has an extremely bad temper. has an excellent feature on Rajon Rondo, the Mavs' star point guard who can't seem to get along with anyone. It is called "Good At Math, Bad At People" and it begins with Kevin Garnett telling the story of how Doc Rivers once ordered him to physically remove Rondo from the Celtics locker room:
Rivers, fed up, gives Garnett an order: "I want Rondo out." Garnett obliges. "He kicked the door off the hinges," Garnett says. "I'll never forget: I had to pick him up and carry him out because it was going like that, and the locker room was suuuper tense. Just super tense." As he's hauling the 6-foot-1, 186-pound point guard, the 6-11 Garnett barks, "Get outside, man, shit," physically carrying Rondo outside the room, then the building.
The author, Baxter Holmes, begins telling the story of Rondo from there, beginning with his childhood in Louisville. Holmes then brings us to today, where Rondo is butting heads with his new coach and teammates in Dallas. Definitely give it a read when you can. []
