Celtics Rondo got dissed by Obama

Quote:
In early March some of the guys went to the museum of Fine Arts for a fund-raiser and got to hang with President Barack Obama. Everyone was a little bit in awe. The President turns to Ray, points at Rondo, and says, ďHey, Ray, why donít you teach this kid how to shoot?Ē Everyone starts laughing...

KG told me he saw the look on Rondoís face and the kid was devastated, embarrassed. Dissed by the President, even though Iím sure Obama didnít mean any harm. Rondo smiled and went along with all of it, but KG told me he could see it in his eyes. It bothered Rondo. It killed him.

The next day Rondo shot the ball horribly. He stopped taking shots after that. Heís so sensitive. I think it was a real jolt to hear the outside perception of a basketball fan who happens to be the President of the United States. It messed with his mind. Iím sure of it.
