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.

i'm sure obama was just trying to hang like one of the guys. it just shows how impossible it is for the president to be 'just one of the guys.

As understandable as that might be, the fact is to be the best you have to take your lumps and show up when it matters and until Rondo can shoot 75% from the line and actually make a mid-range jumper all he'll be good for is dropping dimes to three HOFers. Aging HOFers at that.

Homeboy gets paid enough money to take barbs like that....even if it is from the Prez. You know if George W said that, it wouldn't have been taken that way.

Rondo has insanely large hands and arms. I think his hands are almost the same size as Shaq's which make defense pretty easy, but shooting pretty hard.

Yeah, but Jordan's were only slightly larger than they should be for a man his size. Rondo's hands are like the equilvalent of a 7 footer's.

Big hands have nothing to do with it; it's all upstairs.

If Kobe heard this, he'd shoot jumpers until he couldn't miss.
