The Tuesday Morning Furball – Rondo Eats What?
RONDO EATS WHAT?
What does Rondo eat right before the big game? If you guessed sushi and Gatorade, then you either cheated and saw the chopsticks in the picture, or you’re a genius. Either way, well done sir. That picture you see above is actually a still shot from an animation that shows Rondo whuffing down his dead fish. If you want to check out the actual animation click here. If you’re thinking to yourself right now, “why would I want to watch Rondo eating a dead fish?”, then maybe this video of Rondo driving a NASCAR (am I supposed to say car after NASCAR?) will satisfy you.
BLEDSOE TRADE RUMORS:
Eric Bledsoe might be getting a new team this week (keep your fingers crossed) as his name has popped up in a trade rumor that would send Bledsoe to the TrailBlazers for Jamal Crawford. According to CBSsports.com:
The Trail Blazers and Clippers are discussing a deal that would send Jamal Crawford to the Clippers for Eric Bledsoe and Ryan Gomes, league sources told CBSSports.com. The talks have not advanced to the ownership level, but the two teams have exchanged proposals and were mulling over this idea on Monday.
While anywhere but Los Angeles would be a better place for Bledsoe, I’m hoping he gets traded to either the Pistons, Wizards, Kings, 76ers, Rockets, Jazz, Thunder, Magic, Celtics, Raptors or Knicks.
THE PRINCE OF DETROIT:
Tayshaun Prince just played his 700th career NBA game, all as a member of the Detroit Pistons. He is just the 6th player in Pistons history to reach that mark. Tayshaun Prince is awesome, just ask Lebron…
BLEDSOE VS. RONDO
The Celtics beat the Clippers last night (technically this morning) 94-85. Rondo had a great game, even though NBA officials refused to let him wear his black sunglasses during the game to protect his eye, which was poked by Marcus Camby. Rondo finished the game with 12 points, 10 assists, 2 rebounds and 2 steals but also had 6 turnovers. Bledsoe only played 4 minutes in the game, but he was able to foul 3 people and win the Clippers “bounty” pool. A full post game recap can be found here.
