Rajon Rondo does not want to be filmed, guys


“No, I won’t be answering any questions about my jacket, either.

Last night after the Celtics lost to the Hawks, 87-86, Rajon Rondo spotted a TNT cameraman filming him in the hallway outside the locker room and didn’t like it one bit. In fact, Rondo put on his creepy eyes, pointed straight at the photographer, walked over and confronted him:

“How many times I’m gonna tell you, dog. You’re not filming me. I told you quit filming. Do not film me. I’m not doing an interview right now.”

Now, Rondo had a rough night, going 6-17 from the field and coming up with a crucial steal with ten seconds left in the game only to dribble the ball off his foot, so I can understand having a short temper, but man, that was pretty diva. Maybe Sir Charles was right when he said he was just upset about being filmed in that jacket he was wearing:

    He is a terrific player, but he needs to grow up.

    I honestly wish that Rondo and his jacket would have never came to UK. Never have liked him. Never will like him.

    That jacket reminded me of the time a friend of mine had to wear a puffy shirt as a favor to someone. He was in a bad mood the whole time.

    Teams / People / Coaches / Fans would all appreciate him more….if he’d drop his bad attitude and appreciate where he is in life. He’s got it made….just enjoy it!!!

    7) I agree, but it’s obvious by now that his personality is at times surley, and it’s not that easy to just drop a part of your personality. He’s always been moody and sullen, that’s just part of his makeup.

    Don’t blame Rondo one bit. Trying to talk to his family, had a bad game and he’s got a camera-man just waiting for him to smile or something so some analysts can break him down and say that he doesn’t take the game seriously or that he is selfish or something, kinda like how the media did Rob Gronkowski, after the super bowl. Why do they need to film someone when there trying to spend some time with there family after an emotional game, should be off limits. Rondos the man!!! He will go down as a top 20 player to ever play in the NBA!

    Here is this camera guy, making maybe 2% of what Rondo does getting chewed out for doing his job. He is a great player but seriously- grow up. That said- There should be a family area that is off limits to reporters and cameras.

    he is who he is. an elite point guard is one those things. he is surly but he has also done some really great things off the court. he is human. I bet a lot of you that are throwing stones would not handle the NBA spotlight very well either after a big loss.

    2) You stole my words…agree 100%! I wish his punk ass had went to UofL. Him and Cousins are my most hated UK players of all time. Without basketball, both, most likely would of ended up in the hood dealing or in the pen. Neither had no business being on a college campus in the first place. Truth!

    Well, that camera guy was a little paparazzi-esque filming the guy in the bowels of the arena with his family. What was to be gained from that? However, Rondo overreacted like a woman. If he just ignores it, that film never is viewed. His reaction, though, made sure it was. I still like Rondo, though.

    I love Rondo, and he will always be a Wildcat regardless of what he does, but he needs to realize that he is becoming the face of the biggest NBA team in history and needs to start acting like it. You’re a super”star” for a reason and being filmed on video or getting your picture taken comes with the territory.

    There is nothing that annoys me more than watching a humble kid turn into an egotistical bitch because he is now a star in some way…Grow up Rajon, these last few weeks have made you look like a whining bitch.

    Neither Shaq nor Charles could comment on this issue, because both of them have done FAR worse, and they are both still loved dearly around the league. Rondo will have to do a lot for that to happen.

    If you could read, you would have noticed that I already said I liked him. Your intelligence, or lack thereof, continues to show itself. You don’t even know the definition of a diva. Or at least you lack the ability to correctly apply the term. I’d suggest starting with phonics and working your way up.

    Yes Rondo is a Douche sometimes. But he does good things too if you all cared to know.
    I’m going to come find all of you after a rough day of work, then I’m going to take notes on every mistake you make. After that I’m going to point them out and proclaim “this is why you suck.”

    And dont give me that he makes millions B.S. because by that logic people who work at McDonalds have a right to be A-Holes.

    This is the only place I’ve ever witnessed a collection of UK fans not able to get along. Could you imagine 2 guys wearing UK gear getting in a physical fight over Rondo? Maybe back in Lexington, but out here, a stranger in Blue and White is an automatic friend.

    Rajon Is one of the best PG In the league but he Is also the biggest douche bag In the league. Hes actually a b!tch. Almost makes me wish he would have never came to UK. Its not like he did anything when he was here anyways.

    WHY ARE WE ALWAYS SO QUICK TO HATE?
    You all talk about BBN like its a family, but you act like it’s a buisness. We praise players when they are doing the right thing then disown them when they mess up. So we only claim the guys who are exactly what we want them to be? Thats not how a family is. Like it or not he came to UK. And yea he’s a dick. But how about not openly dissing him. He seriously he hasnt done anything egregious enough to warrant the comments you guys leave sometimes.

    32) Alright, here’s your chance to vent…like the little bitch that you are! Exactly why do you disagree with those that are hating on Rondo? Why should “we”, admire him as much as you? Give me one reason to why I should like the guy other than the fact that he played at UK. Just one.



  40. Mudcreekmark

    Rondo hates to lose just like I did when I played. It was just an emotional game and he was feeling bad about the last play and the last thing he wanted was a camera in his face. I would rather have a player act like this than one act like he just don’t care.And by the was number 12 above, if you think that Rondo will go down as a top 20 player of all time you must have not been following basketball long.He won’t even go down as one of the top 20 point guards of all time let alone top players.

    20, you’re the type fan that probably gave A. Bennett such a hard time. If your a real fan of UK not some troll, you would be considered that 3% of UK fans that give the rest a bad name and make recruiting a little more difficult. Just stay hidden behind that keyboard and hopefully no one will figure out who you really are.

    41) Because I care about a young man’s character makes me a “troll”? You’re an idiot! I have every right, as a Ky taxpayer, to object to a young man…or woman, with questionable background, to be granted a scholarship at UK. You are the one that needs to stay hidden. Geez…

    There is absolutely nothing more disgusting than the over-inflated egos exhibited by a professional athlete. People need to evaluate their own self-worth when paying hard earned money to support these louts. Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo both need to step back and stop thinking of themselves as supermen… they definately are not.



  44. Ciggy

    Rondo is a bit of a douche, but he’s still BBN for life. No one but him knows what drives him, or bugs him. Dude is a beast on that court, no one can deny t hat. I wish he had a bit of a shooting touch though, he would be unstoppable then. Or he might not be as good as he is now, guy guarding him always sags off and he can see that court so well.

    I am sure it is standard operating procedure for a sports camerman to get chewed out. If they didn’t take the risk of getting chewed out or punched in face they would not get any good footage and would quickly be out of a job. So I’d say the camerman wasn’t offended and Rondo has nothing to regret either (except putting on that jacket). Every really good team in NBA needs a little attitude. Celtics got Rondo and Garnett, Lakers got Kobe, Bynum, Artest… It is just part of it.
