Rajon Rondo sat out last night’s game against the Washington Wizards with a strained hamstring, but he did find an unique way to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. To honor the one-year anniversary of the bombing, Rondo wore a custom pair of shoes printed with the date and “Boston Strong” embroidered on the tongue, and the victims’ initials printed on the body of the shoe. He said he’ll donate the kicks to One Fund, a charity designed to help the victims.

Good on ya, Rajon.

    RIP and God bless to all the victims. Blatant false flag though. Do some research before you come at me with your pitchforks.

      are a sheep, Delusion. Go back to your McDonald’s and your MSNBC while the rest of us continue to free our minds.

    Yet Rondo gets hammered by media and fans up here constantly. It’s pathetic.

    Glad you posted this story. Rondo is not only a terrific basketball player he is a good person. He does a ton of good work both in Boston and Louisville.

    Rajon, what did you do to help? You wore a pair of sneakers on the bench that were donated to you? And you’re donating them to charity? B R A V O. The Dalai Lama has nothing on this guy. I mean other than acts of selflessness.

    Rajon, how about you dig into your pocket, and write a CHECK to the victims?? I mean, a check with your name on it. that would impress me.
