Rajon Rondo is a lot of things: an amazing basketball player, philanthropist, dog lover?, and yes, kind of a jerk, but I had to laugh when I saw this Vine today of him pump faking a free throw in last night’s Kings/Timberwolves game:
No one really knows why he did it — maybe to get the Timberwolves in the lane early? — but whatever the reason, it was all for naught because he missed the next attempt and squandered the chance to put his team within one of Minnesota with 2.7 seconds to play. The Timberwolves went on to win 99-95.
Karl’s reaction is my favorite. You know what Karl Towns doesn’t appreciate? Tomfoolery at the foul line. The foul line is for discipline, hard work, and repetition, not pranks.
