NBA news is sort of hard to come by with the lockout going on. Recently, Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics shot a shoe commercial for Champs Sports. In the commercial, Rondo catches a purple and gold shoe that causes his attire to be changed from a Celtic green color to the purple and gold of the Los Angeles Lakers. Don't worry, he didn't like it either. Here is the video courtesy of Champs Sports.
Rajon Rondo was also in the news recently when it was brought to light that President Obama was critical of his jump shooting ability. The question was posed whether the criticism was directly related to Rondo's struggles shooting the basketball towards the end of the season and in the playoffs. Our friends over at CelticsBlog did a great job of debunking the myth yesterday.
