ANIMATED: Dead Rajon Rondo

When it comes to embellishing taking a charge in the NBA, there's a certain level of finesse involved in selling the play. Then, there's what Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo did during the C's first-round 2012 NBA Playoff game against the Atlanta Hawks on Sunday. Take a look at the GIF below to observe:

If you look closely, you can see Rondo give a quick look over to the referee before putting his head down on the floor and laying still.

The Celtics lead the series 2-1. If Boston goes on to win Game 4, Rondo taking the charge in the first quarter against Hawks guard Jannero Pargo might not be the turning point, but it will be one of the more entertaining parts of the game.
