Maybe SLAM hasn’t been exactly fair to Rajon Rondo. We named him an ‘honorable mention’ high school All-American in 2004. As he win chips with the Celtics, it was KG, P-Double and Jesus S. who got (most of) the love. It took until his fifth NBA season — he’s nearly 25 — for Rondo to appear in his first SLAM photo shoot. It also happened to be for his first cover… if that counts as any consolation.
