Someone Threw a Punch at Rajon Rondo in a Club

The night prior to his charity game at Harvard on Saturday, Rajon Rondo went out to celebrate, and his evening was nearly ruined when another club-goer threw a punch (that missed) at the Celtics’ star point guard. From WHDH: “Rajon Rondo and several other NBA players were at a nightclub called Brian’s Ivy Hall in downtown Lowell Friday night when a man attacked Rondo. Rondo was the special guest at a nightclub on Friday night but apparently not everyone was impressed with the star’s appearance at the club. A man inside the club threw a punch at Rondo but there was no contact. The club owner said that Rondo was not mingling with the crowd and refused to take photos with the patrons. As Rondo was leaving a man threw a punch, narrowly missing the Celtic’s guard. Rondo was seen on Saturday playing at a charity event at Harvard, showing no effects of the night before. The club owner said the man that threw the punch was not drunk and he had no idea why the man would want to attack Rondo.”

    a lakers fan in boston?


    Or maybe a pissed off cluber who spent a lot of money to get in b.c of the basketball celebs and was disgusted that Rondo wouldnt mingle!


    The man’s aim at throwing punches must be as terrible as Rondo from 14 feet or more from the rim jumpers.

    Disgruntled former arena worker? But in all seriousness I hope my favourite player Rondo is doin’ okay and glad the punch wasn’t landed.

    @BAWSE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVQIjJbY2m0 I’m posting this vide everytime I see somebody going off on dudes shooting, until one of you proves you can hit 8 NBA threes in a row (defense or no defense) lay off dude. Rondo’s problem has never been his field shooting, only his free-throw shooting. Rondo can knock down a 14 footer with ease, he simply isn’t ever given the green-light to unless theres 2 seconds left on the shot clock. A PG who has accomplished as much as Rondo should be given more free reign in the offense than Doc has give Rondo

    Also, I don’t know the guy, but from what I’ve read/heard/whatever, Rondo’s an a**hole.
    I read elsewhere the dude that threw the punch didn’t even know who Rondo was and doesn’t even follow the NBA, he just felt disrespected by Rondo for whatever reason.
    And yeah, Hinrich still owes dude a beatdown.

    who cares if he didn’t mingle he’s overrated as s*** i wouldn’t even ask him for his autograph…if drose was ther thats a diff story

  • shuref00t

    Should’ve went for Rondo’s elbow, à la Dwayne Wade.

  • Heals

    Amen BRKam. I was thinking along that line CAVEMAN, but more in a sense that he and BMiller better have some good alibis…

    Man, I’ve never heard anybody argue that he reason Rondo doesn’t shoot more or better is because he doesn’t have the greenlight in Doc River’s offense. They must a run a totally different offense when Delonte and Sam Cassell played the point…

  • shutupallenp

    Delonte is a shooting pg or at least a slasher and sam cassell is a shooting pg too, so i bet its a bit different when rondos playing looking to set other people up, maybe he doesnt have the green light maybe hes just been trained as a passer/playmaker, either way throwing punches at someone because they wont sign an autograph or for some stupid reason is bs.
