Rajon Rondo Took the Subway to the Nets-Celtics Game

Having kept everyone guessing about his health status for the season opener, Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo was in the starting lineup Wednesday night, and played well in the 121-105 win against the visiting Brooklyn Nets.

Rondo rode the subway to the game with fellow C’s fans, and after registering 13 points, 12 assists, and seven rebounds, he playfully chided the local media for blowing his cover.

Per the Boston Globe:

The Orange Line makes a stop at North Station, which is also the home of the TD Garden, where the Celtics play. Before the game, a reporter inquired to Rondo about his travel habits to the Celtics opener. At first, the point guard wasn’t exactly forthcoming, but Rondo changed his tune when presented with the evidence.


Reporter: Did you ride the T to the game?


Rondo: “No”.


Reporter: There was a picture of you on the T.


Rondo: “Oh, is that right? Then why did you ask me that question? You are giving away my transportation to the game man!”
