Rajon Rondo of the Boston Celtics is a loose cannon, as shown from some of his in-game antics this year. Rondo wasn’t really doing anything, just standing around chatting after the Celtics loss to the Hawks in Game 5 on Tuesday. But yet, that didn’t stop Rondo from trying to intimidate a TNT camerman and tell him “you are not to film me, I’m not doing an interview right now”.
I see absolutely nothing wrong with what the cameraman was doing, as it wasn’t like he was two feet away from Rondo and shoving the camera into his face. The cameraman was off in the distance, and not just filming Rondo, but a few guys that were standing around. And it’s not like he was getting his privacy invaded… this was in the arena still. This is a little much from Rondo in my opinion, but on the other side of the coin, I’m sure he was frustrated after the loss (and his awful 6/17 shooting for the night, and the disastrous final Celtics possession that he initiated). Hopefully for the Celtics, Rondo channels this aggression on the court in tonight’s Game 6 against the Hawks.
