I thought Ray was weird:-)))

Nice post game interview too.  Rondo is tough on the questioners though.

One of my favorite things about Rondo is how little enthusiasm he has for "dumb" questions.
Michael Jordan: It's a man's game, and you can't play.
 Bill Murray: It's 'cause I'm white, isn't it?
Michael Jordan: No. Larry's white, so what?
Bill Murray: Larry's not white. Larry's clear.

not sure the point of this thread.

Here's the full post from Terry on Rondo and the other players:

"Jeff Green, myself and Courtney Lee, we all do a little thing [before a game] where we'll slap hands twice, I'll fly in his direction, he'll fly towards me and we'll spin around. Then, we call Jeff Green 'Iron Man,' so we'll open up our chests like 'Iron Man' and then Courtney Lee will come in with a crazy, goofy dance to end it off, and then we'll go to the jump-off."

Quote
"Before I came here, I had a ritual, and that was I'd throw the ball and make sure I hit the JumboTron. Some of them were way, way up to the ceiling, and I wanted to hit it every time. The funniest story is one time I hit the JumboTron, the ball came back and hit the ref in the head. I walked off so quick. It was Dick Bavetta."

Wish we had video evidence of these.

I was still going through layup lines and I almost got hit with one of those balls in the head. I wasn't aware that's what they were doing

Rofl that would have been hilarious could picture that receeding hairline dome of his getting popped ;D
