Rajon Rondo’s End of Days and his Ipod

Rajon is done in Dallas. He is pulled from the playoff roster, with rumors floating he won’t return in a Dallas uniform ever again. After his ten minute appearance, ESPN had this to say-

So what was he listening to? To tune out the mess of reporters and to stroke the high level of anger and cynicsm running through him needs an appropriate soundtrack. Here’s what I think it was-

The harrowing tale of a struggling Vietnam vet is both consuming and creepy. What better way to fuel your alienation on your own team than some Martin Rev?

Maybe Rondo needs something a bit more uplifting so he’ll go to the free jazz catalog of noted Ed Wood scholar (no, seriously) Rudolph Gray.

Fetty Wap – Trap Queen

I mean, duh. This song is great.
