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-

… Rondo emerged with headphone buds in his ears and ignored the handful of reporters who attempted to ask him questions as he walked toward the arena’s exits, his eyes never shifting from straight ahead.

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-

Suicide – Frankie Teardrop

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?

Throbbing Gristle – What a Day

Genesis P-orridge nails the feeling of a bad day, backed by the cohorts of TG pounding it out in their weird fashion. Is there a player more probable to be a Throbbing Gristle fan than Rondo?

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.

 

 

Last Nights Number: Oklahoma City Thunder vs Dallas Mavericks

60

OKC’s Serge Ibaka had it down last night as he got 26 points and 10 rebounds and contributed to the Thunder’s 60 points in the paint against the Mavericks. Steven Adams had 11 and Perry Jones chipped in 10, but the Mavs had a small ball lineup.

Starting JJ Barea, Rajon Rondo and Monta Ellis, who combined for 42 points, Dirk Nowitzki was at Center for Tyson Chandler. Monta sprained his left ankle and didn’t return to the game, so Nowtizki had to take over and ended the game with 30 points, 5 rebounds, 2 assists, 2 blocks and a steal.

Russell Westbrook had a bad shooting night going 6 for 23 from the field in the 112-107 loss.

Last Nights Number: Boston Celtics vs Washington Wizards

7

The Wizards were down 7 points in the first Overtime period and stormed back to tie the game. In the second overtime, they were down 7 points and then John Wall took over the period with swift cuts to the basket. The Wizards won 133-132.

Wall ended the night with 26 points, 17 assists, 3 steals and 9 turnovers. Bradley Beal had a poor shooting night, ending with 14 points, on 5-12 shooting. The Celtics bench was other worldy, Brandon Bass & Kelly Olynyck both had 19 points. Marcus Smart, in his first significant game since returning from injury, logged 35 minutes and got 23 points, 5 assists, 4 rebounds, and 2 steals. Smart looks great and had a ton of confidance for playing that deep into a double overtime game as Rajon Rondo sat in the third quarter and never came back.

In the post-game interview, Wall was very emotional about the loss of his friend, 6 year old Miyah Telemaque-Nelson to cancer.

John Wall Forever.

Avery Bradley “Find the monster, are you the monster? Find the mirror, are you the mirror? Monster-Mirror. Repeat.”

Tyler Zeller “Enjoy the fireworks of your mind, but do not set the fuse. You are the match.”

Rajon Rondo “Liberate your mystic self that you drowned as a child. Give him a balloon, watch him fly, then shoot the balloon.”

Marcus Smart“You were a cowboy. You are now an elbow.”
