Tweets, tweets, everywhere, but not a friend to be had. In an age when tweeting wins you more followers than friends, Celtic leader Rajon Rondo wants to be alone.
In an effort to meet the high standards of his favorite role model, Greta Garbo, Rajon Rondo admitted this week he was friendless.
This is no mean feat in an age when people on Facebook have thousands of friends they never met.
Rondo gave an interview in which he admitted that he did not have time for friends, and likely we presume the old “vice versa” applies.
Despite his unfriendly demeanor, we still love Rajon, but he will always hold us at arm’s length, if not further away.
Ever since his beloved Kendrick Perkins was sent into exile by the mean forces of the universe, Rondo has been a man alone. His time is spent with angles and arcs of basketball passes. His worthwhile time is given over to finding better ways to score than to find better ways to smell the roses.
Rondo is unapologetic about his unfriendly smile. He told ESPN, “There’s no friends on the court.”
If you think Rondo has a face only his mother could love, you would be wrong. He admits if he played against his mother he would still go out and try to beat her.
This may lead a few to think Rondo needs a dog. As he noted, he does not talk to other players during the offseason, and he sees no need to talk to them on the court.
We fear that if Rondo had a dog, he would toss the dog a bone and race him to see who would get it first.
