If you didn’t watch the game last night, then you missed two magestic ball fakes by Rajon Rondo that left Milwaukee wondering to where on earth the basketball had disappeared. The first victim was John Salmons. Salmons almost got whiplash looking for the ball, before finally realizing, “Damn it. Rondo still has the ball, and I look like a damn fool. FML.”
Next was Ersan Ilyasova. Not only was he fooled by Rondo’s patended fake-behind-the-back move, but he looked like even more of an idiot because he was in a hurry to close out to Rasheed Wallace at the three-point line. In a hurry to close out to Rasheed Wallace. Note to Ersan: Stick with Rajon next time.
The most underrated part of the highlight was Bill Raftery’s commentary. Shocking, really, that he announced a Celtics game. Even more shocking that he described Rondo’s fake as “a little globey.”
