Twitter mocks Rajon Rondo’s Velcro shoes
Rajon Rondo was the subject of jokes on Twitter for the shoes he wore to the Celtics’ game on Sunday.
The Celtics retired Paul Pierce’s jersey following the team’s game against the Cavaliers. Many of Pierce’s former teammates were in attendance. Antoine Walker, Kevin Garnett, and Rajon Rondo were among those at TD Garden for the festivities. The latter had an interesting choice footwear.
Rondo showed up in a pair of white shoes with Velcro strips.

What followed was Rondo being heavily mocked. Many felt the shoes were more suited for someone considerably older.
