Rajon Rondo did not play in the Boston Celtics’ season finale against the Washington Wizards on Wednesday, but the star point guard still managed to make a loud statement with his footwear. A day after the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombings, Rondo wore sneakers that paid tribute to the victims.
The shoes, which Rondo said he was donating to the One Fund after the game, featured the initials of victims written across the sides and top. They also had the date of the attack — April 15, 2013 — and “Boston Strong” etched across the tongue in the form of a runner’s number.
Hat’s off to Rondo. Awesome tribute.
