Rajon Rondo has unreal explanation for supposed trip
Rajon Rondo was caught on video appearing to trip an opponent during Friday night’s playoff game between the Celtics and Bulls, and his explanation will blow you away.
The Chicago point guard, who is out with a thumb injury, was asked about the attempted trip after the game. His explanation was that he was just stretching out:

Here’s video of the trip. It’s interesting that he didn’t even deny it.
Rondo’s Bulls lost the game 104-87 but still lead the series 2-1. We’ll see if the league buys his explanation or if they end up fining him instead.
