Rajon Rondo tried to tug down Wes Johnson’s shorts from the bench
This isn’t exactly J.R. Smith untying guys shoes at the free throw line, but it certainly is distracting.
Watch this Vine, posted online by @ColeyMick, showing the Kings’ Rajon Rondo on the bench reaching out and gently tugging at the Clippers’ Wesley Johnson’s shorts during play.
This wasn’t a full “going for the pantsing” tug, but it is distracting. I think it’s funny, too.
Plenty of little stuff like this has gone on for decades (and longer) on the court, but in an age of every game being broadcast, combined with social media, we see more of it now than ever. I don’t expect the league will fine Rondo for this, more likely he gets a call saying “if you do this again...” and then they wait and see.
The Clippers beat the Kings 114-109 behind 37 points from Blake Griffin. Rondo had 21 points on 9-of-17 shooting, plus eight assists to lead the Kings.
