For those who missed the late-night hijinks, Chandler Tyson and Rajon Rondo engaged in an online scavenger hunt for the Jimmy Kimmel Show.
With surprising good grace and good humor, the two NBA superstars were faced with causing their own embarrassment.
According to the rules, the players were to run around their own little crib and find items that Mr. Kimmel named. First back with said item would win a round.
Since both men are living in palacial splendor, the empty chairs in which they sat were clearly belonging to the Louis XIV collection, chosen by their decorators.
First item up: the latest item they were reading. To our surprise neither came back with a graphic novel or the comics.
Rondo seemed only to reach over to the nearby coffee table to pick up The Other Wes Moore (in softcover, no e-books), a fascinating book about two men with the same name: one a convicted murderer and the other a White House aide.
Alas, Tyson seemed to take quite a while to find a biography of Jerry West with uncut pages. Point to Rondo.
Second item: the men were required to bring to the camera an item that would cause embarrassment and consternation if their teammates saw it.
Chandler returned immediately with what looked like a porcelain piggy bank he found at a flea market. Rondo took longer, but returned with a red old-fashioned phone that looked like the hotline used by JFK during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Point to Chandler.
Finally, both men were required to locate a wig in their home and come to the camera wearing it. Tyson seemed to show immediate consternation and exasperation. Rondo sat in stunned dismay for a few seconds.
Quickly returning in a towel, Chandler decided he had something better-and ran off again. Rondo came back wearing a garish plastic shower hat. When Tyson returned, he wore a woman's hair extender. Point to Tyson.
We couldn't make this stuff up.
