ATLANTA - The Boston Celtics lost game five of their playoff series with the Atlanta Hawks 87-86 on a Rajon Rondo turnover.
After the game "Double R" was waiting in a hallway to attend the mandatory, post-game, media room interview.
Rondo mingled with family members, Celtic representatives, a hot dog vendor, three Atlanta Hawks cheerleaders, and his traveling anger management therapist.
A sports photographer identified as Gillespie "Rum & Coke" Beanbiggle with The Pensacola Post Proselytizer aimed his camera at the Celtic hot head and within .3 seconds Rondo ascended on the cameraman like Wynonna Judd jumping on a freshly baked piece of cornbread.
He hollered out that he was prohibited from shooting video of him on account of The Post Game Sports Video Shooting Act of 1997.
The photographer shouted back that the particular act had been amended in 2003 and now only pertained to the NFL and not to the NBA.
Rondo became very angry and according to Rufus Reno with Sports Balls Illustrated Weekly actually started talking in tongues.
Reno said that it was not a pretty sight and noted that one of the two cheerleaders and the hot dog vendor immediately left the hallway with a tremendous look of fear on their faces.
Rondo pleaded with the photos to stop shooting. When asked why Rondo meekly replied, "Because I don't want for anyone to see me wearing this jacket which my anger management therapist just informed me is so awfully hideous that I could possibly get fined for wearing it.
The photographer started laughing. He turned off his camera, gave Rondo a high five and left whistling the Lynyrd Skynyrd song "Sweet Home Alabama."
SIDENOTE: NBA commissioner David Stern saw the video on ESPN and he has in fact decided to issue Rajon Rondo with a $15,000 fine. He stated that Rondo has extremely embarrassed the National Basketball Association by having the unmitigated gall to wear one of the most disgustingly atrocious and dreadfully repulsive looking jackets in the entire history of the civilized world. Stern noted that the jacket looks like it was made out of skin from a zebra, a giraffe, a panther, a chupacabra, and a school of sardines.
