Shook Ankles: Rajon Rondo’s Mistakes Are Better Than Your Best Effort

Rajon Rondo is so quick, so fluid and “one” with the basketball. After adjusting to the obligatory space Mo Williams provides for that oft-maligned jump shot by crossing left to right and then back to the left, he almost turns it over. In fact, 9.9 times out of 10, a basketball player would do just that—fly right past the ball, letting their feet get ahead of their mind. But thanks to those massive first base glove hands and the intuitiveness to know where a basketball is headed even when it isn’t touching his body, Rondo proudly represents that 0.1 minority. The right handed kiss from the left side of the basket makes this simple three point play a fine brush stroke within the game’s well crafted body of art.
