Rondo: 'I should have took the layup'

Sometimes things just happen in a ballgame. Rondo slipped when he got the pass. As KG said, "ballgame."

Rondo: 'I should have took the layup' - Boston Celtics Blog - ESPN Boston

Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo lamented his decision to pull up for a baseline jumper on the final possession of overtime, admitting he likely had enough time and space to complete a potential winning layup. Instead, Rondo airballed an off-balance 16-foot jumper at the buzzer, allowing the Philadelphia 76ers to escape with a 95-94 overtime triumph at the Wells Fargo Center. "I should have took the layup," said Rondo. "I tried to make a plant and just slipped."

I wonder if his indecision to shoot or drive led to the slip. Sometimes that momentary doubt is enough to throw you off balance.

Oh well. Woulda, coulda, shoulda.
