Rajon Rondo Loves The Philippines

Imagine how many assists I could average with 3 balls!

Just like CelticsBlog, Rajon Rondo loves the Philippines.

Rajon Rondo Dishes on His Current and Future Status with the Boston Celtics | Bleacher Report

B/R: You talked about being interested in the basketball culture in the Philippines. I was wondering: What made you interested in that culture?

RR: Just common sense. The fans are crazy there. It’s unbelievable how many Celtic fans are there, how many Rondo fans are there. They bleed basketball. It’s like being home in Boston, but kinda on steroids. Population of about 93 million, and they show a lot of love. A lot of fans understood the game of basketball, and I think they could relate to me because I'm not the biggest guy on the court, but I play with a lot of heart.

I also enjoyed the story about him playing basketball in his sandals.

As I grew up, I played in sandals. I played in flip-flops all the time back in the day. That's why I didn't really care about spraining my ankles. When I first started in the NBA, I loved low-cuts. I can play (in them), because I used to grow up playing in flip-flops all the time.

My ankles hurt just thinking about that and I now have an irresistible urge to run down to the court and tape his ankles for him personally before each game.
