Rajon Rondo is one of the true point guards left in the game and he is executing ferocious tenacity with a stellar ability to run the court in his first year (of a one year contract) with the Sacramento Kings. His double-double a night stat line consist of 11.8 PPG, 11.9 APG and 6.5 RPG. Currently he’s leading the league—by a considerable margin—in assists, sitting at a full...

Rajon Rondo Throws Down Massive Dunk, Crash Lands On Court (Video)

The Sacramento Kings guard took an outlet pass from center DeMarcus Cousins in Wednesday’s 112-93 win over the Los Angeles Lakers, and he proceeded to lay down a one-handed slam over Ryan Kelly. However, the landing didn’t look as nice as the dunk. This embed is invalid...

Rajon Rondo: ‘Nothing but love’ for the Mavericks

When the Dallas Mavericks traded for All-Star point guard Rajon Rondo, they sold out for success in 2014-15. When the experiment failed, both parties moved on after a wildly unsuccessful five-month relationship.

WATCH: Rajon Rondo throws down one-handed dunk
