By now be you a basketball fan or not youve probably heard about Rajon Rondo dislocating his elbow after professional tool and sidekick Dwayne Wade pulled Rondo down to the parquet.

Just seeing that video gives us a cold chill up the spine. The still frame is maybe even worse.

Shudders

There was talk that Rondo wouldnt return for the rest of the series, let alone return to the game.

And yet...

What a stud.

Regardless of sport, this is the type of player Boston loves tough, competitive and gives it his all every shift. Its why Shawn Thornton is so beloved and why Teddy Bruschi was also shown much love in New England. And its a reason why Rondo is also a fan favorite.

There still remains a huge cloud around how Rondo could return and be so effective after Wade went all MMA submission hold on him. Luckily WickedGoodSports is full of former CIA agents. Heres what our crackpot team found.

First off, the Celtics medical staff brought Rondo into a secret laboratory deep within the bowels of the Boston Garden.

Then they called in the leading scientist in bionic and cybernetic technology, who they just happened to have on hand that night.

The medical staff and Dr. Inspector Gadget worked tirelessly and quickly to create an artificial arm and hand worthy of a three point throwing champ.

They woke Rondo and let him try out his new and improved arm.

He conquered.

Brown apologizes for 'distraction' caused by Facebook Live video

Brown apologizes for 'distraction' caused by Facebook Live video

Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown posted an apology on social media Tuesday night for his Facebook Live video that has caused a stir over the last few days.

"I let my emotions and genuine excitement get the best of me, and I wanted to share that moment with our fans," said Brown in a statement on his Twitter. ""It was wrong of me to do, against team and NFL policy, and I have apologized to Coach Tomlin and my teammates for my actions.

"I'm sorry to them for letting it become a distraction and something that they've had to answer questions about while we're preparing for a big game on Sunday."

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday that he has “absolutely no worries on the video's effect" on Sunday's game against the Patriots, but it was "selfish and inconsiderate" of his star wide receiver.

Brown could still be fined for violating the league's social-media policy. The policy states that players, coaches and football operations personnel are banned from using social media on game days 90 minutes before kickoff, during games, and before "traditional media interviews."
