While it remains to be seen when Rajon Rondo will return to the court for the Boston Celtics, the point guard is not letting his recovery from an ACL injury slow him down this offseason.
This summer Rondo has made multiple appearances in the community, on television, and has been spotted by fans on social media. Get a glimpse into what the point guard has been up to over the past few months.
May: Rondo takes risks on the court and is no different with his sense of style. In May he was a guest on E!'s "Fashion Police" with Joan Rivers where he discussed his previous internship at GQ, basketball, and his now teammate Kris Humphries (with whom he scuffled last season) among other topics.
Rondo's fashion was also put under the spotlight when he had to select an article of clothing for the panel to decide if he should "stash it or trash it." He chose a black-and-white-striped jacket he wore during the 2012 playoffs which the panel ruled he should toss. Following his appearance Rondo tweeted a photo of himself with Rivers.
June: Rondo returned to late-night TV with another appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live." The point guard participated in the "Fun with Fans" segment to help prank an autograph seeker who was covered in hand sanitizer, paper towels, and a protective mask after being told Rondo had a cold and was a germaphobe. Last summer Rondo was on the receiving end of Kimmel's humor when he competed in a scavenger hunt against the New York Knicks Tyson Chandler via Skype.
July: Last month he hosted his annual Camp Rondo in his hometown in Kentucky. Rondo instructed drills, spoke to campers, and of course competed in his favorite game, Connect Four.
August: On Sunday, Rondo worked with Louisville-based Blessings in a Backpack to help students prepare for the upcoming school year.
“Great to partner today with #blessingsinabackpack giving away food and school supplies,” he tweeted with a photo. The mission of the organization is to ensure impoverished elementary school children are fed on the weekends during the school year.
Earlier in the month a fan tweeted a photo with Rondo in Indiana.
