The Philippines got Rondod in a good way.
This summer Rondo is touring cities in Asia as part of the Red Bull Basketball Clinics.
On Tuesday he made a stop at the The Playground, located at the Ronac Art Center in San Juan City, and hosted an hour-long clinic with 15 athletes. At the conclusion of the clinic, Rondo held a Q&A session with the players and assisting coaches.
The participants were selected from the Juniors (high school) and Seniors (college) teams from the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA).
Later that day, Rondo tweeted a picture of his dinner in Manila.

The New York Knicks arrive in Boston tonight with the accompanying "Melo-drama" of Carmelo Anthony's disintegrating relationship with team president Phil Jackson.
Anthony would have to waive his no-trade clause to leave New York and Boston has been an oft-rumored destination.
On "The Toucher and Rich Show", the longtime voice of the Celtics, Mike Gorman, said he hopes it doesn't happen.
"I don't get it. I don't see it," Gorman said. "He's a ball stopper. One of the things that always intrigued me about Carmelo is when he's played with Team USA or an Olympic team, often he's the best player. Then you go and see him in a regular-season game and you say, 'Oh no, no."'
