If you're a millionaire and celebrating your birthday, you can do it in a lot worse places than the city of Los Angeles. That's what Boston Celtics' point guard Rajon Rondo did this past weekend when he turned 28 on Saturday.
Instead of accompanying the team from Los Angeles to Sacramento for Saturday's game, Rondo opted to stay in LA and miss attending the game against the Kings. He wasn't going to play in the game against the Kings anyway, because it was the second night of a back-to-back and he's still working his way back from his ACL tear. There's one little problem with that: He apparently didn't have permission from the team to skip the trip to Sacramento.
The story should be that the Celtics front office were kinda douchey and didnt give Rajon Rondo permission to skip a meaningless game (in a meaningless season) on his birthday. But the media just loves to shit on Rajon Rondo.
Seriously, if the Celtics were in contention I might be bullshit right now. But Ive accepted the fact that this is a throwaway season. Everyone else should too.
