In the NBA Playoffs, teams do whatever they can to gain a competitive advantage. Maybe you've got Drake sitting courtside talking smack to John Wall to throw him off his game (or even challenging Kendrick Perkins to a fight). Maybe you buy all your teammates matching suits in a sign of unity. Or maybe, if you're Rajon Rondo, you get you sweat all over the basketball before a member of the opposing team takes free throws.
Rajon Rondo wiping his sweat all over the ball before Draymond attempted his second free throw gotta be the pettiest thing ive ever seen pic.twitter.com/AoKkBPAXJr — Rob Perez (@World_Wide_Wob) May 2, 2018
In the waning seconds of the 4th quarter of the New Orleans Pelicans' second round matchup with the Golden State Warriors, Draymond Green stepped to the line for two free throws. Rondo and Green had been going at it all night, but Rondo took it to another level when he grabbed the ball after Green's first free throw and rubbed it all over his forehead. You know much sweat was coming off dude's forehead at that point in the game? Gross.
Rondo's pettiness knows no bounds.
