The Miami Heat and the Boston Celtics flat out do not like each other, that’s for sure. Kevin Garnett ignored Ray Allen last night in the season opener, then Rajon Rondo got into it with Dwyane Wade at the end of the game.
Prior to the game, Rajon Rondo took a picture with a Boston fan. Nothing out of the ordinary here, right? The humorous thing is what the fan was wearing, and that Rondo still had no problem taking the picture with her, knowing it would go viral.
To be totally honest, this is hysterical. Rondo loves pushing buttons, especially when it comes to the Miami Heat.
That being said, he usually backs up his words when it comes to playing the Heat. He steps up his already All-Star level game to a new level, particularly in the playoffs. He had an unbelievable playoff series in the Eastern Conference Finals last season, including a game where he dropped 44 points in a Boston loss.
Even in last night’s game, Rajon Rondo filled up the stat sheet with 20 points on 9-14 shooting, 13 assists, and 7 rebounds. The Heat got the win, but there’s no doubt that Rondo earns the right to punk the Heat a little bit.
You might remember the video below that was sure to get under the skin of some Heat players:
This looks to be another season of an intense Celtics-Heat rivalry, particularly if Rondo keeps it up. Game on.
