GIF: Rajon Rondo Throws Multiple Fakes, Finds Chandler Parsons For Trey

Rajon Rondo

Opponents have scouted Rajon Rondo’s signature fake behind-the-back pass enough these days that it only works nine times out of 10. Fortunately for the Dallas Mavericks, their point guard has many other dekes in his arsenal to deploy when his favorite one falters. Watch Rondo show off his playmaking wizardry by holding the ball and manipulating the Memphis Grizzlies’ defense with a series fakes before finding a wide open Chandler Parsons for three.

GIF: Rajon Rondo’s Trademark Behind-The-Back Pass Fake For The Layup

Rajon Rondo fake

Those hands. Those gigantic Rajon Rondo hands that look like something out of a Steven Speilberg daydream than actual phalanges. That’s how Rondo is able to palm the ball off the dribble. It’s also why the behind-the-back pass fake he unleashed on the T-Wolves last night will continue to be his bread-and-butter ball-fake even if it punctuates the highlight tapes for everyone else.

Dirk Nowitzki & Rajon Rondo Say DeMarcus Cousins Deserves An All-Star Nod

DeMarcus Cousins

After DeMarcus Cousins dropped a near triple-double on them last night in Sacramento — and may have won it for the Kings if not for amateur thespian, Tyson Chandler, the Mavs breathed a sigh of relief. They also made it clear they appreciated how good Boogie has become, and — despite how deep the field is this year — both Rajon Rondo and Dirk Nowitzki say he deserves to be elected to his very first All-Star game.

Report: Mavs To Get “First Word,” But Rajon Rondo Will Explore Free Agency

Rajon Rondo

The Dallas Mavericks took a risk when trading for Rajon Rondo. Not only has the former All-Star been a shell of his elite self over the past two seasons, but he’s also a free agent once 2014-2015 comes to a close. With the existing possibility of Rondo failing to regain his past form and no assurance that he’d re-sign in Dallas this summer, Mark Cuban and company gambled bigger than most league followers seem to comprehend. And though the Mavs’ most recent play with Rondo in tow has vastly improved after a rocky start, there’s still no guarantee he’ll be donning blue and silver for any coming seasons. According to a new report, Rondo will give Dallas the “first word” come July but will also explore other free agency options. Read More »

The Dallas Mavericks haven’t been themselves since acquiring Rajon Rondo. But it’s plays like this that make it easy to believe Rick Carlisle’s team will be even better than that once its new point guard gets fully acclimated. Watch Rondo make the Washington Wizards defense looks silly with a show-and-go followed by a ball-fake and acrobatic reverse layup. Read More »
