HIGHLIGHT: Paul Pierce does the Rajon Rondo

Paul Pierce left the Boston Celtics this summer after sixteen years with the franchise, the last seven with mercurial but sorcerous point guard Rajon Rondo. Rondo’s known for a variety of moves and abilities, but likely none more common than his famous fake, palming the ball behind his back as a fake to shift the defender backwards before slithering past, usually for a layup.

Rondo didn’t invent the Rondo, he only popularized it. So Pierce, now with the Nets, probably didn’t learn the Rondo from Rondo. But he still pulled off a hell of a Rondo against the Dallas Mavericks. Watch above.
