Rondo airballs a layup : Rubio can pass the rock

Published on December 28, 2011 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

The Boston Celtics are off to a 0 and 2 and in last night’s loss to the Miami Heat one player had a very embarrassing moment.

Celtics Rajon Rondo is one of the best point guards in the NBA. Rondo excels at attacking the rim and passing the ball; he is not a shooter.

In Tuesday’s game against the Heat Kevin Garnett gave Rondo a perfect outlet pass that gave Rondo a clear lane to the basket. As Rondo was about to lay it in he saw Miami’s Dwyane Wade at the last second. This caused Rondo to hurry his shot, and he air balled a layup attempt. What a embarrassing moment for Rondo. This overshadowed his near triple double on the night. For the game he finished with 22 points, 12 assists, and 8 rebounds.

Check out the video attempt of Rondo’s layup below.

Ricky Rubio will likely not score a ton of points on most nights, but he will likely wow you with this passing ability every night.

In Rubio’s debut with the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night he wowed fans with his flare. He only played 26 minutes and compiled 6 assists in that time. Most of his assists were of the flashy type.

Rubio has great vision but sometimes he tries to force stuff. Rubio is just learning the NBA game coming over from Spain. He will only get better as the season goes on. Look for him to start in the future.

See all his passes from Monday night below.
