Rondo is currently on his Asian tour for the Red Bull King of the Rock in Taiwan and Hong Kong. He posted the above video with the report that he's having a good time in Taiwan. We know that he's a good passer, and now he's getting the chance to show that he's a good catcher. Hopefully he's careful because I remember Larry Bird playing softball in the offseason and messing up his finger pretty seriously while doing so. But, he's also there to meet with young basketball players and work with them in a training session where he encouraged them that there are no shortcuts on the basketball court and that the best way to become a great player is to "keep practicing."
Rondo is also making a stop in the Philippines on August 28 and 29 where he will spend time with young college players of the UAAP and the NCAA in the Red Bull Skills Clinic on Tuesday. On Wednesday, Rondo will lead Red Bull's local court refurbishing project at the San Juan National High School. Let's hope he's also working on his jumper along the way.
