Rajon Rondo sighting, arrest, Lakers-Nuggets: Coaches up Anthony Davis
Former NBA player Rajon Rondo was arrested in Indiana for firearm and drug charges. Lakers fans are still rooting for him.
Former NBA player Rajon Rondo was recently arrested in Indiana on firearm and drug-related charges. The incident occurred when he was pulled over by a state trooper after reports of a black car driving recklessly. The 2008 NBA champion was driving a black 2022 Tesla at the time. The police officer then conducted a search of the vehicle after reportedly smelling marijuana and found marijuana, drug paraphernalia, and a firearm. Rondo also had a juvenile with him at the time of the arrest, who was later released to a family member.
Rondo is now facing misdemeanor charges and was booked at the Jackson County jail before being released on bond. He is scheduled to appear in court at a later date. Despite these legal troubles, Rondo was recently spotted at the Crypto.com Arena.
Rondo was part of the 2020 championship-winning LA Lakers team led by LeBron James and Anthony Davis. He is also known for being one of the smartest players in NBA history, with teammates and opponents alike praising his basketball IQ and savvy. He was seen engaging in a conversation with Davis, likely discussing something he observed in the game.
Meanwhile, Darvin Ham, a prominent figure in the Lakers organization, has faced scrutiny due to the team's inconsistent performance. After winning the NBA In-Season Tournament, the Lakers have struggled, leading to calls for Ham's firing. Some have suggested bolstering the coaching staff with experienced individuals like Terry Stotts and Rajon Rondo.
Despite Rondo's legal issues, fans of the Lakers are pleased to see him caring for his former teammates, although it is unlikely that the team will become involved with him given the situation.
