BOSTON-Shaquille O’Neal has blamed President Barack Obama for Boston Celtics’ point guard, Rajon Rondo’s shooting troubles and confidence.
O’Neal claims that Obama made fun of his shooting ability during a fund raiser where they met the President in his book “Shaq UnCut.”
The Huffington Post reports:
The President turns to Ray, points at Rondo, and says, “Hey, Ray, why don’t you teach this kid how to shoot?” Everyone starts laughing.
KG told me he saw the look on Rondo’s face and the kid was devastated, embarrassed. Dissed by the President, even though I’m sure Obama didn’t mean any harm. Rondo smiled and went along with all of it, but KG told me he could see it in his eyes. It bothered Rondo. It killed him.
Shaq went on to write that Rondo “shot the ball horribly” the next day and he “stopped taking shots after that.”
