The latest NBA athlete to branch out to alternate sneaker brands is Rajon Rondo who has reportedly signed a contract with Chinese company Anta. Rondo was previously a part of Nike but opted to join Anta, joining former teammate Kevin Garnett.
The first shoe release appears to be the Anta Rondo 1 which sports the traditional Celtics colors of white and green. The sneaker might be hard to obtain in the United States, but it is refreshing to see athletes explore new brands. Let us know if you are a fan of Rondo's upcoming shoe?
Last year Rajon Rondo got into a heated shoving match with Kris Humphries, who was on the Brooklyn Nets at the time. Now that the two are teammates in Boston, the guys in the locker room have jokingly started a poll to vote on who would win in a fight: Rondo or Humphries.
There is something posted in the locker room that says "Rondo and Hump" where the players can tally their votes.
