Yes, we’ve all seen Playoff Rondo. But have you all seen Quarantine Rondo? Los Angeles Lakers guard Rajon Rondo is ripped!
The 16-year vet showcased his new quarantine bod as the Lakers are slowly beginning their preparations for the restart of the 2019-20 NBA regular season. It seems that Rondo was isolated in the gym for the past few months of quarantine.

This has definitely gotten Lakers fans a tad bit more excited for July 30.
The 34-year-old playmaker is arguably in the best shape of his career as he aims to earn his second NBA title with the Lakers. Rajon Rondo has been quite an efficient option for the Purple and Gold this season, averaging 7.1 points, 3.0 rebounds and 5.0 assists per game. While these numbers aren’t the usual Rondo numbers fans are used to, the four-time All Star has proven that he is a reliable option off the bench for the team.
Rondo has had quite the journey in his long tenure in the NBA. After spending his first eight seasons with the Boston Celtics, the point guard was shipped from team to team before eventually finding his way to Los Angeles in 2018. Last year, Rondo re-signed with the Lakers as he looks to prove that he’s not done yet.
The Lakers are coming into the NBA bubble in Orlando as one of the favorites to win it all, being the top seed in the Western Conference. By the looks of it, Rondo seems to be locked and loaded to give LeBron James and Anthony Davis all the help they need.
LA’s first assignment in Orlando would be against city rivals Los Angeles Clippers in what is expected to be a preview of the Western Conference Finals. Hopefully, Bubble Rondo shows up and doesn’t disappoint.
