Rajon Rondo is up to his Rajon Rondo ways again.
The former Kentucky Wildcats star and current Pelicans guard, who is known for a pretty fiery personality on the court, was ejected from an NBPA Top 100 Camp game that he was coaching on Friday.
Might be a first. Coach Rajon Rondo kicked out of game at #NBPATop100 . Gonna be interesting,to see how much time and manpower it will take to get him out of gym.— Jerry Meyer (@jerrymeyer247) June 15, 2018
While I haven’t found an official record of NBPA Top 100 Camp ejections, I can’t imagine this has happened before (a few Twitter searches turned up nothing), which might have been why the official was unsuccessful in actually kicking Rondo out of the gym.
Not a big confidence builder for an aspiring NBA official to emphatically toss Coach Rajon Rondo from the gym and he just goes behind the bench and works on his dribbling while yukking it up with his team.— Jerry Meyer (@jerrymeyer247) June 15, 2018
Rondo’s team has certainly lit up the social media highlight reels, and that’s helped by the fact that Anthony Edwards is on his team. Edwards is a five-star shooting guard and is ranked the No. 16 player in the 2020 class.

I’m not sure what the protocol is here for the Top 100 Camp. Does Rondo serve a suspension? Does he pay a fine? This is truly new territory for the camp.
