Rajon Rondo cannot watch movies with plot holes

Thursday April 9th, 2015

Rajon Rondo is one of the NBA's most interesting characters, when he is not throwing insane passes on the court, he is taking public transportation to games, or destroying people in Connect Four.

Rondo shared another personality quirk with ESPN recently when talking about learning to communicate with teammates when he revealed that he frequently walks out of movies when a plot hole presents itself.

His last theater walkout: The Equalizer, starring Denzel Washington. "I didn't understand how he got the cop's number," Rondo says, referencing a certain scene. "It was just too much." He recently watched the movie again to see if he could stomach it. He couldn't.

The whole story gives a fascinating look into Rondo's life and how his intelligence helps him on the court while complicating his relationships with coaches and teammates.
