The Chicago Bulls hosted the Boston Celtics on Monday night and noticeably absent from the floor was Rajon Rondo.
The Celtics don’t feel any need to overwork Rondo in the final weeks of the season considering they’re playing for pride, so Rondo has been taking occasional games off. He did such on Monday night and being the gracious guy that he is, stopped by the Celtics broadcast to do an interview.
That’s when Chicago Bulls mascot ‘Benny the Bull’ noticed the former Kentucky guard sitting at the broadcast table and made his way over – complete with a giant bag of popcorn.
The Bulls mascot stood over Rondo as he attempted to do the television thing, continually spilling popcorn as it rained down upon Rondo.
I was waiting for Benny to simply unload the giant popcorn trash bag onto Rondo, but thankfully he thought better of it and walked away. Still made for some hilarious TV though.
Even looked as if Rondo had a good time over it given his laughs and smiles.
