ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Boston point guard Rajon Rondo has always been a bit unconventional, both on the court and off. As a player, he consistently posts huge stat lines and eye-popping numbers, despite coming into the League without much a jump shot. And off the court, Rondo doesn’t seem to care much about managing his image the way many other athletes do — Rondo just wants to play ball and win games.
Rondo tore his ACL last season, and since then he’s been watching games from the bench, occasionally with eye-popping results. He’s also used Twitter, sparingly, until a tweet last night that set people guessing…

What was Rondo referring to? Well, if you do the math, 29,233,380 seconds works out to about 338 days. On Friday night, the Celtics host the Lakers, and if you count backward from tip time on Friday, 338 days is the length of time to when Rondo suffered his injury. According to ESPN Boston, it’s actually the exact amount of time from the actual surgery, which took place at 11:07 AM.
