Cleveland Cavs guard Rajon Rondo has made an NBA career out of doing the unexpected. Rondo’s wizardry as a passer made it seem like he had eyes in the back of his head. However, the veteran Cavs guard has also been known for his savvy play both on and off the court, as evidenced by this cheat code move that he has pulled multiple times in his career. Rondo has walked into or right behind other teams’ huddles right when they’re discussing plays. It’s a move that only he has been known for, until recently. New York Knicks forward Julius Randle attempted to pull the Cavs guard’s cheat code move, but it backfired on him, as reported by the NY Daily News.
Julius Randle admitted his practice of sneaking a glance at the other team’s playbook led to his first technical – and eventual ejection – Wednesday against the Grizzlies.
“I do it all the time, when coming out of timeout, I try to, I guess, cheat almost and see what the other team is running,” Randle said. “And I kind of snuck over there to their bench to try to see what was on the board.”
Knicks forward Julius Randle channeled his inner Rajon Rondo on Wednesday against the Memphis Grizzlies, but it backfired and led to a technical foul and ejection from the contest. Not only did Randle admit to stealing a play out of Rondo’s playbook but he also admitted this is a tactic he has tried in the past before.
The NBA now needs to watch out for Knicks forward Julius Randle as a play-stealer after he channeled his inner Rajon Rondo on Wednesday.
