Lakers vet Rajon Rondo’s hilarious US Open cameo is an instant meme
Rajon Rondo might be one of the newest members of the Los Angeles Lakers, but he recently took a trip to New York City to enjoy the festivities of the 2021 US Open. The cameras caught the veteran point guard in the audience and Rondo’s brief cameo has the makings of the next internet meme.
Here’s a look at Rondo nonchalantly applauding during one of the matches:

The Lakers veteran had his feet up and was clearly enjoying his time. He was even munching on what looks like some white cheddar popcorn. It was actually because of his mid-game snack that caused him to applaud in such an odd and hilarious manner. However, it was Rondo’s blank facial expression that takes the cake in this hilarious moment caught on tape.
One random user on Twitter decided to invoke Dumbeldore from the famed Harry Potter saga as he/she tried to make sense of Rondo’s unique clapping technique:

Rajon Rondo has been on his fair share of memes in the past, so it wouldn’t be surprising if this one ends up as the newest addition to his growing résumé.
It looks like Rondo is taking a bit of time off ahead of the new season. He recently opened up about what he believes he must do to help the Lakers achieve their goals in 2021-22, and it’s clear that he’s going to be a key piece for LA this coming year.
