Video: Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is absolutely terrified of the glass floor at CN Tower
6-foot-6 swingman Rondae Hollis-Jefferson appears to have adjusted well to life with the Toronto Raptors. After signing with the defending champs last summer as a free agent, RHJ has been a reliable source of quality minutes off the bench.
As it turns out, though, one thing that Hollis-Jefferson has not gotten accustomed to is Toronto’s famed landmark, the CN Tower, and the dizzying glass floor at the top of the 147-story building:

That’s a pretty hilarious sight to watch, but it probably wouldn’t be as funny if you were the one facing a 500-meter drop. This is especially the case for folks who have fear of heights — something that Hollis-Jefferson appears to possess himself.
As for his basketball, however, the 25-year-old has been a steady force for the Raptors for the most part of the season. Hollis-Jefferson is currently averaging 8.6 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 0.9 steals in 20.4 minutes per game off the bench.
After spending the first four years of his career with the Brooklyn Nets, the former 23rd overall pick signed with the Raptors in the offseason as a free agent on a one-year, $2.5 million deal. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has pretty much assumed the same role (and production rate) with the Raptors and is now looking to sign a more substantial deal this upcoming summer.
That deal could be with the Raptors or it could be elsewhere, but if he stays in Toronto, one has to think he won’t be making regular trips to the CN Tower.
