Attention little old ladies, basketball superstar Paul Pierce is looking for your kids … for Sports Illustrated’s annual SportsKid of the Year contest. The nomination form can be found here. Ok, can we discuss this commercial? Can’t decide if it’s hilarious or ridiculous. Him catching the baseball and yelling “photosynthesis” is pretty ridiculous, but his nerd outfit and tall-man-in-a-little-coat bits are pretty hilarious. Judge for yourself …

Rajon Rondo Sports Illustrated Cover

Rajon Rondo graces the cover of this week's Sports Illustrated.

Sports Illustrated columnist Ian Thomsen appeared on the Dale & Holley show Wednesday afternoon to discuss Rajon Rondo, the Celtics-Magic series, and the future for LeBron James.

When asked about any rift that may have existed between Rondo and his teammates, Thomsen said, “I think they like him now because he’s so darn good. They appreciate now the stubbornness and the pride he has, because he backs it up. I have a feeling a lot of whatever tension was there, it was all about basketball. And look, you don’t get to act like you’re this good until you show us you’re this good, and now he’s shown it and he’s getting paid the way they’re getting paid.”

It was all about Rondo, and I went up to Joel Glass [the PR guy for the Magic] after the last game in their locker room after they won, and I said, “Sorry, I obviously couldn’t get Jameer into the story.” He said, “That’s OK, just put Rondo on the cover,” and I said, “Well we are putting him on the cover,” and the guy was rejoiced and he was shouting to everybody in the locker room, “Hey they’re putting Rondo on the cover, they killed Shaq [O'Neal] two weeks ago and now we’re going to kill Rondo.” It’s supposed to be one of the great honors in sports, and it’s kind of like a double-edged sword.
