Rajon Rondo Faster Than Your Average NFL Running Back?

Gino's JungleContributor IDecember 1, 2009

Rajon Rondo is that quiet, yet cocky point guard that plays for the Boston Celtics. We all know that he is good, and can single handily take over basketball games. But is he really as fast as an NFL running back? Well apparently he thinks so, yesterday Chris Johnson (Running Back for the Tennesse Titans) tweeted that he got a call from his “bradda”, Marquis Daniels (@lambo6), saying that Rondo wanted to challenge Johnson in a race. Here is the official tweet from Johnson:

“My bradda @lambo6 called me and said they point guard rondo want to race me for 2k that’s easy money set it up on espn”

During the 2008 scouting combine Johnson ran a 40 yard dash in 4.24, good for the fastest time during that year’s combine, and 18th fastest time ever. We all know how quick Rondo is on the court but can he really compete with a guy who’s job is to run fast? Not just fast, VERY fast. Rondo however claims that he can run the 40 yard dash in the same time that he went coast to coast for a layup against the Jazz earlier this season, 3.8 seconds.
