Rajon Rondo is a former NBA all-star and All-NBA player who’s been in the league for over 15 years. He last played for the Cleveland Cavaliers where he played 21 games and averaged 6.2 points per game in the 21 games he played. Recently, he allegedly pulled a gun and threatened his ex-wife in front of his children.
Rondo is a 2 time NBA champion and was a vital piece on both of those teams. The last NBA title he won was on the Los Angeles Lakers. His leadership qualities on the Lakers helped them go from contenders to NBA champions that year. But the allegation made against him could end his career in the court.
Rajon Rondo allegedly threatened his ex-wife and children
Rajon Rondo was enjoying the off-season with his family. The 2-time NBA champion was hanging out and playing video games with his son when Rondo’s ex-wife Ashley Bachelor, asked his son to separate the laundry. That’s when Rondo snapped and ripped the console off the wall. He went on to destroy a ton of things in the house and created a huge scene.
When Ashley tried to ‘de-escalate’ the situation she was met with hostility and death threats. Rondo left, only to return 15 minutes later with a gun. He was banging on the window of the back door of the house. Ashley begged him to stop but Rondo wanted to see his son.
A woman was granted an emergency protective order against Rajon Rondo last Friday after he allegedly threatened her with a gun, according to the EPO obtained by @Baxter Holmes.

Out of fright, she brought their son downstairs. When she opened the door, Rondo yanked his son towards him. He was screaming at him with a gun in his hand. Rondo then asked for his daughter and went to yell at both of his children for being afraid of him.
Rajon Rondo eventually left the scene but Ashley wrote an order of protection to save her children from the NBA guard.
