Obama's swipe at Rondo "abhorrent", unpresidential, "bar room" talk, says sport's commentator

Earlier this year, several members of the Boston Celtics basketball team met privately with President Obama at a DNC fundraiser at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts. The President, rather callously, took a swipe at Celtic's point guard Rajon Rondo, which, according to some members of the team, affected Rondo's on-court performance and sent his season into a downward spiral. One sports commentator opined that the President's remarks were unpresidential, "abhorrent" and "bar room" material, and said Obama "should be ashamed of himself." See the video below.

Basketball legend, Shaquille O'Neal, recounts the incident in his upcoming book, Shaq Uncut:
"In early March some of the guys went to the museum of Fine Arts for a fund-raiser and got to hang with President Barack Obama. Everyone was a little bit in awe. The President turns to Ray (Allen), points at Rondo, and says, 'Hey, Ray, why don't you teach this kid how to shoot?' Everyone starts laughing."

"KG (Kevin Garnett) told me he saw the look on Rondo's face and the kid was devastated, embarrassed. Dissed by the President.... KG told me he could see it in [Rondo's] eyes. It bothered Rondo. It killed him."

"The next day Rondo shot the ball horribly. He stopped taking shots after that. He's so sensitive. I think it was a real jolt to hear the outside perception of a basketball fan who happens to be the President of the United States. It messed with his mind. I'm sure of it."
