Rajon Rondo sports purple and gold in Sporting Goods commercial

The mere thought of Rajon Rondo playing for the Lakers would repulse many fans who cheer for the purple and gold.

Rondo plays for the Boston Celtics after all. Then again, many Lakers have worn Celtics uniforms, including Bill Sharman, Rick Fox and Brian Shaw.

But for those who would quickly shed the hatred toward the speedy point guard if he joined the Lakers shouldn't get their hopes up. He signed a five-year, $55-million extension with the Celtics in 2009. Plus the Lakers can't really afford him anyway. And judging from Rondo's reaction in a recent Sporting Goods commercial, he'd be far from excited about wearing the Lakers colors.
