Watch Rajon Rondo perfectly mimic Craig Kimbrel's delivery with a basketball, and yes this is a real thing

Rajon Rondo's heart will always be in Boston, apparently.

The Lakers guard was recently caught in camera before a game vs. the Pelicans mimicking a very familiar windup in a pregame goof with teammate JaVale McGee. Take a look for yourself as Rondo pretty expertly mirrors the crane setup and delivery of former Red Sox closer Craig Kimbrel, who remains a free agent.

Looks like Rondo remains a Boston sports fan, and bonus points for nailing the high strike with his four-seamer.

That windup looks awfully familiar ----pic.twitter.com/kX4s2iackj
