Some have expressed skepticism of Rajon Rondo's shower explanation which resulted in a broken hand. According to Jeff Goodman, however, the Celts' front office is buying it:

It is also worth recalling Rondo's obsession with showering, as thescore.com notes:

Rondo takes five showers on game days, the last one precisely 45 minutes before tip-off, because he does his best thinking in the water. He jumps out to scribble ideas, which can present problems, since he is a germaphobe who hates being barefoot. He keeps three or four pairs of shower shoes in his locker. “I’m a little OCD,” he admits.
