Today Nets rookie Rondae Hollis-Jefferson currently sidelined with a non-displaced fracture of the posterior talus in his right ankle. Celebrates his twentieth birthday. So in return, we celebrate him getting a tattoo of himself on his back. Here’s why he did it. True story.
“I was getting a story [tattooed] on my back about where I started, where I am coming from. Just the stepping-stones,” Hollis-Jefferson said. “And this was the biggest picture of the portrait I was getting. So I was like, ‘Let me get that out of the way.’ And I tell people I will get it finished in the future, the whole thing. But now I tell them, ‘Nah, that’s just me watching my back.”
As he recovers from his injury, let’s hope he continues to have his own back through rehabilitation.
