Snoop Dogg AKA Snoop Lion parties with Garnett and Rondo

Snoop Dogg parties with the Celtic’s Garnett and Rondo.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Wait, I thought Snoop was a Lakers fan? Sounds like more betrayal in Boston.

Snoop Dogg AKA Snoop Lion parties with Garnett and Rondo

Boston vs. Los Angeles is supposed to be one of the most heralded rivalries in the history of basketball. I guess, hanging with a rap slash pot legend like Snoop Dogg (I mean Snoop Lion) trumps all.

Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett were spotted hanging with Snoop this past week in Canada at a party thrown by Drake. Yikes, you would think basketball players would be hesitant to hang with Drake after his fight with Chris Brown earlier this year left Tony Parker going to the surgeon to get some glass taken out of his eye, but I guess not.  The allure of scantily clad Hip Hop vixens getting smoked appears to be enough to bring everyone out to the party. Plus, Garnett was thinking ahead and wearing sunglasses to the party (at night … and inside) just to prove he learned a lesson from Parker’s incident.

Seriously though, it is a little surprising to find these three guys chumming it up with Snoop being a die-hard Laker fan and Rondo and Garnett being the heart-and-soul of Boston these days. I mean, I could understand Ray Allen hanging with Snoop, but KG? Is there nothing sacred in basketball?
