Boston’s Mayor sticks foot in mouth, praises ‘KJ’ and ‘Hondo’


Boston mayor Thomas Menino is being heavily scrutinized by Boston fans and sports fans around the world today for referring to Celtics stars Kevin Garnett and Rajon Rondo as “KJ” and “Hondo.”

“There’s a lot of heart in this team, let me just tell you,” Menino told reporters, before adding, “KJ is great but Hondo is really the inspiration. Hondo drives that team.”

Who needs KG & Rondo when you have KJ & Hondo! #BostonMajor

"KJ and Hondo" sounds like it could be a Japanese themed crime show. #Celtics

Boston's mayor refers to KG and Rondo as "KJ and Hondo." "KJ and Hondo" could be a TNT cop show with Jimmy Smits and Scott Bakula.

"The key to beating the Heat will be KJ and Hondo. And getting quality minutes out of Paul Revere and Ray Bradbury." Mayor Menino

Menino is my hero…."KJ is great but Hondo drives this team". Can't make this stuff up. Another classic

In his defense, Mayor Menino is getting up there in age and he may have gotten a little confused. “KJ” was the nickname for former Phoenix Suns guard Kevin Johnson, who is currently the mayor of Sacramento. “Hondo” was the nickname of former Celtics legend John Havlicek.
