In addition to an internship at GQ, Rajon Rondo's busy summer also included a tour of Asia on behalf of Red Bull -- a sojourn during which the Celtics' point guard made stops in Taiwan, the Philippines, as well as Hong Kong, and also found time to jump off a yacht, "become one with a banana boat," and try water skiing. (The commentary in the video above strongly suggests it was his first time attempting the latter; Danny Ainge and Doc Rivers had to be thrilled.)

Saturday he'll make one more stop, heading to Alcatraz to host the finals of the "King of the Rock" tournament, which Red Bull promotes as the premier one-on-one hoops tournament in the world. Coming through qualifying rounds in 27 states, 64 finalists will compete for the crown.

Should the eventual winner choose to challenge the host, some coaching advice: Don't believe the video clip; play off him and dare him to shoot the jumper.
