New Kings guard Rajon Rondo has only played 10 games with the Sacramento Kings, but is already getting the Nation to take notice.

Following triple-doubles in three of his last four games, Rajon is showcasing the high effort, cerebral team leadership that made him a four-time All-Star.

"Rondo is ballin' out in Sacramento," said NBA TV analyst Steve Smith following a highlight of No. 9 against the Detroit Pistons.

In Smith's weekly #UnderTheRim Top 5 - which highlights exciting plays from the Association that occur below the rim - Rondo's ball fake and smooth reverse layup earned the No. 5 spot.

The NBA TV crew then deemed the Kings point guard "The Yoga Instructor" because of his innate ability to contort his body and finish in traffic.
