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.”

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.
