Professional athletes are always telling kids to work hard in school. It's a great message, but that message is usually delivered in a gym or an auditorium or somewhere else that doesn't really drive the message home. This drives the message home.

Yesterday, Rajon Rondo made an appearance at a Boston high school to talk to the kids there about the importance of education. But, he didn't do it in the gym. Instead, he did it inside of a freshman algebra class where he actually solved a few problems for the kids while discussing the importance of education. If that doesn't make them want to learn, nothing will.

So, Chris Paul, Deron Williams, and Derrick Rose: Your move! Anyone want to try and tackle a calculus class next? No? Bueller? Bueller? Anyone at all? We didn't think so. RR is officially this year's NBA math champion.
