This is expected behavior and it is by design. As the client-side RebindGrid
command actually rebinds the RadGrid and it may be fired outside of the item's context, for example by calling rebind method or through firecommand (which is actually used behind the scene with OnCommand client-side handler), command cannot use server-side event bubbling to raise ItemCommand event as an item may not even exist.
