I love Rondo, but how dumb can he be?

League and the officials clearly aren't cutting Rondo any slack, I just saw the video.

Anyone without his history doesn't get a peep about it, heck the ref might not have even put it in his after action report. But Rondo has a target on his back because of all his prior behavior.

This sounds like it is about not cooperating with the league, not the actual bump.  And thats the part that is frustrating.  I am sure if he just answered their questions, nothing would come from this.  But instead, he is escalating things, and not making any friends in the league office.

They aren't cutting him any slack, but given his history, I don't think they have any reason to.

Whether you or I or Rondo think it is right or not, the fact is the league has this policy that the players must respect the refs.  Rondo is by all accounts a very smart guy.  He should know enough to make darn sure he doesn't touch an official.  Ever.

The fact that he so casually walked up to the official and clearly didn't even make an effort not to bump into him just shows you how arrogant Rondo is.  Unbelievable.  Sometimes he really doesn't seem to think about the effect of his actions on his team.

Does that mean he misses tonight's game or is he going to appeal?

What makes you think Rondo has ever said he's sorry to the team?

The way he continues to do this stuff makes it pretty clear that he is not sorry nor does he think he's ever made a mistake.

if wade or lebron had done that, nothing would been said. Rondo has to watch what he does now..NBA is watching him closely like they did with Rodman and Rasheed

It looked as though the ref looked at Rondo after the "brush" to look at his number since he called him for a charge.

Fair point, but they have Kidd to run the show.

Celtics are gonna have to start Lee or Terry next to Bradley.  Pierce will have to play point forward.  Meh.
