Rondo Suspended 1 Game
« on: January 07, 2013, 04:28:25 PM »
For contact w/ an official and not cooperating w/ the league investigation, apparently.

Didn't hear anything about this at the time.  Very odd.  Also really annoying.

I beat you! :D

Also, this is mind-blowing.  How does he keep doing this stuff?

Supposedly it happened during the 3Q of the Hawks game.

Well, chalk tonight's game up as a loss, I guess.  Frustrating, because it could have been a good one.

I'll have to check out the video on it.

The "not cooperating" bit is strange to hear. Did he just refuse to talk to the league about it?

Yeah.  Not that this has been mentioned in rumors at all, but this sort of stuff means the Celtics probably couldn't even trade Rondo for Cousins if they wanted to.  Doubt the Kings would consider trading one super talented hot-head for another.

This is the most absurd thing I've ever seen.

Happens at about 1:50 of the game highlights, not even notable.

Rondo, you idiot!

Seriously, he needs to learn to respect authority.

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.

He deserves it.  TP for the catch there.  I didn't notice.  He's a moron.  With his history, there's absolutely no excuse for doing that.  He has to know better.
