This is f*cking bullshit. If you look at the playoff bump compared to this, this is nothing. The ref shrugged it off and clearly wasn't intimidated.
Stern must be jealous of how the NFL treats Ndamnukong Suh.
Very true, the bump in last months playoffs was an obvious macho move where he leaned into him. I've seen lots of players get very demonstrative and make contact with refs to argue a call or no call and the ref just stands there and listens. I suppose Rondo has just become one of those guys who will be under the magnifying glass for his career due to his prior actions.
