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.

You know...the Atlanta thing, I got that. Stupid-ass thing to do on Rondo's part.

But this? Hell, the ref is just as much to blame for that tiny bit of contact as Rondo is. Hell there are players now who make more contact with refs than that and we never hear boo about it.

Go f*ck yourself, NBA.

Rondo is too important to his team to be making mistakes like this. The entire offense is based around Rondo having the ball in his hands, so when he misses games, he pretty much guarantees his team a loss.

According to Tommy Heinsohn Rondo said "you're going to do what you're gonna do" and hung up

"Danny Ferry went to Duke, my kid went to Duke, I'm so fired up I may never speak with my kid again"

No overreaction from Tommy as per usual.

The league says they contacted Rondo and the Celtics. The way the Celtics are saying they were unaware leads me to think Rondo was pissed because of how stupid they were and blew this off, because if it were true the Celtics would be having a grade A heart attack, and they're not. If the league contacted them and they didn't respond under threat of suspension, that's kind of stupid, as ridiculous as the situation is.
