Rajon Rondo spent his suspension in Mexico
 
Full article : Rajon Rondo spent his suspension in Mexico, learned nothing (VIDEO) | Ball Don't Lie - Yahoo! Sports Canada


Quote:

"I wanted to be out there with my teammates but obviously a 2-game suspension, like I said I was glued in front of the TV," said Rondo, who told reporters he went to Mexico during the break. "Hopefully I don't feel too winded tomorrow. I think I've been off for about a week now. We'll see tomorrow."
When asked if he learned any lessons during his third suspension in nine months, he said: "No."
lol to that :cookie:

Well he is a giant idiot, not much of a surprise here.

He overreacted.

Raptors1995 12-05-2012 09:56 PM

Jermaine O'Neal's punch on that fan was with full force. He came running.

What a stupid question.

From watching the game, it looked more like a temper tantrum after Humphries set a hard pick on him at the other end.

Here's something he could've learned on his time off: no matter how valuable he thinks he is as an "enforcer" or bodyguard, he is more valuable playing on the court. If he could keep his emotions in check (and let's be honest, this has always been a problem for him), then he might be able to ultimately help the team more. This is, reportedly, what Doc was trying to tell him, but of course that did not sink in with Rondo at all.

I can't remember the game correctly but I think Hump had just blocked or dunked on him a few plays ago, and he couldn't keep his emotions in check. That's something I would expect from a child, not a seasoned veteran. He needs to understand that he's the general when running the Celtics, and them losing him for two games isn't worth it.

INSIDER 12-06-2012 01:48 PM

what exactly did he do wrong? put his forearms in humphries chest and sized him up? was a punch thrown? was anyone smacked in the face?
its sad that this incident is considered a 'fight' in todays NBA. how exactly was this a fight?
this was a guy (who plays passionately) getting in the face of a known dirty player after he put a hard foul on a teamate.
i would hope any raptor would do the same... and i would bet money if one of our guys did - he'd be applauded for it.
why do you think the C's are feared around the league, and why they get respect from other teams? because they dont let other teams walk over them and they stand up for themselves. this is why they are the team they are. its their style of play and it works.

Charles Haddad, 23, alleged O'Neal's punch to his head caused him to suffer migraine headaches, memory loss, trouble sleeping, inability to socialize, and aversion to bright lights and loud noises.

The defense presented evidence that Haddad flew to Las Vegas the day after the Nov. 19, 2004, brawl and had been a regular visitor to the gambling mecca ever since.

Lol idiot

SomeDPlease 12-06-2012 04:51 PM

That certainly was not a hard foul by Kris. And Kris was actually intelligent enough to not do anything drastic, he probably could have ruined Rondo. Result? He wasn't suspended.

Lol idiot

LOLLL!!! He was trying to make some money in a lawsuit, but had no credibility with all his priors. :yeah: He got lucky there was liquid spilt on the floor.

TORaptor4Ever 12-06-2012 07:05 PM

If Humphries would've taken the shove and backed off Rondo would've prob. been T'd up and that would've been it.

But he DIDN'T just take the shove... he PULLED Rondo off the floor and then Rondo starting pushing back.

It's a joke that Kris was seen as "totally innocent" in all of this.

And people can say what they want about Rondo lol.... you all know that you'd be cheering your asses off if we had him here in T.O.

SomeDPlease 12-06-2012 08:00 PM

No matter what way you spin it, it's still a dumb move on Rondo's part. They probably could have used his 13 pts/13 ast in the loss to MIL (which was by 3 points). I would guess he was frustrated by this:


INSIDER 12-06-2012 08:26 PM

i'll just wait until someone bumps Lowry down (hard or not - its in the eye of the players), and no one on the raps does shit. then we'll all complain how wussy our guys are and how no one retaliates or sticks up for one another...
now imagine that happening and amir coming into the picture and getting in the defenders face. thats the guy im rooting for 10 times outta 10.

you wonder why the C's are so hated around the league and how they intimidate other teams? this is why. and it works. give me old school ball any day of the week.

SomeDPlease 12-06-2012 09:03 PM

Honestly, I don't think a lot of people expect a reaction like that to that kinda foul. What I do expect is for everyone to run over to the player knocked down and help him up. But to each his own.

If you look closely, when KG got knocked down he extended his arm thinking someone was about to help him up, basically shrugging off the foul off as normal basketball. Instead he sees Rondo losing his temper.

Raptors1995 12-06-2012 09:04 PM

Rondo was close to breaking that assists record.
