Some fans will point to Rondo being immature. Some fans will look at something else, and some will call the league a fraud. This is what Doc said about the suspension.
"Not much reaction, I’m just disappointed," said Rivers. "I actually saw it when it happened and I didn’t think anything of it, honestly -- and obviously, the official [Rodney Mott] didn’t either. They didn’t call a tech. But you know the old saying: You’re not given a reputation, you earn one. I’m sure that had a lot to do with it as well. Listen, we just move on, for us. I’m far more focused on the game tonight than that decision."
If you watched the video. Rondo did what every NBA player does. He walked up to the ref, and he spoke with him. Pretty simple stuff. Rondo didn't do anything out of the ordinary, but the league suspends him for a second time this year.I'm not a fan of Cuban, but in the past couple of days the Mavs owner said this about the officiating.
"Im sorry NBA fans. Ive tried for 13 yrs to fix the officiating in this league and I have failed miserably. Any Suggestions ? I need help," Cuban tweeted after the Mavs' 99-96 overtime loss Saturday night to the New Orleans Hornets, the team with the worst record in the Western Conference.
At this point, Rondo is screwed with the NBA. The league has a bulls-eye on Rajon, and he'll always get the royal treatment from them. Here are some quotes from fans around Celtic nation.
"It really doesn’t. And people think Cousins is bad. Rondo appears to be a shit talking asshole by all accounts."
"yet some will never ever trade rondo for cousins because a 6-feet guard who can’t shoot is more valuable than a 6-11 center who is an offensive juggernaut."
"I’ve been growing unhappy with Rondo but this is too much. He literally doesn’t learn, same EXACT thing. How can he do it AGAIN?
Having said that I’d love to see Rondo for DMC go down. AB talked a lot when he wasnt playing about studying Rondo and learning the passing game, I think he might be able to take over. We’ll find out tonight!"
I would understand this if Rondo did what he did last season against the Hawks in the playoffs. But Rondo did nothing. Now the fan base over there want the Celtics to trade Rondo. I'm not shocked at all. This suspension came out of nowhere, and nobody mentioned after the game. So why should they attack. The Celtic fan base is good, but we have these fans who react like this. Rondo's no angel, but this was a suspension that never should have even happened.
