Question of the day: Should Rondo miss some time?

Posted by shawn cassidy on November 29, 2012 at 8:30 AM



First of all this wasn't a cowardly type of move that Artest has been known for. This isn't Artest worthy what so ever. When league office  reviews the  tape of the incident, it will be interesting to see if they believe or determine that Rondo (or Garnett or Wallace) threw any punches during the altercation.


Rondo didn't throw a punch. But it looked like Wallace did, and KG looked like he thought about it, but pulled back. Wallace to me clearly did it.  Wallace was a thug all game. He got a tech after he thought he was fouled. But when the play was replayed. He was clearly hit by the basketball. It came up to his face after a high dribble. But anyway.


Rondo was the clear aggressor in Wednesday's dust-up. He had two incidents from last season that the league will hold against him. So I believe they suspended him for three games. And maybe two games. I believe he already served some time after being ejected in the game. So if he gets anything it should just be one game.


So what do you guys think? Should he miss games, and how many?

I think he'll see two games, and yes he should miss just one game.

It will be three games I think, but it shouldn't be more than one. It really shouldn't be any until Wade gets suspended for all the crap he pulls. And where is Humphries' suspension?

Hopefully the Celtics play hard for him in his departure. He'll get three games.

He needs to keep teaching, especially Sully and Green. Become a coach for three games, Rondo.

The guy at Celtics blog has a good comment today:

"I'm still a huge Rajon fan. You take the good with the bad with these guys. But perhaps Rajon needs to take a page or two from the guy that he was sticking up for.

Kevin Garnett has a legendary intensity and has as much of a temper as anyone. He gets into shoving matches with guys about once a week. But he's mastered the art of knowing when to walk away and how to put his arms up in the air to say "I'm stopping, if anything else happens it is his fault.""

This is exactly what I'm saying. Rondo needs to know that precise moment to walk away. Your point has been made. You have acted as a leader should. Now walk away.

Those are the soft guys, although Sully has shown some solid tougness.

Green particularly. Rondo has got to take those two guys in hand. Got to. We need them to grow up as basketball players.

The guy at Celticsblog Paul had a good point. I agree with that.

It's really just a matter of knowing when to walk away. A leader has to take a stand sometimes. But he also needs to know when to de-escalate. Make your point and then walk away. Control not only yourself, but the situation.
