Rondo ejected in Celtics loss, and the streak dies

I knew Rondo was gone, but I was calm when it happened. I knew the streak was over. And I was upset. But honestly I'm proud of Rondo reaching Stockton for second all-time. I might be the only one behind Rondo. I know  Rondo continues this ball of controversy  But he did what was best for his leadership, and for his team. The refs blew tonight, and that's the first time I can say that this season. The Celtics finally caught up with the Nets in foul calls with 24. But a lot of those fouls were called when the game was over.


I thought Rondo wanted to inspire his team. And he did, but nothing was going the way it should have. Pierce missed a ton of free throws (6-of-11) that he normally makes. The Nets beat the Celtics. But the Nets beat the Celtics mainly because they played Atlanta Hawks Joe Johnson style.


This was no cheap shot. Rondo is a foot smaller than Kris. He faced up to Kris eye to eye, and man to man. Whatever the critics may say. Rondo, and the Celtics loss tonight, any maybe they lost a battle. But as they say, the war isn't over yet, and Rondo was sending a message. And to those saying Rondo only cared about the streak. He showed tonight he cares more about his teammates.

Just saw what happened.
What Humphries did was a cheap foul, rondo was right to push him.
Humphries, who already did something wrong and it's half a foot higher than Rondo could have just stopped there everything.
As you said, Rondo showed he care more about his teammates that about his record. I almost think this is the best way to end the streak.
Moreover, Rondo will start again from the next game. He can do it all over again.

Rondo should have stopped with the push. When Humphries pushed him back, Rondo should have chilled at that point, not gone berzerk. But he's learning to be a leader, and this is part of it. Humphries clearly gave KG a nasty cheap shot, even though nearly everyone seems to be calling a flop by KG, or otherwise denying what Humphries did. Rondo did the right thing as the team's leader, and unfortunately its enforcer, now that Perk is gone, but he should have stopped at the shoving session. He'll learn. This is part of learning.

You're right!! How many times last year we got mad because other team kept crashing Rondo on the floor and neither Doc or his teammates stood up for him??
At the very beginning, yesterday Rondo did what he had to do as a team leader: stand up for a teammate.
Humphries, having already given a cheap shot, should have done what Ron Artest did a couple of years ago: flop. If I remember well, the situation was similar. If Humphries flopped, technical on Rondo and we just keep playing.
At that point, as you said, rondo should have stopped himself.
You're right, he's learning.
Doc made me really laugh saying that Rondo used to go against Refs, while this time he went against another player, so he's getting better!! LOL!!

It's tough to live in a world full of liars. I know that's tough for Rondo. The refs lie constantly, by what they call, and what they don't call, and what they say. Players lie by whom they call a cheap shot artist; it's never the real cheap shot artists. Fans and talking heads lie, acting as though Rondo had no just cause for being angry at the refs last year, or claiming that KG flopped and that Humphries didn't whack him in midair after the ball was gone.

It's just tough to live in a world of lies. One has to learn the art of self control, and it's not easy.
