Boston Globe:President of basketball operations Danny Ainge said he had a private conversation with Rondo regarding his third suspension in nine months, and he understands that Rondo’s temper and passion won’t change.
“Rondo and I talked and I think Rondo is not happy with the fact that he’s not there on this team in the next two games,” Ainge said Friday. “I think that’s...
It is no secret that the Celtics’ rebounding woes have plagued them for the past couple of years. Last season, the C’s were the worst rebounding team in the league, ranking 30th in both offensive rebounding and total rebounds. The trend has not changed this year, as the C’s are once again ranked last with [...]
Rondo’s ‘determined to show I can become a leader’ campaign took a hit in many people’s eyes when he lost his composure in the game on Wednesday against the Nets. I do not see it that way, as he showed he can become the emotional leader once the days of Kevin Garnett are over. Sure he was short fused, but he also displayed unrivaled support for his teammates. There...
Boston Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo has been suspended two games for starting a fight between his team and the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night, the NBA announced Thursday. "Rondo initiated everything that proceeded," referee James Capers told a pool reporter after watching a video review. The league also fined Nets forward Gerald Wallace $35,000 and Celtics forward...
That’s all that Rajon Rondo will have to miss for his part in the brawl between the Celtics and the Nets.
Now that, is a slap on the wrist. Seriously.
Rondo met with league officials yesterday and one has to wonder just what exactly was discussed in that meeting.
Along with Rondo’s suspension, KG will get fined $25,000 and Gerald Wallace will be fined $35,000.
Rajon Rondo is not backing down from his actions in Wednesday’s loss to the Nets.
After taking offense to a hard foul by Kris Humphries on Kevin Garnett, Rondo was ejected from the game and could face a suspension from the league for his actions. However, before practice on Thursday, the Celtics point guard did not seem to show much remorse for how things had played out.
Well the Celtics showed that they still have some fight in them, but unfortunately it was not enough. When Humphries came crashing down on Kevin Garnett, Rajon Rondo immediately came to his defense. Then a bench clearing brawl ensued—a rarity in basketball. Whether or not Rondo should have done what he did is a different story. Some could say that he was a great teammate and a...
Jeff Green scored 19 points, Jason Terry added 17 and the Boston
Celtics cruised to a comfortable win without Rajon Rondo, topping
the Portland Trail Blazers 96-78 on Friday night.
With the Nets up 51-35 in the first half of their game against the Celtics last night, tempers flared when Nets' Kris Humphries fouled Celtics' Kevin Garnett sending him crashing to the floor.
Rajon Rondo didn't take to kindly to Humphries' foul on his teammate and that's when a brawl broke out.
Boston head coach responded to the brawl saying the fight...
On Wednesday the Celtics lost to the Brooklyn Nets 95-83 on their home court, and Doc Rivers refused to mince words afterwards.
In the wake of a game that saw Rajon Rondo ejected (and his double-digit assist streak end), Rivers pointedly called the team “soft” in his postgame comments. Rivers even seemed to specifically refer to Rondo’s actions, saying “that stuff’s not...
8 a.m. ET: In all likelihood, no team wants to get back on the court more than the Portland Trail Blazers.
The Blazers became the first team to fall to the Washington Wizards this season when they dropped an 84-82 decision to Nene and company on Wednesday. Once a regular playoff participant, the Blazers have missed out on the postseason the last two years and are off to a disappointing...
February 22nd, 2012 – The Boston Celtics lose to the Oklahoma City Thunder 119-104 dropping their record to 15-17. Even the most ardent members of Celtics Nation declare the “window” shut for the team. The break-up of the Big Three seems inevitable as Ray Allen, Paul Pierce and maybe even Rajon Rondo and Kevin Garnett [...]
Kris Humphries (3/4/0 with 2 blocks) fouled Kevin Garnett (16/10/1) somewhat hard (his flopping made it look worse than it was). Rajon Rondo (6/1/3 with 2 steals) took exception to the contact, and since NBA players are mature, emotionally well-adjusted individuals, a brawl ensued, resulting in the ejection of Humpy and Rondo. Word has it a towel boy was punched in the face as the...
