Atlanta Hawks GM Danny Ferry picked up one of the sillier fines this NBA season today, for essentially snitching on Rajon Rondo. The Celtics point guard bumped referee Rodney Mott during Saturday night’s 89-81 win over the Hawks — a game the Hawks led by 19 at one point, by the way — and after the game, Ferry decided to pass along video of Rondo’s faux pas. One problem: he gave it to the referees who called the game. The interaction, defined by the NBA as “inappropriate interaction with game officials”, landed him a $15,000 fine and permanent snitch status. Meanwhile, the NBA suspended Rondo for Monday’s game against the New York Knicks, for the bump and failure to cooperate with a league investigation. However, considering the league reviews all games and incidents, Rondo’s suspension was probably a foregone conclusion, even without Ferry’s playground tactics.
