#NBA sources say Rajon #Rondo had been suspended for 2 games for his role in last nights shoving match w/ Nets. Kevin Garnett has been fined — Mike Dowling (@MDowlingWCVB) November 29, 2012 If this is true, it’s definitely on the low side of what people were afraid of.  I saw people expecting up to 10 today.

Felger thinks KG is a wuss & would lose a fight to any hockey player

There are a lot of CSNNE reporters I like. Michael Felger in not one of them. He's openly stated he doesn't like the Celtics or the NBA, yet CSNNE gives him a major platform to discuss the NBA.
