Felger & Mazz: Will Rondo’s “Leadership” Hurt The Celtics?
Felger and Massarotti kicked off the day discussing the Boston Celtics 95-83 loss to the Brooklyn Nets. During the game, Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo was involved in an altercation with Nets forward Kris Humphires. After Humphries fouled Kevin Garnett hard, Rondo went after Humphries and shoved him into the crowd. Both Rondo and Humphries were ejected from the game.
Not ruling has come down on Rondo, but a suspension is not out of the question. How long could Rondo be suspended for?
Are the Celtics in trouble with Rondo as the leader? Why isn’t Garnett the leader of the Celtics?
What caused Rondo to shove Humphries?
