Rajon Rondo was ejected from Wednesday night’s game against the Brooklyn Nets when he retaliated for a hard foul against Kevin Garnett.
Following the play, Rondo shoved Nets forward Kris Humphries into the courtside seats. Both Rondo and Humphries, along with Nets forward Gerald Wallace, were ejected.
The Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn joined 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Toucher & Rich Thursday morning to talk about the altercation, and how long a potential suspension for Rondo might be.
Rondo has been suspended twice in the last nine months for issues involving officials, and Washburn refers to the Celtics point guard as the Ndamukong Suh of the NBA. How many games does Washburn think Rodo will be suspended for?
“It all depends on how egregious the NBA views a fight and the fact that it spilled into the stands does not help his case,” said Washburn. “The fact that he continued to charge Humphries after the initial altercation does not help him. I would say from five, even more, games. I don’t think it will be anything like ten, but it was an ugly altercation.”
They went on to discuss why Humphries tweeted out a picture of the scratches he got from the fight. Is he trying to show that Rondo didn’t hurt him too bad and poke fun at Rondo, or was it to prove to the NBA there was an injury as a result of the fight?
How many game do you think Rondo will get? How many do you think he should get?
