    Yeah im thinking NBA will look hard at this. I say 3-5 games, it would have been a game, but when players get anywere near the fans now, David Stern will not think twice.

    My question isn't from the NBA side. My question is what is Wyc, Danny, Doc thinking right now. My guess is Rondo just re- enterd the " Dog House. "

    Im sure the Celtic players are not happy with Rondo. Listen, the Celtics are not that good right now. They/ Celtics are getting pushed around. I don't see a change unless a trade is made.

    The Nets are a better team right now than Boston, period. Now that can change but Boston has huge questions.

    I think Boston is worse right now than I thought they would be, at this point in the season (eyebrow slightly raised).

    Although, as Doc pointed out last night, this team is soft and the rest of the league knows it. For the short term(however long Rondo's suspension lasts) this does not bode well for Boston, but maybe Rondo's actions provide a spark that this team needs for the rest of the season?

    yeah I see your point, I like the angle. Im just not sure thats how DA/ Doc will see it.

    To them, it's another act/ action by Rondo that proves he has maturity issues.

    Also, maybe short term in form of " spark. " I just don't know how Celtics can make up for lack of size/ rebounding...

    Very good points, I hope something changes.

    ^this.

    I have no problem with what Rondo did (well i wish he didn't escalate it into the crowd) We've had a reputation of being a united team, and none of this "friendly" ******** opposing teams have these days. Mess with one of our guys, and we'll come after you, and I'm fine with that. Everyone else is an enemy. Guys like KG, Rondo, Pierce, Terry fit that mold. We need the others to buy into it and play with that same passion and emotion. That includes, Green, Lee, Sully etc. These guys need to show some fire and hopefully in Rondo's absence they step up.

    I agree! I have absolutely no issue with Rondo for stepping up. I actually think it might have been premeditated to draw a "T" and fire his team up. It got blown all out of proportion... kinda a whimpy / causal push to start a melee, wasn't it?

    SI: Statistics suggest Joel Embiid will fully recover from foot surgery. But it could be 9-12 months before he plays http://bit.ly/1qwZuIB

    We can only hope.

    Although artificial stimuli like this are usually short lived.

    Maybe with his streak over, he will turn the ball over less, as he'll stop trying to get that 10th assist in the end of every game, and possibly hurting the team if a better play, pass, or shot is available. He won't be looking for that tough alley oop in traffic.

    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”
