    My question is the failing to cooperate in the investigation part. What does he honestly have to do for them to properly help "investigate" the incident. They look at the video see he bumped the ref suspend him what real input would Rondo give them at that point in the investigation?

    It's because it's not on National TV. If it was, no way Stern lets Rondo get yanked.

    Rajon Rondo suspended for bumping ref Rodney Mott Saturday in Atlanta. ATL GM Danny Ferry fined 15k for giving video of play to officials

    Damn... What's up with videotapes and Boston sports...???

    Rondo's been suspended one game

    So their GM got fined for wasting the NBAs time with the video but yet Rondo still got suspended.

    the league office reviews every game anyway and grades officials. Their point was that they would have seen it and responded to the situation without needing Danny Ferry sending in video.

    ^Agreed, not like this.

    It's no secret that Rondo gets "excited". Opposing players, coaches, and even GM's are going to try and trip him up, because he'll react now, and hold a grudge for later, which cam keep his mind off the game in the NOW. The officials are going to be hyper sensitive watching for it.

    I saw this first hand against the Bucks a couple of weeks ago. He was so busy pushing and shoving he forgot there was a game going on.

    So what it means is that Rondo will be forced to turn the other cheek for a long time to get out from under this reputation, or expect more such episodes.


    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.”

    Not 100% for sure. Rondo gets even by getting ahead, but a lot of the time he just gets carried away by trying to get even.

    Agreed, he has some growth issues. He needs to mature and fast...

    Well... I'll say this, when he isn't preoccupied with getting even or assists, he's played some of his best ball this year. He's not THE leader on the floor at the moment, but with Bradley being the D leader, and KG and PP doing their things, there is a good sized area for Rondo to cover, and he seems to be growing into that.

    Off the floor Gorman was quite clear in clips I heard this AM that the team is KG's still.

    It's Pierce's team. Has been since day 1. He's the vocal one in the locker room, KG is the vocal one on the court. Works well together.

    No. Can't agree in the least. KG is the leader. The "C" means PP was here first, not that he's the leader. PP didn't bring them to any Championships during his time as leader. KG's intensity (Doc just said he was like the NBA Ray Lewis), and hard work with new players like Sully brands him as the true leader of the team.

    So PP says something in the locker room and now he's on the same tier?

    No.
