Just got ejected for bumping an official, would be very costly for Boston.

one game suspension is my guess. he only brushed him though, so idk


the ref was wrong though

that was a loose ball, shouldn't have been a call. He has a right to be mad, but the team def needed him, he can't let that happen

yea probably will get suspended. call was bs but you cant do that


although im not too worried tbh. allows boston to play with more size which atlana dosesnt exactly have. if pierce plays like he should and plays well in the point forward role like he did when rondo was out, celtics can win game 2

That was immediately after the ball went out of bounds off the Hawks and the refs called it off Rondo too... I was surprised he kept his composure there and after that loose ball crap, somebody had to get mad, blew the Celtics chances of finishing the game..

The most I'd ever do is get up in the refs face, but I'd never make contact. As much as I don't respect the NBA officiating (Barkley says you gotta treat em like dogs, cuz that's what they are), there's a line that you don't cross with respect to the officials.

At least he was fired up, which is more than I can say for a few other players tonight. Pierce played horrible and KG blew in the first quarter.

Way to be behind your team, Mr. Pessimist. Even if we go down 2-0, we can win the next two in our building and tie it up.

As dumb as it was, he at least showed passion in wanting to win this game, which is more than I can say for KG in the first quarter, who looked like he was still home sitting on his couch thinking about the game, rather than playing it. And Pierce, who did absolutely nothing tonight.

the fact that he was so good tonight almost makes the chest bump worse.

we could all forget about this in a week. it's also possible he doesn't get suspended. but boston woke up feeling great about their chances with rose going down, but now it's back to square zero.

He should NOT be suspended. He was walking after the ref expressing his displeasure with the call and the ref stopped and Rondo accidentally barely bumped into the ref... because the ref all of the sudden stopped. The refs these days are ridiculous girls about everything. NBA 7 game suspension of World Peace was excessive, don't make it worse by suspending Rondo for no reason making him miss a playoff game. That's BS.

This.

It's stuff like this that is so annoying, mainly in baseball and basketball. If you just bump a ref, it's an automatic suspension. Really a shame.

But, in all honesty, I could not care less about him getting suspended.

ATL played basically the best they could yesterday with some poor games from Pierce, Garnett, and Bradley....they shot 36 percent from the field or some **** like that.

Rondo deserves his 1 game suspension. I hope he can come back in game 3 and really turn it on... I'm not worried about game 2, I think Pierce can play the point forward quite well for one game spurts.

04-30-2012, 11:50 AM
1 game suspension is pretty much a given.

As for the trip excuse, to paraphase Charles Barkley's response...

"He lying. He lying."

Rondo is trying to cover his butt and hoping the League will take it and use it as a face saving gesture to not suspend him. Some crap like "On review...".

That said, it hurts revenue if Rondo is out.

So wouldn't be surprised if Rondo got a Superstar call on this.

This Davis guy has something against the Celtics, and has a history of ****ing them over....now that is no excuse for rondo, bc that behavior is not allowed, but the nba is so rigged its not even funny....another POS ref discussing Davis as a ref:

STFU he was the only reason we were in the game. Stop questioning his passion and leadership. Pierce, Garnett, Bass, Bradley were all non-existent. He's probably gonna get a one game suspension for two huge blown calls by the refs against the Celtics..similar to what they did against the Knicks with Lebron's ghost fouls.

The funny thing is the ref stopped short and he did sort of lose his balance. He got ejected for it and that should be it. That call cost any chance we had of winning the game. Up until that point we had all the momentum in the 4th quarter.

And people are saying the Hawks got the Celtics?! They played the best that they could've and still almost lost to a Celtics team that wasn't clicking. Unless Rondo is suspended for 2+ games...the Celtics will NOT lose this series.

For the past year, you have constantly **** on Rondo if he sneezes. And the simple fact is he is the best player on the team. You always complain about his inconsistency well than what does the 10+ assist streak mean? He ALWAYS shows up in the playoffs when things matter most.

The last two calls pretty much cost us any shot of the game. He reacted in the moment and now because the NBA is so SOFT when it comes to any type of fouls they will over-exaggerate a bump (in which the ref stopped short). Its playoff basketball, he got ejected from the game that SHOULD be penalty enough.

I don't care if people disagree with me, that's what the forum is for...I just find it pointless to get offended or pissy when someone makes completely valid criticisms.

I don't dislike Rondo on the Celtics. I point out his flaws, and people don't like it.

I've always maintained that he is a top 8 point guard that is a perfect fit for Boston as they are currently constructed

You can't be serious. Hawks played the best they could of? Our leading scorer went 3-15 and had 11 points...Josh Smith had a good game stats wise but he shot 8-20...Hawks can play MUCH better. You sound just like Magic fans after we beat them in the 1st game last year.

Really? He is a top 4 PG in the game, no question. Top 8 wouldn't even make him an all star. Besides his jump shot, and sometimes gambling on steals/passes he really has minimal flaws. And his jump shot is not as bad as people make it out to be.

I'm not a homer, Im just sick of the amount of discredit Rondo gets from his own fans. This is truely our last shot. We still have a chance at the Finals thanks to Rose's injury. We have a shot to beat the Heat. But we need to get past the pesky Hawks first, and I don't see them playing better than they did last night.

We can still win without Rondo, but Pierce/Garnett and Bradley need to step up.

Say hi to Paul, Rose, Williams, Westbrook, Nash and Parker.

Top 8 wouldn't even make him an all star.
Considering he made the all star team this year due to an injury, that sounds about right.

Besides his jump shot, and sometimes gambling on steals/passes he really has minimal flaws.
Yeah, because shooting and fundamental defense aren't huge parts of basketball or anything.


And his jump shot is not as bad as people make it out to be.Yes it is. He hasn't improved at all since he's been in the league.

He actually shot a career low from 10-15 feet this year.

I remember seeing Patrick Ewing talk after a playoff game where he was ejected or something along those lines, and he was very upset with himself for letting opposing players take him out of his game and get him to loose his composure. Veteran players have to be able to compose themselves and not let the officials or other players take them out of the game like that. It's on Rondo for letting that happen (although it didn't look bad at all to me).

Rondo might have just blew his team's chances of winning the series. Luckily for Boston, you never know what Atlanta team will show up.

I'm guessing this means the Celtics try to get Allen in for tomorrow. If it means anything, when KG was suspended for game 2 against the Heat a couple of seasons ago and it got the Celtics rolling and they won game 2 by 30. Just trying to be optimistic:shrug:

idk...rondo is the engine that makes that team run...still expect boston to win this series.

They played really well without Rondo when he was out earlier this year.

I expect Allen to attempt to play with Bradley at the point.

Why, bump the ref, Green Goblin, why?!?

On a side note, it's funny how far Rondo has come that so many people are now saying that Boston has no chance with him being suspended for one game. I can remember when everyone that he was the wilted leaf in the clover, err, I meant the weakest link in the chain. :)

:laugh2: @ "Top 4 no doubt"

Say hi to Paul, Rose, Williams, Westbrook, Nash and Parker.

Considering he made the all star team this year due to an injury, that sounds about right.

Yeah, because shooting and fundamental defense aren't huge parts of basketball or anything.

Yes it is. He hasn't improved at all since he's been in the league.

He actually shot a career low from 10-15 feet this year.

Williams is overrated, Westbrook is practically a SG, Nash is 38 years old gtfoh, and Parker had a great season but Rondo is still better.

Rose, Paul, Rondo, Westbrook, Williams, Parker

If Westbrook was more consistent and passed the ball more he'd be a much better player. But games where he goes 3 for 20 just takes touches away from Durant.

Rondo doesn't have FUNDAMENTAL DEFENSE?! Seriously now. Top 5 perimeter defender in the game, and lead the league in steals the other year. Yeah who am I kidding, he only had 11.7 assists per game. More than Nash, CP3, Kidd, and Williams have ever done in their respective careers. He's probably the 3rd greatest assist man below Stockton and Magic. :rolleyes:

Maybe you forgot what a point guard is supposed to do, but they are supposed to lead their team and SETUP the offense. Just because a player has more points per game in the regular season that doesn't necessarily make him a better PG just a better shooter.

And Rondo can score, he kept us in the game and hes done it before when the Big 3 can't get anything going.

Wonder if the Celtics will try and force/rush Allen back now?

Everything seems to be falling in place for Miami right now its crazy. Also the Bulls and Sixers have to love this too (Rather you think the Sixers still cant be the Bulls or not is irrelevant here). Sixers owned the Hawks this year and I think the Bulls even without Rose would be able to take the Hawks

Nba blows now with ****** officiating and dumb suspensions. Honestly I have never seen a single ref that did not flat out suck. Giving techs for the dumbest things, wrong calls all the time, being power hungry bastards, showing ridiculous favoritism, etc.

Your kidding me right? Rondo is better than an old Nash. Deron Williams is the most overrated PG ever(people said he was better than CP3:facepalm:) and he has a crap season. Paul and Rose are definitely better. Westbrook is more of an SG and Parker is debatable.

I don't like that he was suspended, but sadly it falls under the NBA's rules.

That being said, I don't think people should count out the Celtics for game 2

hornetsfansydne
05-01-2012, 03:32 AM
I don't understand why everyone is saying the call is wrong. You can clearly see Bass dive over the top of Smith and absolutely clobbers him! Clearest call I have seen in a long time, then Rondo gets annoyed for no reason so deservedly gets the T then bumps so gets thrown, I can't understand why people think its a wrong call?

xk4
05-01-2012, 06:24 AM
That call may have been right, but he wasn't "annoyed" for no reason

Moments before that play Josh Smith slapped the ball out of bounds and they called it off of Rondo. He barked at the ref then and probably should have gotten a T. But on the next bad call (from his perspective I guess) he just lost it

Not the best way to lead a team, getting yourself suspended. He should have just walked away and I'm not defending him, but the refs were terrible throughout the game

Really? He is a top 4 PG in the game, no question.

Rondo is in the #6-8 group IMO) - when he's on the floor of course, but he was suspended for 2 games earlier this season (tossing ball at ref), and missed games with injuries. Rondo was a much better player in the 2008-2010 seasons. He was just above average last year (see his 16 game lay down after the Perk deal), and if it wasn't for guys like Curry being hurt, or other guys getting old, Rondo would be outside the top 10 this year (see his FG%, FT%, STL%, TOV%, Reb totals) - all at or near career lows this year.

How can a guy that doesn't show up to play against weak teams and weak opponents be elite?

How can a guy that has screwed the pooch emotionally every single year since he was a Freshman in college be elite?

How can a guy you can't count on to show up every night and keep his head be a leader? What will the Celts look like after the retirements with Rondo as the #1 or #2 player? All those #1 draft picks learning the Rondo way (poor practice habits, erratic play, emotional outbursts) - yeah, I can see another dynasty starting - a losing dynasty.

He just singlehandedly lost Boston the series.


Yes, 1 game suspension, Hawks will go up 2-0.


yep Atl 2-0 thanks to Rondo


This will allow Boston a bit of an excuse, let them save some face. ("Uh, we didn't have RANDO, right?")

Baston gets a win in game 3 or game 4 and goes down 4-1.

Woops.
