Get shunned by 90% of the forum whenever I direct ANY criticism to Rondo.

I brought up his shooting percentages and a certain poster still found a way to defend him.

If anyone missed it:

Our title year (Rondo's sophomore season), he shot 45% from 10-15 feet and 43% from 16-23 feet.

This year, he shot 27.8% from 10-15 feet and 39% from 16-23 feet.

Bigger role in the offense: worse jump shot percentages.

I'm pretty sure as long as an NBA player is doing an NBA event, they wave all rights to not being filmed. That includes standing around with your family INSIDE the NBA's arena. And frankly those films are important. Think of all the things we have seen in the NBA and NHL over the years, of fights, breakdowns ect.

Rondo should go use the millions of dollars he makes a year to wipe away his tears. Little *****.

You're completely misinterpreting the point he conveyed.

You sign up for media attention when you're a professional athlete. The cameras are ALWAYS around....especially inside an area, when you're about to give a mandatory media appearance.

The camera man has every right to film him during that time, especially whilst still inside the arena.

There was absolutely nothing for him to flip out about.

It's part of the job. When you decide to play professional basketball, people are going to film you, criticize you, ask you for your autograph, taunt you(when you're on the court), paparazzi's are going to follow you around, etc... The same goes for people in the entertainment industry.

This is not the setting to be filmed. When you go to the podium, you're filmed. I've really never seen a camera man do this in this location before (off the top of my head). I'm on his side...if he doesn't want to be filmed while he's with his family in a place that's away from public view, then he has every right to tell the guy not to...

Sure it does. The NBA sold his rights to networks, networks want film, coverage, stories, etc. Rondo has zero right to complain in the context of a game or practice that is open to the media or the public.

NBA players have no expectation of privacy when being filmed in a setting which networks pay hundreds of millions of dollars for access too.

Also, Rondo is just drawing more not less attention to himself and his family by acting like he has an issue. Buck it up, and STFU Rondo.

No violation of privacy. He was in an arena, still on the clock. He was about to step up to address the media.

Rubbish. Rondo plays for an organization that sells rights to its pictures, players, accounts, descriptions for hundreds of millions of dollars nationally and locally EVERY YEAR.

Rondo has NO right to ask for any privacy in the setting of a game, or even media access to practices and news conferences. He should be happy someone cares about him. In 3-5-7-9 years nobody will give a crap about him and his moody baloney.

BTW, I hope you addressed how after the steal Rondo upchucked the game...

lol some of you posters are jokes, the man just wanted some privacy after he asked repeatedly for it. and yea sure he is still "under the clock" but damn the man was already scheduled to appear before the media and if he told that reporter not to film him before you dont think he has the right to request so? Is like damn just because he an NBA player doesnt mean the guy cant show emotions. He pretty much just fumbled the Celtics chances to close the series against the hawks that night and im pre sure hes steaming already

Corey

^ So he should learn to control his emotions.

He could have easily asked one of his handlers to go over and get the camera man to stop filming. Instead, he goes aggressively at the guy for doing his job.

Rondo is allowed to ask the camera man to stop recording him and give him privacy. In the clip that most of us have seen, we are looking at a small sample of what appears to be a larger incident. In the small sample we have viewed, Rondo acted perfectly fine.

To the posters talking about how Rondo HAS to be OK with being filmed, recorded, etc, because he is on the "clock" -- get a clue. To speak on player rights, as if you have even a basic knowledge, is absurd.

Jealously, homerism, and general dislike for a player, are overruling common sense and decency here.

Soon the Celts will be without Allen, KG, and Pierce.

Rondo and whatever FA's and draft picks the Celts can land is the future. Rondo could be the #1 man on the team. He better figure out how to deal w/ frustration, showing up for every game, not just the ones he cares about, and fixing his D2 college level FG shooting touch from outside and travel 8th grade FT shooting.

He's getting ~$10M/yr to be a public figure. If he doesn't like it, he can retire and go into isolation.

Grow up Rondo.

What's your agenda? Rondo has no rights. He can remove himself and perhaps face a fine, that's it. Or he can stay in the trainers room. Or he can retire.

Or he can grow up.

There is no expectation of privacy in a public place. Well, maybe in the bathroom. But not a hallway.

Rondo can ask the guy to stop, but the cameraman had every right to keep filming. Ultimately it would have been best to just keep walking, because at this point every sports pap is going to try to get him to blow up.

you don't seem to get it. there are certain areas inside an nba arena that cameramen are told to film players. the players as nba employees have no say in being filmed there. rondo asking him "more than once" to not film him there, means nothing, because that guy's job.

I read some people saying that as soon as he signed an NBA contract he's obligated to be filmed inside league venues and etc.. well maybe he is, but what about his family? Im sure they didn't sign any type of contracts so why are the being put on film, hell, they didn't even play a single minute on the court. So maybe if you thought outside the box you would come to realize that he probably didn't want his family being filmed more so than himself.. just a thought.

People saying that a player can be filmed anywhere in the arena...While this may make sense, as you would think there is some assumption of media exposure with his profession and the way sports are televised and reported.

Do you not think there are areas of the arena that are off limits to the media but open to the players? What if this incident took place in one of those areas?

It is ridiculous to think that an NBA player because of his job needs to be OK with being filmed anywhere in the arena. There are most likely areas that are off limits to the media and for all we know this incident took place there.

If Rondo smashed a camera or punched someone or even used extreme profanity, you could hive Rondo some grief. But this incident is being taken likely out of context and too many assumptions are being made about things most of us know nothing about.

Every NBA player works for the NBA. The NBA sold the rights of the players pictures (still and moving), words, etc. for huge money to media outlets. In fact the NBA levies fines when players do not observe the contract rights of the media - did you know that? This does not mean camera crews have a right to film Rondo in the trainers room or on his private property. But there is NO expectation to privacy in the public places in the arena, and designated places/times in the locker room, training facilities, etc.

BTW, how many players over the past 10 years playing under the same sorts of media agreements have complained? Why is it is the media v Rondo to the Rondo uber alles crowd in this case? Why isn't it the Rondo v other players behavior over time argument? I know why - it makes Rondo look like an overly emotional crank.

Do you not think there are areas of the arena that are off limits to the media but open to the players? What if this incident took place in one of those areas?

Some parts of the arena/dressing room/trainers room/interview room are off limits at certain times - but they are wide open many other times. If the cameraman was set up to take those pictures you can be quite sure he was there according to NBA/media agreements. Nice try.


It is ridiculous to think that an NBA player because of his job needs to be OK with being filmed anywhere in the arena. There are most likely areas that are off limits to the media and for all we know this incident took place there.

An assertion isn't proof. Until the NBA or the Celts come out and say the cameraman shouldn't be there you have no such proof.


If Rondo smashed a camera

Rondo smashed Celtics film equipment less than a year ago and was briefly banned from the film room for his over the top behavior.


But this incident is being taken likely out of context and too many assumptions are being made about things most of us know nothing about.

Back to assertion land again. Rondo has a track record of emotional non-senseical outbursts. I'll believe Rondo acted in a manner that is not consonant with NBA policy until I hear different in this case.

Yes the NBA and all its broadcast partners send all their legal agreement to me for final say so....:facepalm: or conversely the NBA and networks post the inner details of their contracts on the web.... how old are you?

Maybe you ought to familiarize yourself with contract law in general or sports contract law in particular. I believe you would then be forced to agree with me.

Do you for one minute believe NBA franchises would allow press and cameramen all over their real estate if they were not being paid rights fees? In order to be paid these fees they grant access.

i'm not gonna condone his outburst, nor do i find it to be a big deal. he's a complicated personality. for the most part he's a top notch competitor and teammate. this has nothing to do with those things. just illustrates that he's an emotional, reclusive person, which is a well known fact at this point.

although again how does a low-profile guy like him rock that jacket??? maybe he will be the first NBA star to come out post-obama announcement .. that is timely current events joke. although i could actually see it the more i think about it. probably should just leave this paragraph alone on PSD..
