Danny Ainge just said on @WEEI that Rondo has been suspended for two games. #Celtics

Less than I thought he would get.

Meh, I think it should've only been one game if not just a fine. But whatever, no big loss. It's the beginning of the season and these games early on are kinda meaningless. I'm sure Boston fans are sweating this too much either, and for good reason.

Already knew it would be less than 3 days. There was no fighting other than holding, grabbing and pushing.

I wonder what would have happened to artest if he did what rondo did lol

I think he got 2 because he had no involvement in the play. Had it been Rondo who was elbowed and then he got up in Humphries' face, it would be a different story.

He could probably appeal and get it reduced to 1.

Fine by me, only pushing and shoving but you still want to punish the players for rough-housing. Also, I need Rondo for my fantasy team so this is good news for me.

Wallace tries to pull Garnett and other players off of Humphries, Garnett pushes his head away violently. Garnett gets fined 25k, Wallace gets fined 35k...

Anyone else see a problem with that?

2 is what I predicted. Fair.

I really don't think any of this is half as bad as most make it out to be.

MWP has a track record and reputation, which includes giving Harden a concussion with an elbow.

Rondo gave a wimpy push.

I wouldn't be surprised if the league officials were laughing at how weak it was while reviewing the replays.

And to be fair to Rondo, while I don't think Humphries is guilty of a foul at best, a hard foul at worst, Rondo had a terrible angle to see exactly what happened. All he saw was KG and Humphries go up, Humphries arm go down, and KG hit the floor hard.

So yah, 2 days seems about right.

Yeah, it did get into the crowd. That is never good. But I tend to think that was pretty harsh.

Rajon Rondo is scum. I guess playing with Kevin Garnett all these years teaches you how to be an absolute worthless human being on the court. How a veteran team lets itself get frustrated to that extent is mindboggling. I respect Doc Rivers more than any active coach in the league and he said it best. The Celtics are "soft". If you want to be tough guys rebound and play defense. That's how you earn respect in this league from opposing teams and players.

Looks like Rondo wants to gain more Twitter followers and appease the children on PSD with a little shoving match. Because they're the only ones who will criticize HUMPHRIES and not criticize a man who cost his team a game (and possibly 2 more now). When the Celtics lose the division by 3 games think back to these games Rondo missed.

For a leader and a player who has seen so much success on a veteran team, Rondo is the worst kind of player - a sore loser. It's even MORE embarassing that the Boston announcers praised him for being "scrappy". I guess that comes with living in Boston. That inferiority, Napoleon complex. See Danny Woodhead, Nick Punto, insert short guy overperforming.

If I'm a Celtics fan I'm pissed at my veteran team. As pissed as my coach is.

Wallace rushed in when the altercation had nothing to di with him and instigated the exchange with Garnett. Even though it was Garnett that grapped him by the hair and shoved him, it was Wallace that instigated it in the eyes of the ref

I thought wallace was just protecting his teammate... I mean 3 c's were basically shoving hump lol

He was. In the refs eyes though they would rather him stay away and not get involved.

Well, Rondo's just a very passionate player. And to be fair, Humps did shove his hand into KG's face for whatever reason. I like it. When this stuff happens, it's usually because another player does something that pisses off the other. LOL. Rondo like a damn chihuahua on Humps. Plus, after Brooklyn losing Wallace & Humps, you think Boston could've at least not gotten blown out.

This move solidified Rondo as the leader of the Celtics.

This move solidified Rondo as the leader of the Celtics.Yeah, but it's been obvious to me that past 2 years or so. Pierce is mostly washed up, KG is semi-effective, but Rondo is the core of that team.

That's going to be a problem because he's a head case. That foul on a scale of "Jason Collins" to "Ron Artest at the Palace" was about an "angry Jason Collins" (so about a 2 or 3 out of 10 with 10 being a hard foul).
