Jersey Girl Sports fam, it seems Rajon Rondo does not take to people disrespecting his teammates. The hot-headed Rondo was ejected during Wednesday night’s game against the Brooklyn Nets after pushing Kris Humphries. Humphries’ purposed foul on Kevin Garnett enraged Rondo who responded. Check it out:
Garnett said he understood Rondo’s actions.
“We all back each other,” Garnett said. “We take a lot of pride in putting on this jersey. I know I do. This ain’t the Girl Scouts or the Boy Scouts. That’s what it is. It’s the NBA. You’ve got to get used to it.”
However, Coach Doc Rivers didn’t seem to take the same stance. He didn’t condone the violence, but seemed to understand it.
“All that stuff, that’s not toughness,” Rivers told reporters, calling his team soft. “That foul was a hard foul. It was an unnecessary foul. The play was over and then he pushed him down in the air. But I think that’s what they think of us: They think they can push you around.”
Well if Humphries thought that, he sure isn’t thinking that anymore. Later, he tweeted a pic of his injuries–minor scratches with a statement, “Anyone know where I can quick get a Tentis shot in Boston?”
Kris, honey…it’s spelled: T-E-T-A-N-U-S.
But I digress…
It is unusual for the NBA to be this crazy right in the middle of the NFL season, but it is getting insane! Between the Lakers‘ drama, Shaq’s comments about Dwight Howard and all these injuries, things are getting…well, interesting.
Rajon Rondo is a hot-head. If you recall, he hard fouled Dwayne Wade out of anger and was suspended from a playoff game last year for chest-bumping a referee. I hope he learns to get his emotions in check. Otherwise he could end up being considered the ‘Ndamukong Suh’ of the NBA.
And that is no compliment.
