    Seems steep to me but it is what it is.... they would probably lose both games with or without him....

    You may be right.  These games are going to be difficult for the Celtics with or without Rondo.  Maybe they will surprise us all and win both of them.

    I think that if the Celtics were to win both of these games, it becomes obvious to Danny to trade Rondo before the deadline. Tonight will be tough without Rondo or KG. I hope we see a little more of Moore tonight, he can provide the offense quickly even though Bradley is a better defender.

    The really sad thing is that R9R no doubt believes that the ref was in the wrong and should be suspended, not Rondo.

    He has been treating his own teammates and management very much the same way with his petulance and arrogance.

    How could anyone on this board suggest that this suspension is too steep or harsh?  He threw the ball at the referee AFTER a few choice words.  He might have drawn one game for throwing the ball and one game for what he said.  Who knows?

    I thought he got fouled on the play BUT the foul was not called.

    You cannot throw the ball at the referee.  Now everyone will say "how he threw the ball was not egregious".  It most absolutely was and he deserved to be suspended.  And let's not even pretend to act like we KNOW what he said to the referee.  A combination of what he said and throwing the ball AT THE REFEREE fairly drew a 2 game suspension.

    I think he, KG and Bass need to take this week, regroup and come out with a new attitude after the All Star break.

    eh..not buying that..sources around the C's organization and even us fans have noted how we see a change in his behavior and the way he communicates with his teammates and management.

    i do agree. as much as i think that it was a SLIGHT overreaction by the league, they gave out wat they thought was fair. he did throw the ball a little rough at the ref.

    could the ref have caught it and showed rondo up by continuing as if nothing happened? absolutely. but he felt insulted (he was) and acted accordingly..Rondo needs to just serve his punishment and come out after the All Star Break on a tear..lets be honest, maybe the extra rest can do him some good, him and KG can rest and clear their heads.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Rondo suspended 2 games : You really think that's the first time Rondo threw anything at something or someone? According to multiple sources, Rondo’s errors were being pointed out when he arose and began discussing the mistakes of his teammates. Loudly. Using harsh language. Coach Doc Rivers got up and fired back, and  Rondo threw a bottle that shattered the video screen.  He bolted from the practice facility and was prevented from returning when he tried later. http://celticshub.com/2011/12/13/must-read-rondo-opens-up-about-outburst-during-last-postseason/#more-23106

    im not gunna argue, bc as ive said before it wasnt a good decision to make and i dont support it. that being said, every member of our big 4 has now been ejected and suspended in a game(s). im not gunna throw a fit and act like he is j.r smith. it happens.

    Its the first time Rondo has been ejected from a game in his entire NBA career.  I don't think we can really get too worked up about it.

    Petey - I am one of those that thinks this was an overreaction.  Maybe what he said was so egregious, but the ball toss was not as big of a deal as the league is making it.  If the League was balanced, it would be a one game suspension to send a signal but not more because he didn't try to hurt or physically assault a ref.  He didn't go at the ref, he wasn't aggressive or threatening in approaching the ref.

    I wish the League was balanced about refs.  They need protecting but like all of us, they need correcting when they are wrong.  Joey Crawford is often TOO excited and takes away from the game but the league, knowing this, let him come back to ref.   The League needs to be more balanced in these situations.

    Agree that Rondo's reaction will tell a story.  He needs to come back by putting this behind him and playing with great energy and focus.  Look forward and forget the past.  Announcers will spend a lot of time on it.....but he has to get past it.
