To say Boston Celtics star Rajon Rondo on Sunday was frustrated is an understatement. The Celtics have been struggling this season and the players action is showing that. It a recent lost to a very bad by Detroit Pistons team Rondo lost his cool and got ejected. The Celtics loss the game 96-81. Giving the Celtics their 5 loss in their last 6.
Rondo loss his cool in the third quarter with about three minutes left. Rondo drove the lane towards the basket and the Pistons Greg Monroe appears to foul him but no foul was called on the play. Right after this happened Rondo gave the official an earful but shortly after a deadball Rondo throws the ball at the official. There is no question this wasn’t an accident. The ball hit the ref in the chest.
For Rondo’s action they NBA has suspended Rondo for two games.
Rondo was having a horrible game against the Pistons, he only had 5 points on 1 of 6 shooting. Rondo also had 6 turnovers.
Boston Celtics head coach on Rondo’s actions.
“You’re always disappointed when that happens,” said Celtics coach Doc Rivers. “You should never put yourself in front of the team. But it’s an emotional game. We can all agree that it was a pretty bad foul and a clear foul that wasn’t called. At the time, we were getting our butts kicked and the frustration was high and it’s a human game. I can guarantee you five seconds, 30 seconds after it happened, I guarantee you Rondo wished he could take it back.”

Miami Heat star LeBron James has already dunked on a kid at his camp now he is making kids cry. In Sunday’s Heat win over the Orlando Magic James tried to block a three pointer in the corner. James did not block the shot and his momentum took into the stands where he crash into a couple young fans sitting in the front row.
One of the kids James ran into starting crying . Then after the whistle James went over to the kid and he was fine and the kid had a smile on his face. That was a great move by James.
This is something this kid will remember for the rest of his life.
