What games have the Celtics fans been watching? by Blackhawks 2010 Stanley Cup Cham Q: I have to tell you Celtics fans, Wes T. really makes you guys look like a bunch of whiney brats. It's people like him that give Boston fans a bad wrap. According to him the referees have been keeping the Bulls in this series, but he must be watching a different series then everyone else on Yahoo answers because it seems to me that most people are in agreement that calls have clearly been going Boston's way. There was the flagrant on Rondo that wasn't called in the most crucial point of the game and with yesterday's win could have knocked Boston out of the playoffs. There was the play that Paul Pierce drove to the hole and without being touched just threw the ball straight out of bounds right in front of an official and somehow Boston was given the ball. There have been numerous fouls on Boston that have been called on the Bulls; the most recent two coming in yesterday's opening quarter. One was between Rondo and Hinrich where Rondo threw Hinrich against the scorers table, a move that should have gotten him ejected from the game and should be reviewed for suspension (Dwight Howard was suspended for less then that). The other cam when Glen "Big Baby" Davis (what a perfect nickname for this guy, in this city) threw an elbow and Noah under the hoop and Noah was called for the foul. Then there ave been numerous fouls on Rondo against DRose because Rondo just isn't quick enough to keep up with him and the refs whistles are stuck up their a$$es. I could go on, but it would just be a waste of my time. I'm not complaining here, I know the refs have a tough job and they do the best they can. I just want to know what games the Celtics fans have been watching that can say with a straight face that the Bulls have been getting the calls from the refs in this series.

A: I think they are still watching old video from LAST YEAR...

two questions about stuff? by Machida666 Q: what did rajon rondo say about the trade for nate robinson i heard he didnt agree with it and what did tony cornheiser say about that sportscenter analyist that got him suspended for two weeks

A: Rajon Rondo said " I hope its for the best" "Eddie House can drop 20, 30 points off the bench too". Tony Cornheiser was suspended from ESPN for bashing fellow anchor Hannah Storm with rude comments on what she wore..

What if this happened...? by Raza (Nuggets Rule!) Q: What if the roles in the Boston-Chicago games were reversed? The Celtics down by two, get the ball to Paul Pierce, who drives and gets fouled hard by Derrick Rose (like Rondo did to Brad Miller). What would happen? I think it would be a flagrant and Rose would be suspended. What do you think would happen?

A: paul pierce would fall to the ground....have a siezure and rose "would' get flagrant....paul unable to continue gets wheelchaired out and then comes back in dramatic fashion and hits the gamewinner

Fantasy Basketball Trade? by omarion2322 Q: 10 Cat League Team is: PG- Rajon Rondo PG- Mario Chalmers SG- Stephen Jackson G- Ben Gordon SF- Jason Thompson PF- Al Jefferson F- Andray Blatch C- Dwight Howard UTL- Brandon Jennings UTL- Channing Frye BENCH Blake Griffin (INJURED) Rashard Lewis (SUSPENDED) J.R. Smith (SUSPENDED) Chris Anderson The trade was I give away: Rajon Rondo Jason Thompson Rashard Lewis for: Joe Johnson Brook Lopez Accept/Decline? Also whoever wants can rate my team

A: decline 7/10

Boston Vs. Chicago was rigged? by Ryan T Q: Personally i think that it was, considering dwight howard got suspended for an elbow, and rajon rondo had cracked kirk hinrich's head, punched brad miller, and then threw kirk hinrich into the scorers table. I think he should of been suspended, which with no doubt in my mind would of lead to the Bulls winning that series. But instead, rondo destroyed them yet again after a entire series of dirty play. what do you think???

A: i hate rajon rondo! he is such a dirty player!

wow the nba actually admited that they made a mistake? by Kerpal Q: wow it took them a while. but do they not relize that the have cost the hawks many games. example the first celtics hawks game. joe was fouled but no call and then paul pierce went the other way and made a lucky shot. the cavs vs. hawks in the regular season . there was no foul no lebron but due to superstar treatment, lebron got the foul call and the cavs won. the bulls vs. celtics playoffs. rondo should have been suspended for a game not just once but twice. cavs vs. celtics although the cavs won, this was a bad call. rondo goes for a lay up and lebron blocks and it was all ball but there is a foul call. etc. etc. these are only few compared to all the crappy calls

A: I remember that game in the Regular Season, Al Horford went straight up and they didn't call an offensive foul on LeBron...are the refs seriously one minded and think they have to follow the "Superstar" rule.

y did the celtics trade lil nate robinson? by Q: West is a useless back up, gets suspended, fractured his wrist, now hurts his ankle. he has issues so he is crappy. Green is complainig about his playing time and looks lost. Plus rondo fakes all those ankle problems he has and robinson filled in nicely for him

A: Guess he didn't do enough to keep around!He looked like a good spark off the bench.

When will people complaining about all this Non-Suspensions? by Dom Q: The NBA is a Business, the whole objective is to make $$$. Common sense dictates that David Stern wont suspend Rondo or Kobe for that matter because those guys attracts viewers. Viewers = TV Ratings TV Ratings = Commericals/Adverstising Commericals= $$$$$$$ So you people need to realize that the NBA is pretty damn corrupt, whether you choose to believe it or not. And you wonder why the Media loves Yao Ming? Its because China has a huge Population, and if the NBA becomes huge in China, that means...you guessed it more $$$$$ in Stern's pockets. Any questions? oh MC, how you got the that TC Badge is beyond me. Once you graduate from Highschool and enter the REAL WORLD, you will soon realize how money driven people are. You're living in a Fantasy world, where everybody loves everybody, the World is made of Marshmallows, yada yada yada. @MC- oh and another thing, who told you Sten has a Set Salary? He's the freaking commisioner. The SKY IS THE LIMIT on how much he can make. its shocking how little the "Expert" on this section knows about Human Nature.

A: Exactly. The NBA just extended the playoffs so that each series is a 7 game series...and for what...$$$$$$$. They also have a stipulation in the TV national agreements that the league doesn't make a penny until there is a 6th game. So look at the history...their have been sweeps and five game series...but for the most part the series have been going to 6 and 7 games. Atlanta & Chicago taking Boston to 7 in the 1st round...very questionable. Someone said that Howard is more important than Rondo. Not true...Rondo plays in Boston...Howard in Orlando...the media market in Boston is bigger. Orlando will rebuild when they can't afford Howard...and then Howard will play somewhere else...didn't Shaq...didn't McGrady...these superstar players left Orlando for nothing else other than money. If Howard was in Boston...Boston could keep him for his entire career. That's another reason why people feel that Lebron James will leave Cleveland...the market is too small. New York is much bigger where he can become a global icon like Kobe or even MJ. He can command more money not just from the Knicks, but from advertisers. The NBA going global is for money not just to play basketball. The international scene is ripe for an NBA market. They are even talking about having a league overseas too...its already in the discussions. Trying to get a league similar to NFL Europe...and its not because of the love of the game...its to make money. Stern has to ensure that the product is good enough for people to want to buy it. If people buy the product then the owners are happy because they are making money. Its a business plain and simple...and David Stern has to do what is in the best interests of that business. Good basketball...long series...well behaved players...large markets...new frontiers...all of these are his responsibilty. Like him or not though as a business man...he hasn't done bad.

i dont hear people crying for kobe suspensions? by J-MO (comeon magic) Q: last week you were all crying out for rondo to be suspended for hitting miller in the head, dwight got pinned for an elbow to dalembert, and kobe threw an elbow into artests throat and i dont hear you clowns calling for a suspension, personally none of the above should be suspended but it just goes to show how many of you disrespect other players just because they play on other teams just adding lakers did play a good game apart from a few incidents, im tired of people calling out suspensions just because that player plays on the team you would hate, i admit i dont like kobe one bit but i dont think he should get suspended

A: Are you kidding Stern would never let that happen? That's his Bi--h

are the refs pissing anyone else off? by infamous (Wade 4 MVP) Q: just saw on sportscenter that both Fisher and Alston were suspended. Honestly it's just pissing me off now. How does Rafer Alston getting suspended for giving a little slap on the head and then Rajon Rondo f.u.c.k.i.n.g throws kirk hinrich in the scorers table and he doesn't get fined or suspended.

A: yes there pissin me off.

Why does Rando get away with everything? by eri93 Q: Two horrible fouls... one on miller in game 5 and one on hinrich in game 6. Yet NO SUSPENSION at all!!!! Dwight was suspended for elbowing someone, but I think that personally both fouls, esp. on hinrich, that rondo committed were worse than Howard's foul. Anyone agree???

A: The one on Miller, if you watched his head you would see that he was in no way trying to hack Miller. The one on Hinrich was more acting than anything. Rondo isn't strong enough to throw Hinrich.

if the bulls do force a game 7? by NewKJT (22-6) #SeeRed Deng Q: and if the nba says that rondo dosent get suspended who wants to join me in a riot

A: lol im in man

Chicago Bulls and their fans should be proud? by Oh You Mad Cuz I'm Stylin On Ya? Q: This been the most entertaining first round series this year and the Bulls really fought to win. Personally, I didn't expect this to go to seven games in the beginning. After the questionable fouls and suspicious calls for both teams, I think this series was well played and any basketball fan should appreciate what happened with these two teams. Q: How do you feel about Eddie House's antics and overall behavior? Q1: If Rondo was suspended do you think the outcome would have been different? Q2: Can we expect the Bulls to make the playoffs and advance beyond the first round next year? Congrats Celtics on advancing. Down by the River, I asked this question in a unbiased manner. I didn't mean to piss anyone off. Trust me, that was not my intention.

A: ayy jade! Although I'm a little disappointed that they couldn't pull it off though, I'm proud of the way the bulls played this series. Q: I loved it when Eddie House made a 3 in front of the Bulls bench, and then got a tech, and the camera immediately went to the bulls bench during the timeout, and Lindsey Hunter was standing there clapping and laughing haha =D Q1: Yes Q2: You know, I didn't realize until one of the commentators brought it up, but the Bulls didn't even have Luol Deng playing in the series. They sure could have used him, but I gotta tell you that boy Derrick Rose is coming up and quickly becoming one of my favorite point guards. He just needs to work on his jumpshot over the summer.

The leaque protecting the Celtics? by Chika_Bwhaha Q: Dwight Howard throw a little elbow on Dalembert and he get suspended. Rajon Rondo technically pull Kirk Hinrich into the scorers table, and would only get a flagrant 1. Also that slap on Brad Miller only worth a normal shooting foul? Watch video which is more harsh? Dwight elbow - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sjYuOG1gMDw Rondo foul - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZN9fP-BPmY&annotation_id=annotation_692467&feature=iv http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6JpEx_CqOc 2 hard foul against 1 elbow. Should Rajon Rondo be suspended for game 7? @ CevS (Defensive End - #72) Ray Allen got suspended? For what which game?

A: Rondo. Not only does he knock Miller's Tooth Out & Bust Hinrich's Eye In Game 5. . . but gets rewarded for it. . . IT SUCKS. . . Then tonight he horse collars Hinrich in the 1st Quarter. . . If he was ejected like he should've been, Bulls would have won much sooner & easier. . .because Ray Allen wouldn't have been set up so well for those shots. If they don't suspend him for game 7, I am protesting. . .the nerve of those refs to call that horse collar a FLAGRANT 1. . .if that's a FLAGRANT 1, what does he have to do to merit a FLAGRANT 2??? Kill Someone??? The TV Analysists have been saying that Rondo probably won't be suspended, because they don't want a foul deciding the series. . .that's BS. . .he shouldn't be out there trying to take people out then. . .KILL RONDO!!!!

Should Rondo be Suspened for Game 6? by Metallica/Iron Maiden Are Beasts Q: Even though I'm a Bulls fan so you guys are going to think I'm being biased, i think he SHOULD be suspended! He had no chance at the ball, so why try or at least slap the arm or shoulder! But to go across and slap Miller's face like that, have Miller bleed and probably loose a tooth is unacceptable I don't care what kind of game it is, close in the closing seconds or a blowout, its a flagrant. I seriously hate how Refs referee games in close, late game situations and how they give the edge to star players and not treat everyone the same. Ex: Remember last years (or two years ago) game with the Spurs in the Playoffs. I think it was the Lakers-Spurs game, but I think it was Barry who threw up a three in th closing seconds to get a foul or tie, he gets roughed up, and no call?!?! I think Kobe was defending too. If it was Kobe, not doubt it would be a foul. Refs suck at doing their jobs, giving the edge to the star players and not making the right calls late in games when they matter. Feedback please. Plus I don't even think they looked at a Replay to see what kind of call should be made. So Lg, his hand barely hits Miller's face huh? Thats why he was bleeding and might have lost a tooth. Your an idiot. DG not LG. DG not LG.

A: First I agree with you Rondo should be suspended for the next game as that was a flagrant foul. I don't care how big Brad Miller is compared to Rondo. It would have been a flagrant foul in the earlier part of the game, why not at the end? Also is Replay an option to find out whether or not a foul is considered a flagrant foul or is it left up to the discretion of the ref? Hope you guys push Boston to a game 7. Go Cavs!

Shouldn't Rondo have received a "Flagrant Stupidity" call? by caixaboy Q: Ok...Ok...so we all have our opinions about whether Rondo comitted a flagrant on Brad Miller or not. What I don't understand is why the sports media jockeys are not criticizing the decision to even commit the foul in the first place. I'd like to know what other hoops fans think. In my mind, Rondo made what was one of the worst point guard decisions I have seen in an NBA game. Going up "strong" to foul a big man like Miller who is only a step away from a layup is the absolute worst decision one can make with a few seconds left and your team up by 2 at home. Don't foul and he makes the layup and you get another 5 minutes of play...true. But you get another five minutes of play in the garden...good if you are a Celtic. You foul and he makes it, then you face a foul shot to put your team behind and you go down 1 in the series. Sure this time around it worked out completely in Boston's favor. But as far as decision making goes Rondo screwed up big time and if I were Doc Rivers, I might suspend him for 1 game for comitting flagrant stupidity. I certainly would have ripped him a new one during post game review of the tape...

A: I'm a Bulls fan, but i'll try to answer to the best of my abilities. Yes, there was something exceptionally stupid about Rajon Rondo smacking Brad Miller. In fact, there were a few things. 1: The size disparity. Do you think that Brad Miller is waiting for the next time he gets Rondo on a mismatch? i do. Rondo is going to get sent to the floor, and he deserves it. 2: He admitted it after the game. If you take a shot at a guy, you don't go and broadcast it on national television. it makes you look bad, it makes your team look bad, and it makes your sport look bad. speaking of making the sport look bad, 3: The refs totally blew it, and the league backed up yet another one of their blown calls. I understand letting them play at crunch time. what i don't understand is Rondo blowing off at the mouth about it and not seeing any repercussions (sure, he may get a fine eventually, which will perpetuate the league looking bad) Points 1 & 2 are really the relevant ones, so by those, YES Rondo should have gotten a flagrant stupidity foul and possibly a smack upside the head from both Doc and KG.

Why are Chicago Bulls fans so hypocritical about hard fouls and physical play? by Bobby Q: 1) Rondo committs a hard foul on Brad Miller when he accidentally catches him in the face with his hand and draws blood. 2) Bulls fans cry and whine and want Rondo suspended from the NBA. 3) Tyrus Thomas wacks Paul Pierce in the face while also going for the ball. Blood was drawn and stitches were needed. No foul called. 4) C's fans know it was just a hard play and we say nothing. No complaining. 5) Kirk Hinrich drives Rondo all the way out of bounds on a box out long after the rebound had been made. Kirk is cheered and seen as a hero for this. Everywhere I look I see Bulls fans saying that they love how Kirk attacked Rondo. 5) Rondo retaliates to Kirk's dirty play and Bulls fans get pissed again and the whining begins. Hinrich looked like a lunatic and had to be restrained. He threw a punch and his fists were clenched ready to swing some more. But this is ok? So Bulls fans LOVE dirty and cheap players like Hinrich? I guess the fans take after their team. @SPARKY Good point. Here are some links to help prove my points. You can very clearly see Hinrich drive Rondo long after he needed to. Sorry but that's uncalled for and that started it. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-zy9I28-7M There's no video for Thomas hitting Pierce but here's 2 articles. One from Boston, one from Chicago... http://www.celticscircuit.com/ http://www.suntimes.com/sports/basketball/bulls/1553612,CST-SPT-bullnt01.article Now you won't find much about the Pierce thing because like I said Celtic fans can admit it wasn't intentional. Thomas was playing the ball just like Rondo was on Brad Miller. @DJ Seems Hinrich has taken cheap shots at players before... http://blog.mlive.com/fullcourtpress/2007/05/is_kirk_hinrich_a_dirty_player.html

A: Hahaha I love these Freakin babies sayin Rondo is Dirty and should be suspended, what have they been watchin the WNBA. I mean give me a break those are true playoff fouls that aren't dirty, yes hard but not dirty. No one should be suspended or anything. I mean people for real have you not watched the playoffs before.........or are your teams just not as physical or are stupid sissys who cry about stuff like this. Edit Sweet Lou: Dude you must be new to the playoffs or the team you like must be real soft. Because the playoffs is harder than the regular season sorry man it just is. They let more things go. Sorry if the Celtics are to rough for you to watch. They are one of the most pationate team we have in the league who let emotions get the best of them. Yes sometimes they need to calm down but they ain't dirty. Plus I'm not a Celtics fan I'm a die hard Suns fan, then a Cavs fan but both aren't playing right now so I'm going for my 3rd Favorite team the Celtics.

whats up with Rondo getting away with murder? by KJ Q: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9lC0YzMjEc first he knocked brad miller's teeth out and nothing happened then he throws kirk into the score table and still nothing happened is his moms maiden name stern? he thinks hes tough i hope he gets in odom's or Nate Robinson's face, or maybe artest or zack Randolph's. hope he gets suspended this time. hes a little Bit** i wanna fight him now

A: i think he has some anger issues remember he shoved Kobe during the season He is great Guard though

NBA declares no further measures on Rondo but no word on Hinrich's fate. Your thoughts? by Bobby Q: So far the NBA has decided Rondo was just acting in retaliation and he will receive no more penalites of any kind. They have yet to act on Hinrich who instigated the whole mess. Will he be suspended? What do you think? Hinrich's dirty play on Rondo wasn't the 1st of his career... http://blog.mlive.com/fullcourtpress/2007/05/is_kirk_hinrich_a_dirty_player.html

A: I'm so glad Rondo wasn't suspended........this is the freakin playoffs people not the peewee league for ya'll that think he should be suspended. So what, they got in a little "tussle" it happens when emotions fly in the playoffs. And plus who would want to suspend Rondo and ruin the best first round playoffs series ever..........that would just be stupid. The more passionate the guys get the rougher the game will become and the rougher it becomes the more intense and fun to watch it becomes. JUST LET THEM PLAY EDIT: I agree with Mr. T EDIT to SPARKY: Dude I like the Celtics a lot but I'm a die hard Suns fan man. Don't you think I know rules are rules (my guys Amar'e and Boris getting suspended for freakin comin off the bench) I know they have rules for a reason and I respect that. But sometimes you gotta let things go. its suppose to be rough. Everyone knows that Rondo wasn't trying to hurt Brad Miller. If you think so you are absolutly crazy........the foul on Hinrich though was questionable but not suspension material and even you know that.

Do you think Stu Jackson is the worst for NBA ? by Q: I think he is. Fouled play by Rondo just obvious and not suspended ? but Dwright Howard got suspended for one game. Ridiculous to me. And Ariza got suspended for a game against portland. Feel like corruption inside.

A: I think Stu Jackson gets the job done by suspending the right person who commits the flagrant foul intentionally and the person/s leaving the bench if there is an altercation for both teams. G0t it? Go0d!!!!

Do you think the NBA babies the defending champs? by Bobby Q: By not suspending Rondo in the first series or Perkins this series it seems like the NBA offers the Celts a lot of lee way. They're like the little brother who can get away with doing something but then you do it and you get spanked and sent to your room. Someone else asked a similar question but the "best answer" given was terrible so here we go again...

A: Bro i hate the Celtics but i hate when people here start talking about conspiracy theories in favor of one team or another.

wouldnt it be unfair for kobe or fisher to be suspended (more inside)? by LAL! Q: rondo got away with two very cheap shots and the refs didnt eject him or anything and the league did not fine him or suspend him so i mean it just wouldnt be fair... its all about consistency if you let rondo go they definitely dont deserve any suspensions agree?

A: couldnt agree with u more, rondos a b**tch

Are Bulls fans afraid of a blowout on Sunday? by Michael Q: Many Bulls fans are still complaining that rajon rondo needs to be suspended even after Stern agreed not to. Now that its going back to boston and Boston will be more revved up than every I see something similar to what went down last year when hawks played celtics in game 7 on road.

A: 7th game at Boston? of course they are

What are the chances of chicago bulls wining? by DontKnow Q: I personally think they are very high . Rajdon Rondo is most likely going to be suspended. The rest of the team cannot seem to control their fouls also, and the celtics look really tired. Also i think derrick rose is most likely going to explode against.

A: It's going to take a miracle to win against the Celtics during Game 7. I'm guessing but at most 5%.

If there is a game 7 Bulls vs Celtics? by alex z Q: Should Rondo be suspended for that game?

A: yes refs are acting up

Hahahahaha NBA cant suspend rondo because they like ratings!!!!!!? by Harold E. Q: hahahahaha how great is it to know celtic fans have stern by the balls????? im Not a bulls fan Im a celts fan loving stern right now!!!!!!! Rondo should make a rap like shaq did to kobe......''stern, tell me how my ass tastes!!!!!''

A: lol they love it but its not fair what message is that sending this might escalate

Do you find it silly that some NBA fans are saying Artest should be suspended? by Heat Fan Q: While he did make an altercation, he did not resists referees after he was broken down and there are more serious incidents like dwight howard who elbowed dalembart in head after shot, fisher's elbow, and rondo foul on hinrich off the ball in the playoffs,

A: Because of your reputation and past behavior, sometimes any action will cause people to panic and overkill. Dennis Rodman was a prime example of this. They will be watching Ron Artest like a hawk now, when they really should be watching that punk Kobe.

Both Fisher and Alston have been suspended for game 3, your thoughts? by John M4 Q: But of course Stern doesn't do anything to Rondhoe. (Rondo). Thoughts?

A: They were warranted. However I'm still miffed that Rondo hasn't been even mentioned by the league as far as to why he hasn't been reprimanded for any of his questionable physicality. Even Artest got the gate for his actions and he didn't even touch Kobe the way Rondo touched Brad Miller & Kirk Hinrich. There is obviously a double standard between large & small market teams. Even Fisher's blow to Luis Scola didn't compare to what Rondo did. You can go as far as to say that Scols even flopped after looking at the replay, but Miller & Hinrich were obviously upset after their altercations with Rondo. Rondo even drew blood, but nothing was called. Fisher, Alston & Artest never came even close to doing that. It seems that the NBA wants a Cleveland/Boston East Conference Final...more ratings...more money.

Rondo's flagrant will not be upgraded for Game 7.? by Mr.T Q: What are your thoughts? I think it would have been a terrible move for the league to suspend Rondo, essentially giving the Bulls the series. But that's just me. I didn't realize there were people who wanted Game 7 to suck....yes I'm talking to those of you who want Rondo to not play. Are you guys sticking up for the rules, or are you just promoting the easiest route for the Celtics to lose?

A: I for one want Rondo to play, just to keep the series alive. I mean, if the Celtics/Bulls play in Game 7 with the same style they have been laying this whole series (no defense but clutch performances), then this will be the bext first round series in the playoffs.

Which play was worse Rondo or Alston? by fergy3 Q: I honestly dont know how Rafer Alston of the Orlando Magic got suspended one game for slapping Eddie House on the head, when Rajon Rondo slapped Brad Miller in the face with the ball no where near his face, and literally throwing Kirk Hinrich into the scorer's table and did not get suspended at all! Any one agree? Which play do you think was worse?

A: Rondo should of got like a series suspension for throwing kirk. Rafer should of just got ejected for the slap in the head.

Will Kirk Hinrich be suspended and fined for Game #7 in the Bulls & Celtics series? by Bobby Q: After starting that fight with Rondo, he definitely deserves some sort of punishment. @b_britt88 I've been a C's fan since I was 6 years old back in the Larry Bird days. Sorry but nice try. A for effort.

A: Hinrich was boxing Rondo out and he got a little carried away with it and kept butt checking Rondo back toward the sidelines, Rondo got sick of being pushed and tossed him off of him by pulling on his arm and side stepping him. Hinrich hit the scorer's table and immediately got up and swung at Rondo, as in tried to punch him. Rondo threw his arms up to defend himself, not swing an elbow at his head. Hinrich got angry because his poorly veiled attempt at harassing Rondo with his butt backfired and he looked like an idiot as he got thrown into the table. Throwing a player off of you and swinging at their head are two completely separate things. They are both flagrant fouls, but only one is deserving of a suspension. However, no one will get suspended because Rondo escalated it, but not to the point of suspension. It would not be fair to suspend Hinrich. Anyway, to me, just let them play. Its the playoffs and people get emotional. Howard's suspension was completely different though because there was no reason for him swinging an elbow, no gradual escalation or anything, just Howard being ignorant.

Who thinks the foul by rajon rondo on brad miller should have been flagrant? by BEAT LA!!!! Go Celtics Q: that is crazy if its flagrant and they were talking suspension. Brad miller didnt get suspended for punching glen davis so I am pissed that Rondo almost got suspended

A: HA! Brad Miller didn't punch Glen Davis.

Did Karen Garnett blow off David Stern so Rajina Rondo wouldn't get suspended? by king_james_number_6 Q:

A: OF COURSE NOT!!! KG Pierce and Allen all did it themselves. =) That's how KG really hurt his leg, and how Scallabrine got his concussion.

If Rondo is suspended?? Game 7 to Bulls? by alex z Q: He better get a suspension.. and if he does that makes Rose's job alot easier.. GO Bulls!! If he doesn't get suspended for throwing Hinrich into the scorer table.. than why was Howard suspended?

A: he is not going to get suspended. where did you get that idea?

Should Rondo be suspended bro? by Suzuki Far Mar Q:

A: Yes and no. He made two plays for body instead of ball which in one case it drew blood. For that, he should be suspended, but Davey Stern wants to make series out this so he's not going to allow any more of the Big 3 to sit on the sidelines.

will Rondo be suspended this time for game 7? by KJ Q: hopefully he tried to kill kirk

A: dont u mean for the wole playoff, i heard he helped michael vick with the dog case hopefully he will get caught tomorrow night lol

Should Rondo be suspended for game 6? by Laury Q: Even though I'm a Bulls fan so you guys are going to think I'm being biased, i think he SHOULD be suspended! He had no chance at the ball, so why try or at least slap the arm or shoulder! But to go across and slap Miller's face like that, have Miller bleed and probably loose a tooth is unacceptable I don't care what kind of game it is, close in the closing seconds or a blowout, its a flagrant. I seriously hate how Refs referee games in close, late game situations and how they give the edge to star players and not treat everyone the same. Ex: Remember last years (or two years ago) game with the Spurs in the Playoffs. I think it was the Lakers-Spurs game, but I think it was Barry who threw up a three in th closing seconds to get a foul or tie, he gets roughed up, and no call?!?! I think Kobe was defending too. If it was Kobe, not doubt it would be a foul. Refs suck at doing their jobs, giving the edge to the star players and not making the right calls late in games when they matter. Feedback please.

A: Hell yea. He never even had a chance at the ball, that was just desperation, do what ever it takes to stop Miller from finishing. A shot to the head, draws blood, knocks teeth out, cheap shot. It could have been more serious if he had caused Miller to loose his balance. The officials should be fined also, for stupidity. Edit: Jcool - I watched this replay frame by frame on my DVD, Rondo was to the side and BEHIND Miller, He had NO Chance in Hell of getting to the ball, NONE.

Do you think Rondo should be suspended? Why or why not? by stylez-M Q: My opinion is that he should DEFINITELY be suspended for game 7. He got away with a blatant flagrant on Miller at the end of game 5; however, I don't think he should get away with this foul on Hinrich. If the NBA still has some integrity, I think Rondo should be suspended. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TZN9fP-BPmY&feature=response_watch

A: Not only does he knock Miller's Tooth Out & Bust Hinrich's Eye In Game 5. . . but gets rewarded for it. . . IT SUCKS. . . Then tonight he horse collars Hinrich in the 1st Quarter. . . If he was ejected like he should've been, Bulls would have won much sooner & easier. . .because Ray Allen wouldn't have been set up so well for those shots. If they don't suspend him for game 7, I am protesting. . .the nerve of those refs to call that horse collar a FLAGRANT 1. . .if that's a FLAGRANT 1, what does he have to do to merit a FLAGRANT 2??? Kill Someone??? The TV Analysists have been saying that Rondo probably won't be suspended, because they don't want a foul deciding the series. . .that's BS. . .he shouldn't be out there trying to take people out then. . .KILL RONDO!!!!

Boston Cheatics Rajon Rondo should be suspended? by king_james_number_6 Q: Dirty little thug throwing elbows.

A: YES!

Is there any truth to the idea that Rondo getting suspended is on the cards? by Chorus (23-6) Q: It's a common theme in many forums I've seen, however I haven't seen any official report that it is a possibility. I don't think it will happen, by now we all know that Stern lets Celtics players push referees (come on, someone tell me Zaza would have gotten away with shoving the ref during that confrontation last year, I could use a laugh) and commit hard flagrants without any punishment, I mean, as long as the money-generating teams get further, the miserable image and the ever-decreasing credibility of the league don't matter to Stern. I know if Hinrich had done that to a Celtic he'd be suspended, but is there or is there not any chance of Rondo being disciplined by the league, or is it like a pipe dream being brought up in forums only? EDIT: How did he "not make contact"? He grabbed Kirk on the arm and swung him into the scorer's table

A: I havne't heard of anything yet, but I'm all for it. This guy is slowly becoming the John Stockton of the new era. He's showing signs of playing dirtier and dirtier all the time. I still feel he should have been suspended after the hit on Brad Miller in the first place. And then after last's nights game there should be no doubt. It's of no consequence though. Even if they should win out of this series, the road will go through Cleveland. When Rondo attempts to slap at Lebron that way, the freight train will tear his arm off.

Rajon Rondo suspended? by Sparky Q: was it a hard foul on brad miller? in my opinion that was a flagrant foul and he should be suspended for the next game. what are your thoughts? watch link below http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfuca1JM410&fmt=6 officials are saying if the shoe was on the other foot there would be a suspension for a game.

A: Hell, yes that was a hard foul! He grabbed Miller by the face and yanked him to the court, and he should been called for a flagrant 2 and ejected from the game for that. But of course we all know that these are the defending NBA champs here, and they must of course go to the Finals, because ABC needs the ratings.......so what's a non-call or two when you have ads to sell? Pardon my ranting, but I'm f'ing sick and tired of seeing favoritism played in the NBA. Every game should be called the same, I don't care if it's the opening tip-off of the preseaon, or the last 20 seconds of the finals, a FOUL is a FOUL and should be called as such, period.

how come rondo was never suspended or fined by the league? by LAL! Q: for his actions during the bulls series?

A: Because suspensions in the NBA are inconsistent and arbitrary just like the refereeing.

Who thinks Rondo from Celtics should be suspended from that game of what he did? by Dania Q: omg that was not fair!!!! other nba players do dumb stuff and they are suspended from a game!

A: I do 100%

Should Rondo be suspended for Game 4? by Q: Hanging all over Wade and then tripping him is beyond dirty. That he was the one who ended up hurt is karma. Should Rondo be suspended for Game 4?

A: You must be a troll, if that was anyones fault it was Wades. Rondos a warrior by getting back out on the floor.

How long should Rajon Rondo be suspended for? by king_james_number_6 Q: That little dirty thug cheat - what a pathetic dirty play at the end.

A: he should be suspended for a game, but if they suspend him then it hurts their team and it is amazing that the whole united states of america can plainly see what he did but officials turn their heads, it is unfair and bad conduct to let him get away with it but read below, here a few rules about the nba 1. players can only feud because someone owed the other money or they messed with his girlfriend. 2. everyone has to pretend kobe bryant is a good guy at all times , even if it means lying to family members. 3. the nba doesn't"fix" games per se; the league just "orchestrates" them little referee assignments 4. stu jackson and ahmas rashad must always remain employed with jobs that are well beyond their "means" 5. the last 15 seconds of a fourth quarter or overtime morph into rugby and it's just implicitly understood.

How long Boston Cheatic Rajina Rondo be suspended for? by king_james_number_6 Q: He is a little dirty thug who has been spending too much time with Karen Garnett & Pauline Pierce.

A: I HOPE HE GETS SUSPENDED! I HATE RONDO!

would it be disapointing if rajon rondo is suspended? by broncos fan 24 Q: He shouldnt f that celtics need him tommorow the celtics need a break and win the series especially not havin kg and powe if rondo is suspended then suspend hinrich and tell gordon and salmans they cnt play then it would be fair.

A: he should be. that foul was brutal this ain't judo

How the **** did Alston and Fisher get suspended, and Rondo didn't even get kicked out of his game?!?!? by T.D. Q: It is ridiculous! They'll suspend Alston for a slap in the back of the head but they won't suspend Rondo for grabbing Hinrich's arm and hurling him in to the scorers table?!?!?! Does this **** off any one else?! actually tinealli, after he made it, he intentionally bumped in to Alston with his shoulder.

A: I think he should have got ejected. He could of caused serious injury if Hinrich would have hit that table in a certain way.

Why was Rajon Rondo not suspended for the flagrant foul on Hinrich? by K G Q: Horry was suspended 2 games for a similar foul on Nash. Is this as Shaq said, that big guys get it worse?

A: He should have been suspended. Especially considering the hit across Brad Miller's face the previous game. However, for a neutral I guess it's perfect. Now the 2 evenly matched teams remain evenly matched and give us (possibly) a cracker of a game.

should Rajon Rondo be suspended for his flagrant foul on kirk in game 6? by Q: should Rajon Rondo be suspended for his flagrant foul on kirk in game 6? especially after his flargrant foul on brad miller the game before? if not, he's getting away with too much.

A: Yes, but of course, since he plays for Boston, he won't be suspended.
