So when a brawl broke out Saturday night between the L.A. Lakers and HoustonRockets at the Staples Center naturally it was going to garner a lot of attention.
Look, as much as the media wants to promote brotherhood within a team, the fact of the matter is that Rajon Rondo spit in the face of Chris Paul and Brandon Ingram came over and threw a sucker punch. The Rockets alleged that Rondo had spit on Paul - a claim the Lakers have denied. Paul didn't play in Sunday's contest as he was serving the first game of his two-game suspension.
Paul will forfeit $491,781 in salary, Rondo $186,206, and Ingram $158,817.
Ingram and Rondo will start their suspensions on Monday night when the Lakers host the San Antonio Spurs. I understand maybe he gets one, but what is he supposed to do? However, in-game footage, you can see Paul wipe his face before confronting Rondo. Given that precedence, something approaching double digits for both Ingram and Rondo seems like it would have been more appropriate. "I don't know how to decide how many games". Video replays showed that Paul appeared to push Rondo in the face, Rondo responded with two attempted punches and Paul then tried to swing back before players from both sides could separate them.
He won't be the only player missing time.
Rondo throws a left hook at Paul and CP3 quickly returns the favor.
"In the heat of the moment when somebody does that, that's tough, that's really tough", D'Antoni said.
Not in sports, in the streets, that's blatant disrespect. It was a back-and-forth affair that the Rockets won, 124-115, and then Brandon Ingram shoved James Harden after the latter caused a foul call on Ingram, something not expected from the usually mild mannered Laker. "I think we take this opportunity tonight to go over the things we could have done better and be frustrated", he said.
