A Frame-By-Frame Breakdown Of Rajon Rondo's Ejection

Trying to understand what Citizen Rondo was thinking when he bodied up that ref yesterday.

Posted on

Rajon Rondo, Celtics point guard and well-adjusted extraterrestrial, got tossed from yesterday's playoff game against the Atlanta Hawks after making intentional contact with an official. He could be in line for a suspension, though the league has yet to decide; the rulebook says that an ejection like his merits the suspension, but there could be enough uncertainty in his little chest bump that the NBA might use to try and avoid keeping him out.

Either way, it was weird, and it's worth trying to understand what Rajon might've been thinking when he took things to the next level.
