Rajon Rondo And Chris Paul Argue After Celtics vs Hornets Game

It Looks Like Rajon Rondo's New Contract Hasn't Improved His Sportsmanship

Rajon Rondo has signed an extension with the Celtics now, and has his big-money contract. But apparently it hasn't slowed down his trash talk at all, as he got in Chris Paul's face after the Celtics' game against the Hornets.

After the game, the media members were instructed not to ask Rondo any questions about Paul, since there had been a war of words between them before, during and after the game.

One of the appeals of Rondo is that he's aggressive... but he's sometimes TOO aggressive, and a bit thuggish, for lack of a better term. But he might want to slow it down a bit... just throwing that out there.

Unsportsmanlike? Please, Rondo is giving Chris Paul a taste of his own medicine, and as long as it doesn't escalate to an actual physical altercation let the man continue talking trash(dang, I miss the days of Gary Payton).

I think its great that Rondo is actually showing some passion for the game.  Not enough guys are that aggressive anymore.

Rondo had to squash all of his critics coming out of Kentucky including me. i'm all for Rondo being aggressive, you know when players sign a big contract extension their level of play slcks off. Rondo wants to be one of the top Point Guards in the NBA and being timid will not get you there. Guys trash talk all the time the best at it was MJ and Larry Bird. They weren't called THUGGISH, i'm tired of that word being thrown around loosely. Thug means to be a criminal who robs and committs violence. Wife beaters, assault on people are thugs not someone who trash talk! PAT think of a better term as you put it.

Way to be the bigger man CP3. He deserves to be on a much better team than he is at right now. He's too good not to win a ring, and same goes with The King.

Rondo is way out of line for this one. He's good but in my opinion Chris Paul is the one of the best if not "THE BEST" pg in the league.  If Paul had the same kind of help Rondo has with KG, Pierce, Allen, and now Sheed - I'm sure Paul would have a ring too.  Rondo just plays on a good team, Paul makes his teammates better.

the only sportsmanship he needs is his championship ring implanted in their forehead.

I wonder if Rasheed is rubbing off on him?

Rasheed Wallace acts crazy.....Methinks Rajon actually is.

They can't penalize him for stuff like that???...  Dang I wish he'd pull a stunt like that against the Lakers or the Nuggets(if they played)... I do believe Artest or Martin would tag that ass quick, fast & in a hurry.

Doesn't surprise me a bit.

Rondo's issues are indicative of the whole team.  Very aggressive and emotional but they can take themselves out of the game sometimes.

Rondo had better be careful. The next time he opens his mouth, all of his teeth will be down his throat.
