You make the call: Should Rajon Rondo be suspending for bumping the referee?
The first was for arguing a foul call on Brandon Bass, and then Rondo bumped the official, which led to the 2nd technical.
Most people are pretty convinced that he'll be suspended, and people are wondering exactly how long his suspension will be.
Some Celtics fans (myself included) are hoping that perhaps NBA commissioner David Stern will show a little leniency, based on a few technicalities.
Realistically, Rondo's getting suspended for a game. But should that be all?
You could make a case that he tripped into the referee, and didn't intend to actually bump him. Then again, you could also make a case that it's completely irrelevant whether or not it's intentional. He bumped the ref, and that's all that matters.
Here's the bump, in case you haven't seen it yet (courtesy of Jose3030):
Another thing to keep in mind, for comparative purposes (courtesy of @bubbaprog): Magic Johnson got 3 games for this bump. I think it was definitely worse than Rondo's, but there's a precedent there. Here's the video:
What do you think? Should Rondo get suspended? If so, how long should it last? Let us know in the comments below.
