Rondo vindicated in alleged kicking incident

Rondo vindicated in alleged kicking incident

Yesterday I (and a lot of people on the Internet) skewered Rajon Rondo for allegedly taking a swipe at Deron Williams during his game winning shot Tuesday night in the Mavs/Kings game. Turns out, what we thought happened wasn’t reality: The NBA has decided that there will be no punishment for Sacramento Kings point guard [...]

Did Rondo try to kick D-Will on his game winner?

Did Rondo try to kick D-Will on his game winner?

The Mavericks beat the Kings last night thanks to Deron Williams’ (yes, he’s still alive) buzzer beating triple in 2OT. Rajon Rondo didn’t play (back spasms, aka fear of getting booed) but may have tried to play some defense on the final play. Tim Cato of Mavs Moneyball: I’m not sure whether to call this [...]

Rainin J’s Ep. 8: Angry John, Angry Brad, and Evan Turner’s got jokes

I come out of the gate swinging at one of my favorite targets this season, Evan Turner and why he’s blatantly ignoring RJ Hunter on the floor. Jay King reins me in a bit, but I still had enough venom left for the Philadelphia 76’ers and the Jahlil Okafor incident in Boston. As far as [...]
