Rumor has it that Rajon Rondo and Boston Celtics head coach Doc Rivers got into quite an argument that involved an F-Bomb and a near fist fight.
If we are to believe Sheridan Hoops, the following took place:
One piece of information that has not come out during the alive/dead/alive/dead Celtics-Clippers trade talks is Rivers’ motivation in wanting to leave the Celtics.
It isn’t just that he doesn’t want to be a part of a rebuilding situation; it is because he has an intense dislike for point guard Rajon Rondo.
A source close to the Celtics tells Chris Sheridan of SheridanHoops.com that Rondo dropped an F-bomb on Rivers in the locker room during a team meeting, and Rivers went after Rondo and tried to fight him before the fracas was broken up.
I know, that was my reaction as well. To be honest, this should be taken with a grain of salt as it does sound a little bit ridiculous.
In the last week the Los Angeles Clippers and the Boston Celtics have discussed a deal that would send Rivers and Kevin Garnett to LA, a deal that looks to have fallen apart.
Rondo is known to have a temperament, but do you actually believe this went down? Emotions sometimes get out of hand, so it’s not impossible. Let us know your take in the comment section below.
