Rajon Rondo Appears to Spit in Chris Paul's Face

  • James Harden Metta World Peace

The league said Ingram was suspended for aggressively escalating the altercation and throwing a punch in the direction of Paul, confronting referee Jason Phillips in a hostile manner, and instigating the overall incident by shoving Harden.

So when a brawl broke out Saturday night between the L.A. Lakers and Houston Rockets at the Staples Center naturally it was going to garner a lot of attention. Ultimately, the end result was that Ingram, Rondo, and Paul all got ejected from the game (and later received suspensions), but they weren't the only ones who got tossed from the arena.

Rondo, according to ESPN, now will have to convince the National Basketball Association that the saliva-sharing was accidental, which is a hard case to make, especially because he had told the Lakers that the spitting assertion was nonsense. He shared that the team is moving on from the incident and even practiced with Rajon Rondo and Brandom Ingram - two members of the Lakers who were directly involved in the altercation.

Ingram and Rondo will begin serving their suspensions on Monday (Tuesday in Manila), when the Lakers host the San Antonio Spurs. "I'm happy it's only four but I know I got to control my emotions a little better". The two could be seen having what seemed to be an emotional discussion, when Paul took offense to Rondo for allegedly spitting on him.

Luke Walton says Lonzo Ball and Kyle Kuzma will fill in for Rajon Rondo and Brandon Ingram while they serve their suspensions.


It was easy to predict that the Los Angeles Lakers would get off to a slow start and that it will take time for the players to get accustomed to one another. CP3 then put his fingers right in Rondo's face, and that didn't go over well at all.

Anthony, who tried to play peacemaker this time around for the Rockets, is probably wondering if he can call Vandeweghe and commissioner Adam Silver about recouping some of those lost game checks from more than a decade ago.

Asked if he had ever seen Paul so angry, D'Antoni said: "I've never really seen him spit on before". That's blatant disrespect. You don't do that.

- Rondo spit on a guy.
