Flagrant disregard for the rules

By: Sonny Bunch

John Schwenkler and I vigorously disagree on certain important topics. But we can both agree that Rajon Rondo’s foul against Brad Miller was flagrant, should have been punished as such in the playoff game last night, and that Rondo should probably be suspended for smacking another player in the face and knocking his tooth out without trying to make a play on the ball. Terrible officiating on that play. Terrible decision by Stern and Co today to not take any retroactive action.
