04:15 PM ET 11.30 | Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge admitted that he did speak to Rajon Rondo about keeping his emotions in check following Rondo's two-game suspension for inciting a brawl with the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night. However, Ainge also admitted that the very characteristic that makes Rondo snap also makes him great. "If it happens once in the next nine months, maybe that's progress, right?" Ainge said. "I don't expect Rondo will play the rest of his career and not ??? go over the line emotionally."

Why are people always so hung up on Rondo? He's a good player who keeps himself from being great with his surliness and his lack of a consistent jumper. Why he is so controversial on these boards is beyond me.

perhaps at one time I wouldve squared off w/ you... my new thing is, being objective. Doc mad, you should really try it. you come in daily and literally bust balls every single day.... every single day.

You come in a be non-objective every single day. Not to defend the grumpy Dukie, though.

Dude, I'm a Celtic fan but after seeing the incident KG, not Humphries started that mess by flopping. I think Rondo thought Chris really did level dude but he just nudged him off balance.
