National Basketball Association hands down suspension for Rockets-Lakers fight

JaVale Mc Gee finds Le Bron James for ferocious slam in home opener

Late in the fourth quarter of the Rockets' 124-115 win in LeBron James's home debut at the Staples Center, Ingram was called for a foul on James Harden and pushed the reigning NBA Most Valuable Player after the whistle. Rondo, Paul, and Ingram were all ejected.

As Ingram jawed at Harden, with the official between them, point guards Chris Paul and Rajon Rondo exchanged punches a few feet away.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski now reports that Rondo and the Lakers will have to convince the league office that the spit was unintentional, but one detail appears to be 100-percent confirmed.

"That's unacceptable", Rockets forward Carmelo Anthony said of Rondo's alleged actions. Kiki VanDeWeghe, NBA vice president of basketball operations, was at Saturday's game and saw the incident live, and is reportedly helping with the investigation. Rajon Rondo was suspended three games, and Chris Paul received a two-game suspension.

Rihanna declined Super Bowl LIII halftime show in support of Kaepernick
Rihannawas not interested in taking a bow at the 2019 Super Bowl-and Colin Kaepernick reportedly had something to do with it. Kaepernick has famously kneeled during the pre-game national anthem in protest of police brutality against Black people.

"Paul has been suspended for poking at and making contact with the face of Rondo, and throwing multiple punches at him".

Before the extreme close-up, you can see Paul wipe his face as Rondo turned his head, and that's when Paul shoved his finger in Rondo's face and the punching started. "You don't do that to nobody - in sports, on the street". The Rockets took video of the game from the sidelines, and got a great view of Rondo and Paul during the incident.

Paul will begin serving his suspension tonight when the Rockets face the Los Angeles Clippers at Staples Center.
