Draymond Green: Banned Rockets-Lakers players got off lightly

LeBron James

Earning suspensions, Ingram (four games), Rondo (three) and Paul (two) were dolled out punishments by the league.

Any game of NBA basketball right now that features Lebron James in an L.A. Lakers uniform is going to have all eyes on it, especially when his team is losing. Late in the 4th quarter, a temper tantrum kicked off by Brandon Ingram would set off a fist fight between Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul. "If you wanted to suspend him one (game) I get it, just to make a statement".

Paul was suspended for poking at and making contact Rondo's face and throwing multiple punches at him.

Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis was escorted away by security following an on-court melee between players for the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets during last night's game in Los Angeles. But they could be in much worse predicaments, with Ingram, Rondo or Paul sitting five, seven or even 10 games.

"I came in and I knew that he (Paul) wouldn't tell me something that would get me in trouble if I said something", said D'Antoni when asked if his opinion on the brawl changed after seeing the Rondo spit video. Rondo and Ingram practiced Sunday but did not talk with reporters.

Leading US senator blames Saudi prince for Khashoggi death
He noted that the United States is continuing its investigation into the "unacceptable" incident. King Salman, 82, had handed the day-to-day running of Saudi Arabia to him.

National Basketball Association vice president Kiki Vandeweghe, the man in charge of handling these kinds of punishments, was in attendance at Staples Center witnessing everything first-hand.

The fight could leave with both teams without key rotation players due to suspension.

DeRozan is one of the NBA's best scorers, averaging 28 points per game so far, while Aldridge has been dominant on the glass, especially on the offensive side.

Rondo threw a punch at Paul after Paul poked a finger into his face. They got tangled up in the second quarter of a game then, and tensions were high when the game was over, with players like Paul Pierce needing to get between the two before everyone left the court.

VanDeWeghe clearly indicated that Rondo did not acknowledge spitting on Paul. "I think we take this opportunity tonight to go over the things we could have done better and be frustrated", he said.
