Rajon Rondo Needs to Slow His Role

We all know about his questionable foul on Brad Miller at the end of Game 5. Then there was also his tripping of Kirk Hinrich on a drive to the basket in Game 5.

But then Thursday night, Rajon Rondo grabbed Hinrich by the arm with two hand and flung him into the scorer's table.

Rondo needs to slow his role, because, even though the intensity level jacks up in the playoffs, it's no reason to be playing dirty.

That's a few suspect plays by Rondo in the last couple of games. The chances of the league dropping the hammer on him (no, not the Polish Hammer, who had 11 points, 15 rebounds and 4 steals in filling in for the suspended Dwight Howard in Orlando's series-clinching win over the 76ers), but rather the disciplinary hammer: zero. Not a chance the league suspends Rondo for a Game 7 in what has been one of the greatest playoff series I can remember. Ever.

So if you haven't tuned in to any of the other games this series, I highly recommend tuning into Game 7 this weekend.
