Rajon Rondo is not going to be fined for sitting away from his teammates in the course of the waning moments of Los Angeles Lakers’ 115-99 loss Wednesday to the Denver Nuggets, in accordance with ESPN’s Dave McMenamin.
Rondo met with Lakers president Magic Johnson and common supervisor Rob Pelinka on the staff’s off day Thursday to debate his seat selection and the way it was perceived.
“They notified me that it was a league rule you can’’t sit there,” Rondo instructed ESPN. “I wasn’t conscious of it. However now I do know going ahead the place I have to be.”
Rondo’s gesture, on the night time James handed Michael Jordan on the NBA’s all-time factors listing, prompted criticism from former NBA coaches Mark Jackson and Stan Van Gundy throughout ESPN’s broadcast of the sport.
Rondo took to Instagram on Thursday night time to say the actual story final night time was LeBron, and never about him sitting courtside.
