    My opinion is that UK players should fight each other. What’s your opinion? I’ll have a poll up later.

    Rondo has a pair, that’s for sure. Not sure going after Cousins is smart, but damn gutsy. Way to go, Rajon!

    Rondo looked like he was trying to start some sh*t. Love both dudes, but have to say that Boogie would stomp ol’ Rajon. Rondo better chill

    The original enes says. Big Cuz would step on Rondo like the piss ant he is. Beware the fake enes!

    So? Louisville teammates do this every game. So do Mississippi State players. The loser has to transfer from the team. I tell you, if MSU makes the tournament Renardo Sidney will be hard to stop once he gets you pinned between the arena’s seats. He knows how to drop elbows.

    maybe Cuz said something, but otherwise, Rondo was out of line. Once you go to UK, you are a Cat for Life!

    I’ll always cheer for a former Wildcat but in this case, I think Rondo was an asshole.

    I love them both, but Boogie was standing over KG and Rondo was standing up for his guy. You can’t let a rookie stand over your teammate while he is on the ground.

    Boogie was all up on Garnett and Rondo was trying to tell him to back off. No big thing as we all know NBA players fight like middle school bitches anyways.

    What the hell are you doing Rondo? Cousins could eat him for a snack. Love them both but that was uncalled for.

    Standing over top of somebody on the ground doesn’t make it ok to shove the guy. I know it’s just Rondo trying to tell Cousins to “back off” but it was still uncalled for and I’m glad he got the T for it.

    I’m a girl, but if you boys think that this is a fight, I can tell you didn’t grow up rough…this is more like a cat fight…

    I realize alot of people didn’t like Rondo when he was at UK but how you can put the blame 100% on Rondo is outrageous. I actually respect Rondo a lot more after this. I would hope some of our players would do the same for each other but something tells me some of them wouldn’t.

    @bmt22033, Rondo tried to tell Cousins to back off but Cousins slapped his hand away. Get over yourself



  18. Caywood Court

    Watch close, Rondo comes in and puts his hand on Cuz. Cuz smacks it away. Rondo then shoves Cuz. First, Cuz had no business being in there on top of Garnett, like he’s trying to start something. Rondo’s just protecting a team mate. Second, Cuz would squash Rondo.

    The blame SHOULD BE 100% with Rondo. It doesn’t matter if Cousins was standing over top of Garnett or even if Cousins shot his mouth off. There’s NO EXCUSE FOR PUSHING SOMEBODY unless you’re just trying to start a physical altercation. 100% totally uncalled for and 100% totally Rondo to blame for it.

    It looked to me like Cuz was checking on KG not “standing over him”



  22. sunnycat
    12:25 pm February 2, 2011 Permalink

    Maybe Rondo should find someone bigger to pick on. Rondo is just pissed that Cousins got to play for a coach that let the players play and get up and down the court. I love them both though.



  23. bmt22033

    @harlanfan – open your eyes and put your glasses on. As 18 pointed out, Rondo put his hand on Cousins FIRST.

    Hahaha checking on KG? Why in the hell would you check on the other teams player? Its not like he threw him into the scorers table. He dove out of bounds

    @bmt22033 So you are telling me if one of our players dove out of bounds and the other player was standing over top of him, you wouldn’t want our players coming in to help him? Rondo came in and nudged Cousins telling him to back off. Cousins swiped Rondo’s hand and Rondo pushed him. I’m saying Cousins should have backed off and not slapped Rondo’s hand and Rondo shouldn’t have shoved. Open your mind and quit being an insufferable prick. Both players were at fault. Rondo deserved the T, but both were at fault in causing the incident.

    Cousins was twice the Cat in half the time that Rondo ever was. Rondo should have been a Card, god knows he was only a “good” college player and that’s being generous. But you know who i blame. KG he’s tainted that whole team being the closet punk that he is.



  33. Escape Goat

    I got the impression that Cousins was just standing there to make sure he wasn’t hurt and/or help him up.



  34. Emerson Biggins
    12:36 pm February 2, 2011 Permalink

    If Rondo didn’t go to UK we would all think he’s a punk, because he is one. Cousins gets the bad press but Rondo is ten times worse then him.

    29. actually if you are going to say cousins shouldnt have slapped his hand away then rondo shouldnt have touched him in the first place. He could have said back off but he decided to put his hands on him and Cousins had every right to slap his hand away.

    Haha I’m waiting for someone to defend Cousins “choke” gesture when the warriors player was at the free throw line. If cousins didn’t go to UK, we would all think he was a punk too. Great kid off the court, but does shit on the court that baffles me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCY3sz3HwAM

    Remember, Rondo is from Lousyville after all. They raise boys there to want to touch other boys.

    One of the main reasons Matt chose it as his home. ha!



  47. William Braskey

    They are both punks, and we’d hate their guts had they played for anyone other than UK. The difference is Boogie is outgoing where you get to see his milder side.

    I’d sure as hell hope our current players would shove somebody away if they were standing over Harrelson laid out on the sideline.

    We have too many timid guys on this team, I’d say a little more Magloire, Cousins, Bradley would help this team out.



  48. wannawinputboobiein

    47. Thats exactly right. We don’t have enough punks on our team. Too many nice guys. I get the feeling that deandre and maybe doron would be the only ones willing to defend another teammate.

    where was the word meth even used, I was referring to the guys being a little over senisitive to a minor push, this is not a fight. I think everyone is anxious to read into things that is not there. If you were involved in this would you say you were in a fight, our a girly pushing match…..

    Rondo was an absolute TURD while he was at UK. I love very UK ex player but Rondo….he was a selfish TURD. Don’t blame Tubby…he was trying to make this kid a man. But in the end he was a selfish TURD. I wish Cuz would have crushed him. All of you who want to jump on the Rondo bandwagon because he is so good in the NBA probably felt the same way I did about him when he was at UK….but UK fans want to take credit for his great play. I don’t need to take credit for this TURD.

    I don’t Agree with several posts here… Rondo first took his hand and in a polite manner was telling Boogie to back up.. Then Boogie as usual acted like a jerk and swatted Rondo’s hand…. Then Rondo pushed him, as he should have..Just to let him know that he wasn’t going to stand for it… That is what I saw. Now watch it again and see if anyone agrees

    To me once they make it to the NBA I lose all interest. The pro game and everything that goes with it makes me sick. That is why I have problems with UK turning into a D-League team. Rondo wasted his college years. When I see him dominate in the NBA I keep thinking where was this at Kentucky.

    #52 you have no clue what you are talking about… If Tubby would have not been stubborn and adjusted his system to fit the strengths of the players he had “like Cal did last year” instead of trying to make them adjust to his boring walk it up the court style… his last 4-5 years probably would have had a much better outcome

    Rondo is like a little terrier. Totally fearless and absent of the knowledge that he isn’t as big as a St. Bernard.

    Rondo is a tool, what was he going to do besides get the crap beat out of him. It was just for show, he knows he can’t handle Boogie. Boogie told him Wall is the better PG and that was the only way he could get back at him; of cours as long as their were people to step in between them.

    Boogie was behaving for once!! Rondo has no business starting something, and especially not with another UK player!! I will always back Big Cuz because he always backs the Big Blue Nation!! I love Rondo, and I’m only a Celtics fan because of Rondo, but I think he needs to apologize for that one! That’s a Big Blue Brother, you play hard against each other, but you don’t take cheap shots…

    I agree with Bill Walton, the refs made the right call giving a technical to Rondo and not cousins. As Bill said: “What did Cousins do??”

    Garnett poked the ball away, Cousins went and talked trash, his usuall self, and Rondo checked the big crybabys @ss. Some of you need to pop Cousins titty out your mouth.

    Both former ‘Cats leave a nasty taste in my mouth; don’t care for either one. But, once a Loserville thug, always a a Loserville thug. Rondo is just a product of his environment.

    It’s the NBA, it was nothing. Boston won and Rondo with another double double and will be named a all-star again. Maybe if Cuz settles down and plays some basketball Cuz will get to be in Rondo’s class and a all-star some day but the jury is still out.

    Rondo is a punk. I was an assistant strength coach for Tubby and I used to take Rondo through his workouts. He always acted like he was better than everyone else. He’s good at bball, but it doesn’t mean he’s gotta be a dick!

    ya sad thing about half you people is if rondo had played for calipari and boogie for tubby youd b takin up for rondo more so then cousins. jus like if eric bledsoe and kelenna azubukie got into a scuffle half you people would jump right in bledsoes corner. ya rondo struggled in the half court in college but u can blame tubby for that. rondo has done nutin but showcase what hes had along in the nba

    Rondo was looking out for KG, when your teammate goes down you get worried about him.

    Cuz wasn’t having another dood put his hand on him, so he just pushed it away, nothing wrong with that.

    Rondo shoving him was just rondo being a dick. I love rondo, I love the celts, but come on man, don’t be a dick like that, but maybe Bill Walton’s terrible voice got on his nerves.

    I think they need to make folks clear out a tad more when a player goes down, this was much ado about nothing, but i’ve seen big tussles break out of such stuff. I see neither at fault, but that’s with the big blue shades on.

    Why was Cousins over there standing over KG in the first place? Come on guys…I’m a Cats fan too but if Demarcus had played at UofL or UT what would you all be saying about him everytime something like this happens?? Drama surrounds this guy and probably always will. Great talented player but to say he is a headcase is putting it mildly.

    I don’t understand harlanfan’s thought process. So, according to harlanfan, it’s OK to put your hands on someone, but not OK to stand close to someone who fell. That’s not the way I am for sure. You can stand close to me all you want but you lay a hand on me i’m gonna try to knock you out. Cuz did nothing wrong.
