Former Kentucky guard Rajon Rondo has been suspended three games for his role in the brawl between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Houston Rockets last night.
He joins Laker teammate Brandon Ingram (four games) and Houston rival Chris Paul (two games) in the penalty box.
Sources: NBA suspensions – Brandon Ingram 4 games; Rajon Rondo 3 games; Chris Paul 2 games.

The brawl started when Ingram shoved Houston’s James Harden, followed by a shouting match between both teams. Rondo and Paul were face-to-face when the NBA declared the former Wildcat spit in Paul’s face, resulting in Paul putting his hands in Rondo’s face. The 13-year point guard then threw a punch, leading to chaos.
Take a look at the exchange below:

Regardless of how you feel about the fight between Rondo and Paul, what the hell is up with Ingram shoving Harden and then coming in out of nowhere to throw a punch? Ridiculous.
Not a good look for anyone involved.
