NBA ballers Brandon Ingram, Rajon Rondo, and Chris Paul have been suspended for their roles in a 4th quarter fight on the court over the weekend.
The NBA released the following statement:
Ingram has been suspended for aggressively returning to and escalating the altercation and throwing a punch in the direction of Paul, confronting a game official in a hostile manner, and instigating the overall incident by shoving Rockets guard James Harden.
Rondo has been suspended for instigating a physical altercation with, and spitting and throwing multiple punches at, Paul.
Paul has been suspended for poking at and making contact with the face of Rondo, and throwing multiple punches at him.
All hell broke loose on the court after Rajon Rondo spit on Chris Paul. Whether or not it was intentional is still being debated amongst fans.
But, the on-court throw down wasn’t the end of the foolishness.
Rondo’s family members allegedly had a few unkind words for Chris’ wife, Jada Paul after the dust-up.

Chris Paul was still so angry after the game, multiple individuals said, because a member of Rajon Rondo's family made "inappropriate" comments to Paul's wife, Jada, in the stands after the altercation.

Welp. Everyone involved will have time to marinate and reflect on what they could have done differently during their suspensions.
