Have I ever mentioned I much I don’t like Chris Paul?
I don’t think he’s a bad person or anything. He’s just always struck me as overly cocky, but when he talks, he tries to act like he’s humble. Whereas Russell Westbrook is consistent.
Kind of like Rajon Rondo. He’s a dink. Always has been, always will be. So I’m not really stunned if he did actually spit in CP3’s face. I’m not saying I promote that type of behavior, but I do appreciate the result from it all.
You can’t tell from the tape — unless there’s a clearer shot of it that I just can’t find. But Paul’s definitely not the type of guy to throw a punch first — which isn’t a good or bad thing in this case, just an observation.
What I found funniest in all of this is how some of the young Lakers had to get involved. I’m willing to bet none of them have been in a fight like this. This is an old school brawl.
And as long as Rondo’s around, they’re always fair game.
