Flimsy Report: Rajon Rondo Swore At Doc Rivers, Almost Fought Him

Considering all the missing details in this anecdote from Sheridan Hoops, this story regarding Celtics point guard Rajon Rondo and head coach Doc Rivers should be taken with a shaker of salt.

Chris Sheridan's source claims that Rondo said "fuck" in some way towards Rivers, triggering Rivers to want to fight him.


When, where, and why did this happen? Sheridan (or Sheridan's source) doesn't say. Without any more information, it comes across an incredibly vague, out-of-context occurrence surfacing now to capitalize on possible changes within the team. That's never happened before.
