Dalembert and Howard, before things got testy

Dalembert and Howard, before things got testy

Timely move, Dwight Howard. Everyone’s favourite all-around nice guy has been suspended for Game Six of Orlando’s first round series with the Sixers for his elbow to the head of Leo Rautins’ main man Samuel Dalembert last night. Sure, this is bound to hurt the Magic, but it could be worse — If Howard had actually been ejected last night, like he should’ve been, Orlando would’ve likely lost the game and been down 3-2 heading to Philly without their star player.

So yeah, if you ask me, Howard’s suspension was completely warranted. Still, there’s some head scratching going on around the league after Boston’s Rajon Rondo received no further punishment for his hard foul on Chicago’s Brad Miller with a couple seconds left in overtime of the Celtics’ win last night. Seems about right to me — Rondo is, after all, arguably the greatest point guard to set foot on an NBA court. Seriously, though, I don’t think Rondo’s foul was as big of a deal — If there were to be any changes, it could’ve been upgraded to a flagrant 1, which at least wouldn’t have drawn a suspension.

By the way, I can’t mention Rondo without drawing attention to his numbers against Chicago thus far: 24.2 points, 10.2 rebounds, 10.2 assists and 3.2 steals per game. Ronnnnnnnddddddddooooooo!
