LA Lakers star Rajon Rondo clashed with a fan , while Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard also had a skirmish. Online, fans , former players and pundits reacted to the combustible scenes at the Staples Center. Lakers icon Magic Johnson tweeted his disapproval of the row involving Howard and Davis. “Dwight Howard and AD got into a physical altercation on the bench…in my 42 years of being associated with the Lakers organization, I’ve never seen something like that smh,” wrote the NBA legend.

A fan sitting courtside during the Los Angeles Lakers' 115-105 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Friday night was ejected from Staples Center after appearing to get into an altercation with Rajon Rondo .

Rondo’s Los Angeles Lakers lost on Friday night to the Phoenix Suns 115-105 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. During the third quarter of the game, Rondo pointed at a fan sitting courtside and asked security to remove the fan.

Rondo had his finger pointed very close to the fan’s face in a manner similar to the way one would point a gun. He even mimicked pulling the trigger a few times.

The fan didn’t like having Rondo’s finger pointed so closely to his face and swatted it away (video here).

Kadarius Toney Ejected for Throwing Punch After Monster Performance

  Kadarius Toney Ejected for Throwing Punch After Monster Performance Giants wide receiver Kadarius Toney was ejected with 10 catches for 189 yards in the best game of his rookie year. View the original article to see embedded media.Giants rookie wide receiver Kadarius Toney was ejected in the fourth quarter against the Cowboys on Sunday for throwing a punch. Toney was having a breakout game after New York suffered multiple key injuries throughout the contest. Cowboys safety Damontae Kazee shoved Giants tight end Evan Engram when things were getting chippy between the two and Toney blindsided him in retaliation.

A fan getting ejected for slapping Rajon Rondo 's hand away from his face took the prize. Toward the end of the third quarter, there was a delay in the game as attendants cleaned up a spill next to the court. As everyone waited for play to restart, a fan sitting courtside had some words for Rondo . It's not clear exactly what he said, but in this video you can see the fan in the hat saying something in his direction.

The fan responded by smacking Rondo ’s hand away and was promptly ejected by security at Staples Center. Have a look. Lakers teammates Anthony Davis and Dwight Howard also had an altercation of their own in the first half of the game (video here). It is unclear what, if anything, the fan said to Rondo to trigger the exchange. While there will obviously be zero tolerance whatsoever for a fan touching a player, Rondo certainly seemed to provoke the smack by getting in the fan ’s face with the gun gesture.

Rondo on Saturday denied making a gun motion at the fan intentionally. The Lakers veteran did not disclose what was said between the two men. He said that he wanted the fan ejected.

The NBA should weigh in on the matter. There needs to be a good reason for ejecting a fan from a game, well beyond a player’s subjective wishes.

Did the fan cross the line? Did he say something wholly inappropriate? Or was the fan just getting in Rondo’s head and he didn’t like that? That needs to be disclosed.

The fan may very well have crossed a line. But at this point, Rondo looks bad for pointing his finger in the fan’s face and getting him removed.

Frank Vogel says Austin Reaves has earned his trust during Lakers preseason

  Frank Vogel says Austin Reaves has earned his trust during Lakers preseason Austin Reaves may have a chance to get some playing time for the Lakers after all, as Frank Vogel says he at the very least trusts Reaves to deliver when his number is called.But more important than any of us, at least for determining how much Reaves will see the floor this season, is the opinion of one Frank Vogel. And after the team’s final game of the preseason, the Lakers head coach was asked if Reaves had done enough to earn a role in the team’s injury-riddled rotation.

Los Angeles Lakers guard Rajon Rondo got a courtside fan ejected on Friday in a bizarre sequence. During a stoppage in play in the third quarter, Rondo went up to a fan sitting courtside and pointed his fingers right in the fan ’s face, doing a mock gun-shooting motion. The fan responded by smacking Rondo ’s hand away and was promptly ejected by security at Staples Center.

Los Angeles Lakers guard Rajon Rondo indicated that his apparent gun motion toward an ejected fan during Friday night's game was misinterpreted. The fan slapping away Rondo ’s hand appeared to have been the reason for his ejection from the facility, though it’s also possible that questionable language may have also been a factor. The fact that the Lakers lost 115-105 after getting outscored 71-41 during the second and third quarters likely heightened the frustration of all Lakers fans in attendance.
