rondo clotheslines dwyane wade

Boston Celtic Rajon Rondo went after Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat in the season opener Tuesday, October 30, as he drives to the hole and receives a flagrant foul.

*The NBA has just taken to the paint and there’s already a squabble stirring up between players. It appears that as the season begins, there may be a hater on the court.

Boston Celtics’ Rajon Rondo came out the gate locked, cocked, and ready Tuesday night. He wanted the game bad against the Miami Heat and Dwyane Wade was not giving it to him … so he took it! Well, he tried to.

Wade was almost put in a sleeper hold by Rondo as he attempted to drive to the hoop in the season opener against the Boston Celtics. Rondo would not let go of the ball or the fact that Wade was not going to let go of it. In the process of trying to stop Wade, he clotheslined him and grabbed his arm. If they were playing in the streets, he may not have survived that maneuver without a fierce beat down.
