Did Rajon Rondo try to trip Jae Crowder from the bench?

Rajon Rondo is out in Game 3 and presumably for the rest of the Chicago Bulls-Boston Celtics series with a fractured right thumb. It’s unfortunate news for Chicago because Rondo NFL Jerseys China had played exceptionally in the first two games of the series, but don’t worry, Rondo is still doing all he can while on the bench — trying to trip Jae Crowder as he runs by the Chicago bench.

The Steelers got healthier on both sides of the ball, adding a hard-working pass rusher (T.J. Watt) and explosive receiver (JuJu Smith-Schuster) who should be able to contribute this fall. Watt can learn from All-Pro and workout lunatic James Harrison on the job, while Smith-Schuster adds to what may be the AFC’s most dangerous receiving corps. Mid-round picks James Connor and Joshua Dobbs are both high-character players who will add value on the field and in the locker room.

If these picks play up to their potential with the Browns, it could be one of the greatest draft classes in history. Jabrill Peppers is a dynamic athlete who can play 11 different positions on the field but hasn’t mastered a single one. DeShone Kizer says he has Tom Brady’s brain in Cam Newton’s body, but was too mistake-prone and inaccurate to lead Notre Dame to more than four wins last fall. David Njoku is an athletic freak, but has to prove he can be a consistent target against NFL defenses.

More than that, when used in the context of discussing trades, drafting, or player development, it’s usually used to dismiss any new or different way of looking at the game. Journalists like Mark Spector, Dave Staples, and Steve Simmons, bastions of the “traditionalist” view of hockey, often use it, or they claim that people are not a “hockey man”, as a way to dismiss anything that goes against their worldview or as an appeal to authoritative rhetorical fallacy.
