National Basketball Association suspends Chris Paul, Rajon Rondo and Brandon Ingram for brawl

Watch Nike’s Brilliant New LeBron James “Just Do It” Ad

Brandon Ingram shoved James Harden, which itself wasn't that outrageous, but shortly after that, Rajon Rondo and Chris Paul started throwing punches at each other, a fight that began after Rondo spit on Paul.

Once the fists started flying late in the fourth quarter, LeBron James' home debut with the Los Angeles Lakers was relegated to the undercard.

Rondo received a three-game suspension for throwing punches and spitting at Paul, who drew a two-game suspension for poking at Rondo's face and throwing punches at him.

Injury Report Lakers: Brandon Ingram (suspension), Rajon Rondo (suspension) and Moe Wagner (left knee contusion) are out.

James will try to get his first win on Monday when the Lakers host the San Antonio Spurs.

While Nipsey Hussle and Travis Scott were both quick to get up out of their seats and throw a few verbals in the direction of the players fighting, Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis went one step further. The two could be seen having what seemed to be an emotional discussion, when Paul took offense to Rondo for allegedly spitting on him.

VanDeWeghe's explanations don't satisfy me, and they certainly wouldn't if I were a Rockets fan.

His current deal is due to expire next summer, and former manager Arsene Wenger has said Ramsey could still agree new terms with the club .

The NBA announced on Sunday that Rondo and Ingram would be suspended without pay for three and four games, respectively.

He won't be the only player missing time.

"I don't know, I might rest him (on a) back-to-back", D'Antoni said. Not in sports, in the streets, that's blatant disrespect.

After the game, Rondo's former Boston Celtics teammate Paul Pierce said on ESPN that he was not "surprised at all" by the fight. "So in this particular instance, the multiple-game suspensions are pretty severe both to their teams and financially to the players". Ingram then came flying in and punched Paul in the back of the head.

- Rondo spit on a guy. "I think I'm going to leave it at that".

The game was the home debut of three-time National Basketball Association champion James and ended with a 124-115 defeat for the Lakers.
