He didnt get suspended because nobody was watching that game! lol jk. IDK I agree with you though. If Rondo gets suspended for the Humphries push, then Jennings should also get suspended for the Beal push.
This was a real hard foul, Garnett's was part bad flop resulting in bad landing, Jennings just wanted to push and let it go, Rondo pushed and never stopped. To put it simple, this wasn't an altercation.
KG's foot was behind Hump's but it did not trip him. He had good footing on his way back, he just kept getting pushed by Rondo. I don't plan to go back and forth with one of those internet forum "he was tripped" guys that pops up anytime someone is embarrassed but I'll just post the video for comparisons sake.
I challenge you to find something that you're really willing to die for, and then live for it.
It was one shove. Not a punch, a kick, or even a slap. Rondo was going for blood, pretty much.
Jordan runs downcourt and dunks all over John Stockton, and a fan on the sideline starts yelling at MJ "Hey Jordan, pick on someone your own size!" Next time down the floor, he dunks on Mel Turpin. As he's running back down to play defense, he looks at the guy...shrugs his shoulders, and says "is he big enough"? The TV cameras caught it perfectly.
Subjective arbitrary handlings, and some double standards of course on certain people.
Really the Celtcs/Nets rulings were a bit punitive.
Rondo shoulda just got 1 game if Jennings gets none.
Gerald Wallace didnt do anything, just got randomly picked out cuz he looked "intimidating", but he coulda been token "player leaving bench" ejection based on the rule.
Humphries got pushed into the stands before he even knew what was going on.

Stern and Co. is not nearly as concerned about players pushing each other on the court as he is about players pushing each other in and around the folks in those high dollar seats.
While Humphries is an easy deserving target, 3 guys helped push him back not just Rondo.
And yeah this happening in the NY/BOSTON big market, gotta protect the interests there. No one cares what happens in Milwaukee and the Wizards
