The animosity apparently extended even further.
A heated Paul told teammates and coaches in the locker room afterward that Rondo’s girlfriend had sparked a verbal confrontation with Chris’ wife in the stands, according to sources.
Jonatan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle:
Lauren A. Jones of the Los Angeles Sentinel:
One person could see a shove when another person sees someone getting in someone’s face. There’s a fine line amidst chaos.
If Paul wasn’t talking about a shove after the game, I tend to think there wasn’t one.
Still, a verbal altercation alone is a lot here.
