In ESPN's First Take, Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless discuss what the punishment should be for Rajon Rondo's ejection in Game 1. While both agree that Rondo was in the wrong, Smith says the league should take the "human element" and the "intensity of the moment" into consideration" in these types of situations.
"You've got officials taking over the game as if we've come to see them," he says.
"I understand inevitably they're going to call for a suspension, but I'm really not pleased with that at all," he adds.
