Rajon Rondo and Brandon Jennings aren't exactly known for being the most level-headed players on the court. Jennings said the two nearly ended up in a physical altercation in their heated matchup last Friday. The guards were trash-talking from the get-go and things got out of hand when Rondo gave him a "not-so-gentle nudge," according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “It was the first quarter,” Jennings said. “I thought at one point we were going to start fighting, but nobody wants to give up that money.”

Smart move by Jennings, because no one wants to get on David Stern's bad side. Plus, he would've had to deal with Rondo's claws.
