Rajon Rondo got his money’s worth on this one.

The Laker point guard did more than just get under the skin of Oklahoma’s Dennis Schroder, he gave him a little shot to the, um, “groin” during the Lakers win Friday night. That got him a flagrant 2 and ejection.

Rondo wasn’t done, he crossed a line yelling at the officials as he left the court.

Saturday the NBA fined Rondo $35,000 for “making unsportsmanlike physical contact with Oklahoma City Thunder guard Dennis Schroder, verbal abuse of a game official, and failing to leave the court in a timely manner upon his ejection.”

Like we said, he got his money’s worth. There is no suspension, however, so Rondo will not miss a game.
