Fan ejected from Staples Center after altercation with Lakers guard Rajon Rondo

The NBA apparently isn't done with fan incidents in the 2021/22 season.
A fan on the field during the Los Angeles Lakers 115-105 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Friday night was kicked from the Staples Center after what appeared to be an argument with Rajon Rondo.
It's not clear what sparked the incident in the second half, but Rondo made a fingergun gesture with his hand on the face of a fan seated on the sidelines. After doing it a couple of times, the fan was seen slapping Rondo's hand away.
Rondo briefly returned his hand to the same position, then the fan was kicked out of the game.
It's unclear what was said between the two or who the fan was.
Rondo also has his back to the action at this point.
Rondo, 35, currently has a $ 2.6 million one-year deal with the Lakers. He finished off the bench on six points and four rebounds in 14 minutes when the Lakers fell 0-2.
The incident is just the latest fan skirmish at an NBA game since fans were re-admitted after limited participation in the COVID-19 pandemic. Last season during the playoffs, fans sprinted onto the pitch during a game, spat on Trae Young, threw popcorn at Russell Westbrook, threw beer at Immanuel Quickley, and threw a water bottle at Kyrie Irving - which resulted in a fan being arrested. The Utah Jazz banned three fans for speaking insulting Memphis star Ja Morant's family in the stands.
While Rondo was clearly interacting with the fan on Friday night, it is evident that the NBA's problem with fans is not yet completely gone.
